It's good for hobbyists to explore the outer limits of audio. It is really the only way to find out what you need.
I hope you are able to enjoy the JBL's for a good long time. :)

For the most part I agree about the center channel and for single a sweet spot a phantom center channel can work. A poorly placed center channel is often the weak link in a HT setup.

IMHO, the coax's dispersion pattern isn't ideal for that application but if you had 6' tall speakers and 7' reflective ceilings ... maybe. Having experienced Atmos in a good 32 speaker Atmos Theater,...

Hi Sen, that sounds like plenty of separation for the T12's and as far as toe in goes, I ran my T12's both ways and didn't notice much difference. With the coaxial compression driver they have a wide...

The limiting factor will be your hearing. :)

I have one of those $1K upgrade coupons from my DMC-1 days. This unit is mildly interesting and might be worth a try while I wait for Atmos to mature.

Yeah, I'm getting concerned that at this rate, they will leave a permanent imprint in the carpet ... :)

I'm thinking of giving the Marantz pre a go but the Integra's have been very reliable.
