I like your setup! Where's the surrounds? If they're there and I missed them I apologize...I'm half asleep still

My Setup
Stage 1 - Enthusiasm
Stage 2 - Realism
Stage 3 - Obsession
Stage 4 - Acceptance

Which stage are you on?

This is pretty cool. My first reply, I hope everything goes well.
Everybody has pretty awesome setups. Mine is modest but considering that about 4 months ago I was using a RCA HTIB, it's not that bad.

Hey, long time away from the forums and just got back into the scene with a recent bug to upgrade.

Previous system:
Fronts: JBL HLS820
Center: Klipsch C-2
Surrounds: JBL E10
Sub: Custom Ascendant Audio Arsenal sub with Behringer amp.
Receiver: Yamaha HTR-5750

Current system :
Fronts: Klipsch RF-3
Center: Klipsch RC-62II
Rears: Working on it....
Sub: Klipsch RW-10d
Receiver: Denon AVR1912

Not to shabby, and still deciding on surrounds, but sounds Great!
It's awesome how everybody is sharing their own unique systems. Truly amazing.

I'll bet that system is quite capable! I don't believe I've ever seen a system that is as closely spaced, with speakers that size.

What happened to the old Ascendant Audio sub, as you could sure use it right now? Considering matching your mains and current sub, with all that firepower how does the 10" sub keep up?

Thanks for the pics, and good luck

It was more of space concerns aka the wife. The sub enclosure was 3'x3'x3', so while rather large, it dig deep. Plus wanted something with a cleaner look. Trying to find an RSW series on Craigslist so I can add on haha. Right now in an apartment temporarily. Just closed on the house so gonna have a 25x35 room these bad boys are gonna go in. That's when I will probably need the second or larger sub. Thanks for the compliments and even though they are all close it creates the ultimate sweet spot!

They are about 17 by 14 with just under 7 foot ceilings. I think if my elite ever dies I will get a projector. But I still need to calibrate everything and orginize all the cables behind the wall.

I have a pair of Rti35 Polk Audio front bookshelfs and an Polk Audio CS350-lt1 centerchannel. I need to get a few rears ant my first question is?

Is the sound balanced using these in my setup? Do the Rti35's and CS350-LT1 CC go well together?

What should I add for rears? Right now I'm using a pair of Bose 201's for my rears with the speakers mentioned above but I do not know if they are all that balanced.

I'm running everything through a Denon AVR2807.

Oh and by the way, would floor standing speakers be a better setup for the fronts?

I got my parents the AS-F1s and the AS-C1 back in '03 I think. Great sounding speakers for the price, I thought they were very clean and crisp with vocals. Very nice setup. Those towers are beast with the dual 8" woofers, I think that's what they are anyway, and the soft some tweeter. Plus they look stylish. Great stuff!

My main loudspeakers are the VMPS RM-1s in my 2 ch audio only room in the basement. Room is basically 20 x 13 x 7 with a opening between supports into other half of almost equal volume. Walls employ GIK bass traps (7) to help tame the room. Also upstairs is a pr. of DCM-1As in living room. On the way is the DCM-Timewindow 3s which will see some duty downstairs.

Indy, I don't know if you've ever had a room that large before, but about 3 years ago I moved into a large room myself. I don't want to discourage or scare you, but it is going to shock you what a black hole that volume of space can be for audio gear. You will most certainly need a pair of subs, and they will need to be monster subs at that. Your RF3's are also going to be marginal depending on your expectations. If you want to be capable of Reference volume levels, they will fall short.

I had a system I was happy with for 20 years in a normal sized room. Moved into the big space and it sounded like a clock radio. After two more generations of audio, I finally realized that there was no way to cut corners with that much volume to fill. I'm extremely happy now, but it was a process to get here.

Best of luck in the new home, and I'd like to see more about the room. Do you have or do you plan to start a build thread in the construction forum? Hope so.

I've added a few pieces of gears to my setup...until next time
I purchased a Yamaha AVC-50 (to help the Pioneer) from the local classified for less than a meal at my favorite fast food place and added a couple of cd players, Yamaha CDC-605 and a JVC XLV-282 (why 2?...cause i can)

wife: "are you gonna be adding equipment to this setup forever?"
me : "mmmmhh, probably"

I've been in rooms similar with other speakers (parents Athenas) but never with a subwoofer. So I tried them out in there and realized what you are talking about with subwoofer. The speakers surprisingly kept up, but I noticed I was nearing the top of any head room I had. So that now has me looking at new subwoofers. And looks like I'm going to be getting a new toy or two. haha. Andddd maybe a new amp Muahahaha.
Cheers.

B&W 602S3, I've had these for about 2 years now. Great speaker, highly detailed with pinpoint imaging, forward sounding.

GR Research has a pair of N2X traveling the country for audition, I just had my turn with them. A really sweet, laid back speaker, you can listen for hours with no fatigue.

The WAF-1 is all that remains of the three, I sold the B&W's to my brother and sent the N2X on to forum member desertdome. I have had these sitting in a box since February, they came as a package deal with my Chase 18.T Duo Series 2 subwoofers. No real interest in them, as the B&W's plus dual 18" subs were doing great for 2 channel duty. I was kind of concerned about having only these speakers to fall back on while I wait for the next pair.

Well, these little guys surprised me. I have never heard an inexpensive speaker sound so good, and of the three, the WAF-1 actually portrayed the deepest soundstage. These little guys don't mind at all when you lay the power on them, they will do just fine until my next speakers arrive. It's too bad these are no longer in production.

I just set these up as shown for the pics. All listening was done with one pair optimally placed on stands and the others removed from the area.

Truly outstanding job on the speakers Ward. As another poster said you must be quite the craftsman. I would love to try a DIY prooject like that, but need to get a LOT of experience beforehand (I will be trying a simple veneering project soon, I think, but I know I will never come close to what I saw on your pics).

The plexiglas turntable is interesting (as is the rest of your gear). Is that by any chance maiid by Prisma in the UK? I still have my ancient Prisma Transcriptor turntable made by J Mitchell Engineering. Please, please don't tell me you made it yourself, my bookshelves are already looking bad enough. (Would you like to do a dashboard for an E-type?)

Besides a likely receiver upgrade in a few years. I'm good for a long time.




I have my PC hooked up to said setup although the tower is out of sight. There are more 7.x PC games than I realised...

Dbchan, I'm with you all the way. I bet those 777's sound great. A much overlooked product in my opinion.

Thank you. It's really incredible the sound they put out, they are not embarrassed by the more expensive speakers I had here in the least. Sins of omission mostly, which is preferable to me over added distortions.

My girlfriend has hinted that I should give her the WAF-1's.


Edit: I just took at look at your system, then remembered that I've seen it before. I recall drooling over it, especially the new digs and that beautiful view!
