Okay, here's some pics....
Didn't bother with too much of the EMPs alone because if you want to see what they look like you can see that at the EMP website. These are mostly comparison photos.
The E55Ti tower box. My son is 10 years old and he's just barely taller than the box. Well packaged, box within a box.
The EMP (left) and Athena F2 (right).
Athena AS R1 (left) vs EMP E55Wi (right) surrounds.
EMP E56Ci (left) vs Athena C1 (right) center speakers. Ha, the Athena is dwarfed!!
Gives you an idea of how large the EMP center is. EMP tower (left) Athena F2 (middle) and EMP center (right).
EMP surround on the wall.
Up close EMP center with grille off.
The room photo. That's a 46in Bravia and you can see how big that EMP center is.
Note the Vizio soundbar just under the tv. Acoustech H100 just to the left of the tv also.
So far so good. Outstanding quality and very well packaged. Good out of the box sound. When they get loosened up I'll run MCACC on the Pio 1021 to tune them. I can already tell they are very laid back and not bright at all. Will post more impressions after a few days use and equalization.
