I forgot about the K9 Chris,I dare say putting the centre above will be fine as long as it looks ok ?Yeah they are at a dog friendly height, can't really take the risk of having them too low unfortunately as she is rather "bouncy" at times! The instructions seem to suggest all at one height or the centre over the screen so it's a possibility. I could just drill some holes and see what I think, I'm not sure it will go down very well if I change my mind though.
They sound good, different rather than worlds apart from the XTZ's because of how good the ribbon tweeter's are. The 2510's are definitely a step up but being in a smaller room obviously impacts how they sound and I won't be getting the best out of the MP150's from my Arcam AVR350.
Problem is the rack it sits in is a bit tight for most receivers so its a bit of a non starterjason shep said:It's going to look really tidy once you put the cables through the wall,I wonder if an AVR with room correction would slip under the radar & help get the best from them,don't tell Mrs ChrisNic i suggested that though
I would just go with what works best in you're room,the MP's probably need a little more power at the lower end of their frequency range than the S150's due to the smaller cabinets/greater air pressure.I know it's early days, but has anybody yet done direct listening comparisons between the S150 MK2's and MP150 MK2's? I have been performing industrial-level lurking for months, but can't recall seeing anything direct, although Rob has make the odd comment.
A few people's direct comparisons would certainly help me with my decision making process - I need all the help I can get! Obviously my own listening would be key but the thoughts of those more experienced would help back up what I can (or can't) detect myself.
It's a no brainer,speakers behind an acoustically transparent screen is the only way to do it properlyThe trouble is that my (dedicated) room is under construction. If I were to go with the MPs (behind the screen) I would need to bring the screen wall forward. For the S150s the screen will be on the front wall, with the speakers below/to the side. So by the time I will be in a position to listen to speakers in my room (with carpet etc in place) it will be far too late too to make a decision. Hence the need for as much experience (mine + others more expert) prior to purchase.
That seems to be so Slingo just goes to show,even when using room correction that helps to blend the surrounds,it still makes a difference to have speakers that are designed to go togetherJason Shep
Having pro tweeters at the front as well now in your MP150 MK2 will no doubt help the S150T blend into the background a little more.
Hi Rich, you got any pics of your rears S150T's?I personally would swap this round. Speakers below the screen.
My MK's are at ear level and the LCD screen is above a fire place. Yes the screen is high but we have no issues with it. It's been in this position for 5 years. The sound is phenomenal and viewing is very comfortable. The screen is only 42" and will be replaced with a 50" which will be mounted about 5" lower. .picture taken whilst seated on the sofa about 3.4m away.
Hi Allan, I just wanted to see how Rich had mounted them. I'm sure you had just sold yours when I visited if I remember correctly.. BTW I need to book another visit sometime soon, I'll be in touch
