Congratulations. It's a beautiful system but I think the rear surrounds may be a little too close to the listeners' ears. Just a suggestion.

That was my concern at first when I mounted them on the wall, but then I realized that they have a 30 Degree disperson angle (the sound covers the whole area, most of the speakers from ML have this feature). I calibrated them with a Radioshack SPL meter and tested them for sound clarity in different spots and they sounded great.

Nice contemporary room! I really like the coffee table.
Also, I know 7.1 would be hard to do with your room and set-up, but have you considered 6.1?
Another center for the rear would really help envelope you in back sound. I have always noticed the gap in rear sound with 5.1 set-ups.

The problem is with passing the cable through the wall to where the receiver is. It was a hard work to pass the cables for the rear speakers to the receiver. But again, I may do it in the new year. As you said, it will greatly improve the back sound.

Like the setup. This coming from a former long time Martin logan theatre owner.Just tie or tape the new set of cables one at a time to the existing rear speaker cables you have attached to your receiver and pull them thru. Just a suggestion?
