    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Hmmm... I just asked about ceiling (surface) mounting the ELAC A4.2s in the other ELAC thread, but maybe I should be considering the OW4.2s instead. Apparently same $200/pair sale price going on right now... _Man_

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    Before streaming on phablets and tablets (and everyone having own PC/laptop) became part of our reality, everyone had to enjoy whatever content on the same shared TV-based setup in our livingroom. And if I had moved the HT into some other dedicated room, that becomes where we all go too. But...

    No idea about many other parts of the country, but plenty buyers here in NYC metro area (and some others I've heard of) would probably have little problem w/ needing some basic reno work. Plenty (like my new neighbors) even do gut renos it seems... in part to save on the home purchase cost and...

    5.1.5 or am I just dreaming

    I imagine it might make some diff if the ceiling is unusually high or low -- maybe more so the latter. Even regular 8ft ceilings might not be so good for hanging bookshelf-style speakers that end up w/ drivers only 6.5-7ft high, if that's what one tries. I'm thinking maybe going w/ something...
