Added some new setups in my house.

Main Room: Same as listed a few years back with 2 subs now and changed sources (Marantz AV7005, Oppo BDP-95)
Family Room: Sunfire setup as before, but Anthem D2 and Arcam P1000 amp
Garage: Emotiva UAW 8.2, 20 yr old Denon Integrated amp and squeezebox
Office: Golden Ear Aon 3's with Wadia 151 PowerDAC and 171 iTransport

I'm really impressed with the little Golden Ear setup. Replaced my old Logitech computer setup and couldn't be happier.

I love this stuff!

Harmon Kardon HKTS 18 with matched surrounds for 7.1 setup powered by Onkyo TX-SR706. I'm happy with how it sounds but am looking to upgrade a whole new system. Any suggestions? I'm trying to stay around $3000 at the very most for everything, and hopefully a little cheaper than that...I'm happy with the Onkyo so I will probably stay with that brand, but get the updated version with 3D capabilities. I've been looking at Klipsch for the new surround setup, but am open to suggestions of stuff around the same price point that I should check out. Thanks!

Turn it up!

They'll be driven by an Aventage RX-A2010 which is on the way.

I recently bought a set of klipsch rf-62 along with a polk audio 300watt sub my problem is that I dont think I have enough power to get the rf62s sounding loud, I am currently using a pioneer receiver vsx-926-k the specs are
Power Per Channel - Stereo (RMS)90 W @ 0.08%
Power Per Channel - Surround (RMS)90 W @ 0.08%
Power Per Channel - Stereo (Peak Power)120 W @ 0.05%
Power Per Channel - Surround (Peak Power)120 W @ 0.05%


Im thinking about upgrading to

onkyo receiver
135 W + 135 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz,
0.08%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
160 W + 160 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.1%,
2 channels driven, FTC)


just wondering if this would help these speakers, any suggestions or recommendations on a good receiver at a low cost would really help...

I've seen several pictures in this thread where the center channel is in or on a cabinet. Just a quick suggestion ... pull those speakers forward so the face of the center channel speaker is even with, or slightly forward of, the cabinet or table. You could be surprised with what happens to dialog intelligibility.

You're right Dennis, so many CC optimization problems I see around here quite often. Whether it's diffraction/very early reflection stuff like you mentioned, or poorly aimed too low etc., lack of physical isolation between cabinet and box, etc.

As you stated, so much tangible benefit can gleaned by some simple optimization steps. Just as others have, I've spent many a contribution suggesting these fundamental elements.

Audioengine A2 for my Imac.These are amazing after 20 hour burn in.Almost every piece of music Ive lived with for over 30 years sounds better with things Ive never heard before showing up.Even at whisper soft they sound full and detailed.For 200 bucks they are the deal of a lifetime.

I have a few questions regarding setting up a system. I purchased the Jamo S606 HCS3 speakers, which to me is a steal as far as HT speakers. I also got as a present a Klipsch KSW-10 Subwoofer. First, I would like to know everyones opinion if I made the right decision as far as speakers and Subwoofer. Second, when I connected the subwoofer via monster cable. I connected it from LFE lin-in, to the Subwoofer Pre-Out on my Onkyo receiver. However, I am not able to manually increase the bass or 'crossover' as you call it. It seems that the subwoofer or the receiver seemed to automatically set the frequency. I read that it might be due to the LFE connection. Can I bypass that?

Since we never used our equipment in the past eight years, I finally retired it and went with just a sound bar for tv viewing at this point.

Maybe in the next two years I may decide to hook it all back up. Just did not see a need to have it out and hooked up just sitting and doing nothing.

So sad I'm an old dog and still listen to music daily.

The wife won of course. Right now there is too much on my plate, so it is more of putting together the right 2.1 system, since neither of us want a 5.1 system.

We know what speakers we want, but do not know yet if the receiver will be changed out for soemthing newer. I did manage to talk the wife into a soundbar though.
