By second pair of Beolab 9s arrived yesterday. I can confirm that they sound GREAT as rear speakers with the Theatre. My setup is as follows:

Center: Theatre

Front L&R: BL9

Surround L&R: BL1

Rear L&R: BL9

Front Height L&R: Theatre up-firing speakers

Rear Height L&R: BL4000


The BL9s as rears give a very balanced, enveloping, warm bass. The sound is much more natural than when I used BL6000s as rears. The BL6000s as rears sounded distracting and unnatural.
