Here is a pic of my new gear.
Everything in the pic except for the equipment rack and its contents is new.
New gear was purchased from 2 months ago to 2 days ago.

Sharp 80"
RF7ii X 2
RC64ii
PSA XS30 X 2

I added a pic of the old setup for comparison.

Nice thanks for sharing.

Will I find La Scala, or better, to displace my La Scala fronts, before I displace my kg1, kg2 & kg3 with Heresy or better?

RED AND BLUE=MAROON!

Wow! An awesome setup, indeed! Did you run Audyssey on the Integra, yet? If so, how is your experience with the before/after SQ (Sound Quality) in your room? Just curious. Enjoy! smile.gif

I ran them setup with a tape measure and a RS spl meter for several days then ran the Audyssey setup.

End result is I did not really care for the sound after Audyssey. It basically made them sound very similar to my old B&W's without the dynamics.
I will probably play around with it some more but atm I am enjoying them sans Audyssey.

Actually if you run your system without Audyssey you are going to miss DEQ's (Dynamic EQ) loudness compensation feature which cuts in whenever you listen below 0 dB reference level. But in order to set up your system to play reference level correctly (by setting speaker and sub trims levels) you need to run Audyssey MultEQ XT. Just a thought! smile.gif

Well after reading the official "Audyssey thread FAQS" I have ran Audyssey about 6 times in the last week. I have tried changing mic positions,along with 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8 mic positions. Tried it with subs on and off etc. I still like it without Audyssey turned on.

As for Dynamic EQ I still have it turned off as well.
I usually listen at -15 to -8 and the difference just isn't that noticeable to me. At -20 to -25 I would guess it makes a much bigger difference?

With my previous front speakers I did use Audyssey, but the new Klipsch's sound better without it to me, go figure.
