Currently i only have a basic stereo setup with a pair of Polk Audio's TSi100 speakers, but i'm trying to make a proper surround setup with better, larger speakers.

Got around to making better foto's.

Here's my Bose speaker Atmos configuration built around a 120 inch wide projector screen. The two top front speakers fell of the photo.

It is obvious, that you did spend lots of time and money to built your room


But one question come to mind.
Don't you find your sound in this room to have No Life?
You have Lots of room acoustics
I use to have some in back, and now sound better since I remove most of them (the back, not the front).


Just out of curiosity, because, if it sound Good to You.
This is all that matter

Just got a new TV stand and a new set of speakers so have updated a bit. This is a living room set-up. Need more time with the speakers to determine if they are keepers. (note we are planning on new curtains and a rug in there somewhere)

HK AVR 2600
LG OLED55C6
Klipsch RB-61 II x4
Klipsch RC-62 II
SVS PB-10

Hi Ray,

I mostly spent a lot of time on it since I built it with my brother in law in what used to be a horse stable by the new house we bought. The gear is stuff I have been collecting the last 5 years at our local Craigslist. This is when we started:



You are right that the room acoustics (all the acoustic foam from top to bottom) does make the room 'weird' to the ears when you enter it. Specifically, the systems sound is top notch when sitting on the couch facing the screen -which makes it excellent for movies/concerts and gaming-, but it's not a room to throw a party in since the sound is way off anywhere not on the couch. Even lying down on the couch when listening to music makes it sub optimal. Basically the sound is extremely directional pointed at the MLP, if you know what I mean.

For movies (and games) I must say that the sound is better than even the iMax theatre I rarely visit (it's weird to realise it's better at home when sitting there). Haven't had the pleasure of experiencing a Dolby Cinema yet though.

Long story short, the acoustic treatment is an uncompromised choice (more than I thought it would be) for MLP screen viewing use.

From where I am sitting right now in my shop I am listening to a pair of HeathKit 1373's Driven by a old Onkyo TX-8255. Source from my server b/u unit. I built the speakers in 1981 when they came out n the market. Around 1988 replaced the woofers with Pyle units from Crutchfield.

Hello. I have a pair of pioneer dss-7 speakers that I bought in Germany in 1986 or so. They still work but they have been regulated to secondary use in the living room where my main stereo setup is in the basement media/av room. I am curious. Would they be of use to anyone as a living room upgrade does not really support such large speakers anymore. I don't care about selling them but if someone wanted them, we could discuss.

The whole thing? I don't think I'd pay more than $200 but others might go as high as $500. A lot depends upon condition.

Hello, I am currently putting together my "dream" system. I have most of it. Just waiting on delivery of a few parts. It'll all be here by the 3rd of August. It'll be 60/40, Music/H.T.

1) Mains L+R, One four piece set "separate woofer and Hi/Mid cabinets" of Infinity RS-1b's heavily modified and upgraded. I think some call it Hot-rodded"
2) Center, 1 Polk audio, CsiA6
3) Surrounds, 2 Polk audio, floor standing, CsiA9's
4) Rear, 2 Klipsch, floor standing, reference F280's
5) Subwoofer, 1 Rythmik, F25 with Servo controlled 2x15", and 800 watt RMS amplifier.

Well, it "will" be an 7.1.4 system once I'm done. I'm looking at Definitive Tech. ceiling speakers for ATMO's which will be my ".4". I guess my infinities will work for ATMO's.
I would LOVE to check out some other systems in the Md., D.C. area! I'll buy the snacks!

Def Tech BP8B Fronts
Def Tech 8040HD Center
Def Tech XTR-20 Rears and Sides
Dual SVS SB-2000 in a front and rear configuration
Room is roughly 20 by 14 but im moving the setup to a 30 by 18 next month.

Looking for suggestions to upgrade the BP8Bs towers and the 8040HD center.

Receiver is a Yamaha 2060BL.

Mostly used for TV, Gaming and Movies.

Dual screen setup, 75" 900e and a HW65ES on a 120" screen. Screen rolls down in front of the TV.

Sounds pretty good. I feel like the center is really slacking in the setup and I constantly need to up the level on the center to stop the voices from being drowned out. So I want to get a new trio upfront.
