Okay, I have decided to purchase the Onkyo TX-NR3007 along with the Oppo BDP-83, and hook all of this to my existing Panasonic Plasma TV 50". The speaker system I am looking at is the Epic Grand Master - 500. My biggest problem is center channel location.
I was wondering, if I place the CC on top of entertainment center angling down would that work? They say front speakers tweeters should be inline with center channel, I think? I do not have much "play" to offset tonal balance,can only go right and left. So does that mean adjusting front speakers instead? If center channel was on top of entertainment center, then does that mean mounting the M22's to the wall instead of stands? Any advice is appreciated, recommendations welcomed about equipment I have chosen too! Thanks
Oh, one last question, if I go with the Onkyo 9.1 channel, can I still run 5.1 for now? (Need to save for additional speakers)
Thanks again.

Cannot find where to attach a picture of the entertainment center!?

Yeah, I wouldn't stress too much on the tweeter lineup. Angling the center down is a popular option. Me, I angle my center up, but I'm weird.

As to how to post a picture, either you can upload one in the gallery (make sure it's around 800x600 pixes, not too much larger), or you can host it somewhere else and then link it in a regular post, using the [ image] [/image ] tags.

SNAF I use two center channel speakers, one below and one above the screen and just angle them directly towards the listening area. As long as you angle the speaker to your listening area you should be just fine but make sure the leading edge of the speaker isn't recessed in the entertainment center, have it even with the front edge or maybe protruding a tad out from the edge of the entertainment center shelf.

You can run 2.1 with your 9.1 Onkyo if you want, no problem whatsoever.

Yea you can, unless that's the grandchild sitting in the other room I'd guess you're younger than me and I've been a dumb ass my entire life ... you just have to learn how to work with it. \:D

Thanks for the info! I had a carpenter friend build it for me, the two panels are both removable on both sides of TV, so I can get an even BIGGER TV later! ;\)

Now second question, should I hang the two front speakers, are put them on stands? Thanks again for the input! \:\)
