Few of my friends told me it sounds like rubish and I wasted my money, I think it sounds great.

Here is what I have:

Krix Neuphonix (In a room that is 6 Metres x 5 Meters)
Rotel RC-1070
Rotel RB-1070

Im a complete newbie to this kind of equipment. Can anyone give me any tips on avioding damage to my speakers. Also, I'm not really certain on what sort of volume levels are safe for movies.

I have Usher 602's up front, Usher 603 as my center and moved my old B&W CM10's to the rears.

http://www.usheraudiousa.com/product...v-series/v-602

If you've never auditioned Usher speakers, visit their website and find your nearest dealer.

Even their under $400 bookshelves are a revelation...I tested them against all the major British and American brands and these Italian Designed/Built In Taiwan speakers are amazing.

The build quality puts B&W to shame.

Have a Velodyne SPL1000 sub that I rarely use now because the Ushers have as much bass as I need.

Just upgraded from an Onkyo 6.1 HTIB set of speakers.

Keeping the Onkyo AVR and the Onkyo sub, I have upgraded the Fronts/Center/Surrounds to:

Definitive Technology:
Front L/R Mains: SM450
Center: PC2000
Rear L/C/R Surrounds: BP1.2x's

Very pleased with my upgrade, next will be a hunt for a new sub, once the next bout of upgrade-itis hits.

I also have a 606, just copped a pair of RTi 7's Polk from Crutchfield...working on the suroounds, i am replacing a set of JVC f7tx speakers I've had for 9 years...Can I demote those to rear surrounds or save them for a zone 2?

These are being fired by a new Pioneer VSX-01THX Elite AVR
Panasonic PT-AE300U projector
Fixed 92" 16:9 screen

Living room..
2 KLH Platinum fronts 125 watt model 425
2 KLH split cube rears 85 watts model 9362

A Harman-Kardon computer speaker set for my laptop.

All three rooms get direct tv service and have assorted dvd upscalers, super VHS and dvd recorders.

Last speakers to mention are the Pioneer CS-G 203's. They are in storage. I didn't add the odd assortment of functional but sorry speakers from thrown away systems.

I've never met a speaker I wanted to throw out.

I am just starting out. I got the opportunity to pick up a pair of Usher V-604s at a good price, I should get those Friday of this week. Still need an amp to drive them. Just bought a used set of Boston Acoustics HD-7, need to refoam them before I can use them. Those will go on my computer speaker system.

Antique speaker system here.
I hope to upgrade later this year but, for now:

Infinity Kappa 6.1 fronts
Matching Infinity center
Fosgate dipole surrounds and
a very old AR sub about the size of a Volkswagen

driven by a Pioneer Elite SC-05
My "theater" is only 10` wide by 12` deep so I don`t need monster speakers.
I also don`t want to go to tiny satellites.Definitive Mythos STs are looking good for now, but I`ll probably change my mind by tomorrow.

I'm a new member so be easy.
System, Sony 4400 ES
My speakers are Klipsch XL23 LCR, two surround Klipsch CDT 5650 flush mounts and a Klipsch Synergy 650Watt 12" subwoofer.
My newest addition are the XL23 LCR, I just received them a couple of days ago. I watched a movie and listen to music through these babies and they sound excellent. Very happy with this set up. I am looking for some outside speakers to hang under the eves, any suggestions would be great. I keep this short for my first post. Looking forward to being a active member. Thanks J.r.

I'm currently powering JBL Studio L830's with an LC1 center channel. For my surrounds, I have Boston Bravo II's....I really like them, they mount beautifully in corners and sound great. For my sub, I'm running an old JBL PB10 (it works fine for now, but have been keeping my eyes peeled for a JBL L8400 to replace it). I have a Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K now, but bought the SC-07....going to arrive Monday. For my needs, this all works well today. Bought the SC-07 because I got it for less than $1k, and hope to make use of it's more powerful features in due time.

Hi mate. The terminals are standard on the Kef Ref's (with the plastic protectors). They are pretty nice aren't they ?!

The cable is Chord Odyssey 4 which I got from these guys:

http://www.futureshop.co.uk/chord-od...le-p-1128.html

Great service/price and speedy delivery. I'm a bit uneducated as to Chord Cable availability in the U.S though ?

Hope this helps !

Fronts- Energy Take TWR- x @ 60
Center- Energy Take FPS- x @ 80
Rears- Energy Take FPS- x @ 100
Sub- Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EX - LFE @ 120
Receiver- Onkyo TX-SR606

Really pleased with this set-up. I initially used Audyssey to configure the system, but in my opinion there was too much going on thru the rears and sub, and not enough base coming from the mains due to high (100) X over that Audyssey set. I re-configured the x overs and level matched all the speakers, and am very happy with the results. Nice bass extension up front, the sub goes deep when it should, but is more discrete the rest of the time. The rears are more subtle, and don't overwhelm the experience.

The rest of the system includes:

Pioneer 6020FD
PS3
Dish Network 722
Harmony One remote

Yamaha HTR-6190B - 7.1 A/V Receiver
Totem Sttaf Floorstanders (fronts)
Totem Mite-T Centre Channel

Revolver Rebel Red Turntable with Grado Reference Platinum Cartridge
Marantz TT15S1 Turntable with Clearaudio Virtuoso Cartridge

Working on getting a separate 2-channel amp this year, but most likely next as I'm in the market for a higher-end unit and maybe tubes. Also looking at a better phono stage...we'll see.
