Hello,
For this application, I would think the Micro would do fine. The Tweeter looks to be quite similar to the Titan's. Another option would be to upgrade your fronts to a larger speaker like the Monitor 7 V.2 and hopefully find a pair of Atom V.2's.

While the newer versions will be similar, it would be ideal to keep everything in the same series.
Cheers,
JJ

Hello,
I wouldn't say they would overpower the Center Channel so long as they are level matched. Monitor 7's are great Speakers. Monitor 7's were my first pair of quality speakers and the start of my audio affliction. Purchased them my Freshman year in College.

If you could find Version 2's, you would have a proper timbre match as well. If available, only positives by upgrading to Monitor 7's over Titan's. Especially with music.
Cheers,
JJ

Hello,
I would honestly stick with Paradigm. Also, checkout audiogon.com for used Paradigms. These Speakers keep their resale value like none other. And with good reason, they make excellent speakers.

Hello,
The SE MK II are from circa 1992-3. While there are not too many huge differences, there is the fact that the SE MK II uses as Soft Dome Tweeter rather than an Aluminum Tweeter. That would be the biggest difference and the age being an issue by now. Also, include Audiogon in your search as it is a very popular site for Paradigm.

Hello,
That is truly sound advice. Having the front stage be as close as possible is of the upmost importance.
With the Center Channel being the lynchpin in almost all HT Soundtracks, I completely agree that if upgrading the fronts, upgrade the center.

Hello,
They should work fine. There is not a huge difference as there is in the now 15 year old SE Series. Especially if used for Presence Channels. I look forward to hearing your findings as I do not know many who have gone for 9.1 or using additional front speakers with specially encoded media. I realize Yamaha has used a setup like this for years, but it will be interesting with media that has been designed to use these channels.
Cheers,
JJ
