Hmm... I guess I have time to think about it since they just called today and said the 633's won't ship for another week or so. They've already shipped everyhing else.
If anyone else has comments on the 633 vs 533 let me know.
YOU ALL ARE KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No need to stress.
To get my 634-VAC under the tv I had to rip out the shelving so it has room to be angled up a little... it definately is a big boy.
You will see more reviews for the 633-T because the 533-T is still pretty new, but the initial word is they are great for music.
With your distance from seating to speaker, the 633T's are a bit large... but this is going to be a preference thing. Looking back at what you ordered, I just noticed you purchased the 422's for surrounds. If you are 90+% movies, you might want a more balanced sound between the front and back. the 633T's will not match well with 422's in this case. You can either update the surrounds to any 5xx series speaker, OR bring down the fronts to the 533T's (my recommendation for your room size).
I personally would not go with 6 series towers, 5 series center, and 4 series surrounds. With your room constraints, 533T's, 533-VAC, and 532's for surrounds would be be ideal, and I don't think the cost would be much different. Keeping the surrounds 422 would not be a big deal if the fronts are 5xx series. Since the towers have been delayed, and the 533T's are probably on the same slow boat from China, you have a little time to think about it.
One more note... If you are heavy in movies, I would recommend a sub (don't remember reading you have one). The 633'T's can do well on their on with music (that is how I listen), but during movies a sub will make all the difference.
It is not my intention to discourage you... just offering advise.
Don't worry if things have already shipped and you want to make changes, Aperion is very flexible in this regard.
