I picked up a set of Carver Amazing Loudspeakers, Silver models, (a.k.a. "surfboards") about 10 or 15 years ago. A buddy got a pair of the Platinums at the same time. We both wanted black at the time, but all we could get was oak. Now I think I like the oak better anyway.

I run them off of a trusty old Luxman R-117, and I still love 'em!

I have a set of Bose (I know, I know!) Acoustimass 10 II speakers that I picked up in 2001 at a local Sears. They are pretty horrible for any serious music listening (too mid-rangey for my tastes) but are ok for movies and gaming.

I've been saving money for a new speaker system which will either be SCS-01(M) Speaker Package from SVS, the 'People's Choice' speaker package from Orb Audio, or (if I win the lottery) the System 4200e from Atlantic Technology.

Just purchased a set of KEF KHT 3005 speakers and sub, excellent sound, heavy for bookshelves, look fantastic in 2 pac black, wife loves them too. These have won so many international awards last year and this, owners reviews elsewhere give them a 9 out of max 10.

For the moment I only have a stereo setup. But I am running a pair of Martin-Logan Montage (Cherry Finish) with a Denon DRA-397. When I have the time and budget, I'll be going H/T with a Definitve/ Pioneer Elite setup in a separate room.

Rocket RS450s up front with a RSC200 Bigfoot Center. Ref 0.5 surrounds. Kenwood SW-35HT Sub (next upgrade). Considering buying a single RSS300 dipole surround and modifying it to a bipole to use as the rear speaker for a 6.1 setup. (not enough space currently to justify a 7.1 setup).

I just started getting into this kind of stuff. My grandfather gave me his 70's Sanyo JCX 2100K stereo receiver, and my dad is letting me borrow his pair of Paradigm Atoms.
