I'm using Ohm Acoustics:


Fronts: Walsh 2000's
Front Heights: Walsh 2000 satellite Omni's
Center: Custom Micro Walsh Center curved.
Rear Surrounds: Walsh Super 2000 Omni's
Sub Woofer


I have a small-medium sized living room used as a home theater and for music. The Ohm's are incredible but a little pricey. You can go to their web site and see some of the deals where you can get them a little cheaper. You have to hear them to really appreciate them.

I have a mishmosh array of speakers going on at the moment. I'll soon upgrade them, but this is what I have at the moment:

Infinity Primus P363s (front)
JBL Loft 20 Center Channel
Onkyo SKH-410 Atmos speakers (getting rid of these soon, they were free with my receiver, getting replaced by either Polks or Infinitys)
Polk T15 rear surrounds
Infinity Reference 2000.6 which act as stands for the Polks

Hi, I'm sigpig, and I'm an AVS noob.

I have two setups, one in the living room, and the other in the basement.
The living room has a 46" Insignia LCD TV, a Samsung BD-P2500, Apple TV2, a PVR from our cable company, a Yamaha DSP-3000 (with wired Yamaha SW) to make all the stuff sound nice, and a Logitech Harmony One to make everything work together nicely.

The basement, however, gets the better stuff <evil grin>.

We have a (better) 55" Insignia LED LCD TV (pretty much Samsung under a different name), an HD cable box, a Western Digital Live TV media streamer (with 2TB HDD),a Samsung BD-P1600, and a Pioneer Elite SC-61 to drive the following speakers:
Post Audio DM-16 fronts (more on these below);
PSB Alpha One Front Heights;
Goldenear ForceField 3 1kW Subwoofer;
Sinclair Audio Sculptura Ci Centre (Need Advice!!!); and
Bose 201 Mk V Rear Surrounds (Real. Bose. Direct/Reflecting. Speakers).

The Post Audio DM-16s are monsters. They have 2 honkin' 12" woofers, a 5" mid-range, and a 1" tweeter. The info sticker tells me the following:
Operative power range: 10-300 Watts
Recommended Amp power: 10-170 Watts RMS
Frequency response: 28Hz - 20kHz
Crossover: 2kHz and 5kHz
Efficiency: 100dB
8 Ohms

What I would REALLY appreciate is some advice on a centre-channel speaker that would do justice to both the SC-61 and DM-16s, since a) the AVR is such a great piece of technology (especially for the deal I got), and b) I need a centre-channel that would provide the power, wide sound-stage, and, most of all, the CLARITY that is lacking in the Sculptura.

I have given the following speakers considerable thought, and ALMOST purchased the most expensive one (but held back due to some high-pressured sales tactics):

Totem Tribe 3 (demo sale, nearly 1/2 price);
Goldernear Supersat 60;
B&W HTM61 S2;
Paradigm Centre 3;
Paradigm Milennia 20; and
Totem Dreamcatcher Centre.

As you can see, I'm talking about somewhat serious speakers, not what you'd get at your local big box store. Being in Canada also has it's limitations, as we have limited delivery options from the USA. Any and all advice is welcome, especially if there is a speaker I haven't thought of yet. Of course, the best centre is another DM-16, but those are hard to find.

Forgot to mention near-field and headphones:
Bose Companion 3 for my gaming PC (won them at a stag);
Sennheiser HD 201 headphones (for when the wife doesn't want to hear me killing Orcs);
House of Marley Exodus on-ear headphones (laptop/iPod).

Darth Ray (love your setup) - I will post pics of my stuff when I have the posting privileges. With this post, I will have 3/5 needed...

Here goes:

Front Left/Right Speakers - MartinLogan Vantage
Center Speaker - MartinLogan Stage
Rear Speakers - MartinLogan EM-FX2
Subwoofer - MartinLogan Depth i

Theater room is under construction. The plan is to keep the Vantage upstairs as a main stereo speakers, and to do a Martin Logan Motion setup in the theater room.

My first foray into getting a good audio system. Starting with just a 2.1 system and will build from there.


Klipsch RB-61 ii's are arriving tomorrow.
SVS SB12-NSD is already here.


Looking forward to getting them plugged up

I'm always changing things around, and am more into vintage speakers:

Fronts: Onix Rockets RS750 sig
Center: paradigm CC-170
Surrounds: paradigm ADPs
Rears: M&K Satellites
Sub: A "horrible" old M&K Goliath. Next on the list to upgrade

I love the rockets!
