In a more serious note, do you have any pictures of your set to post?
It does look like you have a nice set-up.


Ray

There's a few Newfoundlanders here. My setup is getting a little older now, while I still love it, I'm slowly updating parts of it. Only pictures I have are bad ones right now.

Getting the room ready for the new baby


Joke aside, you are wise to keep them under close supervision.
Since wall and ceiling wiring is a one shot deal.
Also glad you spend the little extra for 12awg, a few more bucks now and have the piece of mind of not thinking "what if?".


Looking forward to have your impression once everything done.

this is where we're at so far, I can't believe they charged 1k for installation though.. is that how much it goes for? I provided the wires and all, I seriously should've just dropped em in myself heh.. but the ladies didn't want me going in the attic and called these guys

my only issue was at first they didn't put the pads in the clamp when putting the bookshelfs up. i told them to put the padding as soon as I saw it, I just hope the casing on the bookshelfs didn't get damaged from being clamped directly with metal

1 G for install seem a little bit steep to me, but again, I do all my own work.


For " but the ladies didn't want me going in the attic and called these guys".
Ladies, you lucky devil


I assume this is the back of your room!?
Never mind, front with opening for the Video Display and the back, my bad.


Are you going to do Atmos since it look like you are going to have ceiling speaker?


And for catching them not putting the pads, Good on You
Good thing you were checking there work if not you were more than likely get some vibration noise.


By the way, I love the color of the room.
And one last thing, a word of advise.
I see you got hardwood floor, I would put a throw on carpet for sound wise.
Hard surface can throw havoc for sound reflection.
A cheap solution.

Sound wise, 1 was enough


Ray

I re-post these since I assume you were talking about sub


But I almost bought the SVS Ultra speakers my-self
I did weeks of research before deciding on the aperion Verus Grand series, and it was between the two.
And it was a tough choice.


Still looking for your impression when you got everything running and calibrated.

Very Nice
Also nice acoustic treatment
This is one step that lots of people omit to do and it can be as important as the equipment.


Very well done.

Beautiful setup's all. Love to look at and read about other people's creations. I got into the hobby a few years back, it has changed a couple of times since but I am pretty happy with it right now so may keep this setup for a while . I have a smaller room in the basement that is my gaming room/theater room. A lot of stuff crammed into a small space. my setup is:

All speakers are Paradigm Monitor series 7
Monitor11 fronts
Center 3
Mini Monitor surrounds
Surround 3 rear surrounds
Atom monitors front height
SUBS - SVS PB 2000, Energy ESW C10, Energy ESW C 8 x 2
Marantz SR7800 Receiver
Emotiva XPA 3 Gen II
Oppo 103D Bluray player
Sony KDL NX 810, 60" tv
Xbox One, 360, PS4,PS3, Wii U
Belkin Pure AV Power conditioner + Monster power Center

My Fiancé is not into the hobby and didn't want anything in the living room but I negotiated a small setup consisting of a Marantz NR 1504 and Energy Take Classics 5.1 with an LG 47" 3d tv and a Wii.

I don't have any pics right now but will have some soon and will repost, This addiction can get expensive really quick but it is a fun ride


Cheers

I worked for Altec-Lansing in '73-74. Probably the most fun I ever had on a job, and it's where I learned the most. I got to know John Eargle before he left for JBL (the horror!).


I have Emotova Pro Stealth 8s in front and Realistic Minimus 7s in the back. For forty years I had a pair of University (an Altec brand) E-8s, the only ones in the world since they were engineering prototypes of a model that didn't go into production.

What addiction?


In all seriously matter, is your small space part of the living room or a small space of your own?
If it is a small space of your own, the better, then you do what you want


If you look at my signature, this is my man cave and my wife enjoy it.
All decision in that room are mine to make.


The rest of the house is her
She move furniture around once every 6 weeks or so, and that fine.
The only time I step my foot down (or try) is when she is trying to save money by buying something cheap, I like quality and good looking furniture.


At the end, I got my little space, and she got hers.


If both space are share, we need pics to find an Happy medium.

