I just bought my house in April, so I'm starting small and will move around equipment/upgrade in a few years.

There's the living room, REC room, and basement home theater.

In the Living Room, my receiver is an RCA piece of junk I got from Target back before I was in college (whole 5.1 system). It has a passive sub with it as well. The speakers are useless, so they're in a box somewhere. Fronts are Pioneer SP-FS52s, center is a Pioneer SP-C22 (coming in on Friday), and the rears are old garbage KLHs that will be replaced with the BS22s once they go on sale again. Surprisingly, it doesn't sound half bad...I added a Sony SA-W2500, since I got it for cheap, and with that and the stock RCA sub, it does the job well enough for now. I'll probably upgrade the receiver within the next year...but the speakers are high enough quality to keep me happy for a while. Mostly casual TV watching and music listening in this room.


Fortunately the REC room had speakers installed in the ceiling already. They're garbage, but good enough for now...no clue what brand/model...not worth looking at anyway. They're being powered by an Onkyo HT R510. Typically just plug my phone in for some tunes while shooting pool.


The movie room is set up with 7.1. All 7 speakers built into the wall...no clue what brand/model, but they sound excellent for action movies and mediocre-to-good for listening to music. The sub is an old powered Kenwood that I got for free...it's loud as hell...never turned it up past the halfway point. I can't remember the model, but I popped a Yamaha RX-V377 (I know, only 5.1 capable :P). This system is the best sounding (still low balls compared to some of the stuff here), and has more power than I could ever use.


That's about it. Look forward to learning more about this stuff and spending my hard-earned money.


A quick pic of the Living room (has been re-arranged a hair since...( OCD is killing me on the non-matched subs :X )

Hi all - not sure if I should start a new thread for this - We're "de-cluttering" to ready our house for sale, and I'm afraid my beloved but bulky 1984-ish speakers have to go. eBay only has one pair in "sold" history, for $100 - It would probably cost more than that to ship them. Any feedback here before I give or throw them away? (Or better place to post this?)

Thanks,
CC

Smile Home Theater Speakers

I just noticed this thread, I have the JBL SCS 180.6S 6.1 surround speakers w/sub. They were a budget system when I purchased them several years ago and haven't given me any problems to date.

Talking My new Ascends sound very nice

I just got my new Ascend CMT-340SE's for front right, left and center replacing Infinity Primus P363 towers and P351 center. I am also using P163's for front height speakers and Fluance Bi-polar surrounds in the back with 2 subs. I really like the way the Ascends's sound and will eventually go with more Ascends for the height speakers and keep the Fluance's for the back. I run them with a Marantz SR5007 and it all seems to blend well.
The room is 26'x26'.

I have an 11.4 channel setup :

1 Denon 3805
1 Denon 4810
9 Jamo D7 LCRs run by 4810
2 Jamo D7 LCRs run by 3805
Three Jamo D7 SUBs hooked to 4810
One Jamo D7 SUB hooked to 3805

The 4810 has an 11.1 channel mode in the settings. It is used to drive an external amp in two channels such as the 3805 connected to it.

Just noticed this topic so I thought I would chime in. My wife this past weekend picked me up 2 Sony tower speakers, SS-MF315's and they pack one hell of a punch! They are the start of a speaker upgrade. The rest of my speakers and sub are all Pioneer powered by my Pioneer AVR. Like I said I am in the process of replacing them all and the 2 Sony towers are just the start.

My speakers

I just bought a pair of Definitive Technology BP8060s, and they are breathtaking. They replaced a pair of DCM Time Frame 600s from the 90's. I thought they were pretty good, but the Deftechs are much better. Voices are clear as a bell, you can hear air around the individual instruments, and the bass is perfect.
I'm using the same Infinity Beta 360 center and Polk bipole surrounds I got a few years ago, and it's working for me so far.

Well here you are, still a mess from the move and not complete but all here:
BP-2000's and C/L/R 2300, pulled the BP-2's to paint and the gf's SM-45's are sitting on top of them until I can get her system together.(and those aren't LP's lower right)
BP-10's for the surr & rears, only one sub for now, the other is still packed away.

Oh, picked up these this weekend from Craigslist, only $225, BP-20's for the living room.

Still looking for a pair of BP-8's at a good price to add for my wides, and that'll be it for a while.
Need to get a new stand for the TV and get the screen mounted, I'll post pics when everything is actually done too.

I've had 3 sierra 2's lcr for the last 5 days. I moved my big swan diva 6.1's to surround, and an old pair of lynnfield vr 30's to the back. I have a yamaha down firing sub, and was going to replace it with an lv12r that I just recieved. I wasn't prepared for how big that sub was going to be. even at low volumes it's too much for my apartment. The Yamaha doesn't go near as low so I'm using it for the time being. I am actually shocked at how much bass these little sierra's put out. I kept turning down the volume on the yamaha sub to reduce the amount of bass, but found that the bass wasn't coming from the sub, but the sierra's. These are superior to the diva's by a mile. They have a huge soundstage, and they are so open, and clear. They absolutely live up to the hype. Sitting in the center of these speakers in multi channel stereo is amazing. I'm running these though an emotiva upa 5 into a sherwood r 972. Unless I can find a firmware update to correct what I'm assuming are hdmi hand shake issues I'm going to have to replace the r 972. It's getting progressively worse.

