Actually, I think Craig was one of those guys I spoke to about the height channels, some time before I got my CB-IIIHD that said to me, " what do you want that for?"
I really had not thought about them since, untill you reminded me about them last night.
Since my CB-IIIHD, I've got a great soundstage that already reaches to the ceiling when it's called for and I even have a side wall soundstage, which everyone finds a pretty amazing thing.
When it rains in the background of a film, my wife makes me check outside to see if it's raining. The system, as it stands right now is that convincing!
And g-d forbid a cell phone rings in a film that has the same ringtones that we have, we wind-up having to look around for our phones.
Height channels will really buy me very little, for sure.
Nice gimmick for a small system though, it's just not a must have feature for most of us.
I can't see it doing more then I can already do without the gimmick, and the added expense of that gimmick!
I'd be very surprised Ken, if you were looking for some gimmicky sound effect after you set-up your CB-IIIHD.
It's gonna be just great the way it is, have fun with it tomorrow
