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,


Finally got the camera but I'm not much of a photographer. This is my first post here with pictures so not sure how this is going to turn outRay

Mains are KEF Reference 107/2s, center is a KEF R600C, surrounds are KEF Reference 102s, rears a KEF 301s, subs are Velodyne HGS-15s managed by an SMS-1. This setup serves for both HT and music.

Any pics?


KEF name come out quit often, but I have no knowledge about them
On the other hand, I do own an SMS-1.


A very nice piece of gear, you can do a lot with this


In my case, since Audyssey came along and now own the XT32 version.
I had no longer any use for it
Then came the idea of why not using it a volume control for my Buttkickers , instead of selling it for ? in my part of the country $25, just like an Audio/processor with balance out-put where some folk offer $100, This one is collecting dust instead of going to someone who does not appreciate audio.


Sorry if sounded like a rant, what I meant, you have some nice serious older gears and should post some pics

Sorry, I haven't taken any photos. Analog stereo sources are an Ayre C5xeMP disc player and Thorens TD124 with SME III arm and Ortofon 30H cartridge through a Parasound JC-3 phono stage to a JC-2 BP preamp. Digital MCH sources are Oppo BDP-105 and Sony XA5400ES disc players through a Cary Cinema 12. The current amps are Proceed HPA-3 and HPA-2, but a pair of JC-1 amps will replace the front LR channels of the HPA-3. The KEF 107/2s are full range speakers with usable LF extension to 20 Hz, and for stereo are used without the subs. A DirecTV Genie HD-DVR connects through the Oppo to the Cary for audio and direct from the Oppo to a Sony VPL VW-50 projecting onto a 100" Stewart Ultra Matt screen.

Hi all,

I'm downsizing and have to part with an old pair of Genesis 44's - any opinions on whether they're worth trying to sell?

Thanks,

CC

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

This an impressive list of nice equipment
This demand some pics


Unless you are like me on a computer, I use to be able to but no longer able to since AVS change the format and have to use a URL instead of downloading straight from your computer.

For just a little bit longer I will have

Fronts MB Quart QLS-1030's

Rears MB Quart QLS-830's

Center MB Quart Q-line forget the model

Subs 2-Velodyne SPL-1200's

Pre-Amp Parasound AVC-2500

Amp Parasound 1205A

TV-Mitsubishi WS73811

But it is all going away and the room it is in is getting stripped to the studs and refloored and re sheetrocked and have to(don't really need to but want to) get new speakers and tv.

Just finished piecing together my first serious speaker system. Hopefully I'll be happy with it for a very long time. It's a slightly mismatched Paradigm set up but sounds coherent.

Fonts: Monitor 11 v6
Center: CC 390 v5
Rears: Monitor 9 v5
Receiver: Marantz SR 5005

Sub to be added once I free myself to from the condo.

I personally find HSU bookshelf speakers to be a grea bang for the buck along with a HSU sub it sounds great.

Not sure whether I've posted in this section before but, in any case, I just replaced my Polk Audio Monitors with (front) Martin Logan Motion 20, (centre) Polk Audio LSiM 704c, (surround) DefTech SM55, (rear surround) Paradigm SE7.

Front presence is taken care of by a pair of SoundStage 3D20s and LFE by SoundStage LF500 and Mirage S10.

At present, in the living room
Front a pair of bi-wired JBL SVA 1600 , center JBL S-Center, Rear another pair of JBL SVA-1600 and a pair of JBL S-210, subwoofer one JBLpro 4645C and one Jbl pro 4641.
When I end up taking the set up to the basement ( after some work )I am planning for a trio of JBL Pro 4722, a apir of jbl pro 5749 ( as subwoofer) along with six jbl 8350 ( surrounds) along with the jbl 4645C and jbl 4641, all will be powered by Crown DSI series amplifiers. Other speakers will remain where these are at present.

Much to my surprise, the Parasound JC-1 made a big difference. With the first SACD I played after installation, Bill Evans Waltz for Debby, I noticed more bass detail, but when I played the BSO/Munch SACD of the Saint-Seans 3rd symphony, the pedal notes of the pipe organ poured out with an authority I had never heard. The combination of the JC-2 BP preamp and JC-1 amps driving the 107/2s yields a sound that is transparent, perhaps just a bit warm, and very extended with great detail and imaging. I expect to install a third JC-1 next week to drive the KEF R600C center speaker.

Four 18" Dayton Ultimax subs mounted magnet-out in 4ft^3 sealed boxes.
The magnet-out mounting add box volume and provides better cooling of the motor.

The 18" woofer has 1219cm^2 area and linear xmax of 22mm. This is capable of 99db at 16Hz and 1m into free space. Add 6db for half space, add 12db from four of them working together, subtract 6db for being 2m away and you get 111db.

The 113db spec on the KRK seems high but dropping it by 3db for RMS instead of peak and then by 10db for being 3m away and add 6db for the pair on the center channel gives 106db and if the LF and Rf are helping too that gives 112db.

So far we are very happy with this set up. The main channel dynamic range and clarity is better than what we hear at the local IMAX and the bass is much deeper with greater impact than the IMAX ported subs.

Currently this is in a 19x28 garage with kraft paper faced insulation and cement floor. I just bought a house and am starting a custom room build in the 24x40 basement.

Very nice! Have not heard OHM speakers since the early 90's, didn't realize they were still in business.

Yep they are still in business but they only sell online via their web site. www.ohmspeaker.com
Check it out!


Also they are still maintaining most of their existing speakers from about 30 years ago to present. I had a pair of Walsh-2s from the 80's upgraded to Super 2000 Omni's for my surrounds. Now I have all Walsh 2000 in an Atmos setup and all I can say is that it's Awesome!

Strictly stereo setup, no home theater.

Main speakers: Dynaudio Focus 340 (traded Paradigm Studio 60's in for these)
Home office computer: Paradigm Signature S1
Bedroom: Paradigm Atom
Extra: Neat Iota
Unfinished project: Boston Acoustics A150 (1980's vintage, need to replace woofer surrounds)

I rotate the roles of the 3 bookshelf speakers for variety. There are a number of other interesting models I wouldn't mind owning, but am restraining myself with the knowledge I already have at least one pair more than I really need. It sure is fun to consider, though!

Well, heck. In 8 years on AVS I've not seen this thread, nor listed my menagerie anywhere. So here you go:

Office: Aerial 7Bs (computer speaker overkill ).
Bedroom: Nates Audio T5s, Aperion Bravus 10D sub.
Garage: Aperion Audio Zonas.
Patio: Yamaha All-Weather NS AW392s.
Living Room: Philharmonic Audio Phil 2 mains; JBL E38 surrounds/center with Dennis Murphy mods; ACI LX rears; Aperion Intimus 4B front heights; dual SVS PB12+s.

See...a menagerie. I like all of these speakers for different reasons. The missus didn't mind so I kept 'em.

MARGARITAS,
they're not just for breakfast anymore.
