Just getting into audio. Had a HTIB and a 30" Toshiba CRT previously until I recently upgraded almost everything. My financial situation should improve considerably over the next few years, as I'm finishing up my Ph.D. this year and should actually begin to make a livable wage. Long term, I'm considering putting together a Dynaudio/McIntosh setup of some sort. But currently I have...


Speakers:

4 Polk Audio VM10 for fronts and surrounds
1 Polk Audio VM20 for center channel
1 Polk Audio PSW 125 subwoofer

Receiver/ Media:

Sony DG720 receiver with PS3 processing HD sound
PS3 for movies and PS3, 360, and Wii for gaming

TV:

Panasonic 46" 1080p plasma PZ85U

Car:

I have an old Alpine head unit and disc changer and MB Quart speakers. I'm not doing anything to upgrade my car stereo until I get my next car.

So far:

Vienna Acoustics
Mozart Grand
Maestro Grand
Hayden Grand
JL Audio f112

Only thing I am looking to do, is add another f112, on the speaker front anyway.

My setup hasn't changed, but my wife got her Polk RM10's replaced by a Sunfire setup:

Sunfire CRS-3 L/R
Sunfire CRM2-BIP Surrounds
Sunfire CRS-3C Center

My fear is that her setup may sound better than mine for movies since everything matches.....we'll see.

I love this stuff!

Thanks, yeah, the chairs are cozy. Makes it hard to stay awake through a late movie. They are Berkline 45004's. I bought them a few years ago on an avs power buy.

I have one of these: (Kenwood AX-7)

http://images.google.com.au/images?h...gbv=2&aq=f&oq=

(click on the second one for a large view)

(except the pre-amp is on the left side of the power amp.)
The setup is on a desk/workstation, with the amps where the printer should be and the speakers in the top corners. I think the sound quality is very good, except that I will need to get a sub-woofer eventually.

Juvenescence and multifariousness is eternal.

Nice end table too. Do you let the kids eat and drink in there?

They often eat crackers, any messes get vacuumed up pretty easy. Drinks are the occasional problem. The daughter uses a sippy cup, and my son is real good about not spilling. We make him use a straw, with cups that have lids for the most part. We have had 2 spills, 1 of which was from a drink that mom and dad left in a cup holder after a late show. Daughter found it next morning.

The microfiber cleans up really nicely, with just water and a rag for food spots. We use a carpet shampooer for the carpets and any real messes on the seats.

The "end table" doesn't get used by anything other than remotes. Dad would flip his lid if anything got spilled on top of it!

I have a 7.1 system with some rare (I think) speakers. I wonder if I'm the only one on this site with MB Quart and Fosgate Audio speakers. If not, I'd like to hear from others and what they think of them.

MB Quart QLSP44XL Towers
Fosgate Audio FA61.0 Surrounds
Fosgate Audio FA52.0 Center
SVS PB12-NSD Sub
Onkyo 705 Receiver

Please ignore the baby toys...my nine month old is taking over the house. The system is in a temporary spot (yes, in front of the fire place!) as we clean up to sell our condo. Looking forward to a house so I can really crank these things up...

I just recently purchased a full set of Klipsch speakers from Mike over at acousticsounddesign.com I have the RF-82 fronts, RC62 Center and 4- RS-52 surrounds. I also bought the Denon 3808 AV receiver. I have always been a fan of Klipsch and have owned the Quintets for years. It is amazing how great the reference series sounds. I love the crisp clean sound and they do a great job of filling the gap from mid to sub. The Denon receiver is a pretty awesome piece of equipment also. It has the networking ability and can access internet radio and firmware updates. If anyone is looking at buying a set on Klipsch give Mike a call he made me an awesome deal I couldn't pass up. $3,378.00 for everything delivered 2-RF82, 1-RC62, 4-RS52 and the Denon 3808. I looked around for a long time and this was by far the best price I could find.

Love the Forum

Coming from the father of a 2y/o, you're going to want those speaker cones covered in the new place. Once your 9month old is walking watch out speakers..... Good luck in finding a house with a good room for HT.

Here is my setup:


Front: PSB T65
Center: PSB 200ci
Left/Right Rears: PSB 500s
Rear/Rears : PSB Alphas
Sub: PSB Subsonic II 12"
Reciever: Arcam AVR300



Sound insulation around the T65's


Alphas mounted on the brick wall for the rears

Got the camera out and took some pics of my Elemental Designs W6-6TC's. I've downgraded to a 2 channel system for now. Extremely happy with the sound. Smooth like butta! The finish is pretty nice too.

Powered by an Onkyo 805 and all new wiring coming this week along with a center channel & surrounds. Surprisingly I could tell a difference when bi-amped so I'll be going that route.
