Upgrade sub to a yet unknown. (This will free up an amp for rear upgrade)
Upgrade rear to Polk Audio 35i's for 7.1 surround.

I use this system to listen to music about 10% of the time.

Help, I've fallen and can't reach my remote.

Upgraded to an SVS 16-46 CS subwoofer and this thing is amazing. I am also using my Event 20/20BAS nearfield monitors for rear surrounds in a 7.1 setup, but still want to get the 35i's.

i am using B&W 600 series. i am very happy with their performance but i would like bipolar speakers for their spaciousness during movies. i have even considered wiring two pairs into 4 ohms

i would trade them for martin logans anyday. i just dread setup :(

Mains -Eminent Technology LFT-8's (Hafler 9505 bridged- 750watts to each speaker and it ain't overkill)
Center-Bohlender-Graebner 220DX(Hafler 9300 bridged- 450 watts/4ohm and it ain't either)
Rears- ESS AMT 1B's (Cinepro 600x2 - 300 watts to each)

These are all hybrid planars and they really match up well. The Bohlender-Graebner is a real gem, one of the best secrets in high-end performance centers without the outrageous price. I've bought them for as much as $700 and I call it a true bargain.

Wish I could afford a 500 watt tube monobloc for each of the Eminent Tech's mid/high ribbons! I told my wife it would save us money during the winter since the HT is in the basement-heat the whole house and sound great at the same time. Body language indicated I was SOL even if I could afford it.

Fronts: Klipsch RF7

Side Surrounds: Klipsch RS7
Rear Surrounds: Bose AM-3 (satellites only)
Sub: JBL TLX PS12
Driven by Pioneer Elite VSX-49TX
HT / Music: 95 / 5

Replacing Rear Surrounds with Klipsch in-ceiling (RCW-5,7?) but probably not until after getting DVD-Audio. 49TX can output surround channel to both side and rear surround to simulate rear corner surround placement for 5.1 pre-ins. Tried this with quadraphonic source and the positional accuracy is very good even with my unmentionable rear surrounds, probably due to room matching feature of 49TX.

Hi Guys, I thought I might add my small system to the pile.

Boston vr-30's Front and Rear
Boston Vr-12 Center
NHT subs Sw2's

Frontss are biwired w/ Audioquest and powered with a Parasound hca-2200?

Rears are powered with an old school BGW 200x2
Subs are poweed with another bgw 800x2 It can easily bottom out the NHT's
Center is a 2 parter I run the center out into a Parasound 75x2 and then into a nht amp for a center sub.

I love my system !
I would love to hear one of these stryke he-25 with my BGW amps.

My modest system is comprised of:

Fronts: Diva 6.1's (driven by Cinepro 12KSE amp)
Center: Diva C3
Surrounds : Diva R3's
Subs: Dual SV 20-39CS's with Samson S700 amp

The center and surrounds are driven by my Pionner Elite 27TX receiver for now.
Front speakers are biwired with DH-Labs wire. The rest I have IXOS in wall speaker wire.

Someday I hope to add two Thiel PowerPoints and a processor and another Cinepro amp for a 7.1 system. Maybe within a year, maybe in another life??

There are a lot of great systems here and as long as you enjoy yours, your're set.

Mike

ACI Jaguars with Titan II subs. It don't get much better than this. This is strictly a two-channel system. Absolutely superb. Have been designing my HT for a while now, probably will start seriously in 2002.

Two-Channel Forever! Anthem Amp 2 and Pre 2, Modulus 3A and Belles 150A Hotrod, SF CD-1, DH Labs Silver Sonic throughout, Tube traps in corners, ACI Jaguars with ACI Titan II subs. Family room: NAD L40 with ACI Emeralds and Force sub.
