We're redoing a client's home theater due to a flood event; foot+ of water in the room resulted in the room being completely stripped bare for water remediation, so basically we're starting from scratch. (Thankfully for the client, insurance should cover all the costs!)
The front stage was originally a RBH 641-SE L/R and 661-SE C combo, but the client would like to now bury the speakers to reclaim the floor space, and wall limitations are such that this means ceiling speakers. Now, I'm not a fan of ceiling speakers for a dedicated theater, but that may just show my lack of experience with them.
My first thought was Triad's ceiling LCRs, saw them at a show (but didn't hear them) and was impressed by the 30deg orientation and build quality. But we don't carry Triad, so I'm considering alternatives like SnapAV's [b]Episode 700 HT700[/b] [Link: snapav.com]
or [b]DefTech's UIW Reference RCS II[/b] [Link: definitivetech.com]
... fwiw, speakers will likely be driven by Parasound 5250 amp or similar.
Has anyone used either of these LCRs, particularly the SnapAV? I've read some pretty intriguing things about their 700 series on RC, so would love to hear first-hand feedback from folks who've done rooms with the HT700.
