The M22's will be eventually placed in a different room that I will be turning into a theater room. I will mount W3 and w100 on this wall around the tv, probably in January.

Glad you are happy with the TV now, it sucks to buy something and not be happy with it.

I have a 50S1 set in the main room just for watching TV, haven't really noticed any green push with it, but I haven't run my calibration disc through it either. Ignorance is bliss with that one. The S1/G10 panel is pretty darn good though.

I was wanting the newer Panasonic V10, but changed my mind and decided to put the extra money into HT instead.

Although I'd really like to have the W100 and W3 speakers done in piano black finish to match my tv. I may have to spend extra on them to do this. Oh well, it's just money, right?

Life is short. I say as long as you are not skimping on the bills or endangering your kids education, enjoy it while you can.

Of course this is also why I would make a lousy investment adviser.

There's truth to it though Murph. You need to enjoy yourself. I like to save money and pay down the mortgage and those kinds of things, but if everything went to that and there was no playtime, I'd go mental.

True that guys!

Murph, if I ever make it out to PEI I'm stopping in. I have a feeling we could have some interesting conversations over a beer or two \:\) .

I think you are right Cam. I'll make sure the beer stays chilled until it happens.

I was looking for some sort of cabinet/shelf to use for components. I was wanting to stack them on the left side, under the TV and put a small subwoofer on the right side. (Picture is on page 13). (Note: These 2 speakers will be replaced with W3 and W100). There is an existing stud located about even with the left side of the TV.

I found this product, made by Sanus Systems, the same company that made my tv wall bracket.

http://www.sanus.com/us/en/products/elements/component-wall-mount/VMAV

Has anyone tried these? I'm trying to keep the footprint as small as possible, they extend out from the wall only about 14 inches. Some other shelves extended out about 19 to 22 inches, and was way too much.

Some reviews said that it was hard to place some components on these with feet that got in the way. But it seems to me that perhaps the feet could be removed.

Since the only speakers I have at the moment are 2 M22's, I've had my receiver set on stereo mode. But, last night I tried the music mode and the difference is like night and day. In music mode, I'm assuming, my receiver is in 5.1 mode. The amount of bass I hear went down, but the sound clarity went way up. Now when I listen in stereo mode, the sound is a little muffed sounding. It's probably because it's a cheap receiver but since it's the only one I've got, I don't know the answer to that question.
