I've wanted these speakers since I read your reviews here. But $799 was out of my range.

Just thought you'd be interested to know various music retailers are selling these at 1/2 off to make way for the new Epos line. I finally picked up my pair....in fact, I was so happy about it that I bought an extra pair, so now I have a center channel and a spare! :)

I bought a pair yesterday as well and looking for center speaker now. Any chance you want to recoup some of your money and sell your spare speaker?

xanadu,

What color did you buy? I bought black.

I might be interested; are you on AVS forum? Contact me there; it's a better place for this type of thing.

I sent you a note via AVS forum, but you likely did not get it as I do not see it in my "sent" folder and there is a requirement of at least 15 posts to be able to send PMs on that forum (just found that out and I hardly post). Can you send me a PM on AVS with your e-mail address so we can communicate that way?

What is your name on AVS? There are 15 different Xanadus there.

Xanadu76. I got your pm on avs but can't reply to it (that 15 posts minimum thing). can you send another pm with your email address and i will write you from my yahoo e-mail account?
Thanks.

I am going to jump on the 1/2 off price for the Epic2's, but I had settled on a Marantz CR610 Receiver and see that the speakers are 4 Ohm and the CR610 wants 6-8 Ohm speakers. Is this a serious mis-match? Or can I make it work somehow? (I like the Marantz feature set for general family room usage)

Thx!

It won't be so much of a problem but you won't be able to crank it as loudly.
