Nice!

Agreed... A picture is worth a thousand words!

We just sold one house and moved into our new/old "mid century atomic ranch". I'll post a few pics once I dig out of all the boxes. Boxes, newspaper and bubble wrap everywhere. Moving sucks!

Without Music, life would be a mistake... (FN)
There are no facts, only interpretations... (FN)

PS3, Harmon Kardon AVR-254, Harmon Kardon DVD-38, Yamaha YBA-11, Panasonic TC-55LE54, Chane A2rx-c L/C/R, Chane A1rx-c LR/RR, Rythmic Sub on the way.

I need assistance

I have ordered an Edifier s330d speaker. It has a coaxial connection, optical spdif, rca connections, aux connection. Which connection gives the best sound quality? I believe it is the optical. My other question is, I have my pc, my xbox and a bluray player all connected to my tv via their own hdmi cables. The tv has an rca out and what looks like an optical spdif out. If I connect to the speaker via the spdif out of the tv, would that be the same as connecting directly from my pc to the subwoofer box? As far as quality is concernet, seeing how the computer is connected via hdmi, as it is converted within the tv, does it keep it's integrity normally or no? Also, the speakers are connected via speaker cables. Doesn't that lower the quality anyway? Is there any point of using something of better quality like an optical cable when it is downgraded as it goes to the speaker anyway? I appreciate your help.

Looking to upgrade. Where to start?

I have :
Front - Optimus STS 800 Towers
Center- Sony SS-CR3000
Surround - Sony SS-CR3000
Sub - Sony SA-W2500
Powered by a Denon AVR-1610

I am considering upgrading. However, I am having trouble deciding the best bang for the buck. I have even looked at gutting the sub and installing a Dayton speaker and amp from Parts Express. I just don't know if it would be an improvement. The Towers have some age on them, but still sound pretty good.
Any ideas as to what my weakest link is?

Not sure what your budget is, but I just upgraded from an Onkyo 606 AVR and Paradigm 7semk3 Floorstanders to an Integra DTR 50.6AVR and Focal Aria 926s. I also have a polk center and sub that I may upgrade later. The old system served me well but the new one was a nice upgrade and sounds great. Total cost for AVR and speakers was ~ $4k.

I am looking to see if I can get an improvement for a couple hundred by replacing my surrounds or sub. That's why I was asking about sub upgrades and building/modifying my own. I understand if it isn't possible. My system doesn't sound bad. It just isn't as crisp as I would like.

Thank You for the nice compliment


The top one from the first picture was purchase here
http://www.stargatecinema.com/personalized-prints/
The one below was from a member of these forum, he use to make custom work for a donation.
I don't think he does it anymore since it was a few years ago.


The big pictures on the wall are from
http://www.fathead.com/
Their price and service is also great


The little frames are from the net, and me printing the schematic of a Star Destroyer.


I am now going to turn 52, and Star Wars was the movie that got me going "this is so Cool" way back then. I choose the name base from a book that give the history of the Chimaera that describe it was the second in the chain of command after the Super Star Destroyer and one of the few that escape after Chapter VI of the Star Wars saga.


I like the name of the Ship and thought it was appropriate to choose it since got me into this hobby and so is my father love of a good Stereo system.


Nice set-up, you got too!!!!

My humble set up: Swan Diva 6.1 for the front, Swan Diva C3 for my center, Swan Diva 4.1 for my surrounds, Swan Diva R2 for surround back and a SVS SB2000 with a REL T3 pulling Subwoofer duty.

No plans to upgrade any time soon I am very happy with the setup,the treble the 6.1s can be a little bright at times but other than that a very warm setup. before this setup I fooled around with all kinds of big box store brands such as Polk and Athena. Toyed with the idea of Martin Logan's but can't justify the price. I suppose if I could afford it I would probably like B and W all around all though I never heard them. Any way thanks for sharing everybody, it nice to hear about everyone's setup in a non confrontational manner.

2-channel system, with a brand new pair of Sonus Faber Olympica III's (paired with new Parasound Halo A21 amp and JC2 preamp). Fantastic out of the box, but even better when someone from Sumiko (arranged by the local store, Sound Xperience in Jenkintown, PA) came to optimize speaker placement (a whole process, taking about 90 minutes to complete). Fantastic bass and spot on soundstage post optimization.

Thanks for the kind words! I have heard very good things about the Aperions and considered them when I boought the swans If I remember correctly there is some kind of connection between the two brands but I may be mistaken. here are some shots of the current setup from my cell phone.
