To properly listen to the M7s and C, the first order of business is to play the 5.1 Blu-Ray Grace for Drowning by Steven Wilson as it's the best sounding audio I have. It uses all the speakers to reproduce an immersive experience (I was going to say "sound scape"  :duh:). I might even make them the fronts for a while and listen like that! The mind boggles!  8)

Heh, I'm not sure what to make if this when it's coming from a guy who has an actual bat cave decicated listening room with blue speakers, amps, and a matching chair...

I'm sure someone's done the full tilt SS system before, or am I just that special?  :cyclops: Either way, if you are in the Seattle area, please do swing by and that gtg can be arranged!

I am now firing on all SS cylinders!

Currently listening to the DVD-A of Rumors by Fleetwood Mac. Gotta say that the M7 speakers really just knocked it way out of the park on the delicate acoustic interplay on "Never Going Back Again." Before that I was playing Porcupine Tree DVD-A "Lightbulb Sun" and "Russia on Ice" never sounded so utterly majestic! I am actually working my way up to Steven Wilson's "Grace for Drowning" because it's not the magic evening hour when everything sounds best (that might be the wine though).

Love it! Haha, I have the SS10's and I know what you mean about the Fleetwood Mac track. I love listening to music in my office and then bringing the tunes into my main listening room to hear the SoundScapes do their thing. Magic happens everytime, never gets old.  :D

No kidding. I am writing this as "You Make Loving Fun" is sounding so awesome coming at me from all directions - my eyes are misting over. That's MAGIC!

Congrats on the wonderful system!  One of the few pre-made speakers I would consider if I wasn't such a DIYer.

Good call on the Porcupine Tree and Steve Wilson multichannel stuff.  He is an excellent musician AND engineer.  You might try to find the DVD-A of Toy Matinee.  A little bright sounding(not bad with the Raal), but really excellent music and surround mixing.

Also, Roxy Music Avalon is an excellent multichannel mix.  Very open and clean sounding.

Enjoy.

Regarding center channel setup, what else can you do with a TV like that? Room treatment is a logical next step. Congrats on your SS SSS setup.

Yeah, The TV is next to be upgraded so the center can be placed much lower between the SS12s. Work in progress...

The Mitsubishi 65813 Diamond is the king of all "dinosaur" HD Rear Projector TVs regardless of brand and its picture (delivered by 9" guns) is still incredible. This has made it so hard to justify a suitable replacement (plus it just won't die!).

However, there are a few new contenders that have piqued my interest, so we shall see!
