In music system: The original Quad ESLs circa 1957 powered by Craftsmen tube (6L6) monoblocks circa 1952. But my musical tastes are very modern and we were listening to experimental guitarist Derek Bailey last night. What can I say? The midrange by which all others are to be measured.

Ken Kessler has a new book out about Quad: http://www.avexpo.co.uk/content/visi...ook_story.html

In HT system: Magnaplanar MG 1s, unfused and modified, circa 1977, in stereo. I know I'm missing surround info, but the ambient detail from the Maggies is so good, it's like being immersed. Maybe I'll get arround to adding surround speakers and run phantom center. Any suggestions for rear speakers to match these old Maggies?

Recording system: Spendor S3/5 minimonitors.

My sub is old and probably the next to be replaced but it has been very reliable and fills the lows very well though the KLF-20's help out in that department. Just picked up the RB-5II's today on closeout at $400 for the pair, last pair at that, couldn't pass that up!!! 7.1 here I come!!!

My first posting about my very first HT speaker system...

Monitor Audio Silver S8 (front)
Monitor Audio Silver S-LCR (center)
Monitor Audio SFX (surround)
Yamaha YST-SW40 (subwoofer)

I took the sub from my old compact stereo setup and don't even use it when I listen to music. That'll be the first item to be replaced--probably by Hsu or SVS--as soon as my wife agrees.

Just bought my first HT system in July 2003 and loving it!!

BTW, it will be much better if all of us listed our equipment in our profile. Let's take 5 minutes and do it!

I've found these JBL's on Ebay for between $250 - 500 per speaker
used. They are $949 each new.
Since they are studio monitors - there is very little competition
for them, as most people don't know what they are. They are
THX certified, and have a ruler flat frequency response, and
great dynamic range.

JBL LSR-32 Front L&R , Center, Surround L&R
JBL LSR-28P Rear surround L&R

Velodyne 1500 LFE

I know what they are. Unusual to be combining active speakers (LSR28P) with externally powered (LSR(32).

I wish I had bid on them myself...

my cheapo system:

Yamaha RXV396
B&W DM601 S1 (fronts)
B&W DM110 (rears)
Paradigm CC150
Yamaha YSTSW205

it sounds good though, I cant turn it too high or parents start to complain.


the sub is the weakspot, on deep bass in movies it bottoms out. its fine for music though.

Polk RTi28 mains
Polk CSi30 center
Polk FXi30 surrounds
Velodyne CHT-10 subwoofer
All run by an HK 225

It's not much, but I'm a poor married college student trying to get by on a very limited income, so for me it's just plain sweet. I'm saving up for a 2-channel system with a NAD 320BEE and Vandersteen 1C speakers.

Infinity Overture 2 Fronts
Infinity CC3 Center
Infinity Overture 1 Rears

All purchased new for $1100, which was a steal! Now I'm looking into getting some Infinity Prelude fronts and center, which will be hooked up to a HK AVR525. I think I'm #2 on this thread with Infinity speakers LoL.

That will end soon enough.

All custom here. All prototype, unique, one of a kind. etc. new designs, construction techniques, new acoustical-mechanical design techniques, new approaches, etc. All new, all different... Skanning, Scan-speak, Morel, Dynaudio, and etc, drivers. Stereo only, no surround. Can't be bothered. We just re-designed the very idea of driver mounting to a much higher level of mechanical integrety, and all our drivers have to be re-designed. Very expensive. ouch. But it works, which is more than I can say for standard driver mounting systems.
