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.

Speakers:
LCR: Behringer B212XL (3)

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.

And thank you all to post from everyone to share your systems and picc are always a big bonus on this thread.

Tekton Lore With Clear Cap Upgrade

It matters quite a bit what you drive them with. This is what i did over the last 18 months.

Setup#1 . Started off with twin Carver TFM-35's and Carver C-1 pre (amps completely reworked) with Oppo BDP-83 and Schiit Bifrost DAC, Morrow MA3 IC's and Morrow SP-3 speaker Cables. Pretty decent sound from old gear...could blow the house down...but also blow a few tweeters. Lacked detail and imaging. Sold everything but the Oppo and decided to try different setup.

Setup#2.....135w Harmon Kardon Reciever with the BDP-83. That lasted 3 weeks. No bass. Weak sounding compared to Ditched the HK

Setup #3 ....Kenwood 90 W receiver from who knows when. This actually rocked, but no imaging/spatial goodies. Kenwood out.

Setup #4 ...Crown XLS1000 with BDP-83 direct (RCA)....now were getting somewhere, but still lacked the detail and wallop of setup #1 .....Crown XLS1000 out. BDP-83 out too.

Setup #5 (final for now).....Crown XLS2500, Oppo BDP-105 direct to amp via Morrow MA5 XLR's. Morrow SP-6 speaker cables.

Setup #5 is a million miles from the other 4 setups. I credit the Oppo BDP-105 and the better Morrow Cabling. Soundstage deep wide and tall, with crazy sick imaging....almost 3 dimensional at times. Powerful bass, enough to blow the house down. Visitors to my house now blown away. The Lores have come alive. Only drawback now is they sound worse on the bad recordings.

My .02 is that the Lores will perform....but youve gotta feed em some decent stuff.

Hi, yes they are pretty rare, they where only made for the Nordic countries, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland but some have made it to the US. They where produced here in Denmark at the Dali factory. It was a collaboration between Cervin Vega and HiFi-Klubben here in Denmark.
