Just what I`ve heard, I`m sure one would never notice a difference audibly anyways, it`s more my OCD cable length issues hahaha, but it probably isn`t worth having a bunch of spare cable laying around, if it was like a foot or two it might not be a big deal but you might not want 9ft of slack, I`m sure you will get different arguments on it, either way I wouldn`t worry a whole ton and just do what you prefer
Also where the XPR 5 will be located, my left main will required 6 feet of cable and the right main will require about 14 feet. Is it okay to mix 2 different lengths of wires to connect the main speakers to the amp? Thanks
It's fine to mix them, but like creimes I'd probably keep them the same, why? Just because I usually end up moving things (amp or speakers), or these cables end up being used eventually for something else. If your sure you won't change it and you want to keep it neat then cut them to length.

Hi does anybody who owns 803d's know how to adjust the aluminum screw in the rear for the midrange? Mine came loose while removing the shipping nut. I just tighten it as far as it would go without much force.
I used to work for Best Buy, then transferred to MAV (Magnolia Audio Video). Magnolia is a separate entity that operates independently, owned by Best Buy. It gets murky because some Best Buys have a Magnolia section selling the lower tier of the premium selections. The Design Centers, with the "Magnolia Audio Video" signs, are the independent stores that will offer Rotel, McIntosh, Seura, Sunbrite, Sonus Faber, Peachtree, Runco, Savant, etc.. Those guys definitely make commission, and of course some of them are turds....unfortunately.
But, as Stanlee stated, you get all the financing options and Best Buy RewardZone perks so it has it's ups.
When I was there we had a client running the 803D's on a pair on Emotiva Mono's and it was nice. To my ear they weren't a great match with the Diamond tweeter and that MC8207 is a better pairing.....to MY ear. But, the Emo still rocked those speakers, and I believe the XPR5 will give you some fun times.
Last note, if any of you gentleman ever plan on heading to a Magnolia Design Center, shoot me a message with what you have in mind and I'll try to give you some insights into how to get the best price. Some of those margins can be eroded easily
I am in the 4th largest city in America and ALL our Best Buys have the lower tier products in the Magnolia area. In fact high end salons are dead in Houston. Too bad. Not one. Instead we have Home Theater installers that stock nothing and push the flavor of the week and what makes them the most $$$. No wonder mail order is alive and well
