Thanks to the great advice on this forum I have the following 5.1 setup:
  • Front - Ascend CBM-170SE
  • Center - Ascend CMT-340SE Center (waiting on delivery)
  • Surround - Ascend HTM-200s
  • Sub - Onix Rocket UFW-10
  • Receiver - Denon AVR-1602

I think its a reasonable upgrade from my college Klipsch ProMedia setup :P

SO...1st post!!

HT & Music:
Wharfedale Diamond 8.3 fronts
Wharfedale Diamond 8 Centre
Wharfedale Diamond 8.2 surround
Wharfedale PowerCube 12 sub

An AMAZING center speaker...it really makes up for what the 8.3's lack in 2-channel performance (they struggle with low-mids & lows)
But I can't say enough about the performance of this Center!

I never realised how small a man could feel after joining an audiophile forum. I felt pretty swell about my system until I saw what everyone else has.

I had the logitech z-5300's for a couple years due to the tight finances of college. Now I have a real home theater.
Receiver - Onkyo 504 - $90 new from ebay
Front speakers - Infinity Beta 50's - $135ea. shipped, new from ebay
Rear Speakers - Infinity Beta 20's $110pr. new from retailer going out of business
Center Channel - Infinity Beta C250 $120 new from etailer

I guess that comes to $590 total

I am still looking to buy another pair of beta 20's and a subwoofer for real cheap but these kind of deals don't happen every day, till then, I have to save $$$ cuz I got about 7 more years of school before I'm done!

Mains - NHT VT-2
Center - NHT VS-2
Surrounds - NHT Absolute Zeros

No subwoofer since I am happy with the bass from the VT-2s and no real place to put one.

I am now the owner of two Advent Heritage floor standing speakers with a single tweeter and what looks to be 2 6" woofers. They are rectangular with rounded corners, a brown finish, and black covering. No ports.

Any ideas what exatly these are or how good they are? They pre-date the modern internet (think early 1990's).

'old' set up, now in the spare bedroom with that bike thing I almost never ride:
a/d/s/ L990 with a Denon 1025r receiver.

'new' set up for tv viewing, gets way too much use!:
Yamaha YSP-1000 with an SVS pb-10 subwoofer,
much nicer than I ever expected it to be!

Hi. I love my Energy C-5 mains, C-C3 center, e:XL-R surrounds and S10.2 sub run with an HK AVR-520 matched with a Sony 50 inch A-10. I can finally truly hear the bells when they ring, feel the arrows as they whip by and grab for safety when the earthquake hits. Best of all the stereo music is awesome off of the C-5's. I am finally a happy camper.
