With the addition of 'wide' surrounds and such, are we headed in this direction for HT sound? First on the front wall, then on every wall?

This isn't really new. RBH offered something exactly like this, called the CinemaSITE. CinemaSITE even had matching columns for the surrounds, as well.

It was discontinued in 2007, according to the RBH website. It is a nice idea, since you can have a beautiful looking home theater, without having to be a master of carpentry (though you may be able to hire such a person to do it cheaper). It was probably discontinued due to not enough people interested such a product. And the price, for the RBH product.

Reminds me a little of my setup, only on a bigger scale.

I never said it was new, my question is in regard to this becoming the next 'must have'.
First, 5.1, then 6.1, then 7.1, with 7.2, etc.
Now wide, surrounds, and more upfront AND the key, a/v receivers that support all this.

So what was a concept years ago, is now being supported much more broadly. This link was just a version that puts everything around the tv in a convenient package as opposed to some on these forums who already have the tv area surrounded by speakers (say like Ian in a 10.2 configuration).

3D was not a new concept either, goes back decades actually, but is it now the new must have (and might stay around) concept?
3D came and went a few times over the years but looks alot more mainstream now than it ever did.

So, is this wall of sound the new bar for HT?
When will this expand to every wall (L, R and rear?)

I have a 10.2 if you count two centers as seperates.

As long as it sounds good and you can afford a set up like this then why not? I htink most people still won't be able to afford anythng remotely similar if this does become the new 'standard'

Indeed so, chess; the trend is clear: the required AV equipment will expand to the point that there will be insufficient room to accommodate humans, only the Audyssey microphone at the sweet spot.


-----------------------------------

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
