From a fellow Michgander - - that is about the only option I see you having - - above the screen. I have seen the "above screen" configuration before but not with a fireplace below. And if it's a working fireplace - - it will be difficult to hide the connecting wires as the chimney/vent makes it difficult to route anything.

You could look at an extended "mount" that allows you to place the CC 690 on the mantle but again, if it's a working fireplace, there are always heat concerns.

It's a beautiful room that is very tastefully decorated.

I have asked for seller to set it up with Blu-Ray and will take a couple movies I know, but it will be through "his" system so the familiarity is low.

I will be wall mounting so I want to make sure it comes with mounts obviously as well. I am comparing them with some Axiom qS8's so will see which ones I like better.

Any tips would be greatly helpful!

Thanks!
I have the ADP 590's in a 7.1 configuration. I use them as "side surrounds" with direct firing Paradigm Millenia speakers in the rear. I find the direct firing speakers as rear surrounds work best. I was space challenged so that's the largest speakers (Millenia) that could fit in my HT room (rear).

I used the Paradigm mounts that came with the ADP 590's. They work very well. Just make sure they are anchored in to a stud or wood trim extending to the dry wall. In my case, most of the speaker weight leans against the wall.

Hope this helps with your setup.
