I am currently using 5 Focal B400's and 2 custom made 13" Focal subs.

I listen to mostly music, as most of my time is spent on programming remotes, keypads and designing client's projects. (Architectural drawings, etc) Although I do get to watch a movie every once in a while, most of my HT auditioning is done at client's homes or at our showroom.

I want to one day start my tower project. (Focal C800, as I already own most of the components to complete the kit from previous projects)

Tom, where did you get your Anal Acoustics from? I'm looking to pick up their "Flapper 18" subwoofer. The reviews are amazing on this piece.....

"The best "coil attached to a wet paper bag sound" I ever heard" ---A. Crack, Low-End A/V review

"If you want the real explosion sound, just crank this baby up!!!" ---Home Theater without a budget

"Colon porting system.....Holy sh**!!" ---A. Cheek, Pumped up Audio

"A great "bang" for under $12, unfortunately it happened only once" ---B. Terd, Bangin Audio Review

Uhh... Some very, very, very nice stuff over here. Some specs? OK. Once we where listening to some reggae, and caught 127db at approx 50-60hz (kick drum) at the listening seat. We could still talk. (Linn turntable into a tube pre-amp that could swing 60volts, into a highly modified Moscode 600) Try that at home and see what you get. Approx. 50hz to 20khz, + or - 1.5db. System extends down to 15-18 hz in room, but is subjective and placement/room dependant. Salesmen can't stand hearing them, as they cannot sell anything else and believe that it (what they have to offer)is the best available. Their honesty goes out the door with their sales. Other than that, I can't say much.

PS. Well, a little more. Just a tease. I am not joking when I say that Bob Ludwig, for instance, would actually seriously consider giving his right nut for the chance to have these in his mastering suite. Except he would never leave his workplace. And I didn't even turn them on once today. What a shame. I am getting scared.. they are going away for bout 3-4 months soon... what will I do? (if you put a gun to my head, and said, "you have a choice.. loose the speakers, or go through heroin withdrawl". I've never gone through such, but I would have to choose the heroin withdrawl as the easier of the two. I am deadly serious on this comment)

I have NEVER heard such phase intergrety and liquidity in a speaker. You leave the room and you SWEAR it's a live band playing in the other room. I've heard them ALL, and nothing else even comes close, not by a long shot. Sonus Faber, Proac, Wilson, JM lab stuff.. I don't care. Totally different leauge and level here. So bloody different, you can't possibly imagine. Even capable of putting the best headphones to shame. And that would take some doing. Someday, you'll all get to hear them.

Basically? if you offered me the Grand Utopia's, The Wilson top speakers, or the best the Sonus Faber has to offer, or the big Dynaudio Evidence, Revel, Meridian, B&W, Dunleavey, Nova,Verity, Whatever..for $5K...or these for $25K? I'd take these without a second's hesitation.

No comparison. Different level.

I guess I'm the first/only guy with Linn speakers.

Front L/R - Keltiks (active)
Center - AV5120 (active)
Rear - Kabers (active)
Subs - 2 AV5150's

Very musical, very dynamic. Great for both music and movies.
About 70% music and 30% movies.

Hi:
Though I've been viewing this site for awhile while upgrading my main theater system, it wasn't until today that I finally registered. As such this is my first post. Hope I don't screw it up. I Hope in time, I can offer some help to others as this is a great source of info and ideas. I've been an A then A/V NUT for a number of years now. It's been a great hobby and lately a small sideline job of sorts when I try to help others get going. I try to avoid arguing with others on what's best or better since we all have our own ideas and our own ears ( and wallets) which others can't necessarily relate to.
Below is a list of spekers I've got up and running. Not necessarily the top of the line or even High End stuff as many others have. But for me, a nice mix which work well in the assorted environments I have them in.
What really makes a good system "GOOD" is finding a good ( though not necessarly the best) match which resonably fits all the variables.
The room itself, the room layout and esthetics, the planned usage/needs, the significnt other ( typically WAF) though I'm sure there are a few reversed roles out there) AND of course "THE BUDGET"
At my home I have a lot of different pieces which suite my needs or desires for where they are. So I don't have to get tired of something and sell and buy... I just go to another room.

My speakr stuff ( at least those up and running):
Some rooms have separate and dedicated Music AND Theater components ( speakers and supporting electronics). A mixture (potpourri) of technologies, which are in place, to best match the environment and usage. What works wonderfully in one room would fail in some of the others. Each environment offers it’s own signature and mood, all of which are very satisfying. After all, variety is a spice of life and one should always enjoy as much as they can in life. And if the speaker assortment/mixture seems excessive, don’t even \\ ask about the supporting electronics in the various rooms/areas or spared stored items for swapping around.

Theater 1 (T-1): (Main Theater/Family-Great Room)
Fronts- Allison IC-20’s- {Bi-amped} (upside-down and high on wall)
Sides- Allison Ones (with Allison ESW (Electronic Sub Woofer) EQ upstream the amp) (upside-down and high on wall)
Rears- Allison Threes (with Allison ESW (Electronic Sub Woofer) EQ upstream the amp) (upside-down and high on wall/corner)
Center- Aerial CC3 - {Bi-amped}
Sub(s) – 2 Velodyne ULD-18’s (front right and rear left corners)
TT’s (6 Aura BS’s in sofa controlled via dbx 120 downstream of the MC-1 sub out and upstream of NAD 916)


T-2 (Master Bed Room)
Fronts- NHT 2.5-i
Sides- NHT 1.5
Rear- NHT 1.5
Center- NHT Audio Center One
Sub- Velodyne ULD-15
TT’s (2 in the reinforced Bed frame)

T-3 (Exercise/Sitting/Media Room)
Fronts – NHT 2.1
Sides- NHT 1.1
Rear- NHT 1.1
Subs- 2 VMPS Original size ( w/ dual voice coils… both driven)
TT’s- 4-Aura BS’s in chair. Love seat, and recliner

And/or
dbx SF1500 (in rear)

MS-2: (Family/Great Room)
ESS AMT 1D

MS-3: (Exercise/Sitting/Media Room)

I have Revel Studios as front channel speakers, B&W surrounds. All are in boxes as I have moved and am waiting to have my new room built. Previously I used them for about 70% music and 30% HT. I expect that to reverse when I build my new room with front projection. I will also be looking for some new surrounds.

