Thanks a million for all the info so far, I feel like I've hit the jackpot with all the advice you have given so far, I really appricaite it. The other forms are just full of people fighting with each other for no reason other than they've got nothing else to offer.
I will look for a place in San Diego where I can audition the Sonance in-walls. I will read about the subs you mentioned.
Regarding components (pre/pro/amp) what would you recommend I should be running these speakers from? I was looking at the new NAD T175 and also noting what ID company Emotiva has to offer and their good pricing.
Thanks once again....I've got a headache now thinking about all the hard work ahead of me in doing more research. it is fun though.
Tomorrow my Sony 46XBR4 goes up connected to my new Oppo 980H DVD player. Looking forward to that
