Just a thought - the EP500 and EP350 share the same size box, but you get a bit better performance with the EP500. Dual 500's would be pretty awesome too. cool

Jason, good to know emotiva is working well with m80's. I might have to look into their amps again at some point. For now, I'm perfectly happy with how my denon 3808 is driving things though. Once I move into a larger room and add a vp180 I may consider external amplification.

I know, that's why I only have one. It's much easier spending someone elses money! grin

Dual ep500 might be overkill. i will need to think about a single 500 vs 350 *2. This seems to be a fairly common debate.

SirRandy,

I mention to my wife that the Q's were still being recommended. She said you all must hate her. Seems like the m2/m22 it is then.

I can understand for a living room, my wife doesn't want Q's either, but for the dedicated theater it was my choice. smile They really look nice flat on a wall and don't take up much room. You can also get a custom finish that will match your house trim/woodworking. But, you want to stay married I guess. smile

I can't even get real speakers into our living room, my wife likes her Sounddock as it takes up very little space. Luckily I still have my bonus room area and my Axiom's which are sounding great with the 3808 at "11" as the wife and kids are out for a couple of hours. smile

Speedie, tell your wife that we're concerned about her listening enjoyment, and that once she's heard the effect of QS surrounds she'd never want to go back, especially when she sees how small and unobtrusive they really are.