Hi Ray,
The room is my little piece of geekdom It's 19' x 11' x 8', it houses all my gaming gear, home theater, and collectibles. My fiancé is pretty reasonable and anything I want to do within the confines of the room is totally up to me. I would like to make it bigger but it would mean a total overhaul of our basement including plumbing so that will be a ways off. I have some crappy phone camera pics and am waiting for Olympus to ship their TG 4 Tough camera at the end of this month to take a few good shots.


You have incredible gear, the sound must be amazing, I have never heard the Aperions but they get amazing reviews. I'll hopefully have the new camera in a week or so and will post a few pics as soon as I get it.
Cheers

We have about the same size for the room, mine is 12x18 x8.
Sound like fiancé is like my wife


Enjoy your room since it is a place to call, my own
I am in my 50's and decided to make mine around a Star Wars destroyer name the Chimaera, but I can call it, my own space.


For the pics with the new camera, make sure to quote me, so I don't miss them.


Thanks for the compliment about my set-up
Everything is sound and picture first, Look second and built around a thyme.
Thanks for taking the time to look


The aperion do sound fantastic, it is too bad they do not have more of a following wish could be attributed to "no new models for a few years", then again why fix something so good.
I was surprise of how good they sound, I got rid of the boxes within a week since they were a keeper
Mind you, the other pieces of gear do not hurt either


Looking forward to your pics!!!

Hey folks! Most of what I have in the AV room is diy, so just for fun, here goes.

Front L C R are FaitalPRO W10N8-700 + Selenium d220ti on Dayton 10" waveguides. L and R also have TC Sounds Epic 12s. LFE subs are Dayton UM15-22s. Crossovers for front 3 are done with MiniDSP 10x10, subs are handled by MiniDSP 2x4 with Charlie Laub gain stages so they've got some voltage without bouncing off 0dbfs constantly. 4 surround channels started their lives as Peavey PR-10s, but transplanted to angled enclosures and also have the Dayton 10" waveguide. The stock crossover isn't that bad with them.

DO it yourself:

Resurrected pair of Ads M15's. Company in building where I work at was throwing them out. Found rubber surrounds on dual woofers were stretched, causing voice coil to rub. Ordered four new surrounds and speakers sound magnificent.

M&K V125 sub- bought this in 1996. Recently developed a problem with buzzing and distortion. Found site on net where someone with exact sub narrowed it down to two leaky capacitors. Ordered replacements and speaker works better than new.

Sanyo 1080P PLV-Z2000: company at work received this to test and then was getting rid of it along with a Stewart Electric 80" diagnal screen. The Sanyo projector was calibrated with a Eye One Pro, that was being thrown out when another company had to vacate their leased space, and instructions from this site.

NHT center bought on eBay for $65.

NHT pair of Super Zeros bought on eBay for $80 the pair. Use these as R + L surround.

Definitive Technology BP 2X bipolar speaker used for rear surround. Bought on eBay for $50.

Denon AVR 2802 Receiver: 90 watts into 5 channels. Bought this in 1996 for $350.

Monoprice HDX-401E HDMI switch. Think I paid $30.

Turn everything on and off with a legacy Harmony 700 remote control.

Poor mans home theatre in my 20' x 35' basement.

After a lifetime of waiting I finally got a few sweet treats in the 'mail' today.

Monitor Audio Gold C350 centre and 2 pairs of Gold 100s

The blu ray case is for size comparison againat the beast of a centre at 18.9kg.

I have a 15" Monitor Audio gold sub coming in the next few weeks, the I'll be getting the floorstanders the Gold 300 and moving the front surrounds to the rear, then it's the last sub, a few power amps and I'm 100% done for the next 2-3 decades.

Hi guys!

A newbie chiming in!

Only recently have I started taking this AV thing seriously but have played around with hifi stuff but not very seriously.

In the TV room:
Wharfedale Diamond 9.1
SVS PB-1000
Also planning on buying a pair of LS-50's to replace the Wharfedale's very soon. A single LS-50 for the center channel some time after that.

In the listening room:
Sonic Frontiers SFL-1 + Sansui B-2301
Image (New Zealand brand) Studio Reference
Linn Kaber/LS-500
Tannoy GRF Memory - Currently sitting in my late father's office. Planning on bringing these home in a few months.

Going to be a steep learning curve and lots of reading to do.
My wallet hates me already
