Haven't spent a lot
of time with it, but it is a solid performer. Added more polyfill and that took the "thin" away. Panning scenes flow naturally, the Fusion-8 center has a very similar sound to that of the HTMs to my ears. Plenty of output on AVR power.
My only issue with it is the horizontal dispersion compared to the HTMs. Not really a fair comparison I know, with the large SEOS waveguide on the HTM vs. the smaller EOS. We have a 4 - 5 position seating area in this room, all in line, so the listeners in the outside positions lose out a bit on the detail. Due to this I am currently planning out a new build for the component cabinets, with an HTM-8 vertical center in between.
