Yes staying married is critical given the size of our building loan - not to mention besides the speakers thing she is a pretty cool wife.

Lol, well at least you made me laugh.

Actually I don't mind it that much, just not the same quality as my Axiom system.

QS8's in my living room and my wife doesn't mind. I didn't really give her an option to choose something else though....

Well I think I shot myself in the foot when I used to rig up some ad hoc wall mounts for my mission 701's many moons ago. Now nothing can go on wall - just in.

However she has no issues to the 80's and 180. So I still consider myself lucky.

Loc: It's all about the location.
At the risk of sending you to the doghouse, mrspeed....

If you can run the wiring unseen through the walls, I'll put it out there that the QS8's may in fact, have better waf than any of the bookshelf speakers for surround duty. The Q's, aside from being more suited to their intended use, are actually very compact and unobtrusive(imo) when hung up on the wall. As mentioned already, you can get a custom finish, or go with a paintable finish to make them all but disappear.
