I purchased my first 5.1 (4.1?) setup back in 1995 as a 20 year old.
I didn't really know what I was doing, but was sold Jamo Prestige 90's, Centre 110, and some crappy on-ceiling rears, with my ProLogic AVR.
its about time I upgraded, and I love the sound of the Jamo's (even after 13 years) so I'm considering going for the C80's (C805, C80 CEN, C80 SUR).
My question is: I have found some discussion that dipoles for surrounds are terrible, and shouldn't be used for ANY 5.1 / 6.1 or 7.1 setup.
Is this actually the case? For those of you that have dipoles, would mounting them on walls just behind the listening position, 2m away, work?
I have a very small house, but would think that a purchase of some high-end speakers will last me a VERY long time. (hopefully longer than 13 years!).
heres a comment in point:
Dipoles however have no place in 5.1 systems, they were common in the old prologic only days, where they added a sense of dispersion to the rear effects channel. They in my view (others are welcome to disagree) have no place in a 5/6/7.1 system.
Please, your thoughts?
