    Definitive Technology Demand D17...holy cow.

    The Prime Elevations are installed, along with some raceways to contain the wire (I rent so I can't run wires through the walls). (not pictured: pair of D9s as surrounds and Hsu VTF3-Mk5 HP sub, Denon 4500h, Panny 820 UHD player, and an incoming Outlaw 7000X). You also see the new D5c center...

    SVS Prime Elevations arrived. Their gloss white is a pretty close match to the Def Techs. Not exact, if I look at it in natural sunlight, but very close. The main difference is the grilles, which are white for the SVS and silver for the DTs. But since these will be mounted up high where the...

    Another quick update. I know it used to be common wisdom to try and match the make/models of your 5 main channels.

    Still letting the speakers break in (the au natural way of having actual music playing through them vs. burn in noise patterns) but so far I've loved the sound of everything I've thrown at them. From heavy rock like Tool, to electronic-era Radiohead, subtle artists like Norah Jones, to grunge...

    I figure 19 years is long enough between speaker upgrades. In 2003 I posted on this very forum a shootout between some speakers (including my old and revered Energy C-6s) and ended up adding a tower pair of MB Quart QLS-1030s which has served me well in the intervening 19 years. When I did a...
