Thats a really nice setup. I see the tweets from the center line up with the mains. Cool!

You know, I think the drivers in the new center look really good with the v2 M80

WOW GUYS! Those are really nice rooms. Rick that place is awesome and kmclavano that cabinet is wonderful. Rick, your review is gonna give me a speeding ticket on the way home from the beach. I am so excited to get back and play. I can't wait to play some movies and music when I get home.

Whenever I connected it up for the first time my initial reaction was that it blended so smoothly and effortlessly with the M80s that it didn't sound like there was even a center present due to the seamless soundstage I was experiencing.


I though exactly of the same thing. My wife noticed that too .... in her own way. She said:
"I don't know why you bought this one, it's so big and I can't even hear it, at least the other one (the VP150) I could" \:D \:D \:D

Is that what the M22's are for? Wide channels? Do they make a reciever that plays BOTH wide and heigth channels at the same time?

Sweet room Rick, somehow I've never seen pictures of it before (is this the first time you've posted them?). Do you have bass traps along the rear corners as well? Or just the fronts?
