This is an awsome setup for a 14x20x8 room, everyone is blown away by the sound and picture. Just love my dedicated home theater.

Home Office System (#1) "mixed movies/music" . . . 7.1 Standard plus 2x Front_Presence speakers
Mains(2), Center(1): 3x Yamaha AST-S1 (aka YST-S1)
Surrounds(2), Rears(2), Front_Presence(2): 6x Polk R15
Subs(3): (Left) 1x Harman/Infinity TSS-SUB450; (Right) 1x Jamo SUB 550; (Rear/Experimental) 1x Yamaha YST-MSW10
Center_Surround/Rear(1, experimental processing only): 1x Yamaha AST-S1 (aka YST-S1)



After running this system for some time with [one] Harman/Infinity TSS-SUB450 sub (100W, and 39Hz-150Hz, ±3dB), I recently added a Jamo SUB 550 (550W, and 26Hz-150Hz) to provide some additional solidity/smoothness plus a little more real power to the low end bass. I now run the Harman/Infinity TSS-SUB450 as the 'left side' sub, and the Jamo SUB 550 as the 'right side' sub [notwithstanding the nominal differences in power/performance between the two models, there is no sense of bass asymmetry in the room]. Plus, as my Yamaha YST-MSW10 sub is not presently in use elsewhere, I'm going to experiment with adding a third, 'rear' sub, with very low power (25W, and 35Hz, -10dB), running in various room locations.

The (somewhat dated) HTR-5860 AVR has the usual Yamaha [mid price] feature that it switches between two speaker configurations: 7.1 Standard, and 5.1 Standard plus 2 Front Presence speakers. In the latter case, the Left and Right Rear speakers are silent [leaving a sizable gap between the Left and Right Surround speakers]. So later this year I'm going to experiment with using the Dolby-3 decoder in an [old] Pioneer VSX-5600 AVR to redirect some content from the Left and Right Surround channels to a [new] Center Surround/Rear speaker. [I suspect it will either work 'well' . . . or completely destroy the rear soundfield!]

[Plus I still have two additional and unused Polk R15 bookshelf speakers available to the system 'for future expansion'. ]











System #2 - 'Theater' "mostly movies" . . . 7.1(2) Standard plus 2x Front_Presence speakers
Mains(2), Center(2, 'over&under'): 4x Yamaha AST-S1 (aka YST-S1)
Surrounds(2): 2x Cambridge SoundWorks Ambiance
Rears(2): 2x Polk R15
Front_Presence(2): 2x Harman/EPi Wall Plane
Subs(2): (Left) 1x Harman/Infinity TSS-SUB450; (Right) 1x Jamo SUB 550
Front_Wides(2, experimental processing only): 2x Polk R50

System #3 - Living Room "mostly music" . . . 6.1 Standard plus 2x Front_Presence speakers
Mains(2): 2x Klipsch XF-48
Center(1), Surrounds(2), Rear(1): 4x Cambridge SoundWorks Ambiance
Front_Presence(2): 2x Harman/EPi Wall Plane
Sub(1): 1x Yamaha YST-MSW10 "You can never be too rich, too thin, or own too many speakers!"

Here's the systems I'm working with. Both setups are equipped with Aura speakers (formerly Linaeum) with Line Source monopole tweeters, because I love highly detailed and transparent sound they create.

Home Theater Room:

Aura LSW-828M standmounters up front
Aura LSC-537M center channel
Aura LSB - 527M L&R surrounds
Aura LSC-537M back surround
Miller & Kreisel MX-125 Mk II Subwoofer

2 Channel Listening Room:

Aura LST 627M tower speakers
Miller & Kreisel MX-70B Subwoofer

ORB AUDIO MOD 4 - L,C,R
ORB SUB-WOOFER
POLK 6 1/2 CEILING SPEAKERS
ELITE VSX-92TXH
OPPO 980
PANASONIC 61" LCD RPTV
FURMAN PL-8 (II) LINE CONDITIONER & SURGE PROTECTION
THE ROOM IS APPROX 17' x 17'.
THE CEIILING (10' FT HIGH) IS CONSTRUCTED AS A "TRAY", WITH IT'S SIDES ON A SLANT, SO THAT THE POLK SPEAKERS ARE AIMING DOWN TO THE LISTENING AREA. THE SUB-WOOFER IS LOCATED IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM, AS I FEEL IT GIVES MORE OF A DYNAMIC SOUND AND FEEL FROM THAT POSITION.
THE SOUND IS WARM, AND VERY SWEET.

for my front and center speakers i have dcm cx 17s, for surround i have vintage bose 201 series2, my sub is a polk psw 303, all of these speakers are driven by a denon 3802 receiver, toshiba dvd/vcr combo for movies, all speakers are spl adjusted plus a rca 52 inch screen tv next month i will add two more speakers to my set up since the denon is capable of 7.1, i managed to get this set up after hurricane katrina wipe me out couple of years ago, so now i guess you can call this my mississippi redneck setup , since i moved out of that fish bowl down south

NHT models from before the "buyout" by Recoton in 2001... Speaking of, any NHT fans should read this article -- seems NHT owns NHT once again!

http://www.stereophile.com/news/013108nht/

Anyway:

L, R -- NHT 2.5i
C -- NHT AudioCenter-1
SL-A, SL-B, SBL, SBR, SR-A, SR-B -- NHT SuperOne
Sub L, Sub R -- NHT SubTwo-i

I simply love these speakers. I'll be curious to see what they come up with now that they're back in control of their own destiny once again!

I originally bought the Spendors to be my fronts, but felt they didn't have enough "push". At that time I was using an old set of Bose bookshelf speakers for surrounds.

Anyone want the spendors?

This is a fun thread. Right now, I have:

Fronts (L/C/R): M&K S150THX on ST-1 base (awesome base) L/R and S150C.
Rears: M&K SS150THX MkII
Sub: M&K MX200.
Pre: B&K Ref20
Amp: Sunfire Cinema Grand 200/400 wattsx5 into 8/4ohm
Pioneer 50" 720p.

But the M&K monitors are going out soon to make room for...

Fronts: Monitor Audio GS60
Center: Monitor Audio GSLCR
Rear: Monitor Audio GS20
Sub: M&K MX200
Pre: Onkyo PR-SC885p/Integra 9.8
Amp will remain unchanged... for awhile yet (I hope).

I could not pass the speakers up at the price I found, as I have some 9i (which are also on their way out) and have always enjoyed them, have heard the GR20 and cannot wait to hear the GS60. So, instead of a dedicated stereo for the 9i and HT separate with the M&Ks, all of my audio bliss will be enjoyed from my comfy TV sofa. I may be doing some crazy 2-ch preamp/bypass stuff, as I have heard some mixed reviews on the Onkyo for stereo. But I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

Music only:

Heavily modified (41lbs!) Spica TC-50's with SEAS tweeter and lead matrix to reduce resonance.
Kinergetics SW200 subs with 2x10" Dynaudio woofers per side, 150 watt SS amp/crossover and Kinergetics stands to accomodate the Spica's and time align with subs.
Audio Research SP9 pre
Cary SLA 70A Signature amp driving the Spica's above 100hz.
Cambridge Azur 640C CD player
Transparent Cable
API audio wedge 112 power conditioner

A/V System:

Currently, only a pair of Energy C3's driven by an Adcom 535 amp and a Boston Acoustics sub with 8" woofer. The source (pre) is the TV in which I split the signal going to the Adcom and the sub. I plan on expanding soon to an A/V receiver and surround speakers.
