Upfiring can be effective. I’d be on the lookout in the used market for a set of them at a cheap price so you can try it without investing a ton.I had some klipsch 140s that I sold for 225 but there have been slick deals since in them for under 200

ceiling is next level tho

SVS prime elevations would be worth looking at to mount on the front walls too maybe. Again not super cheap though.

I am now considering a pair of Klipsch R-41SA's currently on sale, to use for front heights. If i decide to go with them, i would definitely have to mount on the wall, as they are to big to fit on top of my fronts (R-51M's) Would i set these up in my Denon as front heights or front Dolby? Also, should they be mounted as high as possible on the wall? My MLP is about 9.5ft from Center Channel.

Below is a pic of space available in front.

Ordered the R-41SA's and sounding just fine. Next question....................I am getting ready to pull the plug on an Audio Technica turntable. I have no room on top of my stand for it and am considering either moving the center channel up and placing the turntable on top of the stand or installing a small shelf above the center channel and placing the turntable there. By looking at my above pic. which would be better acoustically?

I say move the center channel up and put the turntable on a more stable platform

Thanks @mazersteven, being that the stand is glass, should isolator pads of some sort be used under the turntable feet? Sorry for asking in this thread but i didn't see a dedicated subforum thread for turntables. Maybe i overlooked it?

I do not own a turntable but in the past several months have researched enough because I'm looking to purchase one myself and from what I found you want the turntable to be as isolated as possible so nothing interferes with the tonearm and the cartridge. Any vibrations, anything like that so I would say yes

Thanks for your input. I grew up with record players and turntables and have just recently become quite interested in them again. The popularity of Vinyl music is definitely making a fad-like comeback. What sold me to invest again, was when my daughter purchased one and after listening to several LP's, i was hooked. I've just ordered an entry level table, Audio Technica LP-120XUSB to toy with.

So where did you end up mounting them? A really good plan B is high and to the sides. Sounds like you’re good but just curious.

That's a nice turntable. I've kind of had the same experience growing up listening to vinyl. Got away from it for a long time for some reason I like to get back involved.
