Front - Snell Acoustics Type C w/Hafler DH-500K amp
Center - Snell Acoustics CR.5
Sub - Hsu Research TN-1220 w/Hsu Research 500 watt amp
Rear - Polk Audio RC 55i

The Snell Type C speakers are not the original design. After destroying 5 tweeters and having them replaced by Snell, Snell said they could no longer send replacements. I worked out a deal to send the speakers back and have the Type C II tweeters added and have a new crossover built. These have been working fine ever since. The woofers finally gave out a few years ago, and Snell reconed one woofer and replaced the other woofer. Cabinets and grill cloth are showing some wear, but they still sound great. Must be 18 years old by now.

I am amazed to see that some people have more speakers in their home than your average Tweeter God, these folks must be living either in Villas or Ranches.

SURROUNDS: NONE YET
SUBWOOFER: NONE YET
RECEIVER: Harman Kardon AVR230
AMP: NONE YET

Still in the process of building my system. Will probably end up with LSi9s for rears and build my own subwoofer. Looking at the Outlaw 7100 to power everything. Not bad for a college kid, eh?

I always like seeing you pop into a thread John. It reminds me that I'm not the only person who enjoys Infinity on the forum. I see the Hsu sub in your list. I'm curious, was the Intermezzo sub not up to snuff compared with the rest of the line?
