The next issue of TAS (August cover date, June 27 mail date) has my review of the Sunfire Cinema Ribbon system and SubRosa subwoofer as a two-channel stereo pair. Bob Carver orignally designed the Cinema Ribbon as a stereo speaker, and talks about why in my interview with him that accompanies the review.

Although you can hold the Cinema Ribbon in an outstretched hand, the design goal was to deliver the soundstaging and acoustic output level of Carver's Amazing Loudspeaker, a 5'-tall planar speaker.

The Cinema Ribbon has some outstanding characteristics, including one of the best soundstages I've heard. Not bad for a speaker that costs $800 each.

How do consumers feel about the ease (or not) of integrating these into their home theaters?

The CRM has been extremely popular, largely because they are small and unobtrusive. I suspect that most CRMs are mounted on shelves, bookcases, or in home-entertainment furniture rather than on stands out into the room.
