I have a very similar setup. I went with a pair of direct radiating Atoms. Hindsight says that they should have been Minis.

Definitely, the Minis and they should be placed closer together than your ADP-370's from what I understand.

I have mini's in my bedroom now, was thinking about using them for another system in there. Maybe I could just buy a whole new set-up and see if my wife leaves me!!!

Craig I used to have a wife BUT she seemed to always get in the way of things--if ya know what I mean......LOL!!!! Thank God himself I no longer have to worry about that. However, there is nothing wrong with being married it is just not for me. Enjoying the single life here.
