Hey Guys,

I'm in Milwaukee as well.

I've been into home theater for the past 8 years or so and have had several cases of both the upgrade and downgrade bugs.

Currently (but not completely set up yet on account of just moving) I have:

Projector: RS50
Screen: Stewart 100" 16:9 Studiotek 130
Speakers: M&K THX s150 LCR, ss150 rears
Sub: SVS PB-12NSD
Electronics: Anthem D2, Lexicon amp, Oppo BDP93.

I'd love to find out what the rest of the Wisconsin faithful have setup. Now that the packers are out of it, I should have some more time for movies. That's my positive spin...

Mileaukeesk, welcome to the party! Hope we can meet some great people around the area.

Hows the room coming along? You get the RS50 up and running?

Room has a way to go. That said, I'm just working with the space I have for the time being. I'm not in a position to to build out the room like yours SOWK...although I'd like to.

Yes, the RS50 is mounted and running. So far it looks great with some minor tweaks using calibrations blu-rays. I may have to lure you and that iOne pro over with some good micro brews. For the time being, implementing a few of the suggested out of the box tweaks from several reviews and the forum has given me a very impressive picture.

I'm already tempted to pull out my Xrite DTP-94, but I know calibrating off of that thing will probably do me more harm than good on the RS50 considering it's OOTB picture. I think I just need to enjoy it for a while.

Welcome Mikesnapp. How long you been into the hobby and do you have a dedicated theater room? Or whatever room you could use?

I am still using a Barco 808 Graphics CRT projector and is still providing
a wonderful picture. A Oppo blueray player feeds a HD Fury III which
provides a analog output to the projector (Blueray's look great).

The speaker system consists of Martin Logan Summits combined with Magneplanar
Tympani IV bass panels and a TRW-17 rotary subwoofer. Center channel
is a Martin Logan Logos and rear speakers include 4 Gallo Micro's. Side channels
are Spica TC-50's and two more Gallo Micro's.

The room is completely treated with ASC tube traps, GIK bass traps and other
acoustical devices.

PS Audio Perfectwave dac and transport
Mark Levinson 380S preamp
Audio Research D400 MK II power amp
Arcam AVR600 receiver

Hey rwaaudio,
How do you like the Arcam AVR600? I had one of those for a while but got frustrated with some of it's quirks, especially with the video/hdmi. That said, It was easily the best sounding receiver I've heard.

I've got a AVR350 in a second system that I don't think i'll ever give up.

I purchased the Arcam AVR600 for it's sound only and all I can say is that
it provides superb fidelity. I have had the Arcam for 3 years and its
working perfectly.

Audio is my first priority (audiophile for 50 years)

Keeping audio and video circuits isolated from each other provides
many benefits (lower noise, cleaner sound, etc.)

Mike,
Sure would have been nice if you would have provided some detail on your gear on that link

Great set up!

Kind of makes my overview look weak.

Question to everybody:

Where do you guys buy your equipment? Do you have a local store you frequent, online, Chicago?

For me, I've found that I make most of my purchases online, but would like to find a good local source as dealing with a remote dealer can be a pain.

I buy a lot from the site we are on now... AVSForum.

They have some great prices on a lot of great hardware.

I have had the rotary subwoofer for over 3 years and there is no going
back to conventional subs. My room is 29' long x 19' wide x 11' high and
requires considerably less than its full output for powerful, very low
distortion infra bass, with essentially perfect transient response. Pipe organ, electronic music and a ton of ultra low frequency sounds from movies,
without the fear of over driving is reassuring.

Using the Rotary sub at the right level for the room, does not in any
way make one feel sick, as some have suggested, but gives one a realistic
and exciting foundation for all of the above examples.

It's a dual purpose room, living room/ home theater room.

Are you running 3d on the 95? I'd love a demo of that!

I'm not unfortunately. Never got into the whole 3D thing. If you have a 3D movie I would be willing to test it.

I'm actually in the process of selling the Sony and will probably replace with the BenQ W7000.

Speakers: JTR Triple 12 LCR, Mirage OCR Surrounds
Subs: Dual JTR Captivators (passive)
Electronics: Denon 4311CI, Emotiva XPA-5 (speakers), Peavey IPA-3000 (subs), Oppo BDP-83, Panasonic BDT210

My room is more of a "media" room. Not dedicated as it's part of a larger room with pool table, bar, etc. But I try to make it as "theater like" as possible with theater seating, room treatments, black out curtains, etc.

Maestro,
Looks like youve got a great setup. How's that passive sub setup working for you?

BTW- While I agree New Glarus is great, I think Lakefront gives it a run for the money

Not as up on high end audio as you, I had to look up what a rotary sub was....Wow! I can't imagine what good 5Hz sounds like. Does it blend well?

Love it! I was a little nervous when I bought the subs of having to power them myself but I have no regrets now. They are powerful and succinct and the amp gives them plenty of juice.

I have to admit that I've never tried Lakefront before. I'll look for it.
