( shameless plug -upgraded to 8080, 8060 is listed in classified with towers and a Marantz 7009... all priced to sell)
The 2000 worked ok with the 65's (calibrated up a couple decibels)... the 8060 had a fuller sound with the powered subwoofer and the 8080 is pure heaven.
Can you pull your wall unit out and hold off to buy a 8060?
Well that's good info. I'd love to get and 8060 or 8080, but I'd end up having to place it on top of my entertainment and that would just look funny, not to mention I'd have to remount my 65" TV up higher on the wall so that the center channel wasn't covering the bottom portion of the TV. That seems like a big headache to accommodate one speaker. Perhaps in the future I can find a matching entertainment center with a wider insert for the CC.
