It'll be for short term. At most a year, but probably around 6 months. It's a hell of a deal. Plus I'll get the idea of how the horizon differs from the Sierra 2 center that I had sent back.

I run NRT towers with RAAL Horizon center, the setup works well for me! I like the extra sparkle of the dome tweeters for my music and the clarity of the RAAL for dialogue in movies is superb. I haven't found the domes/RAAL combo for movies distracting - they are well matched (timbre) when it comes to sound effects and the like. I don't watch concert DVDs so that might be an area that timbre (mis)matching would be apparent.

received my Sierra RAAL L/R and Horizon center last monday.
i've been playing it close to 24x7.
first impression was, "WOW this horizon is really big and heavy!!!" SOLID build.
i've heard sounds that i hadnt heard before (Bic Venturi).
the DETAILS of the sound, OMG best speaker i've heard, not that i've heard alot (magnolia speakers at best buy)
VOCALS are very accurate to my untrained ears.
symbals, drums and other instruments can easily be distinguished from each other.
my wife loves listening to Adele vocals.
Vocals are very full (lack of word to describe it) and clear.

only watched 1 movie so far, black hawk down.
the choppers propeller was really astonishing (lack of word to describe it) you can hear/feel the metal.
when the wind blows and carried sand, i can hear the sand flying, i think i heard each sands motion.
****ING IRENE!!!
low end is really punchy, solid and full- i have dual outlaw ultra x12 and crossed over at 80.
even on music, low end is very full/solid.

my budget was $2000 for L/R and center, i went overboard but i have no regrets.
with my venturi, i turn it off after awhile of listening to music, but this i just want to keep listening.

What are you using to power the speakers?
