Oh, wow, the speakers are already in Spokane (maybe a 2.5 hour drive away), so they should be here Monday unless they get held up for no reason.

My older Rosewood 800s are more 'blonde' than the present finish on my M22s & VP160 that have more of a burgundy tone. All of my grills are Black/Charcoal.

Even with the slight mismatch in colour between the subs & the other units, they all look very classy...

All of mine are boring, standard black because I've never cared about form - only function. However, like other tastes of mine, that too is changing. Ultimately if I'm happy with how my evolved systems sound, I might get Axiom to upgrade me to purple heartwood or cocobolo.

Congrats Charles
It's always nice when you know your package made it across the continent and border safely. I find the anticipation only escalates knowing it's near by. Then on the delivery day sitting like a cat in the window waiting for the bird to come within reach.

Contemplating. I have spare Full Metal Brackets that I'll probably end up using, but I should probably use stands for now to play with positioning. I want to buy a new TV before most other HT upgrades, and how big could dictate how far back my seating is. Moving to 4K could mean I stay as close or closer, though, even getting a bigger TV, just to be able to resolve the bulk of the detail. This would all be easier if I had the money to buy everything at once.

Unfortunately, signature required means I don't get my speakers until tomorrow.

My friend helped me put up a new shelf for my center channel speaker. It was resting on two monitor stands on top of a bench before this. This wall-mounted shelf gets it up a couple more inches and allows me to place an EP800 below it. I don't think I'll ever have a magazine-worthy setup, but I'll settle for functional.

I got my first email from Axiom re: my LFR1100 Actives and accompanying ADA1500-5 amps. They're at the assembly and electronics stages, respectively.

Like several of you, I wasn't thinking I was quite ready to make the jump, but Ian came to me with a great offer, and I'm doing a lot of trading up to make it happen. I'm reducing from four EP800s to two, as well as removing the VP180 from my setup... along with trading up the original LFR1100s. I've always gotten my speakers in Boston Cherry, but this time I'm going for satin finish Rosewood. Oh, wow, and I didn't realize they went all real wood veneers. I guess it was fate.

I'm also getting four M3 in-ceiling speakers to go full Atmos whenever I get a new AV processor. I keep hoping Anthem will announce a new one.

And you read that right above, I'm trying my setup without a center channel. I've already taken the VP180 out of the chain, and I have to say that so far the phantom center seems to be working fine. I haven't tried sitting off to the side very far, so I'm not sure where it collapses.

If the actives give as large a sweet spot as we've been hearing about then the phantom center is a no brainer. I've traded in a few speakers to covert to walnut for the media room. I didn't convert my VP180 because I suspect/hope I won't need it.

(and you know what that means ... I'll have to trade it in anyway to buy something else)
