I bought eight B&W 685s to put in my condo. I did not purchase a HTM61 or 62 because of the bad reviews and plan hook up five of the 685s to my living room TV (with a Denon AVR1713 amp and Boston ASW250 subwoofer).
Two of the 685s are going into my bedroom, facing the bed, primarily for music and to be attached to a TV if I put one there.
The last 685 is going into my study alone for music.
Is it a good idea to break up a pair of 685s like this so you can use one as the center speaker of a TV 5.1 setup? Any problem with using a single 685 in a room for music?
By the way, I'm getting white 685s and figuring out how to mount them on metal brackets from the ceiling frames (the ceilings are low so the sound won't be weird). I live in Manila and the 685s are one of the few good speakers for smaller rooms I can find cheaper here.
Hope to hear your thoughts!
