Exactly. You see a picture of the exact item they are sending, and usually the damage is minor and in an inconspicuous place like the back or bottom. I just ordered another PC-2000 for $665, pretty sure its the same one I returned because of cosmetic damage to the inside of the port a few months ago (laminate was peeling. They insisted I send it back and they replace it with an undamaged one. They asked for a picture, and their response was "a replacement is on the way", not "would you like to exchange it?").

Several of the techs at the system integrator company I work at say that are pretty much a waste of money, but if clients want them, they get them. We see full racks taken down by lightning, surges etc, and 9 times out of 10 the "protector" is toast along with the rest. I understand the conditioner part, maintaining stable current flow to higher end amps, but for protection.....?

I’m sure that folks that have purchase audio equipment from other companies get excellent support. ID companies rely on their reputation in order to get return customers and word-of-mouth endorsements. SVS (as well as PSA) seem genuinely concerned about their customers long after the sale. Ed Mullen was great getting me setup in an unusual configuration that I employ. That guy’s knowledge is vast. Tom was amazing in handling a situation of my own doing (we hear these stories all the time in the PSA thread). Both companies have the best transferrable warranties, generous upgrade policies and return customer discounts. But it is the unknown “little” things that often pop up and are handled quickly without financial gain that places these companies where they are today. I’m fortunate that I was wise (or lucky) enough to choose these companies for my subwoofer needs.

Congratulations, bulldog! I think you’ll be really surprised with the sound quality of that system, especially when one considers its cost. Do go over to the SVS and EMP Tek owner’s thread and let them know what you are getting. They will give you a lot of helpful hints in integrating your system. Any time you have questions, you can PM me (once you have the required amount of posts), and I’ll try to answer or point you in the right direction.

My bad, I ordered:

RBH Sound R5BiB Bookshelf Speakers
SVS PB1000 10-inch 300 Watt Powered Subwoofer
Denon AVR-X2200W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Then the various accessories, speaker stands, wire, etc.

The subwoofer and speaker stands and the accessories have come already. Just waiting for the speakers and receiver!

Ok just waiting on my L R speakers and I am good to go.

Any recommendations for a center speaker and rear speakers? I might as well do it now lol, having a good time.

Something that would fit the budget range of what I have now.

RBH Sound R5BiB Bookshelf Speakers 225$
SVS PB1000 10-inch 300 Watt Powered Subwoofer 499$
Denon AVR-X2200W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 499$

Would 3 more of the R5BiB fit the bill? Two in the back mounted on the wall and 1 in the center position turned sideways? Or are there better alternatives? I am blaming you guys when my wife asks

First, I’d wait until you have those two R5Bi’s setup and running. I mean, what happens when they are hooked up and you find out that they aren’t what you are looking for? No problem, just send those two back before the trial runs out (costing you only about 25 bucks to do so) and look for a speaker that better fits your sound preference.

And if you do like them (and I “think” you will)? Then you’ve already spent the required time getting them located properly and sounding good. You will probably have integrated your subwoofer as well. From that point on, everything is easy. I’d just buy a third R5Bi as your center channel (turning it on its side and angling it toward the ear of the listener). As far as your surrounds? Sure, you can get a couple more R5Bi’s, but surround duties are kind of a waste for such a fine speaker … imo. And since you are talking wall-mounting, remember, these are rear-ported speakers. It could be that another brand of smaller and less expensive, wall-mount speakers may fulfill your needs (EMP Tek has those as well). If you do decide on the R5Bi’s, just make sure they have some breathing room behind the speaker.

Wow, the EMPTeks are a lot slimmer-looking than I expected...even more WAF points!

The PB1000 also looks smaller than I was expecting.

Do you mind if I steal your photo and use it for other newbies asking for WAF-friendly options? I wish EMPTek and SVS would have full-room photos like that so that people can get a better idea of the real-world PROPORTIONS of their products next to TVs and other everyday furniture.

I think that a trick of the camera. If you noticed the PB-1000 looks much narrower than it is as well.

You're right, it does look like a high angle (downward) shot though, which is known to have a slimming effect---lol, back in the day when I was single and trying the online dating scene, got burned quite a few times by women doing exactly that with their profile pics!

Would still come in handy during high-WAF situations, though!

Well I am back! I have really been enjoying my set up you guys helped me out with. Being Black Friday I was keeping my eyes open for something to add. I saw Klipsch rc-62 for sale on Amazon for 329$ from 529$ and wondered if this would be a good fit? edit: I also see R56Ci Center Channel Speaker is on sale @emp tek for 335$

The Klipsch and Emp-tek have very different sounds. You're better off getting an another R5bi or matching center to achieve cohesive sound. The Emp-tek will be cheaper and will be a much better fit.
