As for the new, redesigned Impressions, I know they are still working on them, but they won't be available this year... :-(
are you running .2 or .4 for Atmos and what AVR will you be using? i was thinking of using the RSL 34'S i think thats the model # but was also looking into the RBH line as they stated all their ceiling speakers will do Atmos. Appreciate it!

I am using the VA615s and very good timbre match, by themselves they sound very airy.

looks like i would have to find a dealer for these but do you mind giving me a ball park figure on what a pair of VA615's run? also, how do you like the Marantz 7702? i see you're running 7.4...is that without an external amp? Appreciate it!

I'm using a Marantz SR7009 at the moment, and will be installing a 5.2.4 setup initially... I'll wire for the 7.2.4, but the Marantz will only power 9 channels, so will power up the other 2 at some point... I didn't get the install done last weekend (nor this weekend), so can't report back yet on the finished project....

Nice! the 5.2.4 is that without running an external amp? still deciding on a 5.2.4 or 7.2.4? both can be run on the SR7009?

The Marantz 7009 will control 11 channels (ie 7.x.4), but can only power 9 channels (ie 5.x.4 or 7.x.2)... You'll have to add an amp for the other 2 channels (which for me, will be the rear surrounds)...

i'm wondering since you're using an external amp would be better to amp the L/R speaker since those are your mains and about how much watts/power would you normally start looking into?


i was thinking of powering the Emps with the AVR-X6300H that way i don't need to run an external amp which will allow me to run a 7.2.4 setup.

While I haven't confirmed this 100% yet, I believe that you can't power the front mains externally with the Marantz 7009.... Seems like I've seen some previous discussions about that same thing...
