Double check your natural line of sight from you normal seated position before lowering your tv.

Too many people offering advice in these forums about tv height without taking in to account individual circumstances.

I notice from your pics that you have what looks like recliner chair seating. If so, before resorting to lowering the tv, sit in your recliner chair, recline to you normal viewing angle, with your head resting againt the back of the seat (NOT with you head pulled forward away from the back of the seat - that is where neck strain can come in!!). Do you have to tilt you head up to look at the tv? If not, the tv is not too high.

My tv is sitting high on a very high cabinet, and in my natural fully reclined position, I actually have to move my eyeballs DOWN to look at the TV. Havc sometimes resorted to putting a cushion behind my neck/head to bring my direct line of site DOWN (not up) to look directly at TV. Or not push the recliner all the way back, which would result in my direct line of sight aimed ABOVE the TV at the ceiling!!!!

On the other hand, if that two-seater is NOT a recliner, maybe the tv is too high! But even so, do the "sit" test: sit in you viewing chair. Rest your head back against the back of the chair (or not, depending on how you normally sit when watching your tv). Once settled, where are your eyes naturally aligned: below, at, or above the TV? That will tell you where your tv needs to be. NOT some fixed rule that assumes everybody is sitting with back and neck straight, and line of sight parallel to the floor.

Hopefully I will add the Pioneer Atmos speakers to my front towers soon.
I have the same Pioneer centre channel and am thinking of getting their towers like you have. You must like the sound so far, since you are adding their Atmos speakers?

I like the centre channel so far but need to do a lot more test viewing/listening and room changes.

My home theatre: 17x13' living room, 22" monitor (temporary until big TV selected). Denon receiver AVR-S720W. Video sources: Telus IPTV box, Apple TV 3, Sony Blu Ray. Speakers: Paradigm Phantom (fronts), Pioneer SP-C22 (centre), Paradigm Titan (rears), Klipsch SW-110B 10" subwoofer.

The towers are very impressive, very happy with them so far. The whole package flows really well together. After I add the Atmos modules, I may upgrade my subs in the future.

I agree with Shivaji ,that looks fantastic!

You may notice in one of the pictures my center is on top of the AVR, that was the very first day I had the system. I since added a shelf to get it off the AVR, along with stands to raise my front towers a bit. Hopefully I will add the Pioneer Atmos speakers to my front towers soon.

Thanks for the pictures.
They are worth a thousand words


My compliment for putting your main on stand, this way they are closer to your center for tweeter match, since your center is also on a stand.
Well done

I thought I should post my system on here finally instead of just checking everyone else's and commenting occasionally!

Onkyo TX-NR838 Receiver
Klipsch RF -82 82II Reference front
Klipsch R-250C Reference Center
Klipsch RS -52 MKII Reference Surround for Rear
Klipsch R-110SW 10" Subwoofer

I am planning on upgrading my center channel sometime this year and also adding another R -110SW sub and a pair of Klipsch atmos speaker's and that should get me by until we move.

I just added a pair of Polk T15's for rear surrounds to go 7.2 with my set-up. I know the Polk's are not great speakers, but figured they would work well enough as rears.

Very well done to put those two rear surrounds in that space, love the placement


Enjoy those movies with 7.1 recording.
I also have a 7.2 system, but when a movie is 5.1, I leave it at that, so the 7.1 only come active when the recording is done that way, just didn't care for a 5.1 recording matrix into 7.1.
Try both and decide what you like better


Thanks for sharing.

Oh, OK. That makes sense about the base of the speakers. So now I wonder what size the top plate of those stands is underneath that base.

Funny thing about the looks of a speaker. I actually strongly dislike that "in your face" look of the copper-ceramic drivers. Too bold for me, which is fine because I don't care for the sound of them either. Of course putting the grills on changes their "personality", just as my speakers do. To each their own.
I'm also a fan.

My sub is hidden behind a recliner on the right of our entertainment center and will be upgrading the TV this year along with the center channel and hopefully I'll have the money to add another sub and another pair of bookshelves to the back wall.
