    Check out my updated pics of my HT with the new miniscule Take 5.2 System and the 8.2 subwoofer (my first sub!).
    While modest in comparison to some of your setups, the soundstage is seamless. All the speakers are wall mounted 4' off the ground with the exception of the center which is on the TV.
    I was afraid of the soundstage being off as the mains are 1' behind the center but with a little tweaking of the delay time on the 2801 ... it's seamless.
    Link is in signature ... Any tips appreciated.

    Aren't paradigm monitors a notch above the energy system?

    Guys,
    Actually the Energy's are giving me a more seamless soundstage than the Paradigms did.
    Also a big factor was space. My room as you can see from the pictures is not that big ... and I wanted something smaller.
    Overall I am happy with the switch ...

    Arent your mains a little too high?
    Of course i cant really tell cuz i dont know what it looks like from the seating position, but are your mains at ear level?
    You should get a better sound if you place them at ear level, then you could just angle the center down towards you as well.

    Henry:
    All the speakers are 4' off the ground.
    It doesn't look it from the picture, but the mains are level with the center.
    Basically all the wall mounted speakers are tiltable in all directions ... also I am 6'6" so seating position for me is pretty high [​IMG]
    I would love to get a 16:9 Widescreen table top set next (Loewe or Samsung) ...
