    ATMOS 7.1.2 or 5.1.4

    I didn't hear a big difference going from 5.1 to 7.1 in my setup. Now my rears aren't ideally placed as they had to be mounted higher, but I do have them angled down towards my listening position. Dolby recommends going with 4 In-Ceiling as opposed to 2. I feel a proper 5.1.4 would sound better than a 7.1.2.

    Reason for angled bases on RP-280F

    I asked Klipsch the same question when I reviewed the RF7 III and I was told it was just cosmetic.
  4. I have owned the larger RS62 and RS62 II and my ears could not hear a difference between the two. The Version 2 have rounded grills vs triangular shaped grills. Woofers on Version 1 are Bronze color while newer Version 2 are a nicer looking copper.

    First Klipsch System Build!!

    Welcome @Aplante. You have come to the right place. Lots of friendly guys here willing to help. Definitely a great way to save some money. The RC-64 is an incredible center channel. It was designed to go with the RF63 or the larger RF83. I owned the RF83 with RC64 for many years and only sold them after purchasing a pair of LaScalas. $250 for an RC64 (even the Version I) is a great deal. I believe it retailed for around $800 - $900 new. I bought my RC64 in Jan of 2009 for $571.00 when Klipsch was discontinuing the Cherry Finish and was able to get a great deal on it. It would be an EXCELLENT center to start with (and likely finish with) unless you want to upgrade to the LaScalas. The RC62 is a great center channel. I personally would not go with anything smaller than the RC62 (like the RC52, RC42 etc). Is the RC64 worth $120 more, I personally think but $120 is a fantastic price for a very good center channel too. You will hear the term "Voice Matching". Typically you want to have at least your front three speakers voice matched. This basically means they have the same sound characteristics (same type tweeter and woofers, similar crossover etc). If you have RF82 (Reference Series) and try and use a KV3 (used in the Epic Series), they have a completely different tweeter so when sounds pan across the front three speakers, you will hear a change in sound going from one speaker to the next. The absolute best setup would be to have three identical speakers up front that way there is an absolutely seamless transition from one speaker to the next but the reality is most people do not have the space or ability to have a vertical center channel, thus the reason for horizontal center channels. As you can see from the screenshot below, I have owned a few Klipsch over the years. I say this not to brag...but to forewarn of the addiction. LOL. Hope that helps, Michael

    WTB: Academy center speaker (Found)

    The Craigslist Ad I posted has the SF2 for $100. His Academy is listed at $150 but has been listed for over a month. If it is still available, the seller might be willing to take less.

    Need recommendations on speaker wires and banana plug

    I agree. I typically buy the 14 gauge CL2 Rated (since some runs are in the attic) but it also looks nice in the room as well - https://amzn.to/2OVw0CX Definitely a great bang for your buck as mentioned. I LOVE using banana plugs but I'm constantly comparing between speakers, reviewing different receivers, integrated amps and external amplifiers so it's essential to me just for the convenience factor. As mentioned, there is no sonic benefit by using them. I made a video about them on my channel.
