Haven't been on in a while but I've got an A/V bug that I'm trying to work out!
My bedroom HTIB bombed out and I'm thinking of upgrading my Samsung SlimFit TV to a 32" LCD and moving my existing "main home theater" speakers, receiver to my bedroom. (I was just going to go buy another HTIB for $400-500 and be done with it but then I started dreaming.... )
Existing speaker & receiver in living room/main home theater I bought in July 2002 from Aperion.
- Onkyo TXDS797
- 522D 5.1 system
- Btech BT7 speaker mount (would these mounts work for newer intimus or verus rear speakers or should I move them with the 522s rear surrounds as well to the bedroom?)
This leads me to upgrading my living room receiver & speakers. Since I'm very pleased with my Aperions 522s, I'm happy with looking at Aperions again.
I guess I'd like some guidance on these new Aperions (VERUS) that I'm not familiar with now. I'd been trying to keep up with them over the last year but I see a new version that is being shipped soon and how those compare with the Intimus 5 or 6 series.
I don't believe the wife will allow me to have towers so I need to replace my current 522 series with something similar - or that's what I believe as of now.
Just looking at the aperion site, it looks like I'd try going with the following (without comparing the Verus & Intimus yet):
- intimus 6c center
- intimus 6b front L/R
- intimus 5b rear L/R (or maybe even 4b)
- bravus II 10D
and then a new receiver - which I don't know about yet because I haven't had time to research.
My room size is probably 18 X 20 (approximate) and it's not a "home theater setup" - it's a living room and that won't change.
My LCD is a 46" samsung 850 or something like that.
So, what does everyone think about this?
Yes, more expensive than a HTIB but I do get 2 great systems for 2 rooms.
Does the system setup I've proposed make any sense?
