Hey Guys,

I going to order a pair of QS8 in the very near future and I just wanted to get your opinions on where I am going to install them.

The room is 12' wide by 17' deep. I would be sitting 5' from the back wall. The mains and center are 3' from the front wall. My existing surrounds are bookshelves on 42" stands just behing my listening position. My new QS8s would end up 12" behind me and 36" above my ears directly accross from each other.

Will that be acceptable ? ideal, minor or major compromise ? I have to work with the room I have and unless I switch everything around, not recommended by the wife,it's the best I can do at this time so I hope that placement will be fine or even great.

Thanks

Riker

Assuming no typos (12 inches behind, 36 inches above ears) and on the side, this sounds pretty textbook to me.

ditto all the agreements. They should be either directly to the side or slightly behind (12" would be considered slightly).

You will be VERY happy with the surround field. If you have a Blu-ray, or HD DVD, player, get sunshine. The surround audio on this disc is nothing less than stellar. I can't decode DTS HA MA, but the core track was amazing.

Thanks Guys.. I feel better now.. No I don't have HD yet.. no rush because it means not only a new player but a new tv as well for me.. and my current TV has great PQ, even if it's not HD yet..it's a 34 inch CRT Sony XBR.. capable of 1080i.. It's big and bulky, it weighs a ton..but the blacks are blacks and the whites are white.. no complaints except for the size.. next one is most likely going to be a plasma.. 60".. Panny or Pio most likely..

No, I guess I don't need a new TV for BluRay or HDDVD.. but then again, I do not have ANY HDMI inputs.. so as long as I can display the 1080i via component output of the HD player, I'm good to go.
