cgrew: Haha when does it stop? I'm pretty sure there is no limit to what one can do to customize their home theatre..

I think I'll just stick to speaker wires on the carpet for the time being ;)

It never stops for some, i found my happy place a few years ago after getting married...... if i had kept up as before i would been made to feel unhappy......

cheap way of trying is fishing line tacked into the ceiling, i use triangular bits of wood slotted into each other to lift mine, i can perceive a difference, perhaps to do with static v.s dieletric?

taku: With an entry model of receiver, you can simply forget the bi-wiring idea to save bucks on expensive cables.

In most cases, believing in improvement of sound quality is like religious things. You will feel it if you believe it... amen.

The idea is not to save on using expensive cables but to bypass some ineffecient metal bridge bits on the binding posts.  Depending on the amp design the capacitance change of running 2 lengths may improve the sound as well, it could also have a negative impact, which some may take as an improvement in sound.  The trouble with hifi is that everyone has a difference of opinion on what sounds ideal.  I had someone over once who thought my system sounded a bit dull at the top end until i put on a recording that he said was unlistenable on his system (cos of too much sparkle) the recording was a reference audiophile'ish disc.

At least audiophiles have pseudo-science to back up their religious experiences....... :P
