I have vertical monitor versions of my Focal Electra towers for the centers to keep the sound as uniform as possible. I'll post some photos tomorrow of the unboxing porn and subsequent placement of the phils.

I think with the Bryston powering them and the Benchmark dac1 decoding they should sound pretty euphoric.

I know we all love our Philharmonics but what exactly are you unboxing in that quote "I'll post some photos of the unboxing po*n..." No photos please he he he

You will love the Depeche Mode as that is one band I have listened to a lot with my 3s.

And I have depeche and chicane lined up first. With the SVS subs working with the phils the results should be pretty amazing.

Thanks for the update. I was wondering how long I would have to follow that truck to intercept your terrific new speakers

Just kidding of course - enjoy! Nice for you to get them in advance of a weekend.

And both of you guys are going to read the destructions, right? You're going to put the blue wires in the front terminal posts, right? And you'll put the positive plugs into the positive terminals? Don't want to lose any tweeters or get you all out of phase.

My comment about the 30th to d_m1010 was concerning this date is an import one to me personally and a great day for him since he is getting a pair of your speakers

The satin finish is totally the way to go in a ht room. The finish is flat and blends nicely.
