First off, thanks to all those on the forum. I began lurking about a year ago in anticipation of my new home theater. The companies and education that I was exposed to on the forum are things that I would not have without the members of AVS.
Now, I had the pleaseure today, to speak for about a hour or so with Craig. What his company is doing for guyslike me(those with champagne taste and beer pockets) is incredible. I have considered everything form Catalysts, to Triple12, to JBL Pro cinema speakers and everyhing in between. I haven't ben able to audition anything in these lines before purchasing. what I have had, is the opportunity to hear everything from Klipsch, Paradigm, B&W, etc.etc. and none of the products I heard did exactly what I wanted, and they all cost much more than a few sho10s. I almost ordered some JBL(thanks to MKTheater), almost JTR(thanks to RMK) and almost spent more than I have on Catalyst(fugueness' fault). In the end, I realized that my budget really should have been smaller from the start and I couldn't bring myself to put out $20k on equipment alone.
Now, $4k on 7-sho10s and an 18.2(to start anyway) is something I can handle. I have not heard any of them yet, but my better judgement tells me that this system will come as close to what I want, and for a reasonable price as anything. I guess I rambled on a bit, but it means a great deal to me to be able to put togther a room like this(affordably) and myself, my wife and most importantly my kids will enjoy for years to come. I am looking forward to the arrival of the new sho10s at Cahse and being one of the first to have them. Once I do, I will post pics and my impressions. For now, I will just say that Craig is a pleasure to deal with, and I am sure the product will be too!
