I'm considering switching gears after my idea (to build a center speaker shelf into the wall so that the center speaker doesn't stick out past the wall) may be a bad one. I really want a clean appearance, and don't want a bulky center speaker visibly sticking out well past the tv.
So now I'm going over reviews of Definitive Tech Mythos 10, and using it for the front 3 speakers, and maybe the SR8080BP as surrounds. It looks like this set of 5 speakers would be around $2400 - and I would then add a nice sub.
I realize there have to be trade offs with a wall mounted system rather than towers - but I'm mainly using this for movie/tv watching, and really no hardcore audiophile music. If I went with towers, they would be pretty close to the walls - which I realize isn't ideal, but the married among us will understand. So maybe wall mounted are as good as "too-close-to-the-wall" towers?
For movie watching - and at a similar price - are there big tradeoffs between the Mythos and the PSB, KEF, etc at a similar pricepoint?
If I do go the wall mount route, what about KEF T305 series vs the Mythos?
