Rooster19, the VOG channel is ESSENTIAL IMO.

Unfortunately due to WAF the VOG speaker is out of the question.

But fedex came this afternoon. The SP4 looks like it arrived safe and sound. However we're off to spring break saturday so can't give it a run for a while.

Gbaby if the SP3 floats your boat by all means go for it. I have not auditioned the SP4 so can't speak to it's two channel capabilities. If you haven't auditioned one either I suggest you don't have a clue to its capabilities, movies, music, or in between :)

You still don't get it, but since this is an SP4 thread, I'll let it slide.  :wink:

Having a 16 channel processor and only using 7 is like having a Ferrari and never taking it above second gear. You need to open that bad boy up. Get some TOW's or mini A's mounted high on the walls and let us know what you think please. Read that SP4 review again regarding auromatic, I strongly recommend getting an Auro 3D layout. Atmos sounds fine with an Auro setup, no worries.

Stunning, are you getting it more for music, movies or both?

We’re 100% movies/tv.

Great, if you do an Atmos setup you will need 4 speakers in the ceiling (LOL with WAF).
The upfiring speakers are basically a last resort IMO.

What type of speakers are you planning for height channels? Check out this setup guide from Storm Audio's website:

I’ve already got the 7.1.4 in. It’s a Revel/JTR/JBl setup. I’ve been using a Marantz 8805, but wanted to try a datasat/storm/trinnov unit, so here we are!

WOW!! My hat is off to you, what do you have for bed channels? Height channels?
I use a Marantz processor in my media room and JBL speakers in the man cave.

here’s a few pics of my current setup

Sweet, I look forward to your comparison. How do you like the Studio 2 ceiling speakers? I am using the Studio 230's, Studio 225C and 210's in the man cave as bed channels. I want to try the JBL Control Now as height channels but can opt for in ceiling as the basement has ceiling tiles for an easy install.

Have you checked these out? I'll bet Axiom would be a good match for your Bryston speakers:

Hi

Yes we have our own Bryston version of this ceiling speaker but I wanted to compare the SP-4 - 7.1 system because it is what I am use to.

Rooster19, did you get a chance to fire it up yet? How was the installation process?
