I am very happy to report that we moved into our new home on 28 February, exactly 4 years after the earthquake destroyed our old one.
We went ahead and mounted the atrium speaker – without an enclosure – and it seems to be very acceptable for listening to background music.
Actually, we are thrilled with the whole system, especially the home theatre which sounds terrific. We recently visited a friends place who has a very upmarket (and expensive) system in a custom designed home theatre room. We took over a Bob Dylan DVD that we play a lot on our system, so know it very well. The only difference I could pick was a slightly more encompassing bass – thanks I guess to his double subwoofer setup. Otherwise I thought the sound quality from our system was every bit as good as his. My wife commented on the way home that she also thought that there was no difference in the sound quality between our systems, but that our chairs were far more comfortable. That is an important consideration that I do not see mentioned in home theatre literature. To be honest, I often put on a good musical DVD, close my eyes, lie back and let the music wash over me – I can’t do that sitting in an upright chair. Maybe that’s just me.
Friends have also commented on how wonderful it is to have background music throughout the house. MR audio is something quite new here, so hopefully some of the speaker business might go your way in the future. You can be assured that I am singing your praises to everyone who will listen.
Many thanks for all of your assistance and advice, for your great speakers, and the excellent service.
With kindest regards
