Got my tracking number as well. Not sure if this was a coinky-dink but I happen to call EMP to see where my shipment status was, then voila I got my magic FEDEX track #. ETA is 18 Dec. Looks like the rate limiting step to fulfilling our orders was reconfiguring the center channel speakers and fixing it (there was an issue with a wrong value component installed...what they said, I'm just the messenger). My order:
E55Wi surround (2pairs)
ES 1010i Sub
Also, it does not say in the product description but included in the E55Wi are wall mount brackets so i had to quickly cancel an amazon order for speaker wall mounts. Just FYI for those who are considering buying brackets so this should save you some money. Brian advised us to use sturdy dry wall hardware to mount the surrounds.
Anyone else doing 7.1 with all E55Wi surrounds? Not sure if this was overkill and maybe could have gone with a pair of E55Wi on sides and pair of E5Bs for rear but I couldn't pass up the incredible BF deal on these surround speakers so I went all 4.
Post pics. Always like seeing more. Really wish someone in WA has these. So I could hear them for myself.
Will do. I'll have pics and initial review after a day or so. Then I'll review them again a few weeks after that. Might just get an RTA to really dial them in since my 663's YPAO isn't the best I hear. Solid amp section though!

Oh oh...I did!! I did!! Found a few very nice stands that fit the large center channel too! Can't wait to get it, my speakers and a 65"+ on it. My 50a550 has served me well, but it's time to get bedroom duty
What is everyone planning on using for brackets for the bookshelves?
Yep, I am moving in a few months and will probably move from 2.1 to 5.1 next year.
The speakers come double boxed, with reinforced corners, molded soft foam, and double bagged. They are absolutely beautiful!!! The pictures do not do these speakers justice. I am in the process of adding the feet to the second tower and then will get them positioned and try them out! I will post some pictures in a little while, along with my initial review, stay tuned.
I should also note these things make my 42" plasma look small...
Good to hear!! Post up more impressions soon
Can't wait to get all 5.0 of mine Tuesday lol
Played the train crash scene from Super 8, I was able to hear a lot more detail, and it sounded fantastic.

I started with stairway to heaven, I swear Robert plant was standing in front of me! I like marooned and the great gig in the sky to test speakers, and classical gas by mason Williams is great for acoustic guitar.
