I am unfortunately giving up my floor standing speakers and moving my tv viewing to a more cozy room. I used to have a dedicated TV room, but think Ill spend more time in the family room in my new house. Giving up my Mirage FRX series setup to probably go with B&W bookshelves. Was using a Pioneer Elite from years ago, considering stepping up to seperate amp/processor. Anyway.....I am really not sure what to do about my center channel location. Doesnt seem like I have much room below the TV. Going to do a 50" plasma above fireplace. Am I going to hate that idea....I know its not optimal ear level, but will I still get good performance if I have it facing me at the couch? Currently My fireplace looks like this the top pic, but will eventually look like the below picture. I have taken off the mantel, and lowered the bring about 4 sections so the TV will sit a tad lower now. Any ideas of thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
