John, I think your copy of the link didn't happen how you intended.

WTF is this!?!? Have you all gone completely daft? It's like I don't even recognize this place anymore.

There's a 5" height difference between 60's and 80's (and a measly 2" more depth). Maybe it'd be an issue in our guest room with the 67" ceilings?

The only question that needs to be posed is, "Will they fit through the (garage) door?"

This video was the first I'd heard about those speakers at all.

Bobby -
Not saying I ain't daft. But....
The 80's need more space behind them than the 60's, and five inches in height is a lot if you need to place them under your screen.

I would have been nice to know about these speakers when they were offering a trade up...

Ken, I think the video is the first public mention of the 660, 880 and DSP lineup.

I'm also curious about center channel provisions for the DSP. It looks like Axiom is currently doing the VP 160/180. I'd like to know if there is possibility for a vertical center, and if there is any benefit to an omnipolar center.

I had asked about a vertical center consideration for the DSP a while back and they confirmed it was possible (with the M80).
