Well guys, My speakers finially came. It was the most exciting day of my life(yeah pretty sad)lol. Just seeing the THX lable on the box was sweet(lol). Anyways most of the boxes were in pretty good shape except for the subwoofer boxes, which looked like they fell off the truck. When I opened them, one of the subwoofers actually looked like it was stabbed with a knife(not good). U would think Atlantic would of packed these better. The main speakers were double boxed.
After getting everything out of the box, I took some pics. I then hooked them up to my system and all I can say is WOW. I really loved the sound, and all I did was run the auto calabration on my reciever. I just wanted to hook up to make sure everything was ok. Anyways my first movie ofcourse was STARWARS ROTS, and watched clips of other movies and I was up all night(lol). I then listened to some music cd's, now I know alot of people say music on THX speakers doesnt sound good, but I thought it sounded GREAT,but then again iam not a hardcore 2ch audiophillie, and I believe that THX speakers are designed mainly for movie sound tracks anyways, and thats what I bought these speakers for. As for the Subwoofers, I really liked these subs, its a very smooth bass sound from these compaired to my old NHT sub. I only had them hooked up for a few days, then hooked my old speakers back up which were the FS3200's. I would of liked to just keep them hooked up, but I figured if I left tem hooked up It would take me longer to finish the theater room in the basement, this way I have to move my ass and get it done(lol).
The only things I would of liked to see on these speakers is
1: THX ULTRA lable on the front of the speakers
2: Higher end speaker connections on the 8200e SR's and 4200e LR
