Thank you smile I'm looking forward to this opportunity smile

edit: just found your link to your setup...drooling. Nice to see it. Wow, I can't believe how incredible that setup is. Wow. Can't wait grin

fred: I didn't realize he had the rosewood. I was already drooling over that on the axiom site. smile The wife was too. Great WAF points. Just can't afford it.

Thanks for the info on the center. I can't accommodate for it right now, but in my future setup for sure. I'll definitely have to look at that option down the road

This page has the latest pic of my system. It has 3 m22's across the top, with a second set across the bottom, except the bottom center is an in-cabinet Vp160.

My Sc-67 is $1330 from Amazon. I'm sure you can pick up an Sc-61 for much less.

wow i like smile So these new pioneer amps have no problem eq'ing multiple center channels?

amazon.ca, bestbuy.ca both have no pioneer elite besides the vsx series.

found this on ebay

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NEW-PIONEER-ELITE...=item416f86032a

It would be 100-200 cheaper to buy it on ebay, compared to my local store.

That's same price as I was thinking. It was the $1300 you mentioned. It i was paying $1300, I'd get the 67.

So far I've had no trouble driving double mains and center at high volume with the Pioneer or the Denon.

Looking forward to your visit. I'll probably learn a few things from you and I hope the audition goes well.

Nick, yes a vertical M22 makes a fine center channel speaker. The only sense in which some speakers are "designed specifically" for center use is the the one Fred has mentioned: the horizontal form factor meets the aesthetic or space requirements of many(not me). A vertical speaker can have an inherently wider and smoother horizontal dispersion.

I didn't catch what led to the "have no problem eq'ing multiple center channels" comment, but there's only one center channel. If more than one speaker is used in the center channel any calibration or room eq settings have to go through the one channel to the speakers identically. If the speakers are the same model and positioned similarly in relation to the listener, this works quite well.

smile I'm flattered you say that, but I don't have much to teach. Just a big enthusiast. From the looks of your setup, I'd say it's quite the other way around. I can't wait to chat to you about your setup smile

It'll go great. I'm told I'm a great people person. It'll be a fun visit together I'm sure. Anytime two enthusiasts can get together and listen to great equipment, it'll always be good smile I have absolutely no friends I can talk passionately about stereo with. My close friends all laugh at me being "obsessed" with stereo. lol

I try to tell them I'm a greenhorn when it comes to HT. I don't even scratch the surface of "obsessed" lol

That's kind of what I was getting at I think. That makes sense.

Still, for some reason my mind is trying to convince me that the center channel needs to be "horizontal" for wide dispersion to mix properly with the left and right mains properly. In typing that, I realize it's false. But the idea of multiple bookshelf speakers for centers is a very new notion for me.

I definitely believe you. I should strongly consider a pair of m22s for centers.
