Current setup:
Toshiba 37" LCD

Moving to a new house at the end of the month and will be upgrading the sound system. Probably stick with H/K for receiver, and will upgrade to Klipsch Reference or something comparable.

Panasonic P50S1
PS3
Harman Kardon AVR 2600
HSU Research STF-2
Infinity Primus F/R/C
Running 5.1 (for now)

I am a Phase Tech dealer and have their DARTS system in my theater.

My main speakers are model DCB-525-LR.
Center channel is DCB-525-C.
Surrounds are DCB-525-SURR.
I have 2 subwoofers, model DCB-210-SUB.
Control unit is model DP-2000, a 16 channel, 250w per channel amplifier.
The system can be calibrated for optimum sound.

Most amazing sounding speakers I have heard whether I am listening to music or watching a movie.

High end speaker setup with a high end price tag, but worth every penny. I would highly recommend these to anyone.

My current 2.1ch setup:

Fronts: Amphion Argon 2 Anniversary
Subwoofer: Chorus Vertigo XLS

I am planning to replace my current subwoofer with a more sophisticated apparatus, like Rythmik Audio Direct Servo kit. However, the first thing to do is to buy a better amplifier for my new speakers

Just upgraded recently from my 6 year-old Onkyo HT-510 speakers to the Athena's from audioadvisor. Still using the Onkyo HT-R510 receiver and the Onkyo sub though. Eventually I will upgrade both. So I ended up choosing the LS-500 package without the subwoofer. My current configuration is:

2x LS-500 Tower Speakers
1x LS-C100 Center
2x LS-100B Bookshelf Speakers
1X Onkyo Center Speaker (for rear center)
1X Onkyo Subwoofer
Onkyo HT-R510 6.1 receiver

Other Stuff:
Sony KDS-A552020
Samsung LN26A450 (for future bedroom)
PS3 60GB
Xbox 360 Elite
Nintendo Wii
Custom HTPC
Dish Network (soon to be ComcastHD)


My sources vary a lot; I run a pretty even mix between tv, movies, music, and gaming. So far I am very pleased with the Athenas. I am not much of an audiophile, more of a noob and a videophile lol.... but these speakers are turning me into a total audio-fiend. These are by far the best speakers I have ever owned.
Someday I plan on upgrading the receiver to something with good HDMI pass-through(probably a newer onkyo), another set of LS-100's for 7.1 rears, and a much better sub. For now though, this system is really putting my sources to the test. Now I am noticing imperfections from some source material that I never knew were there. Other than that most everything just sounds amazing, not to mention the speakers look very nice with the rest of my setup.

Here's a pic of everything in front:

Heh. Fried A/5 mains, Omnisat micro surrounds, and another Mirage (direct) center (can't remember the model) and a HSU STF-2 sub (currently dead). Clearly, I'm desperately in need of some updates

Theater: Revel In-Wall I30 Fronts
Revel C32 Center
Revel In-Wall I20 Rear
Revel B15a Sub

2-Channel:
Office: Revel M20
Living Room: NHT Model 1
Kitchen: NHT Model 1
Patio: Def Tech Outdoor

I really like the Revel sound. Office was a migration from what was originally the Front L/R in the Theater. NHT's are from the 90's and mainly background. Patio is also primarily background/party music.

Hello everyone new here, putting things together now:

NHT 2.5i towers
NHT 1.5 rears
NHT Audio Center 1
Yamaha RX-V663
PS3
Samsung 50" Plasma

I'm in the market for a good sounding sub that can get low and loud, and a amplifier to compliment my mains because the yamaha receiver by itself just is not cutting it.

Dali Mentor 8's and Mentor Vokal across the front.
Dali Ikon Phantoms in-ceiling for rears.
SVS pb13 Ultra sub.

The Dali's in the front are running over 400w each from my Sherbourn 2100A bridging 6 channels. The Dali's in the back are being run by an Onkyo 875.

I'm very, very pleased...

Dali's dual tweeter (1 ribbon and 1 soft dome) system is incredible!

I recently purchased a pair of Paradigm Studio 20's with the plans of upgrading the HT piece by piece starting with the fronts. It ended up that the Studio 20's I bought weren't magnetically shielded so I'm waiting for the mag shielded speakers to arrive. In the meantime I was able to purchase, off of Craigslist, some Atlantic Technology 4200 THX speakers (not the E series) L/C/R & 642 SB subwoofer for a total of $500.00 for the 3 fronts & sub! These speakers sound so sweet but I'm waiting for the Studio 20's to arrive to see how they all work together. Current 7.1 setup:

Fronts & Center: Atlantic Technology 4200LR, 4200C
Sub: Atlantic Technology 642SB
Surrounds: Bose 301's (likely to be replaced)
Rear Speakers: Pro AC Tablette Reference 8 speakers (given to me for free from a friend who I don't think knew what he had sitting in his closet)
AVR: Pioneer Elite VSX84TXSi (looking for an Elite 94)
PS3 for BD

We'll see how much this changes once I get the Studio 20's in and I get to experiment a bit.

Hi all,

The Following is my Kool 5.1 set up.

Receiver - Denon 3808 CI

Fronts - Polk audio Monitor 70 Series floor standing speakers

Center -CS2 From Polk audio

Rears - Polk audio Monitor 40 Series

Subwoofer - PSW125 from Polk audio

I would like to know if anyone else has the same set up including the reciever and please share how u feel about this set up?

My analysis on POLK audio if i am allowed to share in this thread - this is my first set up in my life.However i have listened to Kef, Bose, Boston accoustics ,Sony and other speakers before purchasing Polk.Others were good on DVD, while Polk was good both on DVD and CD Music. I think i made a wise decision in buying polk.Polks Monitor 70's have a silver metal frame that matches the TV and it looks great. I am sure there are better speakers than the series that i picked. But thats all circuit city had to offer. Can anyone else comment on this set up with Denon 3808??

However darker the clouds might be, Never give up;there's always a ray of hope.

After many months of auditioning, I upgraded from a Paradigm Signature 5.1 set-up to a Revel Ultima2 set-up.

Front: Revel Studio2's
Center Revel Voice2
Surrounds: Revel Gem2's




(That's one of my cute pugs, Roxy, wondering what the hell is making that bright flash of light. )



They sound OK I guess.

If you plan on keeping the JBL center channel, then you should buy the JBL Venue "Stage" or "Stadium" floor standers. You always want to match the speakers across the front. It looks like amazon has both of those speakers at close to your budget.