At the moment, the only sound we have is our Gallo Micro setup in the living room with our NEC plasma.

Well, for the time being I'm still using my 25 year old Radio Shack Nova 10's for front and Nova 8's for surround.
Hey, they sound MUCH better then my friends Bose Dinky Speaker System. I plan in the near future to go with the Ascend Acoustics Multi Channel 5.1 system. Probably August.

Make mine a BUD (Big Useful Dish)

50% music 50% HT ... leaning more towards theater these days because it is so much more FUN! Looking forward to Multichannel DVD-A!

(5) B&W N802
(4) Black Hole Subs acting as two point sources vertically stacked.
(7) Bryston 7BST monoblocks
(2) Buttkickers driven in Stereo with 2000 watts for each buttkicker.

Meridian 861 with 2 XLR output cards driving

7x Behringer Truth B2031 entry level studio monitors

via Belden 1800F/Neutrik XLR cables.

50%/50%, tendency towards film.

Speakers I wish I could own: Geithain 901 (best imaging out there), Genelec 1036A (131db peak, ouch...)

BTW: I hope that KBKs system is not only +/- 1,5db at the two ends of the scale, but also +/- 1,5 db over the "entire scale" http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif, anything else is a colored speaker.......

ss1500 sub
all driven off AVR307 B&K --CAN RUN SURROUNDS AS EITHER-OR,OR BOTH DEPENDING ON SOURCE MATERIAL...BEST OF BOTH WORLDS(DIRECT RADIATING VS.BI-POLAR)
I am very pleased with this set up , but am getting the best sub designer/builder i've ever met to build me the "death sub 2001"
Also being in the sales end of this buisness I am likely to switch on a whim just for variety!
maybe sonus/vienna .........
just remember "VOICE MATCH!"

When the Hi-Fi store goes out of buisness 'cause I buy everything on the net where will I go to hear equipment?

I have some Polks in my main HT.

Mains: RTA-8TL (MTM floorstander ~ 10 years old)
Center: CS400
Rears: RT55 (2 pair; MMT bookshelf)

I think the speaks are too bright but it could just be my room; midrange is good but bass is a bit bloated. I think I have outgrown these speakers and will build some this summer; may possibly move to separate music and HT setups.

I use the system for 65% music and 35% HT/DVD.

My current systems really suck. My HT isn't even DTS, nor DD, not even DPL(ugh), but just surround stereo. Haha, it has cheap Kenwood floorstanders with Wharfedale rears. My computer system has Sherwood S-270 bookshelf fronts and KEF C40 standmounters.

A64 2.5GHz, Chaintech VNF3-250, 2x512MB Kingmax DDR500, XFX 6800GT AGP, SB Audigy2 ZS, Seagate 250GB, SATA, Liteon 12X DVD burner, 16X DVD-ROM.

Hey - is it time for more B&W yet??
Front B&W 804 + B&W HTM2
Rear Jamo 300
Home made isobaric Sub
room is 14 X 13 feet
If I had a bigger room I'd go for Quad ESL & a nice sub, but for this size room these speakers are excellent
40% TV, 30% DVD 30% music

------------------
Its not what you do - its the way that you do it

HDCP => lots of expensive technology that never seems to work

Just got in Atlantic Tech's 350THX system. Sounds great so far, but haven't had too much chance to play with them. Wanted to get some Martin Logans, but my room is too narrow to support them unless I reduced my screen size.

2-Channel System

Sonus Faber Amati's, Spectral Pre & Power Amp, Wadia, SME10, Benz Ruby 2

Characteristics: Quick, Transparent, Musical, Soulful

5-Channel System

Left/Right - Linn AV5140s, Aktiv, 3 AV5105 PowerAmps
Center - Linn AV5120, Aktiv, 1 AV5105 PowerAmp
Surrounds - Pair of Linn AV5120, Aktiv, 2 AV 5105 PowerAmps

No sub -- don't need one with the Aktiv 5140s, they act like servo controlled woofers that go flat to 20Hz.

Characteristics: Detail, clarity, controlled punch, pace, rhythm, and timing

JhnZ33,

Got mine from a local shop called SOUND AND UNSOUND. I'm bummed though...the dealer recently went out of business. Well, after all, when you have to PAY customers to take Anal Acoustics stock off your hands, you're bound to end up with cash flow problems. Anyway, I heard the guy is doing tarot readings now.

Got to find another dealer so I can audition the Flapper 18!
However, I noted that one reviewer seemed a bit less enthusiastic than the others you mentioned:
"The sound from the Flapper 18 is ineffable, whereas I would have preferred it to be inaudible."---Clipshorn Leghorn, THE AUDIO CIRCUS.

Thanks Tom.

Let me know the minute you find a new dealer.
I want to be able to flush over, uh.... I mean rush over and pick me up a couple dozen of the flappers.

I'm looking to remodel my listening room and a pile of flappers are just the trick to get rid of that wall I want out.

Tom (trhunnicutt),

I have active Keltiks (which have superior bass performance to the av5140s) with Klouts and I have two av5150s. Tremendous improvement for both music and movies. You should at least check it out, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Kevin
