I ordered the speakers late Monday and they arrived Thursday morning. What great service. I got M22ti's for mains VP150 for center and (3) QS8's for surrounds and rear center. I can't what to hook them up at start auditioning them. I may just have to leave work early today.

Typing is overrated. Have fun with the speakers.

I doubt your on the board tonight, but enjoy your speakers. Crank them up and enjoy.

Sounds like a great system (pun intended) I'm very interested in hearing what you think of them. Especially with the QS8 in the back.

I know you aren't asking me, but my single QS8 in the back sounds great. Not very many titles use it right now. I'll take whatever I can get. I hope more titles are encoded discrete 6.1 in the future.

I was planning on getting one of the new SVS PB1-ISD box sub's, but I'm waiting to hear some users reviews on them before I commit. Others I'm looking at are the Adire Rava or Darhman, Paradigm PW2200 or the Axiom EP350.

As far as setting up the system, hopefully I will get time this weekend to setup the surrounds. The mains and center of course are no problem, but I will need to do some re-wiring for the surrounds. Bummer

I forgot to mention that I do have several titles now that support the rear center and I'm sure that will be many more coming out in the near future.

I had a chance to listen to my speakers over the weekend. I only had a 5.1 setup done. The rear center QS8 will require a complete cable run and I did not have time over the weekend to do this. After I got the entire system calibrated using my Avia DVD, I put in AOTC and sat back. WOW!! I was totally impressed. From everything that I was hearing the M22ti's were supposed to be the best part of my setup however when it came to movies it was the VP150 center and QS8's that really shined. I was able to clearly hear things from the center channel that were muted when playing through my old JBL N-Center. I've seen some reviews by people that the VP150 was not as good as others but I'll debate that any day. The imaging of the QS8's was incredible. In the opening scene's of AOTC when the Naboo cruiser passes underneath you coming from behind the QS8's made it really sound as if it was underneath me. It sounded this way despite the fact that I had to mount the speakers to where the bottom of the QS8's are about 7.5' high on the sidewalls. The accuracy and imaging of the system is awsome. I am glad that I decided to go with the Axiom's. Unfortunatly I'm in Texas all this week for business. I cant wait to get back home to audition more of my favorite movies. When I get home I will be looking into completeing my system by replacing my Sony WM40 Sub.
