Hopefully, in a couple weeks I will have everything up and running, with an audio experience that is very noticeably better (including a ton of features).

I have been considering an AVR upgrade since my initial Sony speaker and Dayton sub purchases, but upgraded sub and front speakers (again if I count the Yamaha HTiB speakers and sub) first as I was told it matters more.

However, going from an HTR-3066 to a RX-A2070 should be quite a leap. And I bet going from 5.1 to 7.1 should be nice too. Already have rear surrounds, just can't hook them to current 5.1 AVR.

Quite excited...


Awesome looking forward to some pics and seeing how you like it. I’m also upgrading tonight. My CM Center 2 S2 came in. Going to pick it up now. Some Audyssey sweeps tonight and I should be good to go!

Looks real nice. VTI had a model like that with each shelf having spiked feet resting on the lower shelf. But I opted for the design where the whole rack is one solid piece. I'm guessing the difference is for isolation purposes? Also 3 legs instead of 4 for the reasons outlined in this thread in the past.

I think I might have heard that center when I demoed the AVRs in Magnolia. For some reason, I seemed to levitate towards Martin Logan especially for music and Bowers and Wilkins for movies. The Definitive Technology speakers didn't impress me at all for whatever reason. They didn't have SVS primes there, so don't know how they compare in that store environment.

Will take some pics of rack and AVR once I get everything. However, my room is a bit crowded and cables are all over the front left corner so while my setup sounds great, it is not particularly clean looking.

I use a VTI spiked model which doubles as a center channel stand. This is in my upstairs media room which is in the final stages of construction!

Looks real solid. Are those amps on the lower shelf?

CC looks different than most designs.

Isn't that, in part at least, what the rack is for? Organization? Maybe take the opportunity to clean it up a bit. I just spent the night redoing my center setup. I had the CM Center on this before: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Then I read it maxes out at 30lbs and the CM Center 2 is about 45lbs. So off to Home Depot I went to get a proper shelf for the support. Got one that holds 66lbs. Here's my new center setup.
