I'm really happy that this thread started and thanks for that. I thought I'm sharing some of the picture I took of my partly done install (6ch BASE system with no amp -> upgrade with MS-8 + amp(s)). Will start my own thread sometime later as the upgrade didn't really meet with my expectation yet in terms of SQ improvement and wanna ask some advice.
