Todays speakers are:
Surrounds: F/X 500i
Rear: Bose VCS10
Sub: Radio Shack (don't know model number) 12 inch downfiring, with 2 25watt Base Shakers
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.

Servo 15 (sub)
See signature. I listen to about 75% music and about 25% movies. I am not happy with the center channel. I'm looking for something that will match my mains.

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 :(
90% movies / 10% music
Diva 6.1 Mains
Diva C3 Center
Diva R3 Surround
Diva 2.1 Surround Back
Infinity HPS 1000 Sub
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.
Mains - LINN 5140's
Center - LINN 5120
Surrounds - LINN tukan's

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.
Main: Diva 2.1
Center: Diva C3
Surround: Diva 2.1
Sub: SVS 20-39 CS w/ Carver 2 ch. amp
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.
We need more Vandys in this thread...
Fronts: Vandersteen 1Cs
Center: Vandersteen VCC-1
Surrounds: 30 year old Sansuis (I need to replace these after I move...)
Sub: JBL PB12
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.
