Hi Everyone,

I have been using BL8000 as Fronts, BL6000 as Rears, and a BL7.4 as Centre with a Sony TV/Yamaha Receiver in a 5.0 setup, using 'AV Connection' trigger cables - so far with great success.

However I've just moved home, and the BL7.4 simply won't 'fit' into the space available below the TV without a massive amount of upheaval.  Luckily, I have a BL 7.2 still in storage, and so I have the option to change out the BL7.4 for the BL7.2.

The BL7.4 has proven itself to be an excellent choice as a centre speaker, so I'm a bit concerned that the BL7.2 won't work so well in a 5.x setup.  So I was wondering if anyone can comment on using a BL7.2 in a surround sound setup similar to my own?

I also have a BL19 which I use wirelessly with a pair of BL18's and a Moment, but frankly I don't think it's getting it's full use there.  I've thought instead of using it wired to the Yamaha Receiver to create a 5.1 setup, but I haven't found much written about using this speaker this way.  Does anyone have any comments on using a BL19 wired to a non-B&O receiver?

Most of this stuff is still in storage, so before I go to the trouble of retrieving it and setting it all up, I'd be grateful for any opinions on this subject.

As always, any and all input is appreciated.
