Hello, I just replaced my Wharfedale Diamond II's, Opal center, and crappy Yamaha sub with:

2 HSU HB-1's
1 HSU HC-1
1 VTF-1

I'm very happy.

My current setup is Athena's all the way around. F1, B2, C1, and the AS-P400. All that for less than $1K well over a year ago, I'm very happy with them.

I am so happy with my panny 57 that I just bought a second one. Hooking it up to extra pair of Ascends 170's SE (B's). Have about 200$ in CD's in the past weeks. Very fun hobby but tough on the pocketbook for sure! Now for that second sub...

New poster old system:

L/R - B&W 601 (s1!)
Center - B&W CC6
Surround - Paradigm Atom

Thinking of ditching the Atoms for dipoles or upgrading to 603s in the front and moving the 601's to the surround position.

Well, I just ordered new speakers so I thought I'd repost.

The Snell K.5,CC-1, Paradigm Atom mis-matched system is going out. On the way in is a set of 3 Paradigm Millenia 20's (LCR) and a pair of Def Tech Gems for the surrounds. For now I'll keep the old Paradigm PS1000 sub as it still rocks to house.

Rega R3 | Wharfedale Evo-Centre | Wharfedale Evo-DFS Bi-Polar Surround

Rega R3 is great for my studio, front driven so I can put it against the wall, woofer on the side. Unfotunately it doesn't quite match the timbre of the Wharfedale Evo Center. Waiting 'til I move to bigger space to upgrade to something like Opus 2, get a matching center and keep the surrounds.

I have Boston vrb mains and Boston vrc center. I am pleased with the Boston sound, but would like to improve on my jbl e250 sub. Not happy with jbl.
I have a fairly small room (12 X 15). I have narrowed my choices to svs, outlaw, and hsu.

I would appreciate any info on those three speakers.

Thanks, first post on this forum.....

I have Quad 22L speakers for fronts. Absolutely love them. Moved my PSB Stratus Minis to the rear. I think PSBs represent world-class value. My subwoofer is an Energy 10.2.

I have a set of Logitech Z5500 attached to my Plasma HDTV and HD Satellite. My old JBL L100's were attached an working fine until last week when one passed away after 31 years of service. I'm looking for a new set of speakers to tyake advantage of the new Pioneer VSX84TXSi Receiver. The Plasma HDTV is also a Pioneer. The Logitech surround sound system is fabulous and will go to my grandsons for their X-Box.

I recently purchased Monitor Audio Silver consisting of RS6 fronts, RS lcr center and RS fx surrounds. I'm very pleased with the sound (for both home theatre and music) and I'm looking forward to getting the speakers "run in". I'm also using an Energy sub. My receiver is a Rotel RSX-1056.
