    The pics look good but you have those surround speakers mounted too low...they need to be about 3' higher and both aimed towards the TV and downward so that anyone seated on the back wall will be able to realize the surround soundfield. Audyssey will do the rest for you concerning volume level, etc. Really, you should do that or they just won't sound right.

    Just trying to help you get the best surround sound you can in your particular room layout...the positions I recommended will make a dramatic difference. Leaving it the way you have it, whoever sits on either end near one of the speakers will get blasted and it won't sound like surround but rather it will drown out the main channels.

    Thats the next dilemma is changing that up. They are angled towards the set, and they do sound good, just no way to down angle them. This is why i mounted them lower for now. Watched some prince of persia and it was neat with stuff whizzing by your head.

    I like the gloss black finish and the oval shape.

    I'll bet it sounded awesome. Congrats on the new purchases. Isn't it great to finally have 5.1?

    Not too bad.

    What do you think about these articulating mounts?

    I think the top left one is the one that'll do what I need.

    Why not just do box shelves?

    River monsters is great isn't it? That dude is a trip. Great to see him fish at night to test your sammy's black levels.

    The dark scenes do look very very good, same thing with Deadliest Catch.

    Shelves are actually a great idea. I did some looking online at 5.1 surround recommendations, and here is what seems to be the average

    1) Aimed in at the seated position 90/110 degrees, preferably a few feet above the ears. Right now I have two fee above ear level, but they are only toe'd in maybe 35 degrees. The one I'm close to does pretty good, but the other at the end is missing my wife and I really, and only blatant sounds stand out. Plus Audyssey did not measure them well.

    I ordered a 5 pack of these



    And they should allow me to attach to the speakers one hole on the bottom, and toe in 90 degrees no problem. The hole pattern should also line up with what I have going on already.

    Great pics Elway.

    As Elway and I know, the supplied brackets with these speakers only swivel from left to right. Not up and down. What I want to know is, can I find some cheap small brackets that are universal in nature that could connect to the KEF brackets? The KEF bracket is very small and close to the body of the back of speakers - so I suspect if I could do such a thing, it would look quite natural. I talked with someone at monoprice. I didn't get conclusive information. All they could tell me is the holes of their brackets were too wide to match the holes on KEF bracket. Is there not some variable hole mount that I could adjust to fit these holes?

    Know what I mean? Gotta be.

    Hehe, we have laptop power cords every where. Basically the transmitter has a special jack on the end of its cable, that plugs in the back of it. On the other end of the cable are 4 wires labeled right surround positive, etc... And they go into the avr. The transmitter also has to have 110.

    Each rcvr has a red and black speaker connection, where you run speaker wire between it and the speaker, and it also needs 110. I assume it also functions as the amp.

    Transmitter sits at avr, avr sends signal to it, then it wirelessly sends right and left channels to the corresponding rcvr location, then that rcvr powers the speaker. Im shocked how good they work and how easy it was.

    The kef speakers have one hole in the bottom for a screw. These brackets will handle speakera with one or two holes.
