@ Hicks: Thanks for the advice & quick reply back in September.
I just pulled the trigger on the Verus Forte Tower Surround HD package before the Oct. promotion ended
Now I just have to pick up the receiver, which after further education and research says the 3312 is worth the price bump. But, if anyone has anything to suggest over the weekend with regards to a different receiver before I order it, please do so.
t will be nice to watch a movie in 5.1 surround without headphones...been using Triton AXpros for sound for too long a time now...
Best of luck to you all, and thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread which helped me come to this decision.
PS. That light band would drive me nuts, if there is any it'll get a matte vinyl patch till the new house where we'll have a dedicated room with enough space for them to be further. Thanks for the picture, I was doing some trading with a guy who does vinyl and the pic let me know to include that in the trade should it really be required once it's tested. I'm a bit of an electrical tape ninja when it comes to LEDs, and curtains when it comes to reflections, or light passing windows...I know some people could car less, I've seen theaters with shiny brass candle sticks and decorative mirrors around, and they loved it, personally it would drive me batty.
