The question was, how to congfigure the speakers I have available. What are suggestions for utilizing them. I, for a number of years, have had the 804/HTM1 as fronts and 604s as rears in a "media room" family room configuration with Mitsubishi 65" CRT RPTV. They actually worked very well. The fronts are dynamic enough to have a friend crawl over our couch one time to avoid the turbine sound in the opening scene of Castaway. The question is, with the new dedicated HT room, what to do with the sides and backs. I don't own DS3s yet but may buy them if I'm convinced Dipoles are the way to go for the sides and rears since I'm going to a 7.1 configuration now in the new dedicated HT.
Again, I have the following speakers available, 804s, HTM1, 604s, 602s and 600 series center channel. I'm considering buying DS3s if they would provide a significantly improved surround experience. I also like that they provide both Dipole and Monopole capabilities at the flip of a front switch. Monopole may lend itself to a better multichannel SACD experience and dipole for movies.
