I'd give it a shot! No substitute for experience as they say and that way you will know what you prefer.

I would try with both and see what you think. I prefer the way things sound selecting FC and RC over FH and RH personally.

Easily enough power :)

I hear ya on the visuals but if you can bring yourself to give an SVS sub a try using their free in-home trial I doubt you'd want to send it back.

It is quite possible that the 3200s supplied Audyssey mic has something to do with your findings. I have 3 of the same Audyssey mics (one that came with an X4000, one from a 4100 and one from a 4200)...

Something else worth trying is adjusting your audyssey mic grouping. Try moving the last 2 points from behind you to around midway between point 1 and 4.. if you follow traditional grouping.

My $14.95 copy from Amazon has Atmos on the box (same cover Ralph shows in his review) and my AVR displayed Atmos during playback. I preordered and it was $15 then as well.

I'd start with a great sub (or a pair if you can swing it..you'll love it). See how that changes your movie experience then go from there. You'll probably spend 6 months to a year picking your jaw up...

I've not heard the Heresy III but based on past experience with other Klipsch speakers you will be dealing with very different sound between the 3 speakers.

Hopefully you'll get some feedback...
