Nothing special here.

Four Paradigm Reference Studio 20's (the old square box ones) and the matching center. Have a set of DCM TF-1000 and TF-400 I'm debating putting into TV duty, but the 1000's are kinda big.

Stereo speakers I've got are another story, too many. Using some old 6x9 Toby's right now. Last month it was DCM Time Windows.

Cambridge Audio 752BD
Emotiva XPA-1 X2
Emotiva XPA-3
Legacy Audio Signature se
Legacy Audio Silver Screen hd
Legacy Audio Studio hd
SVS PC-13 Ultra

The SVS is in sealed mode pressed up against the chair so it kind of acts as a tactile transducer as well, giving the sensation of having more bass without the extra SPL, the bass is nice and tight too, overall a better improvement than where I used to have it in the rear corner in 16hz mode.
The Cambridge is a nice sounding unit too, in my opinion a better player for music than the Oppo BDP93-NXE I used to have, a warm but still detailed sound with smooth mids and highs, the Legacy's would have to be the best purchases I've ever made, really really nice sounding speakers, a big improvement over my previous speakers, Paradigm Studio 100's and Jamo C809's.
Going direct into the power amps made a big difference too, and it saved me money, it's quite rare in the hifi world when you can get a big improvement in sound without spending any money.

I bet it sounds amazing, but those speakers with that tv is a little like dropping a porsche turbo engine into a ford pinto.

Hey guys, it's my first set up so it's not too crazy yet. I don't own my own place yet but I will soon & when I do I'll make a dedicated "theater room"

Speakers

-Energy Connoisseur C7 floor standing, Left & Right
-Energy Connoisseur C-C1, Center
-Energy CR-3, Rear Surrounds
Subwoofer
-SVS PB12-NSD
AVR
-Pioneer Elite SC-79
TV & Players
-Samsung 64" 550 3D, TV
-Sony PS4, Games
-Samsung BDP-5100, Blu-Ray
-Monster HTS2600, Surge Protection

I just got the Elite the other day and I LOVE it. Shortly I'll be adding some GoldenEar SuperSat3 speakers for the side surrounds for 7.1 & I also have an Emotiva UPA-200 that I bought a while ago that I'll be putting in my garage so I can listen to tunes when I work on my Subaru haha. I would also like a second sub woofer eventually that would be awesome.

Haha, it does look a bit like that in the picture, but when I'm in the chair it's fine, it's a 42" TV, and I sit about 2.3 meters away form it, so I wouldn't want to go any bigger.

I have more subs I can run, but I can't at the moment due to being in an apartment.

Are you sure?
I sit from around 3 meters (10ft to be exact), with
a front screen of 114" and wish I could go bigger!

I mostly listen to 2 channel music and watch sports, so timbre matching for my main system was not important. I do have a kids TV game room with 5 matching speakers($800 each) and a SVS sub but it's sound quality is a joke compared to my main system.

Mains: Magnepan 1.7
center: pioneer elite 571 in wall
Rears: Emotiva UAC-8.2
Subs: 2- SVS sb-2000

Damn, that must almost be like watching on an Imax screen, 42" is plenty big enough for me.

I went with the Pioneer Andrew Jones complete setup-
SP-FS52'S in the front, with SP-C22 center. Sub is the SW-8MK2 and rear surrounds are the bookshelf SP-BS22-LR.


Partnered with a Yamaha HTR-3066.

Aerial Acoustics here...

I own Aerial Acoustics speakers....front(L and R),center and surrounds(L and R) with Velodyne Subwoofer...my complete home theatre also consists of Sony 4K 65 inch 850A television,Lexicon MC12 (music/cinema) high end processor with Sunfire 5 channel 500 watt amp. To complete my home theatre I have an older Sony Blu Ray DVD player(which I plan to upgarde to likley an Oppo) and I have the new Sony FMPX10 4K media player just released this month. Cables consist of a combination of Audio Quest,and Monster.

I live in NYC and have visited Aerial Acoustics in person in Mass. and had many great conversations with owner/designer. Very nice man.
