I recently heard the Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home speakers and was blown away by the sound. Has anyone used these speakers in their HT setup? For such a high end speaker there does not seem to be much conversation about using them in a HT setup.

Many of us have auditioned them in our local stores and certainly agree with you. I thought their sound signature was amazing and the quality of the cabinet outstanding. However, they were very expensive and I ended up going a different route. If you can afford them and like them, I'd say go for it.

I have the Grand Pianos, Solo center and Wall surrounds with a REL Storm III. Although they are on the high side for home theater, I chose this group for its musical ability, clean sound and spaciousness and I love them. While I am sure there are many other systems that may be appropriate for strictly HT (certainly cheaper), if you also listen to music , you won't regret the SF choice. Oh, and by the way, our friends are blown away by how they sound in HT mode.

In defense of Sonus Faber pricing, those are some relatively expensive Scan-Speak drivers that Triad also uses. Considering the parts cost and enclosure quality, I consider them a bargain. Just FYI...

To second what racecar said, when I chose the Sonus Faber Grand Piano Homes for my mains, I did so because I was looking for terrific 2-channel music reproduction (in my price range, of course). Subsequently, I was very happy that my Sonus Faber HT (Solo center, Walls, Velodyne HGS-15) sounds just as impressive. However, the Sonus Fabers do need good electronics backing them up to get the most out of them.
