Hello AVS! Been here for awhile, but this is my first thread here I think. Well I've been saving up for almost a year now. This is a bday/Christmas gift to myself. Hooray!biggrin.gif

First I'd like to thank Ed and Eli from SVS for hooking me up BIG time. They were very helpful and very generous with me. They answered all my emails in a flash and were patient with all my questions + it took awhile for me to get it. The box arrived on my bday Tuesday! I hooked it up last night friday and after some tweaking/Mic setup I got it to my liking. After 20 hours or so it should be even more awesome! Special Thanks to TheJman for his awesome review of the PB1000, which made my decision even easier. I'm very impressed with this sub and will play some music and movies later on today. Thank you and more pics to come later!

Hi slemmon! I love it. It suits my studio apt. just fine and it's the tightest sub I've ever had. It blows my mind every-time I hear it. My neighbors hate me more now. smile.gif I'll have some more pics up this weekend.

Ok lets go back to the beginning when I first got my first system together in 2011-12. These are the only pics I have from the setup. You'll find out why in my next post. Stay tuned.

A year ago this week...Had these Pioneer 52's for only for 3 weeks, which I bought as a gift for myself:

You can see how high it went with the line on the wall. Almost 4 1/2 feet of water:

The fridge toppled over:

It so hard looking back at these pics. Everything pretty much got ruined. Next up and on a happier note with alot of help from forum friends cool.gif at the AH site I got to rebuild a newer setup and kept my sanity at ease, which I'm forever grateful and humbled.

Well I went and did it. Long story short I looked at Rojo's signature and saw he had some Butt shakers and asked him about it. I always thought they were a gimmick and never considered them, low and behold I bought a pair after Rojo's encouragement. I bought a pair Auras and the seller threw in the Aura receiver(for car only)on CL for less than 35(Auras are 50$ each on PE) bucks. What a freakin' deal. I hooked them up last Sat. and played with them a little with Fuzz's Demo BD's and these thing are fun. WOTW, Pulse, Star Wars, etc gave me a good Bass couch workout. I'm happy I got them. These will be used for my action movies from now on. Special Thanks to Rojo and pjp for the help.
Hooked up to to the Parasound Amp:

They are attached to this thin board:

No it does not rattle it's on there tight and thumps nicely:

Well put up the 100(really 92 inch and huge in my tiny apt.) screen in the afternoon yesterday and I must say it looks amazing.:yahoo: I thought that I would never own a PJ, but with Fuzz thread it made me wonder if I should get one? They have come down in price, so I thought hey why not? I found one on ebay refurb for a great price. The DVD's(Shakira) don't fare as well on a large screen(50-60 inch it looks amazing), but looks decent if you are a bit back in your chair. The SQ on the BD of course is great though. Now the Stevie Wonder BD Live In London looks AMAZING.:clapping: I moved up closer and the PQ/SQ was amazing. It shockingly just breath taking. I can't wait till my family comes over to check it out. The 3D demo from AVS that Fuzz suggested looked amazing and had me ducking, lol. I 'd never been to a 3D movies in the theater, only as a kid they had one on TV that was kinda cool, but not great. So I didn't want to waste money on it. Well guess what? I really like it. Anyways here are some pics I took yesterday:




As you can see the PQ is really nice, but of course way better in person.

I decided to get discrete pair of JBL Leviton AESS5 surround speakers for the PJ setup. Took me about an hour to setup last night. I threw on the Roy Orbison Black & White Live DVD and adjusted it to my liking and boy did the violins coming in from these tiny speakers sound nice. I placed the speakers upside down to get the tweeter closer to the ear. Incredible little speakers for the price I got them for on ebay. I'm happy.

I bought this amp SMSL SA-S3 like 2 years ago and I now just hooked it up. Well there was a reason...

Well did a trade recently so now I can do the setup I wanted.

Right Speaker with foam underneath:

My computer setup is now finito.





Found a nice player today called Music Bee. Works great after I set it up to my liking. The CD playing is one of four that I use to setup any Music/HT EQ. Desktop Background pic is British actress Susan Harrison from the 1950's.

Took awhile to hook up the PJ Mount last night, but well worth it. Now I can sit in the middle and enjoy and use the table I had it on for other uses. Big thanks to Fuzz for the hookup!

TDA7498 100W+100W 2-channel Stereo Digital Power Amplifier Board From Ebay China(Seller tomtop_shop) Bought a 24V 5A adapter($15-20) as well:


















Came upon this amp after helping someone on the forums pick out a cheap amp. Saw this on ebay and did some research on youtube and a couple of forums and settled on this one for $11.71 shipped from China! I said what the a fun project. To my surprise it's quite a capable amp and louder than my SMSL SA-S3. Dialed in 12 o' clock WHOA LOUD! Boost 1 and 2 is nice and to my ears really brings out the music. I can't believe this thing is only 11 bucks.Highly recommend getting one. The seller includes the feet, which I have not seen from others sellers and his is the cheapest too. Sanwu amps are highly regarded as well. If you buy this from a brand name with case it will cost over $100 for sure.
