Thanx for the feedback Kirby. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with the sound! It's amazing! For the first time, I have speakers that are a sonic match all around, and transitions from front to back and from side to side are seamless. The bass was the biggest surprise. In my old set-up (my living room), the base was great, but now its sound is much tighter with so much more punch without the boominess and rattles I would hear in the last location. I had never before experienced that feel-it-in-your-chest type of bass, but now I know what people mean by that. Aditionally, I'm now using a power amp with significantly more power than before, so everything is much cleaner. My installer has me scheduled for an Audyssey EQ Pro calibration, which he says will improve the sound even more. Frankly, I don't see what more can be done to improve the sound, but I trust him so we'll see. Again thanx for the feedback.
