Did you find it distracting when you placed yours in front of the listening position?

I haven't bought the surrounds yet. Maybe sometime next year.

Don't you need some more fronts first?

I thought that history was good enough to keep over here in my thread too.

Bought 2 M22 bookshelf = 2
Bought 2 M22 in/on wall = 4
Returned 2 M22 in/on wall = 2
Bought 2 M22 on wall = 4
Bought 1 VP100 in/on wall = 5
Bought 2 M3 bookshelf for a gift = 7
Gave the M3's away = 5
Bought 1 VP150 in/on wall = 6
Bought 1 EP175 = 7
Returned 1 EP175 = 6
Bought 1 EP350 = 7
Bought 1 M2 real wood = 8
Bought 1 VP160 in cabinet = 9
Bought 5 M22 bookshelf = 14
Sold original 2 M22 bookshelf = 12

Wow, that's a lot of transactions. It's called keep fiddling with it until you get it to sound just right. And I haven't even got to the surrounds yet. I'm prolly on my 6th blu-ray player, and 2nd receiver, and 3rd universal remote.

Extra speakers not being used:
1 M2 real wood bookshelf.
2 M22 on wall.
1 VP100 on/in wall.
1 VP150 on/in wall.

I'd have M80 if my viewing wall was wide enough, but got to fit in all into 5 1/2 feet.

Going to be mounting 3 M22 bookshelf above my 65 inch plasma this weekend. Then still have 2 M22 bookshelf to mount under the TV to get them off the floor, but will do a little later, when I have the wood painted and mounted for them.

Well, here's a picture of the board mounted to the wall with 5 lag screws, 3 speaker mounts and wire run. Almost done.

Hard time getting a decent picture with this cheap POS camera.

May have to find a way to tame the bass. Right now there is too much bass. Ran 6 position Audyssey, it did a lot of bass cut in the equalizer, but still too much. Didn't realize those 3 M22's on top would produce kick-ass bass.
