Hey all, lots of nice speakers listed here....

Main 2ch setup
Clearfield Continentals which were Von Schweikert's when he worked for Counterpoint in the 90s
or
Dynaudio 82s

2nd 2ch setup
JM Labs Tantal 509s

3rd 2ch setup
Polk Monitor 30 Series II

3.1 A/V setup
Paradigm mini sats and old sub
Infinity Beta Center

HT setup
Mains - Dynaudio 82s (swap the Clearfields in and out)
Rears - Dynaudio 42s
Center - Dynaudio 122C
Sub - Mirage Omni 12

I utilize my main 2ch setup while running the HT so Fronts can be the 82s or Continentals, whatever I have in play at the time.

A few pics

I've got Magnapan 3.7's. Love em'.

I just wish they had deeper, harder hitting bass. But they do almost every thing else so well, I can't find a suitable replacement for them.

Maybe add a sub?

Yeah, I've tried that. But it never sounds right to me.

I had the same impression when just running the Philharmonic 2s on their own, but with the 2 SVS PB12 Pluses they sound fantastic.

Let me begin by stating I have always loved music, being new to this about 10 years ago I bought a Sony receiver and speaker package. Later upgrading pieces at a time like any college student. Jump to about 3 years ago I purchased and Onkyo TX-SR806 and 2 Polk VM 30s and a Polk CS20 center with Bose 301 rear and side speakers with Polk PSW505 sub. I have slowly phased out my Bose speakers. I current system has 2 Polk VM30 front 2 Polk rt1000 for side 2 Polk rt800 for my rear, CS20 center, polk psw505 sub. I purchased the vm30 for the design and clarity like most other owner you need a good sub to go with it. So I connected a small 150 watt Polk sub to the vm30 via the speaker wire from the receiver then it goes to the vm30 to "create" full band front speakers.
My question is as follows I have a Polk cs400 center would sound better with my system?
I also have another set of Polk rt1000 in my bedroom with Polk rt/ fx surround powered by my onkyo TX-SR606 the cs400 is from the bedroom where sound isn't as important.
I was also considering moving the vm30 with the small sub to the bedroom and moving the rt1000 to my living room. So my living would then have 4 rt1000 and 2 rt800 stil not sure which center the 20 or 400.
I think my living room would then be a bit low end heavy.
I welcome any and all suggestions.
Thank you in advance.

Wrong thread my friend. You'll want to post this in the speaker section, this thread is to show off systems.

Arcam AVR600, which does a damn-fine job. I will most likely be adding amps down the road, though.

Very nice!! Props for having your center at the proper height (you did better then me on that) and for not having your Onkyo in the cabinet so it can breathe

Looks great.

cheers

We got lucky with the center channel since our TV stand is the perfect height. All of that stuff used to be on the inside of the cabinet, but since we put the TV on the wall I was able to put it all on top which made me happy. We always had to have all the doors open for air circulation and it was also a pain with our harmony remote having to try to point it, now it works perfectly and no more heat worries (plus it's out of my kid's reach =^).
