    I am very curious about these. My receiver does not support them, at least I do not think it does (Yamaha RX-v1000).

    I hear you are supposed to space these further apart and higher up than main front L & R speakers.

    Do they really add that much? I have a 7.1 set up now and I guess adding these would take me to a 9.1 system.

    Please post your reviews using front effects speakers.

    Thanks all...I may just have to upgrade my receiver now.

    No one is using the front effects channel?!?!?!

    Please post because I want to know if it is really worth the $$$$.

    Thank you.

    I have the rxv 3000 and I do use the front effect channels. My experience is that they work better out to the sides towards the front of the room for best results. You have to have a pretty wide room for them to really work well. I've gotta go, I'll post more later if you need it.

    I use them and like them on my 2095. You will not really have a 9.1 system since the effects channels are simply main speaker data set at delay

    I use the 2095 as well, and use some smaller speakers for the front effects, but I wouldn't buy another reciever to get them.
