    for rears. Very happy with my new M22s that are now my mains, but am considering if I should go with the M3s, M22s, or Qs4s.

    Will probably get the 100, maybe the 150 for the center as well.

    Which did you choose and what set-up do you have?

    Thanks!

    I have the QS4s and have been very happy with them. It is all in you own preference. Do you like direct radiating speakers or quad radiating speakers.

    Wish I could answer that. While I have direct radiating in my current set up, my buddy does have quad(I think) radiating Cambridge surrounds on his system, and they sound great.

    Where do you mount you QS4s on the side wall or behind you?

    I have the M3's up front, VP100 center, QS4 surrounds, and EP175 sub and love the setup. The QS4's are on the Axiom QSS4 stands, and are positioned on either side of my listening position at the stands' max height of 48". This works great for my situation.

    Thanks!

    2 more qs.

    1.) What are you using as a power source?
    2.) Why did you go quad instead of direct? More HT vs Music?

    I have M22 all around with a VP150 center. I would have chosen QS4 or QS8 for the rear, but I had positioning problems (the M22 fit perfectly between the bookshelves on either side of the listening position.

    All driven by an Onkyo 797.

    I have a VP150 center and QS8s on the sides. I'm waiting to save up for the M60ti for the fronts.

    All speakers driven with a Denon 3802.

    I've got the M50s up front, a VP150 and M3s for surrounds. Once I get into a new place and get a dedicated HT room, I'll move the M3s to the rear center position and get a pair of QS8s for the side surrounds.
    As far as amplification, the M50s are being driven by an Odyssey Stratos stereo amp (150Wx2) and the rest of the speakers are being driven by three Marantz MA500 monoblocks. The processing is being handled by a Denon 3802.

    Thanks guys!!!

    Definately going with the 150 (will fit ontop of the 56" w/out a prob)

    Still deciding on the rears but leaning heavily towards the QS4s, they will mount perfectly on the sidewalls of my apt and right above my listening area!

    Robertto,
    I'm running my setup (Epic Master) with the Onkyo 600. I went with the QS4's because they were part of a pre-configured Axiom package in my price range. Good luck, and enjoy your system!
