Have you noticed a big difference in switching lines? I am considering it as well... I like Energy but am looking for something different this time around I think.

To me, there has been a huge difference. I'm a very big fan of Energy speakers, and I think they all generally have the same sound I've come to enjoy, but switching from the new C-series to the Reference Connoisseur (RC) line has been a great switch.

Took me a while to collect all these discontinued speakers (every speaker except the CR-10 rears in my new setup are discontinued, even the sub), but totally worth it. The sound is MUCH better to me.

Some really beautiful speaker setups here all! I need to stop looking now, because I can't afford anymore purchases.

I'm using Zu Druids for my 2-channel system. For home theater I just switched from Polk Audio to Emotiva's Reference speakers which are on clearance now. I have the ERT-8.3 towers for mains, and ERM-6.2 monitors for center and surrounds. Also using a pair of their Ultra 12 subs. I'm really impressed with the upgrade, and the price just makes it that much better.

Yeah, same here. Those Emo 8.3s/6.3s are a great speaker combo and the clearance price makes them sound even better.

Several sets of XTZ "high end" bookshelves 99.26 with ribbon tweeter assemblies.

Well I have been through about 30 pages of systems, some real beauties out there. Here is my system: I am in the process of getting rid of the front 3 speakers. I am having a hard time choosing between Focal 726V, Paradigm Studio 60's or B & W CM9 or 683's. I do enjoy the sound from the VM1's, but I'm looking for a change to some nice towers as I have been listening to more music these days. I still want to have that nice HT sound though too. Comments would be greatly appreciated.

B&W VM1 Satellite Speakers (All the way around)
Definitive Technology Powerfield 15 Subwoofer
Yamaha RX-A2000 (Just purchased)
Panasonic 42" Plasma
Panamax 1000 Surge Protector
Pioneer CLD-D702 Laser Disc Player
Samsung Blu-Ray Player BD-C6500
Direc-TV HDDVR HR22-100
Harmony 880 Remote

The Cherry stand was just recently made by a wood working friend. It has no legs and is attached to the wall via a French clip holding system (I Love it).

New member here, recently upgraded to "real" audio stuff for my gaming/music/htpc. I picked up a set of Yamaha NSA-3500 speakers for pretty cheap as my fronts and a polk CS1 center. Still deciding on which speakers to get for my rear surrounds as this setup is in my bedroom. Denon AVR-591 for the receiver and a BIC PL-200 for the subwoofer.

Took ownership of these several months ago but only recently got around to taking some decent snapshots. Judged on the whole, with the sub and Audyssey EQ optimized, this system provides an unstrained, full range, expansive sound with a natural sounding and detailed midrange, delicate highs and deep, taught bass. One thing that really appeals to me about the WB speakers is that their drivers are very well behaved and free of any sort of audible resonances or edgy, aggressive distortion I've heard in too many high-end speakers. It makes for an always listenable sound, while still providing the sense of realism and detail you expect from stupid-expensive speakers.

can I ask how much the trinity speakers are?

Don't have any pics, but I have KEF Q900's, Q600C,Q800's for surrounds. All hooked up to an Arcam AVR 600. Things sound good,but I think I will be looking to upgrade soon. Looking for something that will be better all around,for movies,music,and gaming. I also need to look into picking up a sub.

They are in the house but not playing yet. Upgrading from B & W VM1 satellite speakers to towers.

Originally started out with a Samsung HTQ-45 HTIB which I used for about 5 years. Few months ago I upgraded to a Denon DT390XP kit...than a week ago I went with MLT2s from Martin Logan and I'm very pleased Pics in sig!

Hello, this can be a helpful forum. I am new to HT and have a Pioneer SC 35, Klipsch VB 15 has Front R/L and RS/LS and a Klipsch VC 25 for center. I also use my old klipsch 500 satellite speakers for front wide and surround back. I would like to here opions on my use of the satellite. Not sure what to upgrade next. The system is used 90% dvd/tv and 10% music.

There in lies the problem. I have a good hunch if you add a good sub you won't need to upgrade

I watched dark of the moon with a friends setup of iq90's + hsu 3.3 and it was phenomenal.

No prob. $10,500 a pair. About $20K for the 5 channel set-up. Stupid money, in other words.

That's a nice junk a change!! As long as you are happy with how it sounds then I'm sure the "stupid money" aspect doesn't matter that much. Great looking pics btw.

Are my L/R's ok where they are, or should I move them?

How do you like the sound?

If you had a mounting/shelving means, you could experiment with them based off the right channel just inside the door,..and thus the left the same amount off the left of the display also. Allowing a little more room outside the speakers allows for a much more natural sounding acoustic perspective. When they're close to a side wall, destructive interferences take place, and can be a problem.

Just because they'd be closer together, doesn't necessarily mean the image width would be harmed either. You may like the perspective. If not, leave them where they are. Just be mindful not to have adjacent obstructions in the immediate vicinity even with, or in front of them. This causes VER (very early reflections) and other diffractive issues, which may or may not be a problem.

Experiment, generally speakers perform best out in the open, away from elements that diffract, reflect, or otherwise affect the sound-field.


Have fun and experiment!

Hi peoples, I'm brand new in here so I hope i dont p*ss anyone off because i dont even know if im posting in the right place. So sorry in advance.

I have some Community speakers that i ran with my sound system in a club i owned 5 years ago. I have since sold the club and my speakers came home with me. I am trying to sell them but i have no idea what they would be worth today, and I was hoping that someone could help me out.

I have : 2- COMMUNITY, CSX 60-S2 SUBWOOFERS 4 SUBS IN EACH BOX
600W RMS OR 1500W PROGRAM

2-COMMUNITY, XLT 46 SPEAKERS 200 W CONTINUOUS 500W PROGRAM

They are about 9 or 10 years old and were used basically just on weekends for 4 years.
If anyone could tell me what these speakers would be worth today, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance, and if im posting in the wrong place, please let me know so i can move my sorry butt where it belongs. lol

You know it's a great day when you see this...




Check out those little B&W 805's on the stands.... I'll tell you what, between the Legacy Focus SE's and the amp upgrade from the Pioneer SC-05 to a Bryston 14B sst.. it's amazing the headroom I was missing. The new amp is there on the floor. Amp weighs 90 lbs and the speakers are 200lbs each.
