I had a chance to pick up the CRS's at a stupid low cost but the massive amount of work, increased screen size, and many other changes (forgetting about the price of the speakers) was just way too daunting - and expensive.
BUT ...... as many home theaters as I have heard in other homes and at CEDIA, I have only heard one that I liked more than mine with Plats, Silver Monitors, etc. It was an all Wisdom Audio System. And the MSRP of the LCRs was $45,000 ($15,000 each) , and another $60,000 for the 6 surrounds, and another $20,000 for the ceiling speakers. Then, to that, you get to add a whole flock more of amp channels and a processor to make it all work. And then the price of 4 gigantic subs!!
Summary: For less than the price of a starter home, the Triad Platinums and attendant other Triad speakers are a very difficult combination to beat when put into a properly designed room.
