I ordered the same setup as you. Two ones for the front and two fives for the rear surrounds and a mythos eight for the center. I got an onkyo NR807 receiver to match as I was interested in the networking capability. However, I ordered my speakers and receiver from Vanns with a package deal (except the eight center channel which they didn't have in stock). They shipped the same afternoon.

I have four Ones on order from 6ave. I got a good price (the one mentioned in this thread) during the "name your price" sale but I'm getting more and more tempted to cancel and place an order through someone I know can deliver them. $100 difference each from Vann's isn't terrible given the discount below MSRP. I think I'll hold out until the beginning of next week and if 6ave still can't give me an ETA I'll probably jump ship.

I contacted 6th ave yesterday to find out about the One's I have on order. They told me they're bringing them in from their retail stores this week and should be shipping the end of this week or beginnning of next.

That's the answer I got when I first placed my order...'we'll get them from our retail store and ship them out within 3-4 days.' Hopefully its true this time! It's already been a long wait!

Yup, that's one of the stories I've been told.

I ordered M1's from Amazon this week. They shipped the day after I ordered them. Is 6th Av's price better than Amazon's? (I hope you tell me it's not).

Who cares if they paid a little less... you are actually getting yours right away where as they are in limbo.

Does customer service not amount to anything anymore?

Was this handled by Amazon or OneCall? OneCall handled mine a couple of weeks ago, and it shipped that day as I ordered early in the morning. I was sufficiently impressed with their service to buy the Velodyne SMS-1 sub equalizer from them this week.

Here is a new surge protector device coming out later this month. Mantis had provided me a link to this website when I was looking for possible options to get surge protection for my ST's that would not require a bulky powerbar and since I can't get them to reach my Panamax.

http://www.midlite.com/products.aspx?catId=776

I am thinking of going this route rather then update my wall units since I can take the cables with me. I have the same issue with my plasma over out fireplace and the bulky monster unit would not fit with the mounting bracket.
I think they will be around 70-80 bucks and the midlite, decora or arenti options are all around 40-50 each anyway and again, can take with me or not easily moved persa if I move my units.

Thoughts on this option for my ST's? Not sitting in front of my speakers, but assume they have the proper connector to fit this cable.

Mine has changed to Shipping as well - would have been nice for an email notice or something... placed my order on the 10th. Part of me actually hoped they would be canceled since I can't believe I spent this much on speakers.

I received 2 out of the 4 M1s I ordered today. The rest are supposed to ship out tomorrow or early next week. I called and asked why I didn't receive an e-mail letting me know they had shipped and they said it must be a problem with their e-mail server; it sounded as if lots of people have complained about that. Be ware that they ship two in each box and the box is the size of the older 50" plasma tv boxes and probably weighs more...

I forgot to mention, if you call they should be able to tell if yours has shipped or not and can provide you with the tracking number. I plan to do that this weekend so that I can be home to receive the next set.

Right on, thats good to hear that they are finially shipping them out. Unfortunately for me though when I called to inquire they said they are still on back order and have them in route and should be shipping out sometime next week. I ordered on the 15th of Sept, so hopefully I will get them late next week if not sooner.

I'm waiting for everything to get here before I start cutting wires & set everything up for real. I'll take some high res pictures after everything is setup in a permanent position.

I did another chat with the CS and he said it should be going out UPS tomorrow. Funny how it is always the same guy no matter what time I use that feature. He said they email a tracking number when it ships, but who knows if they do..

I got it 1 day after it shipped, so if you don't see a tracking number on their website or in an e-mail, I would contact them over the weekend (they are open all 7 days) for the tracking number so you can know what day to expect it.

I'd like to find a base that's approximately 36x12x1 just to raise the TV 1" off the stand. Anyone have ideas for a non-diy solution?

You can try picking up some rubber feet from Home Depot. They come in all shapes and sizes. I've used brown square ones, 2"w x 2"d x .5" high. You can put one on top of each other to total 1" high. Do the same for all four corners of your TV's base.

The feet Idea is a god one but to get 1 inch up why not go to home depot and buy a Premade shelf and cut it to fit? They can cut it there for you. You could get one black and but it to fit underneath your tv only. If done right it would look good.

mvp2005fan,

I have an SVC pc12-nsd sub. The FLR&C sound the same but it seemed that the M7 did not stand out as much as the others, soundwise.

Mantis...that new surge protector looks interesting. If you have any idea on retail pricing I'd be interested in knowing what they'll run.
As a professional, what's your feeling on surge suppressor breakers when possible instead of point of use units?

Amazon. But let's not discuss price -- Either I'll feel bad for paying too much, or they'll feel bad for waiting so long.

Now my setup will be
M1 L/R
M3 C
M5 Surrounds

Sub remains happily TBD.
