PS3 Pics - Apartment Setups - Page 3

post #61 of 1293
Hey lcjrodriguez what wall plate is that for your ipod touch??? And how exactly do you have it incorporated to your setup? It seems like a great idea and looks cool too!

I thought some of us out there who live in an apartment may benefit by having pics of apartment specific setups posted. I am gonna insert my own (in progress) setup...and hopefully we can get something goin here.



Got a speaker wire and the wire for the backlight that need to be hidden...



That's a 1978 Sansui cabinet loudspeaker: very old but its got two 8" woofers [up and down firing] and a tweeter still sound pretty good, though not sonicly matched with the CC.



Velodyne sub







Hey, what kind of stand were you using for the centre speaker above the TV? I am currently researching speakers, and my TV stand won't allow me to have the centre speaker on top of it, in front of the TV. I will need to somehow get it on a speaker stand, above the TV like yours.

Man I tell you...I battled with this problem for some time before I finally came up with my own solution. Its a floating shelf behind there.

You can find more than the 12" one I am using pretty cheap at Target. I am sure other stores sell em, but that's where I got mine.

Here is my humble apartment setup. I have seen some awesome set ups in this thread. I have a 5.1 set up for now, and the receiver will be upgraded from the 5960 to the 863 or the 1800 within a month. That will allow me to get rid of the crappy hdmi switch. It's a pretty straight forward Yamaha set up with 555's, 444's, and a 333 center. Mirage Omni S-10 sub carries the lows. The plan is to buy a house within a year, and for this tv to become the bedroom tv, and the 32" sony lcd in the bedroom to become the kitchen tv, and then to upgrade to a large flat panel for the living room - thats the plan anyway.

Thanks for this thread guys I've been reading AVS for years and get a 'lil tired of the flaunting of the gigantic bedrooms with 50" units and 10-12' viewing distance. Fortunately some of us don't have this luxury. Living in a downtown condos has it perks but a gigantic bedroom or seperate media room isn't one of them. BTW can't take pics of setup because in the midst of renovation.

Nice setup, what stand are you using? I am assuming that is a Sony A2020, what size if I am correct?

I have similar stand.. its not Sony.. You can find it at your local best buy!
post #69 of 1293
It's actually a sanus stand and it goes for about $250.00, I got the silver one to match my a2000 in silver. I like it alot, I wish I would've gone black. It's looks very elegant. Sweet setup, very similiar to mine.

iamitman...are those ssf7000s? Are you enjoying 'em?
post #74 of 1293
Thanks for the compliments. Yea, the tv is a 50" Sony A2020, and I love it. You guys nailed the stand - and I choose to go gloss black to match my piano black speakers (the picture does not do the speakers justice). Some really great looking set-ups.

Does anybody find their tower speakers to be too much for a small space? (I'm in the basement of a condo and would like a new set.)
post #76 of 1293
nope, but not sure if I would go much larger in my apartment, but I haven't had any complaints because the walls are very thick and well insulated. Get what fits the room, if you get speakers too big that you can't fit a tv in between, you have some problems.

I have been looking at some 683's like yours at my local dealer and i like them quite a bit. How do you personally rate their overall Music/HT performance? And how do you like the matching center?

Man, looks great. Awesome setup, but the the right speaker's further away from the screen than the left
My wife calls me "Monk", but I don't mind
I gotta have my speakers the same distance from the back wall and screen otherwise I go nuts!

This is my humble apartment system. There's not a lot to look at, but it's neat and tidy and does the job just fine. PS3, Panasonic Th-42PX60U, 5.1 Paradigm's, Yamaha RX-V1500 (soon to be 1800 or 3800). Sounds great to me when I need it to.

Why did you point that out I'll have to fix that.

i love them so far. Like i posted earlier, they are pretty detailed and a little on the bright side. Pretty tight bass. I'm gonna bi-wire them soon and see how they sound. The matching center is great. I was using the centers and the 685's for the fronts before purchasing the 683's, so they got some breaking in already.

If you like the B&W setup, before you pull the trigger you owe it to yourself to sit and listen to some Totem's. I was, and still am, a huge fan of B&W, but at the price point you are talking Totem has some amazing speakers that have a smaller "More apartment/condo" friendly footprint. And when you look at the speakers and listen to them, you will scratch your head wondering how they were able to get such great range and power from such a small speaker. Not to mention the cabinets are far nicer, imo.

Check this out:

These speakers would make any Audiophile happy. Just food for thought.

Love your setup man. This is going to sound a bit silly but I dig the color you picked for your family room - any idea what brand/color it was? Is that a flat finish?

Getting ready to buy a house so I'll be decking out my family room and so far yours is closest to what i'm going for myself.

Just want to say thanks to everyone for posting in the thread. I was skeptical at first whether it would pick up steam or not (given the other thread) but it appears I underestimated the number of HT junkies who live in apartments.

Keep it going guys...all great setups. (FYI, new pics and components coming from me shortly).
post #88 of 1293
heh, to wallmount or not to wallmount, that is the question.

Problem is, my 46" 1080P screen is already 7.5' away from the couch. I wallmount, and it gets pushed back another foot or so.

Yes I know, Xbox 360 guide...but I have all 3 systems so I figure it's ok to post here.
