I received my new HT speakers earlier this week. RTi A7, CSi A6, FXi A6 and a DSW Pro 600 sub. All is powered with an Onkyo 876. It is set up in a fairly large room 750 square feet.
It's 5.1 system now but due to the large room I feel I need to add the other two speakers for a 7.1 set up.
Here's the problem...........Wife hates the way the FXi A6's (white) looked compared to the beautiful cherry wood on all the other speakers. I'm thinking about sending the 2 FXi A6's back and get 4 RTi A3's. This would make her happy (cherry wood) and give me the 7.1 system I would like.
I'm interested in your thoughts on swapping out the FXi A6's for the RTi A3's?
What would this do to the overall listing experience? Etc......
Another option is to move the Surrounds to the middle and order a set of RTi A3's for the rear, but I will have to listen to her about the ugly white speakers in the middle.
We watch more movies that listen to music, about 60/40.
