His center triple 8LP is in his cabinet. I am trying to convince him of 4 more 888's for his surrounds for a balanced system. Great job and enjoy!
Thanks MK! Yeah, the eD's are great, you steered me right.
I bet your buddy's setup sounds awesome, I would have gone JTR if I had the funds but I really don't know if I'm missing anything.
I fired up the Maggies one last time for the guy who bought them and they do have the edge with music, but it's slight in my opinion and you have to be sitting and in the sweet spot or close to it.
The eD's sound great all over the room for music and of course they wipe the floor with the Maggies for HT. I will miss the Maggies, but I have no regrets. These eD's absolutely stomp the Axiom setup I used to have. Those speakers hurt my ears even when the music was around 80db, so harsh.
Check out the last couple of pages of the Captivator thread, quite a bit of talk about the eD's I bought.
