My seat is 6 feet from the rear wall, and I am wondering if this speaker will make it sound as if I have two rear speakers.
I really want to turn my 6.1 into a 7.1, if only to make it far simpler to use in the HTPC world.
timely topic as I am getting rid of my von schweikert floor standers and going to in/on wall speakers (80% home theater) - I know I am giving up some sound quality, but it is time to get the speakers off the family room floor...does anyone on here have direct experience with the Paradigm Millennia's? Seems hard to find review on them
I have heard them on the show room floor before, and was initially not that impressed. Thinking back, the issue was that they were playing classical music through it, and I could not get a great feel for the speaker.
If I went on-wall again, I think that the Paradigm Millennia's may be the best option as it did have a full sound and could perform to atleast 80hz. I would strongly consider it. Try and listen to it if you can.
Anyone with recent on-wall speaker setups that would like to share?
I've look at the following so far
Klipsch Galley G28
Monitor Audio Shadow 60
Paradigm Cinema 330
I prefer to find something I could order online if possible.
Well, if you already have a center and in-wall surrounds, hopefully the same brand. So therefore you need on-walls that at least match the center to provide a coherent soundstage.
They really don't go very deep, and I use 2 home made subwoofers which really fill in the in the bottom end!! So overall, I am very happy with what I have right now, and I have another system waiting to replace it, but it will continue to wait until the time is right.
You absolutely need a sub for movies (and music) in my opinion.
I find I have to raise the center channel audio trim on the receiver quite a bit.
I did, however, only pay $100 ea for them.
