Yes , on walls will be better for my situation " for now " plus i want to get them in all white for my dark grey home theater. I just want to make sure that the vp150 isn't that bad of a center channel speaker. I've read the reviews and the

The sound quality will suffer a little by dropping from a VP160 to a VP150. And again, unfortunately, the sound quality will drop a little more by going from a full sized box speaker to the on-wall variety. Been there, done that. But if on-wall is w

I currently have V3 of vp160 , m22 , and qs8. I want to switch to all on wall speakers now but the vp160 doesn't come in a on-wall version. Will i be losing out by going from a vp160 to a on wall vp150 ?

I would still say "plan now" but don't pull the trigger on the speakers yet, and if you can hold off on getting a receiver for another year, do it.

If Mark Henninger and Scott are convinced, there is hope for me yet. I hope the futureshop in town gets an atmos demo. I'd like a date before I marry the technology.

Well, then sir you have been mislead by HTGeeks. Hands down, Atmos was quite the buzz at CEDIA. People are STILL talking about it. A number of skeptics in the "industry" left CEDIA really excited about it. Is it still too early to jump

Nerd rant: I spent sunday at the "church of research" and came to the conclusion doing nothing for ATMOS in a hurry is warranted. Its still beyond bleeding edge and the interview at HTGeeks with Craig Eggers et al. was very "salesy.&

Just to note, the frequency response on the low end will change significantly once they are ceiling mounted. The "plastic" tone could have been caused by vibration- again remedied by mounting. Its hard to do an apples to apples comparison

Okay, got a chance to compare these a bit to my outdoor M3s. This was the easiest/quickest way I could do a direct A/B comparison. This is not high end audio equip, this is my shop music system. Cheapo Sony AVR, two outdoor M3s (v4), and a cheap 10&q

I just ran some numbers on what I would get from Axiom if I wanted to trade in my QS8s (one pair from 2004 and one pair, current model, from late 2011 but not used until mid-2012) to swap to something like M2 for monopole surrounds to lead up to Atmo

It's AWD. It's got a bit under 40K. How about a paper maché chauffeur hat?

What concerns me about all the new atmos details is the new ideal height for side and rear surrounds of 1-1.25x the height of the mains. Basically 4-4.5 feet as Nick said. Not an issue for in wall speakers, but on wall.... Kind of draws away from

I only have a few minutes before I need to head out for something, but I do have some thoughts on this. M2s would seem to be a better match for you, if you want Dolby Atmos imaging to be correct, you will have to replace the QS8s. I know that Dolby

During my years in Tucson and Cohcise County, I wish I had a dollar for every time I've used that line. Seriously though, Bill Hader is great! He's so "off" and has no shame.
