Hey guys, finally tired of trolling.

Here is my 7.1 setup:
Fronts: Polk Tsi500's
Center: Polk RM6750 center
Surrounds and rears: Polk RM6750 set (4)
Sub: Klipsch 12" 650watt

Being pushed by my Onkyo TX-SR705 and displayed on the Sony 60" SXRD :-)

Future:
I am sure looking more on here I will find plenty.
Thinking of upgrading to Polk CS20 center, and possibly bi-amping the Tsi500's. Need to read up on that on here first to see if it is worth it.

Hello everyone,

I've been reading various forums on this site for quite some time, but thought I should actually post something. Here is my current setup:

5.1 Audio:
- Phase Technology dARTS 525 (two subs)
- Onkyo PR-SC885P

Video:
- Sony KDS-50A3000
- Toshiba HD-A2 (jumped on the HD bandwagon a couple months too soon!)

I need to add a blu-ray player soon, and perhaps add some rear surrounds for 7.1. Pretty happy so far

Just changed everything up last week. Went from JBL E-Series 30, 35, 20 and 10's to AV123 ELT525 T, C and M (2 pairs) and finished my quad MJ18 IB yesterday.

Never posted my set up before. I'm running a 50" Panasonic 85U, a Denon 2809ci, and an M&K 150 set paired with an MX-350 sub. I absolutely love my speakers and can't believe that I've already had them for almost nine years! Come to think of it, what's the general lifespan of rubber-based speakers anyway? 20 years or more?
mothaselin's Avatar mothaselin 03:42 PM 02-11-2009
Ok a fairly new member B & W 802D's on the front left and right. For the center HTM1D and for the rears 2 803ds. Just 5 channel and for the sub I am still using an old one. Have not decided on the sub any suggestions?

Totem Sttaf
Paradigm Titan v5
Energy RC-1 Mini
Energy C-100 Center Channel (own 3 of these)
Energy 8" sub

I actually have more speakers than I need for 7.1 but have an extra amp so will set up a small system in my bedroom using Paradigm Titan.

I went from this setup:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9#post12961709

and replaced all the rears with Wharfedale Diamond 8.1s, and selling on 3 of the Rubiance speakers. I went from 6.1 to 7.1.

Then recently, in the Wharfedale thread, someone posted a link to an ebay auction, from WWE, who were selling out on a 5.1 set of Evos (not the Evo2's) which included 2 DFS speakers. Being no good to me, I made contact and got my own tailored setup.

So within the next week or so I am going to end up with the following:

Sub -> Definitive 15TL powered 15 inch.
Fronts -> Matching WD EVO40 tall standing
Centre -> EVO centre
Rears -> 4 matching EVO10s

I'm hoping that WWE can get hold of a matching EVO sub, so I can round out the system.

This is all powered by my Onkyo 805.

Here's a link to my latest post in the Wharfedale thread. Included are a couple of picture.

Wow, it's a small world! My current front speakers are also Celestion SL6s; I bought them in the '80s. They are still very nice, although I will be replacing them tomorrow with a set of Hsu speakers, designed to integrate with a Hsu Subwoofer, which I have owned for several months. The old SL6s turned out to be one of the bargains of the modern age. My current center, surround, and back surround speakers are legacies of a 10 year old HTiB system. I am looking forward to the upgrade.

When I get the my new Hsu speakers installed, I'll post further about my system and how it is working out.

Just finished upgrading the speakers from the Onkyo HT-S5100, and what a difference they make! Saving up for a SVS PC12-NSD to replace the sub.

Fronts, Surrounds, and Back Surrounds: 6 Hsu HB-1 MK2s
Center: Hsu HC-1 Mk2
Subwoofer: Hsu VTF-3 MK3 Turbo
AV Receiver: Yamaha RX-V3900
HDTV Pioneer Kuro 6020
Blu-Ray/DVD Player: PS3

This has been a significant upgrade for me and I am loving it! I started the upgrade process last summer when I got the PS3. It is my first BD player. Then I replaced a 5 year old 50 inch RCA DLP with the 60 inch Pioneer 6020.

The first step of my audio system upgrade was to add the HSU sub. It replaced an ancient pair of Dr. Hsu's first model, the HRSW10, which I bought in the early '90s. Just this week I have completed my audio upgrade with both the addition of a new AV receiver and the other Hsu speakers. The speakers replaced the old legacy speakers, which I previously described in post #1370. The new receiver replaces a 5 year old Yamaha RX-V2400. The 2400 is still very nice but lacks HDMI connections, the ability to decode the new high bitrate Codecs, network capability, and too much other stuff that the 3900 has to go into here.

Based on my first few hours of listening, I am very pleased with my Hsu speakers. They integrate into a seamless soundstage and, when I am listening to a high bitrate Codec on a BD movie, provide a level of sonic excellence I had not experienced before.

Fronts: JBL HLS615
Center: JBL HLSCenter
Rear: JBL HLS610
Sub1: JBL PSW1200 Main LFE
Sub2: JBL DPS-12 Hooked up to the center channel
Sub3: JBL PB10 Hooked up to the rear channels (Currently not working, keeps blowing the fuse)

It's hard to believe, but I've had these speakers for 10 years. Other than the dead PB10, I have not had any issues with these speakers, or the set up. They sound great to me.

Ain't it the truth! Bose's marketing is so brilliant and the visual appeal of its systems so great, most people don't figure out how weak Bose stuff is until they get a real receiver and real speakers.

Hi,
I have a sound system issue that I hope someone can help me out with. I have a main set of Klipsch F3s I just bought at the Circuit City garage sale for $125 ea still in a box. They replace a set of Infinity SM 152s I have had for years. I have an old set of Bose 601s for the rear, a Bose VCS-10 center spkr, a K-12 Klipsch Sub-W, and two JBL Northridge N24s front spkrs. Here is my problem I hope you feel like helping with. Since I bought the F3s, movies are great but music is disappointing. I have a Yamaha DSP-A2 amp with a Kenwood Parametric Equalizer. The base response is just not as good when I had my old Infinity set. I suspect it is the Sub-W settings, the manual is worthless. Also, the F-3s are much crisper than the Infinity's which may contribute to the issue. On the Sub-W I have the phase set @ 0 and the Hz around 80. Unless I crank it up which shakes the whole room I don't get the base I should. the Eq is set the way I have always had it for the last 15 years, and have played with it as well to tone the F3s down a bit and bost mid-range and bass. The LFE is set ok on the AMP, anybody have an idea? I have tile floors, but have adj the Yamaha to compensate for the reflection.
