Hi All, the Lovely GF and I have just moved into our newly purchased house and the HT came with us. imo the setup is much better than before cause I could actually wall mount the surround speakers in the new house and the floor is no longer a SubWoofer-unfriendly concrete slab. We are also about 1 meter closer to the Plasma making it feel even bigger than before!

Equipment:

Display:
Pioneer 50MXE20 50" High Defintion Plasma Monitor

Audio:
Marantz SR-8001 THX Select2 7.1ch AV Receiver
Krix Neuphonics Mains, Epicentrix Center, Equinox Rears and Seismix 5 SubWoofer

Sources:
Media Centre PC with 3x HDTV FTA Tuners, Vista MC, ICE Guide w/ WebGuide
Toshiba HD-XE1 HD-DVD & HD Scaling Multi-Region DVD Player
Sony BDP-S300 BluRay & HD Scaling R1 DVD Player

IR Control:
URC Complete Control MX-810 IR/RF Universal Remote Control
URC Complete Control MRF-250 RF BaseSation

Interconnects:
KORDZ Evolution HDMI Cables
KORDZ Velocity 216 Speaker Cables w/ Kordz GBP-241 Banana Plugs

Yep! My first were MC2s(?). One panel each. Got 'em used in 77. Even lugged them to college in the last year. Crazy now that I think about it. Still had 'em as of a year ago (not working tho). Paired with Audio Research they were to die for! Couldn't afford that either. But caught the bug and had it ever since...

Simple, but really kicks. Just added the hd-xa2, superb picture. Usiing the analog outs to enjoy Dolby TrueHD. Mits wd-y65 DLP display, JBL e20 fronts, JBL ec25 center, JBL e10 surrounds, Velodyne dps-12 sub. Panasonic sa-he 200 receiver. The vcr and dish dvr don't get a lot of use anymore. The detail in HD DVD movies is fantastic. (see screen shots from 2001) Been watching a lot of my old SD movies again on the xa2 - they look great. Looking to upgrade to an Onkyo 705 to cut down on the wire jungle behind the tv.

I have never heard of Krix. How do Krix speakers compare to some other popular speakers that you have heard?

By the way, you have a very sweet set-up.

Krix are a very well know Aussie brand made in Adelaide, SA and over 80% of Aussie cinemas use Krix professional cinema speakers. Apparently quite a few US cinemas use them too.

They are just exceptional Quality, Im not going to sprout audiophile speak, but I will say that mine are the best speakers I've ever heard for under $10k AUD.

Thanks for the kind words.

I was thinking the same thing. Everytime I see silver stuff I go yuck but this time it fits very well with everything. It looks light and cozy. Love it.

And for good reason. Theaters are at their best the darker they are...especially for those of us with pj's. Silver (and other light colors) reflect light...undesirable.

Yeah. Nice, clean setup djos. Very contemporary.

That is no reason for the outright animosity for silver components I see from people. It is a style preference.

A true theater should have all the equipment completely hidden away from sight anyway so the color of equipment should have no effect.

Well, I in no way inferred that it did.

I don't know about that. I would state that in a good theater the components and other objects are positioned in such a way that they are not a visual "problem."

Hey John-Clark,

Boy those photos of tundra bring back memories that send shivers up my spine. I lived in St.Paul for a year once. No, not Minnesota, the island in the middle of the Bering Sea. Nice setup though!

John, Not trying to pry, but why Iceland? Were you born there and that is your home, or does work bring you there? Looks like some sort of Government outpost or reserach center from the pics. Dennis
