Bottom Line:   
I had the system installed and sound tested by the store I purchased the system from. The XA-90's arrived in huge wooden crates the size of a refrigerator. I am extremely pleased by the speakers reproduction of the music. I don't really hear the position of the speakers but rather the individual instruments or vocals are truly spaced in front of me like a soundstage as if I am at a live performance. I have not experimented with the remote controlled base since I have subs to go with them. They were billed by the company as not needing help, but the store I purchased the system from felt adding the NHT's would be icing on the cake. The same store took first place in the recent CEDIA Home Theater conference held in Indianapolis for Home theatres under $60,000 so I trusted them. If you want your speakers for listening to music and be able to apply them for Home theatre use as well, I would highly recommend checking them out.

Bottom Line:   
After listening to Home Theater arrangements using Thiels cs 2.9, Aerial model 8, Nht's, and Kef's. As soon as I heard the XA-90s with the XA 55cr and XA 75 for rears I new this is what I had been looking for in Home Theater. When listening to Fleetwood Mac: The Dance, you become completely absorded in the music and you feel like you are at the concert. The soundstaging is excellent, especially when watching the Mask of Zorro played on a Tob 9000 DVD the voices were perfect and the very smallest details when Zorro was in the cave could be heard. These speakers will turn a average room into a top HT. No need for a Sub with these speakers.
