Looking good! I have my QS8 brackets attached with wall anchors as well and so far so good. I was also impressed that the brackets easily handled the 12G Axiom wire. I have the stand for my VP180HP assembled, but not in use, and it seems to be well built. Obviously if you build one you can customize the height, which may be factor.

If I was building a stand, I don't know what height I would want. I have not yet decided if I am going to wall mount the next TV or just have it on the pedestal and stand it on a table. I guess it comes down to size and how hight I want the TV.

Right now we have the family TV mounted on the wall over the gas fireplace. as such is has to be mounted quite high. I find it a bit more anoying and hard on my neck as you need to be looking significantly up to see it. On a table of some sort it would be sitting quite a bit lower.

Right now I have put in some wood backing behind the drywall so that I can mount on a flush mount vesa tv bracket and put in a recessed plug just in case too, but if I am making a stand for the speaker, then it might just be worth my while to make it to support a TV as well

5' to center of box is standard roughin height for a tv power/data location. Mount usually goes immediately beneath that.

What I'm planning for my room is to have the TV wall mounted with the stand mounted center speaker beneath it and forward. The stand mount will allow me to bring the center into the room and have the drivers on the same plane as my LFR's. I want to hear the three front speakers without too much interference from over 60" worth of glass panel inbetween. Any thoughts about how a large TV can mess the up the front end sound?

No worse than bare drywall I'd guess. A plasma tv is not the same as a plate glass window reverberating. There is no re-emission or coincidence effect, just spectral reflection. Plus its likely angled down a bit, so breaking up late low energy reflections anyhow. Reflections of reflections.

Well, the speakers are in, but I have not got around to truly voice them (play around with placement and towing). I just figured using some math, that if I had them 3.5' from the back wall (to the back of the speaker) and 3' from the side walls, I would be sitting about 11' away from them at the spot that I would like to be sitting.

Needless to say I was very disappointed. they sound bla.. or more to point, not very spectacular. Now I know that the speakers in a different room (that was far more finished) I remember them sounding a far more WOW. I have my work cut out for me now to get the room to work with the speakers.

I have to get some more softer items into the room and a rug for the floor. And figure out that first reflection point. The work is cut out for me

Yeah well...good luck! It took me 6 years to get my basement sounding good. Good by the way is one notch above acceptable and one notch below terrific.

I had a friend over and we concluded that Holly Cole sounds way to bright in the room, but Dire Straights sounds OK but not enough base.

Then it dawned on me that the Pre-Amp is a new (used) component for me, and I have not done any setup on it. So it would have all the settings from the last owner including all the Speaker Size setups and crossover settings, along with how Audyssey MultEQ XT has set the room.

I need to get some sort of TV or HDMI monitor in so that I can configure the unit. Can't do it remote from my iPad

You might try the Marantz remote app on your IPad. Oops, should have read your post a little better.
