Thanks very much for this update; very interesting. Just hope that Mike's estimate of the cost comes down an order of magnitude before too long!

I have a walk-in closet at the back of my 14x17 'poor man's home theater' (a former master bedroom), and the RS600 is at the back of the room, protruding ~ halfway into the closet. So there's...

I am very grateful for the front exhausting (for my RS600) since this allows me to locate the pj right up against the back wall (which I need in order to use a screen as large as I wanted).

I am very grateful for the forward exhaust exit (as in my RS600) since it makes it possible to put the pj as far back as possible (so as to fit my large screen).

The SCS8's certainly look neater, and more compact, than the HTM-200's, but don't seem to be as capable speakers. And if I noted correctly, seem to be ~3x the price.

As a more modest suggestion, I have 8C's for L/C/R and use ascendacoutics HTM-200's as surrounds, rears, and heights. I find these completely adequate in this role.

Sorry, yes meant 2300 ft^3. The area is 17'x15'; it is a former master BR => teenager den => my HT after the girls grew up and left home.

Yes, I have 3 8C's L/C/R, and just 1 SubMersiveHP (and 5 surrounds), but my room is only ~ 2300 ft^2, so I'm quite sure I will never need to upgrade audio.

Absolutely, Rich, for me. I think I will be content with my RS600 for several years, giving plenty of time for the 4K laser technology to perfect itself.
