Yep that's exactly what I heard. Maybe some day when I have money for multiple setups, I'll have a music room with something like that. For now, these will have to do.

The EMPs are much closer in sound to the RA's than the Chanes are, so they will make good surrounds for me. Not saying they are close, just that their sound heads more in that direction. I will get some R5Bi or R55Wi soon after I move and I figure out what's best for the new room.
you didn't have those very long, if I remember correctly. Did you return them, sell them or keep?
Yes, this damn hobby, if you hear one speaker, well, you want to hear them all!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub

I returned them after giving them about 120 hours of break in. My final placement sounded the best but I was never satisfied with the midrange character.

You're right, once you start auditioning speakers, you want to hear more. And, my understanding of speakers and audio is much greater after spending 6 months on these forums. My original thoughts on the EMPs were really not positive, but after spending more time with them and other speakers, along with putting to use new knowledge about placement, acoustics and room correction, my thoughts changed. During all of that, I was also forming ideas about what I liked in a speaker which is something I didn't really know before. It takes experience to understand why audio geeks do what they do, and I get it now.

You know you're a speaker geek when the first thing you think about when looking at houses is speaker placement.

Be careful, because the merry-go-round can keep turning. I have had around 90 sets of speakers in my home.
