I can't complain about the movie performance, really. The surround field integrates almost perfectly and the white S50s work great on the side-walls (and look even better; everyone comments on how cool they look when they see them) and certainly the Panasonic PT-AX100U projector's picture is quite exceptional looking, even on the mere $200 Dalite Model B (with controlled return mechanism) matte white finish 93" screen. I can't imagine, though why they make their cases WHITE, though (black would have blended in with the bookshelves behind it much better; maybe they expect a white wall or ceiling mount?)
In any case, it's really just the music performance that gives me some pause. I'm pretty certain the 805s sounded WAY better in the mid-range (I guess they should for $2500 a pair) and given the exceptionally flat frequency repsonse I'm getting out of these PSB B15s, I can only assume it's some other parameter that's making the difference. I just can't help but wonder if I should have gone with the NHT Classic 3's instead (that's their top passive monitor, not their mid-range one) as they didn't really cost a whole lot more.
Oh well. I'm probably splitting hairs because I still have the Carver planar dedicated music only system upstairs to listen to CDs on and I think its midrange is superior to the 805s even. I'm planning on ordering a Sony 400 disc DVD/CD/SACD changer next (995 something model) and if I can get a long enough RCA cable, I'm going to run a set up through the corner/ceiling of the room to the upstairs system and a digital connection to the downstairs one and then I'll be able to listen to my CD collection on both systems at a push of a few buttons plus have SACD capability downstairs on the surround system and still probably be able to fit a sizable portion of my DVD collection in their as well for downstairs (I'd leave out CDs I never listen to and movies I hardly ever watch; 400 should be plenty for now). Then all I'll need is an OTA HDTV tuner to get Cleveland stations (since local cable only carries Pittsburgh HD stations) and eventually a Blu-ray or HD-DVD player (if/when it becomes clear which one I should buy as even a combo player doesn't solve the dual-software buying problem; although Warner's idea for a double-sided disc with one on each side might solve that; the trouble is getting the other studios to follow or pick ONE format).
Actually it'd be really easy to change out the speaker system except for the side surround speakers as the rest are all on stands. The side surrounds were and are the worst problem in that room since they have to go on the side walls with a limited amount of room and on the upper 1/3 of the wall due to seating proxmity.
I've actually been quite pleased with the 6-channel surround mode options on the Yamaha receiver as the one recliner sits BEHIND the side surround speakers and with the rear center engaged, surround comes from all over the place in that seat, which with side surrounds only would have been slightly odd with surround sounds coming in front of me there instead of the more typical side or rear locations. Actually, all 4 seats have a pretty good show and I could add a 2nd row in the back of the room if I really needed it, maybe on a slightly stepped up floor (stadium style), which I saw in one of the showrooms I visited before (can't go too high, though or the duct-mounted projector would start getting in the way as it's a good deal lower than the regular ceiling).
