Just to clarify, I did not mean to imply that the tests showed they sounded identical. It was more that the tests showed no statistical preference. Also, the full battery of listening tests were not...

Running my F208s as side surrounds (I know, overkill) off the JBL Synthesis SDA8300, which is a digital amp. Works great.

FYI I am just running the F208s as side surrounds since my theater is also...

Quoted for emphasis. This is a Pro piece, designed for mixers in one position at the expense of other positions (at least, that's the best understanding I have right now).

No - they need to be purchased separately. From what I understand they can be quite pricey (perhaps others on this thread can chime in).

Agree with almost all of what Rex Anderson has had to say here. You will get some bounce off the desk, so if you can treat that surface it may not be so bad.

I have the 708s and the F208s both in...

M105s or M106s are ideal for ATMOS or music surround duty. If you are looking for surrounds for more basic 5.1 / 7.1 surround, the S206 bi-pole *may* work better. Since everything is moving toward...

708Ps won't be shipping for another 2 months or so. They should be the same speaker as the 708i, which is ideal for mains or surround use (mains depending on the size of the room).
