So my Theater is in disaster-mode right now. Moved all the gear out, awaiting the new rack this week. I'm going through big-screen withdrawal right now. Thank goodness for the media room system to hold me over until the rack comes.

I have to say considering that you just started this thread on Feb 20th, this thread delivers! Have enjoyed all your posts so far and look forward to seeing your upgrades to come.

Well thank you kindly! I appreciate the kind words--I'm just aiming to share my passion. My entire adult life, I've never been able to discuss or show my friends any of my gear, because to them--one black box is just the same as another black box. I'm so glad I was able to find this group here who, not only know understand the benefits of different Home Theater/HiFi equipment, but are passionate about it! Kudos to this entire WYSC Forum!!!

I know exactly what you mean. Most people don't get HT much more than "if you do have a projector: it's a HT". Although, I'm sure your visitors are routinely impressed when you let them hear what your ultra can do.

I have had this same experience over the 35 years that I have had this electronics bug. Being able to discuss these topics with people who understand and share the same enthusiasm is rewarding. Not just being the person your friends go to with a technical question. lol

While my theater is disassembled, awaiting the new rack, here are some pics of my upstairs media room (this room is fulfilling my entertainment needs until the rack comes for the downstairs theater)

Media Room


In-Ceiling Surrounds (Sonance Speakers)


In-Ceiling Right, Center, and Left channels (Sonance Speakers)


Panasonic Plasma


Side Profile - Media Closet closed


Side-Profile - Media Closet Opened


Monster Computer Rig i built--3X Nvdidia GTX285, Quad-Core Processor Overclocked to 4.2Ghz, 6 GB Tri-Channel Ram, 5 Terabytes of Hard-Drive storage. This is my baby!


Denon AVR 4310ci and Oppo BDP-83--these used to serve the downstairs theater. Now, they're waiting for me to insert them into the media room system I just haven't found the time.....

Yeah, I've found that the media room gives a satisfying theater experience, although not mind-blowing like the downstairs theater gives. and YES!!! Amanda brown is spectacular--she's really an up-and-comer to keep an eye out for!!

I remember starting off with a Sony Stereo when I was married 14 years ago and I thought that was Home entertainment at it's best.

Btw From seeing your pics from the beginning of this thread, fantastic. Also how do you find the Sonance speakers ?

Hey Franin, I got those Sonance Speakers three years ago from www.vanns.com (no tax, free shipping) They were having some insane sale, and I bout ten pairs! I installed about half of them throughout the house, but I still have five pairs in boxes in my coat closet, begging to be used. lol.

It's great having to have music throughout the house. Have you installed any outside?

Unfortunately, these speakers are not waterproof, so i'm limited to indoors, but honestly--I don't mind. I don't spend that much time in the back-yard.

Well, I canceled the rack order. It seems like the processing delay was a blessing!!! I had buyers remorse and realized the nearly 2K i spent on the racks could have been spent starting my journey to five Emotiva XPA-1's. I can always get the two 20 Amp circuits extended into the equipment room. As soon as the money is back in my account, I'll be pulling the Trigger on two XPA-1's. Two down, three to go!!!!

500 wpc each. This will be serious sound when the setup is complete. I looked at XPA-1s (the company is in my hometown, too), and they are brutes. I don't know how loud you play your music, but I hope the neighbors are friendly, and the house well-constructed.

Hey Broc,

Out of curosity, what is driving your desire to upgrade from the xpa 5? Are you looking for more volume than the xpa 5 can provide with your klipsch setup? I have the xpa 5 myself and have never even come close to to it's limits and my polks are much less efficent than your speakers.

I remember an article in the NY Times some years back stating that, technically, it's an HT with at least a 27" screen.

Hey Genilas!!

I want to upgrade to five XPA-1's because in my next house, I plan on having a rather large dedicated theater and I need to get all my dedicated theater gear NOW before I get married. I love the XPA-5, and will continue to use it with the XPA-1's to power width and height channels--bi-amped!!!

LOL....They are brutes indeed!!!! Thankfully, my neighbors have not complained, and I try to be considered during late-night listening sessions or movie watching. Key word is....try. Sometimes i can't help myself!

I recently put the black trim on the XPA-5. It's funny how the trim-kit dramatically increases the aesthetics! I may post a pic for comparison!!

Monsters, yes, but how are they working for you? That's the main question I have. What lengths are they and did you connect them easily, etc.

Greetings! I got the 1 Meter Cable, and they are indeed stiff. At first, I did worry that if anything knocked against them, they would rip the socket right out of the power conditioner, but the Panamax is holding up fine. (exhales). In terms of performance, I did notice a difference, although it's not a night-and-day difference at all. The best way to characterize the difference I heard is to say I heard more texture in strings (much of my listening consists of classical string pieces--particularly Cello and Double Bass).

Put it like this, if an Audio Ninja broke into my house and replaced the AC5 with the Stock Power Cord, when I got home, I wouldn't notice it in movies or gaming, but if I played a piece with strings, I'd know.. I am happy to report that it is not a placebo effect. The difference is certainly there.
