In your opinions, are in-wall speakers capable of producing as good sound as floorstanding speakers? Why or why not? This is a discussion that I was having with a friend and was curious as to what other's opinions are.
From what I've heard in my friends multi-million dollar homes with big dollar in-wall theatre combos, they're decent, but they just don't cut it. Especially for music. I feel that all placements are a compromise and nothing is "right," no matter what the budget is. But, maybe I've just not heard the right combo. Now that I am used to listening to the dipole ESL's, it is hard for me to like anything that doesn't produce such good clairy and imaging, so those seem to be the first things that I pick out whe listening to other combos.
