Hi MKtheater.

I am in the process of soon acquiring a new HT setup.
I'd be spending roughly 2500usd on the speakers, 5 of them.
And I've been looking at the DR's for some time now.
Would the DR200/250 be usable in a room thats 13x13?
And I think about getting wedges as surrounds.

Where do the U215's belong? You won't believe me if I told you.

They belong either 1 or 2 depending on the listener, 3 out of 4 people liked the DR's for music and HT was not tried without a third U215. Based on what I liked about each I would assume that I prefer the DR's for HT but the U215's would score either 2 or 3. A shootout between the U215's and JBL cinema would be interesting for HT. I would like to get some 4722N's here with the Nano AVR EQing them and see how they do, They will either be 1 or 3! The highs and vocals are very close on the DR's and U215's so it will depend if the vocals on the JBL's are as good. From what I remember the JBL's may win the mid bass and sound stage criteria so who knows.

Sorry for the long delay!
They are positioned roughly 3ft above ear level on each side of the couch (a 3 seater).
Yea the room is 13x13x9ft, where there is a door taking up roughly 3,2ft on the left side where the front is.

I am using a TableTuba as sub with a FBQ2496

It's been a year. I think you should update the first post.

I am getting the itch again. I started reading about all my DR experiences from the past and some of the reasons I like Berries better are due to a zero hiss, and no EQ necessary. They sound smooth and clear. Now I remember the DRs sound ultra clear but with an edge but their dynamics and size of sound were incredible. I eq'd them with the Nanoavr and made atmos impossible which brings me to another point, I like all matching sound with atmos. So I am putting two DR-250s back in and going to compare them directly with the Behringer 215xl and this time I will EQ them within the Inuke amps I have and still be able to use atmos. If they win I will change over to all BFM once again and DSP will be simple with the Inukes(I am using them now anyways). I am heading over to the BFM website to get the EQ dsp settings to make these flat at 1 meter and let me room do its thing which I did not do with them prior. BTW, I am also rebuilding my rear subs and finally did but two RE XXX drivers and building two ported monsters. The front wall will contain 12 SI HTs ported to 10hz. LTD02 came up with a port design for all and will post pics.

Well, they happen to be the same ones I had before so nothing but hooking them up again. I used the Nanoavr last time and while it worked good it gave me no options and raised the noise floor.

i would use the taichi method for eq. its given me the best results so far

64 base level speakers $10k
28 height speakers $10k,
14 subwoofers $10k
90% of the movie sound coming from the center channel - priceless.
