The only down side is your A/V location.
Placement on a half wall means you're only getting half the performance.
I would consider using a full wall center placement. That way the whole room would benefit.
Wow, MSB Link DAC III, talk about a blast from the past. Are they even in business anymore? I used to drool over their stuff back in the day when I wanted to put together a good 2 channel system.
edit They sure are still in business. Awesome performance from what I've heard in the past but as always outrageous prices! lol
So I guessed I missed this reply and I know this is digging from the grave...
But yes MSB is still alive and well. In fact I used to work for MSB back in the late 90's. In fact I built most of the original Link/Gold/Platinum Dacs. Its funny tho I didn't own any until I scored this one off ebay back in 2010.
