    There's an article in the new S&V named "Poles Apart".

    Basically it compares dipole and monopole surround speakers using movies and music. While the writer didn't find one type superior to the other for all sources. He did prefer certain types with certain sources. He concluded that movies tend to sound better over dipoles, some music sounds better with dipoles and some music sounds better with monopole. He goes on to say "Ideally, you'd have a set of monopoles and a set of dipoles, each positioned optimally, and a receiver that lets you switch betweem them".

    Denon receivers are the only ones I know of with this capability. I wonder if others will follow?

    Robert,

    I agree that the M&K's are very flexible. I also use the SS150's as my side surrounds. How will you use yours for the back surrounds, tripole, dipole or ?

    Will you stick with Denon when you move to 6.1,7.1?

    Robert, you know you have to go with monoblocks all around!! How cool would that be to have *7* monoblock amps!!!
    Hmm, now if only the M&K's were bi-ampable... [​IMG]