Nice room with acoustic threatment
Your front set set-up is very similar to mine.
One sub on each side between the mains and the center.
The only exception is my subs are closer to the center since my room is not as wide.
Are these sub SVS PB13 Ultra?

You can view my pics on page 111 and 113.
Your room as a nice clean look and for mine I decided to have a Star Wars look since it is name CHIMAERA THEATER.
Name after a Star Destroyer (the second one in command after the Super Star Destroyer in episode 6).

Currently have Angstrom Modular 4's as the mains, Modular 2's for the rears, Modular 6 center and the Modular 10 sub. I swear I'm the only person that has these speakers haha. Which is kind of surprising as they are amazing for the price. Loved the sound quite a bit more than anything in the $1000-$2000 from the usuals (Paradigm, B&W etc.). They are Canadian and have gone more towards in-walls and such so maybe that's why. Next speakers will probably be a set of M-Lores

Yup, still watch them too, most of them were special orders at the time and are in DTS.

The stack on the left are all Marantz cc-870's, you can daisy chain 8 of them so I'm only 1 shy.

All the racks are just temp. from the old house, new custom stuff will follow once everything is settled from the move and my workshop gets put in working order.

The subs are PB 12 Plus's. I have them with 1 port closed or whatever configuration for tuning to 20 HTZ. I find that I like that better then all ports open or closed. If your subs are closer to the center you might try to tow them out a tad to reflect bass off the walls if your looking for more of the room shaking bass, or put them in the corners outside the mains and corner load. I have tried that but wasn't happy with tower placement. I have my subs set to -18DB on the back and then turned to about -3DB on the Marantz. I just watched Pacific Rim again with a buddy of mine and it was definitely a good time. I know its not a top of the line setup, but its no slouch either. The projector is a Epson 6030UB. As I've said before, I am quite content. I think I would have to spend some coin to get a very noticeable improvement in all aspects. I have considered adding 2 more ADP's but not sure on placement, any thoughts anyone? I was thinking on the front wall for heights, or the back wall for surrounds. Its conceivable that I might add ceilings for Atmos, but I want to wait for content, and to be able to demo it first. With 5.2 and playing on the louder side for the action flicks, its already an engaging experience.

Not too many people still use them
I got about an hundred of them but my top of the line Yamaha player that could play both side without flipping the disk as been collecting dust for years. The only thing my google page found about those Marantz cc-870's is a 100 CD player.

You have that many of them!?

I have tried that but wasn't happy with tower placement. I have my subs set to -18DB on the back and then turned to about -3DB on the Marantz. I just watched Pacific Rim again with a buddy of mine and it was definitely a good time. I know its not a top of the line setup, but its no slouch either. The projector is a Epson 6030UB. As I've said before, I am quite content. I think I would have to spend some coin to get a very noticeable improvement in all aspects. I have considered adding 2 more ADP's but not sure on placement, any thoughts anyone? I was thinking on the front wall for heights, or the back wall for surrounds. Its conceivable that I might add ceilings for Atmos, but I want to wait for content, and to be able to demo it first. With 5.2 and playing on the louder side for the action flicks, its already an engaging experience.
My PB13 are also tune at 20 and that's the way I like it better for sound.
Vibrations wise, my room is heavy carpet over concrete.
So I use a couple of Buttkickers for the main chairs

You have that many of them!?

As far as the L.D's my Marantz LV-520 is still going strong, it doesn't require a flip either.
I know you can't really see it in those pictures, but sitting on top is a Marantz/Philips RC-5000 that still works also, just needs to be reprogrammed.

Yup, that's them, 100 disc cd jukebox is what they called them, I have 7 of the possible 8.

I love my old gear.

And it looks like I'm going to skip adding the wides, something apparently happened to my Yaqin MC-100 during the move and it's not working (not a real shocker considering it is, what it is) so, considering the B-2000's have a pretty good soundstage anyway I've decided to take advantage of a couple of the features of the SC-1522-K, it will allow me to run a 2 zone setup while still keeping 9.2 w/ heights in the main room. Basically instead of 9.2 in one room with both heights and wides (receiver processes whether to send the signal to either heights or wides depending on the source material) it will allow me to run 2 zones, A zone will be 9.2 w/ heights only when B zone is off, or 7.2 when B zone is on, this will allow me to use the wides amps for the BP-20's in the living room, since we'll seldom use both at the same time this should work out just fine. And with the ability to use the wifi app for receiver control I won't need an IR repeater to control the B zone, and I still have my tube buffer if I want to soften the sound for music in either zone. Depending on how it actually sounds, I may just leave it that way.

Lol, if I like it this way I may find a pair of BPX's and swap them out for the BP-2's, that way I can add them in the master bedroom to go 7.1 in there....he'll, why not..., shouldn't everyone have 7.1 in there bedroom....lol
