    Welcome to the forum. Timbre matching will be a bit off. If you like the end result, that's all that really matters right?
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    Default Matching Center

    Kenny, the C.W. is that the center and front speakers should match as closely as possible. In fact, some enthusiasts use three identical speakers for both fronts and center (and do not use a dedicated center design, which has its limitations). Matching the rears is desirable, but less important. Your Monitor 30 will match the CS1 better than the Paradigm speakers do.

    If you like the Paradigm Titan Monitors, you may prefer to use a "phantom" center (by adjusting the h/k receiver set up with the NONE center option), so you could try that. Users often state that they prefer this to a poorly matched center. You could also try using the CS1 center, with the Monitor 30 as front speakers, since they do match, and see which option you prefer.

    If you don't like the "phantom" center, and prefer the Titan Monitors to the Polk Monitor 30, then you may want to consider investing in a matching center speaker. You will have to decide if you think the investment is worth the anticipated improvement in sound. It depends on how important you think the center speaker is. It is my understanding that its main job is to "anchor" dialogue on the screen, especially if seating positions are not ideal.

    I have no knowledge of the Titan Monitor personally, but if any of this does not make sense, some of the more senior and/or knowledgeable members will surely advise!
