S360 vs 83XX for home theater

Youngling Viestejä: 18 Liittymispäivä: 1.1.2016 Viimeisimmät viestit

I am looking to purchase some Genelecs for my home theater, but the emphasis is on music. The room is 7 X 5 X 2.41 meters. I have a pre-processor with Dirac Live so I don't think I'll be using GLM since my subs and surrounds are not Genelecs. Seating distance is 3.4 meters for the first row and 5.8 meters for the second row, I am trying to decide between 3 S360s up front (with the center sitting on the floor and angled up) or either 8351s or 61s. Any thoughts on what would work better here given the listening distances and placement?

 

If I get the 83 series I can horizontally mount the center and get it about 10 inches off the ground. Thanks!

Just talked with Genelec here in the US. They recommend either the 51 or 61 due to broader cover and the fact that the 360 center would need to sit on the floor. I'm thinking going with the 61 since the main focus is two channel music and I can run without a sub and use GLM for music and switch to Dirac for 11.2 when I watch movies and television.
