    Hello, I'm currently searching for a new home and picking one with the right listening space is the top priority. Some options I've looked will have ceilings where the drywall will drop at least a foot or two. I'll normally see this along the edges of the ceiling, but sometimes going through...

    Outlaw RR2160 vs Parasound P6
