I've been a "passive" user here for some time so I thought it's about time putting out a thread with my current hometheater. In the past I've tried a lot of equipment before ending up with my current system, and for now I'm quite satisifed but I have some plans for nearby upgrades as well!
The reason why I 've called the hometheather/thread "the wall of sound" is this, my frontspeakers:
Front sepakers are 3xEAW CB523M (cinema speakers) and the 4 woofers are JBL 4645"C" (modified 4645)
Normally spakers are not shown since they are all behind the screen and panels, and it looks more like this:
In the back this is how it looks, surround speakers are 4xJBL 8340 (modified):
My only audio/video source is an HTPC, where I stream audio, video and TV from the mainserver (windows home srver) that holds aprox 20TB of material. I prefer the ease of use of streaming, so I rip all my DVDs/BluRays/CDs to the server.
At the moment I use an Onkyo 1007 as surround processor, but it will be replaced with either Emotiva XMC-1 or Sherbourn PT7030 when they are being released.
The EAW front speakers requires active x-over so I use 3xMiniDSP (one for eash speaker) for XO and EQ, and to power them I use an ATI AT6012 for mids and highs and I use Midgard Audio Oberon 6.1 (based on B&O ASP1000) for the woofers. The JBL subwoofers are powered by an Crown K2 and the surroundspeakers are powered by the remaining channels from the ATI AT6012.
I would love to have a bigger room, but for know this is the only alternative in our house so it will have to do... the size is aprox 11,5x18ft
The home theather is aprox 80% finished, it needs some more acoustic treamtments at the walls and also the last finish
