$1499 for the KEF T205's same place.

Huh. Interesting. Are those planar magnetic drivers or just standard voice coils?

 

In either case. I've got my speakers! I unboxed the hell out of them and placed them in the room.

 

Except I haven't wired them up. I'm going to build temporary speaker stands over the weekend and then turn everything on and see what happens...

 

Subwoofer is still on backorder, looks like it should ship Jan 31st or so and then however long ground shipping from LA/Seattle is...

The sub arrived last week after a bunch of delays (a UPS truck broke somewhere) and the hilarity of trying to fit that giant box in my car (I had to unpack it in the parking lot)... I've got everything together, and boy is this a lot of fun.

 

I promise to put up a more complete/concise review in the near future, with some pictures of how hilariously bachelor my place is...

 

That being said, if anyone has any setup tricks for a Denon 2311ci receiver I'd be glad to know them. I seem to spend more time getting my PS3 or cable box to handshake Dolby with the receiver than anything.

As non-manly as this sounds the best advice I can give is read the receiver manual cover to cover! AVR's are no where near as intuitive as the average smart phone and the manual goes at great lengths to explain the ins and outs. Its very helpful for getting the best sound

You have a smart phone that is intuitive? I have a semi smart phone that is certainly not.
