My apologies for drawing this out. I'd say more, but the crow feathers tickle a bit as they go down my throat.

Curious, why all the drivers in front, instead of the two bass drivers on the sides (or front/back) in a dual opposed configuration to cut down on vibrations? Looks?

Also, your setup probably...

I suspect that assertion no longer true. Audio parts dealers are failing everywhere (or converting into CI shops) because intelligent people actively shun them. We don't want to go in to potentially...

Then again, they're up against 1-3 walls so you get lots of boundary reinforcement. Note that the commercial "Atmos modules" tend to be small concentrics or just 3-4" widebanders. And they're out in...

They don't sell a replacement cord because it's a universal 3-prong IEC power cord. I'd get a 14AWG one (15A rated) for a big amp like that. You can find such cords in a most electronics and...

That's what they all say, of course.

Put a sticker with your brand's name on it on the magnet, and it's "custom." Which is technically true: you probably can't buy it with that sticker on the back...

In a home system with such efficient speakers, low noise from the DAC to the binding posts is far more important than big power. Consider fully balanced gear throughout. On the amp side, ATI makes...

IMO, and IME based on playing with Trinnov, there's a key phrase missing there: over a fairly small listening area.

Sorry for disappointing. Those are older Pioneer speakers with concentric drivers.

Unless the prices are stratospheric don't expect that grade of cabinet on the Atmos ones.
