The alternating coloured drivers remind me of Oreo cookies. Therefore, I approve! smile

Nice setup. Congrats.

Thanks i've got over $15k into my system now and it's always being upgraded....work in progress as I always say.
My latest addition was the Samsung PN64F8500 3D/HDTV
Which won the 2013 Value Electronics Shootout HDTV of the Year Award!

I mean this in a friendly way. smile

Have you considered a dedicated room with an emphasis on setup?

As Franz Ferdinand would say "You could have it so much better." wink

Its a good thing planning can be fun too. I have been in the planning stages for a couple of years now.

The good news is that you have plenty of performance there to keep you motivated for the "someday" smile

Cheers.

As for setup I doubt many people here even know the proper height to set their Surround Channels...in case anybodys curious the tweeter for surrounds should be set 2'-3' feet above the listener at the seated posistion and the Front Sound Stage should have the Tweeters as close to ear level as possible.

How many Alaskans can we fit on these forums anyway?
( j/k)

Our surrounds are certainly not 2-3 ' above ears (maybe 6 to 8"), but you still wouldn't know they are there.
The QS8s disperse sound very nicely for this purpose.

Nice Paradigms.
Haven't heard some in years now.

Ah well Western Canada is basically Alaska....
But I sure do love Canadian Speaker Manufactures like Axiom & Paradigm. But for Subs if I was to buy one today i'd would have to go with HSU Research you won't find a more powerful sub especially anywhere near their prices. VTF-15 will be the next Sub I purchase...but I've already got two and I dunno know if the wife would approve of a third. lol
