Nothing modest about. Great looking set-up and I bet it sounds fantastic.

Again, gorgeous setup!!

Wow very nice. I don't see what is modest about it. I can see how awesome it is though.

Your system is "modest" in the same way a Porsche Cayenne is a modest SUV. That is to say, not modest at all. I appreciate the modesty on your part though but you have spectacular gear. Just because it's not in a true home theater doesn't make it any less so. I love those speakers. Gorgeous. I bet music sounds freakin' amazing. I'm jealous.

Really nice. I can only think about having Krell amps. I guess, I will get of that daydream and get back to the Onko reality.

Very impressive equipment, must off cost a good chunk of $$$$ Denon bluray/Pioneer Elite Kuro = HEAVEN Awesome speakers aswell, I don't know about the look of those three big (amps)? on the ground though,other than that it's sweet.

My systems sounds pretty good but I need to work on room treatment.

The Pass X-1 preamp works well with Krell amps. It takes the edge off yet still sound very dynamic and lively. I am actually considering upgrading to either XP-10 or XP-20.

The Krell amps are pretty big sitting on the floor. I have tried Ayre MX-R amps which are smaller but it just didn't sound right with the Salon 2s.

The XP-20 gets rave reviews from everyone. It's also on my short list of gear to audition. I just need to make some time for another road trip to Reno...

Very beautiful and clean setup, love all the amplification power you got there. How does the hardwood perform for the acoustics, i would guess there would be some reflections?
The carpet you would help some of that i'm sure but generally wondering on how the room sounds.

Pioneer Elite Kuro 151 65" plasma? I didnt know Pioneer made a 65" version of this set?
post #15 of 24
I have the same TV, but mine only came as a 61"...

I also have the same TV. If I knew they made a bigger version of it, I would have picked it. Nice setup by the way rich wu. Nothing modest about it!

Nice, when you look at first reflection panels, also check out bass traps. I recently introduced them in my setup and it made a huge difference in tightening up everything.
