Which other brands/models of center channel speakers would you indicate to match well with B&W 603-S3 fronts?

One with Kevlar drive units and aluminium tweeters :)
I'm not sure to be honest can't you get a hold of B&W centers?

If you care about the continuity of your front stage, you'd best stick with the LCR60 S3. Center channels are extremely important in HT apps as they carry the majority of the dialogue. There's nothing worse than noticing the pan from left to right because of mismatched timbre. Google the B&W center, there are plenty out there for sale.

Hope this helps.

none other than B&W's...

best sonic match will be the center speaker from the 600 S3 line, if you can't find that, a 600 S4 center would come 'close' too, the new 600 series would be last resort option, will sound similar, but will have some different sonic characteristics...

Keep them spinning,
