That's quite an eclectic mix of speakers. I like the look of the room though and I imagine the Heresy's sounds pretty phenomenal. How long have you had that DC-1? You don't see too many of those around anymore. Great sound quality though. Do you plan on upgrading to something with HDMI eventually? Or are you ok with it because you only have 2 video sources?

edit I forgot to ask, does your DC-1 have the DD and DTS additions?

edit 2 Nevermind I see it in one of the pictures. Nice, I can imagine how clean everything sounds, especially music.

Yes, quite the mix of speakers, lol. The system was just a 2.1 channel, the Heresy's and Sub, and yes the Heresy's sound great! I then found a great deal at my local HiFi store on the Vienna Acoustics center channel … too good to pass-up. I had the Boston Acoustics … so I figured why not set the room up for watching some movies too smile.gif. I just purchased the DC-1. Sounds nice, still calibrating it to the room. I'm okay with it … with only two sources, just don't need HDMI right now. In my living-room, I do have a new Pioneer HDMI Receiver and full Klipsch Reference series of speakers, etc.

Just saw your edits ... answer, Yes.

Oh man I've been there, done that with the toys lol. Once I got my son a new toybox for his room that stuff stopped. Now I just worry about the random lego or hotwheel I might step on now in the middle of the dark lol.

Very cool klipsch Heresy's. I really like those speaker stands.. I've been keeping my eye out for some quality used klipsch on Craigslist just haven't found the right ones.. Your set ups look great and those Heresy's must sound incredibly.

Thanks for the comments! I'll be replacing the above amps with a single 5ch. soon. And, yes the Heresy's sound wonderful, especially with the addition of the sub.
