If you're able to place the HB-1 vertically and keep the tweeter around ear height, using the HB-1 Mk2 as a center should work quite well. Otherwise, I would just go with the HC-1 Mk2 as the center and they should work quite well together. One thing to note about the CCB-8's is that they are a bit different in timbre than the HB-1 Mk2's, specifically in the mid-highs. The CCB-8's tend to be a bit more forward/detailed than the HB-1 MK2 and HC-1 Mk2's. For movie listening, it may not be that noticeable as the material that goes to the left/right is a bit different from the center, and most of the material is being reproduced by the center anyway. For music, if you like to play out of all three speakers, then you may end up noticing a slight difference there.
