Any LFR owners who can comment on using a pair of LFR's instead of a L/C/R 3 channel front sound stage?

I typed it out then it didnt submit...might have 2 posts here lol...

I was daydreaming about the LFR's in the refurb section and was thinking they would obviously best my memory of my first pair of M80's.
Still cant believe how 2 speakers can sound like 3 (or more).
"I'd swear the center channel was turned on", how many times have you read that statement on a review?

Since making the tweaks in my basement, I no longer need the center for movies or music. I don't need the surrounds for music either - and that's with old M80s. What Ian says about not treating the surfaces is very true.

I've been back and forth between all the options available but I keep finding different aspects of each setup that I like. Eventually I decide moving things around once again is worth the risk. Its a good time to clean too.

I found panels on the wall in front of my seat to do definite harm to the darkness in my room. Very distracting. Without them all you see is the image.

I really like the HP version and I look forward to using them more in the very near future.

We have had a number of power outages today. The kids are hounding me to let them into the theater and I'm itching to have a round tonight too.

We have been running the LFR-1100's as a two channel set up for a year now, and watch a lot of movies in that system. They are an amazing speaker. Sometimes, with just those two speakers, you get that "sound from behind you" effect.

I do get the same effect.
I've turned off my surrounds many times, they're off now.
What difference do you notice up front since switching?

We never ran the LFR-1100's in anything but 2 channel... and went from M-100's to the LFR's. It was an easily noticeable difference - the speakers pretty much disappeared.
