Got any pictures of you're "first" system ?
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

Lovely shutters on the windows rich the S150t's look fairly discreet considering they are satin black on a light wall,especially as you have that print up with the bold black letteringHey shah1,
Crappy pic but I have them mounted about 3' above head height either side of the sofa.
Thanks Jason. I will get round to sinking the cables into the wall.Lovely shutters on the windows rich the S150t's look fairly discreet considering they are satin black on a light wall,especially as you have that print up with the bold black lettering
the M4T`s have better improved drivers in them so i`d have thought their are differences/improvements to be heardI currently have xenon 26's as rears with m7's at the front. As the m4t's are sold with the m7 package would i be better changing the xenon's for m4t's?
Hi HenryToday I tried the M4T positioned less than a foot above seated ear level as per Allan's recommendation. This was a big improvement in the sense of envelopment compared to near ceiling placement. Still not as good as my column surrounds but I could imagine the S150T positioned just above ear level being even better.
It was a great recommendation, thanks. Do/did you have them at 90 degrees or further back? I'm quite tempted by the S150Ts. Do you know of any sturdy tall (1m +) stands other than the Atacama ones? I can wall mount on one side but not the other.Hi Henry
I thought you`d like the differences when having them about 1 foot above seated ear height
the S150T`s of course would be even better than the M4T`s simply due to their having better drivers/tweeters in them
I used to think there would never be a better tripole speaker ever than the SS150`s but these new S150T`s surpass them in every way
Nobody likes a show off but I guess you have good reasons to be smug! I'm in the 'less is more' camp with a 4.1 system. Haven't used a centre speaker in years!Ideal AV said:i`ve got a full 11.2 Audyssey DSX setup now and its bloody marvellous
behind the screen are now 3 x MK2 150`s and 2 x M5 extra height channels
extra width duties are 2 x M7`s
surround sides 2 x S150T`s
surround backs 2 x IW95`s
