No idea yet. My receiver doesn't do heights, wides, or Atmos, so I'll just use them in a secondary system until I have a receiver that will help me utilize them in my main system. Until I can move into my basement, I'll probably use them to listen to music while working down there.

I've been playing both DVDs & Blu Rays from my BDP-S590 on my new Sony KDL55HX850. Absolutely stunning PQ & audio performance. Upscaling 'The Wild, Wild West' DVD produced visuals that were indistinguishable from BD to my eye.

Haven't tried 3D though - not much in to it.

If they are still available, the S590 is a great buy.

My Sony BDP & Sony 55" LCD TV from last year are still stunning for me as well.

Upscaling DVDs works really well on most material on a BDP that is really quite inexpensive now...

I chased the FedEx truck in my neighbourhood yesterday & sure enough it pulled into my driveway. The FMS 16 speaker stands arrived OK but I can't open them till Xmas.

Still waiting on my HG Rosewood M22s but they are probably still in the paint booth at Axiom...

Well, after a couple of months wait, my HG Rosewood M22V4s arrived today. Being enveloped in a fine cloth sack was a nice touch & the aroma wafting out of the carton was wonderful.

They are a work of art & well worth the wait. The Cabinet Crew should be justly proud of their work - my thanks to them.

The newest colour of the veneer is more red than the previous rosewood, but they look way better next to the older coloured EP-800s' than the black vinyl. The new attachment hardware to the FMS-16 stands is better & more solid than the previous V3 type as well.

We christened them with a movie tonight at -10 Db - 'Lucy' Blu Ray. Really quite an interesting story & very enjoyable - worth a watch IMO.

The new M22V4s sounded as good as they look. I'll run an Audyssey calibration soon but I expect little change from the V3s...

Here's some pics of our new toys - they are gorgeous on their stout FMS-16 stands.

Ignore the outdoor reflections & for some reason the floor is not the right colour in a couple pics as it is much darker.

The Mansfield Beech VP160 is certainly the 'odd man out now'.
