That's why I picked up my VT-60 before they were all gone! smile.gif

The cabinets will be moved to the basement and possible garage sale item. frown.gif

Wow JT, those new bookies just say MUSIC!

Spinning the rear tire at 150mph while at 3/4 lean angle will put wrinkles in your seat

These bookshelf speakers are huge. 20" tall and sound great! You have to love craigslist when deals like this turn up. smile.gif

Dang, that's a towerette. Would love to hear them. Yes, CL does have it's moments, my second XPA-2 was acquired for low bucks and a warranty smile.gif

It's funny, I have all this power, and I'm rocking a pair of cans as we speak biggrin.gif

Looking good! Now figure out a way to get a bigger center and you'd really be on a roll. I think you'll probably notice as much if not more of a difference with a larger center that you do with larger fronts.

I just ordered a new one as a matter of fact. I wanted the RC-62II but it doesn't fit in my new cabinet, so I ordered the RC-52II. Hopefully the dual 5" woofers will make a difference. eek.gif

It has arrived! The new Klipsch RC-52II. It's much bigger than the RC-42II and sounds very good. I haven't hade the time to rerun Audyssey which will have to wait until Saturday. I also picked up new speaker stands which put the tweeters at ear level in my seating position. I can't wait for Saturday to complete the Audyssey! Here are a couple of pictures.

I like it. The setup looks as if it has a lot of room to breathe. How far away are you from the screen, actually?

My other question is with the speakers sitting lower than the screen do you still get a high enough image to be satisfying? if you're far enough away that may not matter, i guess. In my setup and room, sound seems to come from the TV in part because my speakers have a high image, plus the tweeter and midrange are at mid-screen height.

I sit 15 feet away from my entertainment center. The speakers sit about 4" higher then the RB-61's did on my old cabinets. Being this far away hasn't effected the image for me, it seems that there is a better sound stage then I had before. I think I'm done for a while with any up grades.. I have turned over almost every piece of equipment in the last 1.5 years. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy once I rerun audyssey! smile.gif

Looks great. I always liked the looks of Klipsch. Hope you are enjoying the sound.

It has been a while since I have checked in with the group. I have added a simple unit to my system. A used Slingbox Pro HD. Not that it does anything for my home system, but my wife an I built a new home at the Delaware shore and we only have Wi-Fi from my neighbor. So no cable. I am using the Slingbox connected to my FIOS DVR at home and watching it through my Microsoft Surface Pro and outputing the video to my Sony AVR in Delaware and all is good. The new house will eventually be our retirement home and currently has a Panasonic 50" UT50, Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu Ray Player, Sony 540 AVR, Klipsch RB61I , RB42II, Klipsch R-10SW subwoofer and Boston Acoustic in ceiling 6" surrounds. this is just a temporary system until we move and all old pieces that have rotated out of my home set up. We have about four years before I retire. The sweet thing is that we have an unfinished 2200 square foot basement that will, in time make a great place to create a man cave with that theater I have always dreamed of. I will definitely use these page for information and inspiration.

If you're only four years from retiring, then how the money is spent is even more important. I'd imagine you want to be sure of what you buy and place into the system (and the home for that matter). It would be a bad thing, I think, to spend extra to re-do or replace equipment unnecessarily.

Prepress, that is the single most important aspect of my current system that I have been considering. I feel the core of my equipment will fit in nicely once the basement has been finished. If and when I do upgrade I will be sure to shop for high quality units at bargain prices. My wife keeps me on a short leash when it comes to my electronics, so value is important. I have picked up speakers from craigslist, a number of Blu Ray players and AVRs from BB as open box item, all the while selling un-used equipment. For me that is part of the fun.
