    Edit: Talking about the logans here.
    If I encountered a center channel I didn't like, I wouldn't use any of that line in my HT. I don't care how good any of the other speakers sound.
    A balanced HT system is the only way to go for me.

    I fully comprehend your points, and I appreciate you trying to save me from my own ignorance, but I am where I am right now, and I am very happy to be where I am.

    I LOVE the Usher Dancer Mini 2's! Not like... LOVE! And I am so stoke to be building a 5-channel system around them.
    Completely understand your points. I do however have a strong suggestion, what about building the bookshelf speakers into the wall? if this isn't an option I would call Usher and talk about your system and see what direction they point you in.
    I hate dealing with these kinds of issues. Glad you dig your speakers enough to deal with this.

    The center is not good for a whole room and I have a matinee center in the closet and a stage in the box. The surrounds that I mentioned are never going to blend with ML but they do a great job of pumping out surround info.

    Hey Mike, I'm very interested in the Triads. How did they sound when you heard them? Bright, warm, or what?

    Check out these new surrounds they make:

    They may be overkill... I'm liking the ones on ebay too.

    Sorry Ben been off the air this week on bus. travel...

    The whole system was triad and it was BIG. projector theater setup in a very acoustically dead room... I didn;t notice any too much of anything, and they very well balanced...the one noticeable thing was that nothing stood out negatively... when i look at these, i see a nice deal, and you have to see them with your ears :)



    They may be overkill... I'm liking the ones on ebay too.

    Sorry ben i've been off the air on bus travel this week

    They were in a high end projector based theater room, and the whole system audio system was tuned to the room really well and the acoustic treatments made it very dead.

    I watched some polar express, and that soundtrack was really awesome.

    I can't say that there was anything I didn't like about them and they did not seem bright or have any neg characteristics but then again this was a moderately big $$$$ ht

    Cool. The Triads look like a high quality product, my only concern is that they won't be bright enough to match the Usher DMD's. I pulled the trigger on a used pair of Totem Lynks. I'm hoping they'll have the "excitement" I'm looking for, given their 0.5" titanium tweeters rated to 30khz. Won't know till I give'em a whirl!
