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.

How does all this hold up compared to your most recent adventure with the yorkvilles ?

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
