>>We still need to get an area rug in the middle, but all the ones my wife likes are 2 to 3 grand

Tell her that a larger TV would look much better than a rug for less than 3 grand!

Room looks awsome!

TV? What tv? I don't know what you're talking about...At least you got a killer sound system.

Room looks great. Couch looks very comfy. Thanks for letting us into your home.

Very nice room!

And, you might know your TV is due for an upgrade when the speaker on top of it is BIGGER than the TV itself.

Looks good, Shawn. Can't tell exactly from the picture, but the QS8s might be only about 3' behind the couch, and if so they're positioned very little different from the suggested side wall position about 2' farther back than the listening position when the setup is 5.1 rather than 7.1.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. But of course, I can't take credit. Everything in the house (except for the Axiom's) is my wifes doing. My job is to show up, don't ask questions, load the van, don't ask questions, then go back in and pay. Oh yeah, and don't ask questions.

Peter: Really glad I went with the 600. The immediate room is 6800 cu ft but, (depending on what you count in) is open to ~ 12,000 to 15,000 cu ft. Even with that volume, it pressurizes things quite nicely. But the room nodes/modes have been wicked. I've tried that thing in a number of locations, and that left corner is the best peak/null and wife/marriage compromise.

John: The sofa/couch is exactly 3ft off the back wall. The bottom of the 8's are 74" off the floor, and they are about 15ft apart. Because of the openess and lack of reflective boundarys, by ear, I've got them goosed by about 2 to 3 Db.

Your home is extremely nice Shawn, the system fits very well and the 600 looks mighty comfortable ... I know the 600 can be tricky regarding placement but I'm glad you found a suitable location. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Who's job is it to catch the lamp during the loudest scenes of your favorite movies? I forsee a new sub rating system in the works...
1 star = lamp moving
2 stars = lamp tipping over
3 stars = lamp falling over
4 stars = lamp falling off the sub

Happpy New Year !!
