    My HC is a loft conversion - the side walls are vertical for 3ft, then pitch at a 45 degree angle with a flat "roof" .

    My question is this - I currently have a 5.1 speaker system (Quadral Ascent line)fed by a pioneer 908 receiver, But I fancy upgrading to a 6.1 system (via the new Denon 3802 receiver).

    the rears are currently on very deep shelves about 4 ft behind the seating position (bipolars) - should I get a new pair of bipolars and mount them on the 45degree angled walls either side of the listening position , and use my existing rears for the EX/ES channel ??

    Is it more important to match the sides and fronts,or rears and fronts ? (Quadral dont make a "flat backed" speaker, so couldn`t match the wall speakers to the rears).

    Any thoughts appreciated,as always.

    Can't comment on most questions you ask, but Ruark are releasing the Dialogue II in the next 2 or 3 weeks which come with a mounting bracket which can be used with ceilings.<br />I'm having 7 for an EX system completely suspended from the roof.

    Those people from Ruark (and REL) are exceedingly kind to you, Spectre!
