post #2461 of 3365
My complete stereo, when I first posted I had just bought a new 5.1 speaker pack, now I have the extra surrounds, second sub and new amp as well as custom built speaker stands.

Please excuse me for being content with my stereo that didn't cost $10k/s

Besides a likely receiver upgrade in a few years. I'm good for a long time.




I have my PC hooked up to said setup although the tower is out of sight. There are more 7.x PC games than I realised...

I bet Trent sounds pretty good on that system. I've got 2 Energy CF-70's, but I still need to pick up a receiver and sub. Then I can rock some NIN

It really does sound amazing. I was dubious as to the 'boost' in quality going from my 'Beside you in time' DVD to Blu-Ray given how good the DVD audio was compared to most other music DVD's, but there was still a massive boost.

It's a shame you can't get pure DTS-MA audio blu-rays or something, 2 channel 16bit music cd's are a bit sad nowadays...

I have been away from this board for a couple of years and am looking to upgrade audio, but how does Hsu currently rate with the AVS crowd?

I have that exact same speaker setup except that I have only one sub(YST-SW315) . (IMO) It's hard finding something of similar quality at even close the price of the NS-series. What AVR are you using? I'm using a RX-V1800 and I'm loving the soundstage these puppy's deliver

For this large room, I honestly think pro-audio + acoustic treatments (to prevent reflections) would give a MUCH better result, closer to what you would hear with those speakers in a smaller room. I'm not saying your speakers are in any way bad, and they may even sound decent in this room, but this room to sound really, really good, you'll need more SPL output capability and room treatments.

Kenwood JL-690s, Polk CS-1, HSU VTF1, KLH cheapos.
I also have a pair of Polk Monitor 7s for vintage system #1 and Pioneer HPM-100s (200 watt version) for vintage system #2

I haven't seen any ATC speakers in this thread. I use three of them across the front:-



They are fully active with three amps in each speaker. ATC make everything themselves apart from the tweeter.
I use a pair of Genelecs for the rears.

ATC=superb

There are several mfrs with 3" dome mids, well this one is the real deal.


Thanks for the pic

Upgrading to the Paradigm Reference set:

2 S8 Fronts
1 C5 Center
2 ADP3 Surround (still waiting delivery)
2 ADP3 Rears (still waiting delivery)
1 Sub 25- (biting the bit for another)

Hooked up right now to the Pioneer SC-09, great system and very well worth the time and wait. Lol

Bravo! Fully active speakers with a large-treated dome midrange. That must sound VERY smooth!

I recently upgraded my system from Atlantic Technology 8200e's to Triad Platinums.


(Those are Seaton Submersives HP's between the Triads. There is a 3rd Submersive in the back.)



To put it mildly, the Triads ROCK!

What? No reason...just curious...

I bought the system used and it came with a CC. If I'd have had the choice, I would have gotten a 3rd LCR, but beggars can't be choosers.

I did speak to Paul Scarpelli about the CC, and he assured me that the crossover to the midrange drivers is low enough that lobing is not a big issue. l gotta say, I don't have any issues with the horizontal CC now that it's on the stand.

I had a friend and forum member, DMark1 make the stands for me. I "helped" (read: "Shop Lackey and Gopher"), but he was the designer and builder. He does incredible work. He also builds drum kits in his spare time: http://www.markleycustomdrums.com/index.htm

The stands were designed to get the tweeters all at the same height, and you can see from the pic's that it was indeed successful.



I also added Triad Silver Monitors for the surrounds. I got 2 pairs and placed one in the Wides positions and one in the Side Surrounds position. Here's one of the Wides:



The are not at the "recommended" 60 degrees, but they are in the only place they *can* be in in my room. I posted some listening impressions in the Triad owners thread:

Oh boy. You have a speaker with (unarguably) top-3 (in the world) midrange driver (scanspeak with slit-cone). If you are going to have a world class speaker like THAT in your home, you better FIND a way to position that surround speaker to the side of your listening position. Hire a contractor if you have to and get a ceiling pole-mount installed to hold that surround. That kind of install position is embarrassing and I want it fixed now.
