thanks

if you make attachment this forum creates thumbs of the pics to click on, just like post #2758. if you upload to a site you can link the pics using the "insert image" icon in this editor when you are posting, etc. if the pic is too large this site will size the pic down until you click it, etc.

Funny, as I finally log on to post my speaker setup, it turns out I have practically the same setup as jproy13 -- which is unusual, since I haven't seen too many Athena Technologies owners here in the past...

In any case, this is my first 5.1 setup :

Fronts/ Athena Technologies AS-F2
Center/ Athena Technologies AS-C1
Surrounds/ Athena Technologies AS-B2
Subwoofer/SVS PB12-NSD DSP (ass kicker of a sub -- replaced weakish AT AS-P400)

Just upgraded my setup as follows:

Yamaha RX-V596RDS to Denon AVR-2311
Panasonic PT-AX100E to EPSON 8350
OPPO DV-981HD to OPPO BD-93

Question/ It now sounds like the speakers are not as well matched with the Denon AVR-2311 as they were with the Yamaha RX-V596RDS -- what speaker brand works best with the Denon AVR??

Right now I have a pair of B&W 805 bookshelf's that are serving in a 2.1 stereo setup. Mainly used for listening to music. Don't watch nearly as many movies as I was once did.

Other speakers (not pictured)

Definitive Tech 600 5.1 for movie watching. Though the 805's do a pretty good job mixing a movie into 2.1 stereo.

Eventually I would like to get a pair of 804 towers and HTM4 to complete 5.1 setup.

I just upgraded my system for the first time since 1989:

Denon AVR-1712

Fronts: Polk monitor 6o series II

Center: Polk CS2

Surrounds: Polk monitor3o series II

Sub: Polk PSW505

Dolby surround sure has come a long way from Dolby Prologic!

Nice Sub! Always liked Energy subs. Very efficient and room filling.

Yes it is. Got it at Cash Anerica pawn for only $100 & it is in excellent shape. Reason why I went with the Samsons is that they are a true bi-amped speaker. Also being recording studio monitors means they should have revealingly accurate response.

Movies & music with this current set-up are an incredible experience time after time, however my ultimate goal is to be fully powered by Seaton, so 4 Seaton Sparks to replace the Klipschs are next in line when funds allow, and then finally an Anthem D2v to replace my Denon 2809 as the final piece of my HT jigsaw!

Oh yes, almost forgot, will upgrade the SubMersives to the HP versions too once avaliable to overseas customers (No it never ends does it!)

Here's some pics of the above setup, the screen is a 130" scope screen. Location is near Melbourne, Australia.

I know you guys want your speaker porn, but I am reorganizing stuff. I'm nowhere near done with my main setup and my bedroom, def done with the computer.

HT: Paradigm Studio 60's, Paradigm CC-590, Emotiva Sub10
Computer: Wilson Benesch Arc's (my recent reason why the HT isn't done)
Bedroom: Axiom M3's, Axiom VP150 (also have a set of B&W 686's that were being used with the comp)

Plan on getting a JL F110 for the computer. I plan on upgrading the bedroom to either the Paradigm S2's or B&W 805D's(if I can find used) since I really don't like the Axioms at all. Main HT I am still debating if I want to upgrade to the Signature Series or just complete it with the Reference series.

All my speakers are PSB.

Fronts: Alpha T1 towers
Center: Image C4 (just got this a few weeks ago)
Surrounds: Century 300i (x2)

The surrounds are 10+ years old and probably the next to replace, but I'm not sure if I want to get bookshelf replacements or maybe switch to dipole.

Here they are. Martin Logan's Electro-Motion Series (Electro-Static Loudspeakers (2), C2 center speaker (1)), Dynamo Series 700 sub-woofer. After that I'll get the two (2) surround sound speakers (FX) and maybe another sub-woofer.

This is my setup in it's current iteration.

Added a second sub ( Yamaha YST-RSW300 ) another pair of surround ( Yamah NS-333 ), new receiver ( RXV-667, I plan to upgrade to an Aventage 3010 eventually )

I also rearranged my $#!+storm of a loungeroom.

My stereo's main use is for surround PC gaming. The tower is in the left corner.

I just added another set of Yamaha NS-6490's to my setup and one thing I noticed is that the newer speakers are lighter than the 1991 models I have so that makes a total of 3 pairs....for a 7.2 setup

Strong or weak in the end we are all dead

Sonus faber Toys for L-C-R
Hsu Research USL-15
Def-Tech Di 5.5BPS in walls for the L-R Surround
Def-Tech BP1.2X for the L-R Rear Surround

Got the JVC Projector from AV Science!

Pictures of the Family Room Theater setup: One of the Toys, the JVC Projector in its little elevator, the front view with the screen up and TV exposed, the front view with the screen down, and the AV Closet that's behind this cabinet.

The Sonus fabers replaced a pair of Def-Tech BP-2004 Towers. I couldn't be happier.

New here...first post.

Klipsch RF7-II speakers, in black, Currently running two channel setup with a simple and older Yamaha receiver. The speakers are extremely efficient and don't require huge wattage to push the audio.

I shopped around for a few months and compared brands, models and eventually retailers. Ended up buying from Acoustic Sound Design out in Vegas. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Will try to post pictures soon.
