It's the M3...I used to drive on track once and awhile, but haven't for a few years since I sold my vette...so I like the balance of being a comfortable car to drive day to day, but it has the handling and power to go on track once and awhile and have fun. 414hp V8 with 7 speed DCT (Double Clutch Trans) and the Competition Package which lowers it and improves handling. I have to drive it nicely for the first 1200 miles, it is tough!

You're killing me. We have a wind chill of -13°F (that's -7°C for our goofy metric inclined people) outside now. Not fit for man nor beast. Good thing I'm inside sipping on coffee in my pj's and slippers.

That's awesome, KC. The new M3's with the V8s are quite the car. Too cool you're able to take it out on the track and open it up. Patience young one, 1200 miles will be here before you know it. I drive a 5 series. I know, I'm all house trained and domesticated now.

im a bit late to ask about the JL's but anyway aside from the more musicality they offer do they go as deep and play as powerfully (db's) as the svs ultras?

Sorry for the late response!

While I would think the SVS can go a tad bit more deep, I have never missed them since stepping up to the JLs. The bass itself is so much more well defined, and the overall bass for music or movies is much more real. They are more expensive for sure, but they take up a lot less space and you get what yu pay for.

Cheers!

Curious about your opinions on this, now that you have had it for a little while.

Beautiful setup. That's a room to be proud of for sure.

I see you have the 803D's for surrounds. How did you arrive at the decision to use the 803D's and not say the 802D's or 804S's?

I'm having a hard time deciding what to use for my 4 surrounds. I have 802 Diamonds and the HTM2 Diamond up front. I have ruled out the 805 Diamond for surrounds because I don't like the thought of having such expensive speakers on stands that could be accidentially knocked over and I also like to listen to music in surround sound and I find it makes a world of difference to have towers and not bookshelves allowing for deeper bass that more closely match the mains. My choices would be 2 pairs of 804 Diamonds or 803 Diamonds. The 803 Diamonds almost match the 802 Diamonds in bass extension and are high enough so that the tweeter would be above ear level which I think would be more preferrable for a surround speaker. The 804 Diamonds would obviously save me a bit of money however they do not quite have the bass extension of the 803 Diamonds and the tweeter would be at ear level. What do you think would be the better choice? I'm not sure if I will get an opportunity to do an in home demo of either let alone a demo of 2 pairs of each so I would be buying blind so to speak. I have heard both the 804S and 803D at different times over the past few years at my dealers. I would of course love to have 2 more pairs of 802 Diamonds but that is very unlikely to happen.

Thanks for the comments, in regards to your surround setup, I can offer my own findings, as I was running 805s previously in the rear(older non d model) and found a huge change in the rear of the room fill going to the 803ds. As you mentioned, I think the height of these is more suitable for surround duty, clearing my chairs etc. Now when listening to any surround music mixes (which I do a lot) the presentation feels more equal...the 800ds and the HTM1d don't over power the rears. While 802ds would be cool, I think it is overkill...good luck!

Thanks very much for the feedback. It was nice to hear you previously had the 805S but upgraded to a tower. Knowing that the 803D can hold it's own with the 800D and HTM1D and not draw attention to itself is also very good to hear.

It's been a while since I have done an update...I will post a few pix shortly. I have upgraded my Oppo 83 to the 93 which is a good improvement. Also added a macmini modded by Mach music with Pure Music running my iTunes with a 2tb external FireWire HD. I control it from my iPad and it is connected to my Classe SSP 800 by a Wireworld platinum HDMI. Really thrilled with the sound quality and ease of use of this system!
