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 )

Genesis 44's

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.

Isn't anyone posting pictures in this thread any more? If there are not pictures it just isn't happening. I'd love to see pics of those Def Techs!
