Interesting, thanks for the info. I somewhat understand what you are saying with the lamp replacement but it sounds like a PITA.

Thanks -- to be honest I have very little experience viewing PJs, which is why I'm seeking guidance like this. To be clear my comment was about LCD televisions, but I didn't want to rule out a good...

With respect to gold vs silver surrounds, I'm not an expert in Triad speakers but I would think silver would be fine if you need the wiggle room in the budget. The SPL needs won't be as great for the...

In your case -- narrow room and two rows to cover -- I think bipole surrounds are the correct application if you want to keep things simple. I'd mount them to the sides of the second row. And a bit...

I don't think there's a problem discussing relative performance of other brands in this thread. This has always been a good group of guys and not hypersensitive fanboys :)

I would think trying to provide coverage for 2 rows from only 2 surround speakers (5.1 base layer) would be a valid "special case" situation for bipole vs monopole surrounds.

It's not correct. That's just the default. If you choose the 11.1ch amp assign mode you cab customize further.

It's all about the angles. When the lights are off your ears will not know whether those FH speakers are installed on the wall or the ceiling.

I think you will be a happy man :)

The RC's are quite a bit better than your C's. Definitely do all 3 front speakers if you upgrade, not just the center.
