I placed my first order. 2 m80s, 1 vp150, 2, qs8s. Went with Boston Cherry. Can't wait to hear them. This will be the first set of decent speakers I've ever owned. \:D

Good luck with the wait. I think you'll be fine for awhile with the 80s set to large until you get up to a sub.

Get your demo movies all picked out in the meantime.

Congratulations. That's a very nice first order. I started out with just a pair of M80s.

I'll be sure to post pics, but unfortunately pics won't come for more than a month (house doesn't close until June 15th). I'll likely need to order a couple wall-mount bracket things for the QS8s before I get into the place. I may be able to post a first impression prior to the closing of my house, though, because I'll be looking to try them out ASAP. \:\)

Is 12AWG preferred for speaker cable?

12 or 14 gauge should be all you need, Monoprice.com has good quality/inexpensive wiring which makes 12 gauge easier/cheaper to buy. The Qs8's come with a wall mount 'T' bracket which allows for flush mounting.
