Right now I'm stuck with some 'not so great' Sony speakers that came with my HTiB, looking to find some new ones.

All Mackie HR824s

A pair of crappy Sony speakers that I bought at a garage sale.

Sub:
No sub, saving for one atm. But right now the 824s provide enough base to piss off the neighbors.

Receiver:
Onkyo sr705 (for the preamp-outs).

I have 4 matching Wharfedale Rubiance RB-21 book case speakers.
I have 2 matching Wharfedale Rubiance CR centers.
I have 1 15" powered Definitive sub woofer

The RBs are bi-wired to my Onkyo 805 reciever. The CR are single wired.

BTW, if anyone has a couple (up to 4) of the RB-21's that they want to sell, then PM me. I'm trying for a 7.1 and can't seem to find them anymore....

Failing that, anyone got any useful ideas on the Diamond 8's?

Mits 73835, Denon X4000, Emotiva UPA5 (triggered), Wharfedale Pacific Evo 40s, CS, 10s, the internet, a NAS drive, a TiVo Series 3 and an Oppo 103 (bye bye PS3). There's also a Wii, but we don't talk about that...

I am running a pair of Infinity Primus 362s as mains, and well unfortunately my 'theater' if you call it that is just stereo at this point. What I want to complete it:

Primus 142 for rears
Primus C250
and some sub - it's gotta be affordable though

Randy, I was just surfing the net for good deals on speakers, and Harman Audio, the parent company of Infinity, has a store on ebay. There are some incredible deals on infinity speakers if you like them. I am super pleased with the 362s and want to match the voicing of my whole system.

Right now just the speakers from an Onkyo HTIB. I believe it was 790 or something. I've purchased an Onkyo 705 receiver and currently looking at upgrading speakers.

Ok;
Here they are:

Family room 5.1 set-up, Atlantic Technology system 350's, bought 2000 from 1Call, my first "real" HT speakers:


Basement HT 7.1 set-up (in process).
Paradigm Monitor series:
- (2) Frt Monitor Series 9
- (1) Center CC-390
- (4) Rear/back surrounds ADP-390
I budgeted around $2k (or so) for my speakers (w/o sub-woofer), these fit my price point, I went to a few dealers and listened to different brands and really liked the Paradigm Monitor series price/value/performance.

I went with the Series 9 instead of the series 11 Fronts, reason being is my room is not super large, 14.5 wide x 18.5 deep by 8.75 tall, 2,300 cubic feet of volume. If I was around 3000 cubic feet volume would have opted for the Series 11's to fill that bigger space, hopefully the Series 9's will fill my HT room fine.

Here are the paradigms mounted in the family room for their "break in" period.
Front LH and Center with grille removed to "show off":


Pict showing all 4 of the ADP-390 mounted for their break in period.
Notice how my current AT 350's fit nicely on that beam? I have no where to store them, at least they are out of the kids reach up there.
I joked with my wife about having our own mini "tower of power" if we hooked all those up at same time.

I am running M&K S125 fronts and center, with mk k4 tripoles in the rear and a M&K sub. I am thinking of selling these and getting some new B&W's.

Any input on the B&W speakers??

I've had this set up for about 4 years:

Mains: JBL S38II
Center: JBL S-Center
Surrounds: JBL N26II
Sub: Athena AS-P300
Receiver: Kenwood VR-6070

Would like to upgrade the receiver since I feel it is the weak link in my system. When running with only the mains (no sub) things are retardedly bassy and vocals are hard to hear. The receiver has very little adjustment options, but has served me well for the past 5+ years.

Ditched my old Sony HTIB back in July when my fiance and I bought our townhouse. Went with the JBL Venue Series, great speakers for the money.

Fronts - JBL Venue Stage
Center - JBL Venue Voice
Surrounds - JBL Venue Arena
Sub - JBL Sub 10

Come May when we get this "tax stimulus package" or whatever I'm going to be looking for something to replace my STR-DE895.
