New NHT's are imminent (a few weeks). Either the new iW2 or iW3 would be perfect. The iW3 is the best match, but both have very wide dispersion, ideal for surround speakers. Both are a big step up from SuperOnes in detail and matching.
The new iC1, 2, 3, 4 would be find, but wall placement is better. If you HAVE to put the couch on the back wall, then, yes, you should go in-ceiling. You should pay no more than $100, $200, $300/pr for the older models on closeout.
Hey James, how's Reno?!? Nice to see a friendly face.
Here's what I have to work with (see current and future layout). I'm having trouble deciding if I should use in-wall (firing from the left / right OR from behind the couch) OR in-ceiling (aimed down, in line with front speakers).
Okay, I'm back. If you are doing 5-channel and can do this, get some new NHT iW2s and put them above the couch to the inside of the windows, at about 5' +/-. If you go to 7-channel in the future, you can to iW2s and put those at the midpoint in the room (if you can get genuine 7-channel processing). At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it....
