Mr.Poindexter is the only one so far with a Phase Technology set up.

I have Phase Tech:
Front: PC 9.1's & PC 3.1
Rear: DST surrounds

Don't need a sub yet. Those SVS's seem pretty tempting though.

JamesCB,

The HSU sounds pretty good with the Phase Technology system. What do you mean, don't need a sub yet? You either need it or you don't. While I have not played around with the PC series, the Teatros need a sub. My old Infinities do not. Unless you are moving to a larger room where you need more bass output, if you need one in the future, you need it now. Perhaps you are meaning to say that you are not looking to buy a sub yet, but will be.

While I don't have pictures of my new theater up in my gallery, I do have my old system in the living room in my gallery.

If Glade is the devil, who does that make me?

Dynaudio Contour 3.3s would make you the envy of many a HT enthusiast! You should have written "Please let other's be content with their speakers and not be curious or jealous of mine."!

Funny, around here I feel like I'm a bottom dwelling cheap-o, but my wife and friends can't believe that I needed to spend $1500 on speakers. Is no one else as sane as me?

I'm cheap too, but I seem to be slowly (or quickly rather) losing my mind. I'm seriously considering new mains to replace my M22ti's.

I think the W.H.O should look into upgraditis - it seems far more rampant and dangerous than SARS ever thought of being.

Only if you tell me how you plan to keep on top of Sharon Stone.

Edit-- Your speakers have nothing to do with it .

Yes, but over a tiny domain and rarely exercised.
The wife once suggested that I use headphones instead of the 10 Wilsons when going solo.

Don't worry, I am sure the lord of the dark is puddy in the hands of his wife too .
post #51 of 1292
Hey now, I resemble that remark! I am the king of the castle until my wife get home. I don't have to listen to her if I don't mind sleeping on the couch.

What is amazing is that she would actually have me get Martin Logans if she could have her way. I have not yet seen a pair of E2 Statements for sale used. If I do, she very well could have her way...

I am currently enjoying a pair of Royd Doublets. A small floorstander from England - handbuilt and tuned. Has a wonderful, balanced, and dynamic sound.

It looks like I'm not the only one running two channels. I'm using a pair of Ohm Walsh 2 speaker I bought in 1982. I still like 'em.
post #54 of 1292
Argh, now to try to remember all of them ...

Main System:

Von Schweikert VR-4 with VR-5/7 mods (when listening to stereo, rest are turned off)
Von Schweikert LCR-35 center
Von Schweikert VM-2 sides
Axiom M2i rear centers
SVS 16-46 CS+ sub

Bedroom, Main:
Spica TC-60's

Living Room:
Ohm H large bookshelf speakers

Bedroom 2:
Paradigm Atom's

Bedroom 3:
Linaeum Extremes (small 2-ways from defunct company)

Office:
Radio Shack Optimus Pro LX-4 with Dick Olsher mods

Basement:
Jamo, forget the model, small floorstanders made in 1980s

Scattered around in basement for testing:
Two pairs of Radio Shack Minimus 7's

And then there are 4 sets of computer speakers.
And 5 pairs of headphones

I think that is it.

As you could guess, there is an equally long list of amps, preamps, and receivers.
