I don't know what model you have, but most likely no. You can adjust the level of any speaker after Audyssey runs. I can do it on my Denon from 2 different menus.

Dump the JBL on craigslist and buy the most expensive one you can afford from Rythmic, PSA, SVS or HSU. Any of them will smoke the 8000.

55s would be way better than 800s, but the 45s are all you need and have the same size driver as the 65s.

Very nice room, similar in size to mine. I looked at your future upgrades and recommend acoustical treatments before anymore speaker upgrades. It made a huge improvement in my room.

Waiting until March is my whole problem. My wife and daughter are headed out for spring break and I thought I would slip an upgrade in while they were gone. :D

I am still on the fence for Atmos. If I did go forward it was going to be with a 5200, but now with the DTS:X announcement I was wondering if the 7200 would be better. Any rumors of the 7200...

It was hard before to picture why you had a 4" restriction on the CC height and now since you are ceiling mounting your L/R it's even harder. Can you explain the front sound stage a little better? ...

How far apart will the left and right speakers be and how far back will you sit? If I were you I wouldn't run any center because there is no good compromise less the 4", just go phantom CC mode.

I need a little more detail. Do you have room for towers, will it be book shelves, will it be satellites all the way around? Do you have any space constraints for the CC or any of the speakers? ...

Interesting, so you are not even running Atmos yet? Do you plan on a 5.2.4? What is your room size, dimensions, do you have 2 rows or a riser?


Thanks,

Did the Gem XLs really give you more than the 800s, or was it their unique bipolar sound? They are both potential options for an Atmos or DTS:X upgrade mounted to the ceiling.
