post #2701 of 3367
been making changes to my system lately...

Front stage...ed [c] 12 left and right...JTR triple 12 center...emotiva erd's for the four surrounds. Gonna change the to a more sensitive surround - gonna get the ed [c] 6 to replace the erd's.

Eventually change out the ed [c] 12's to all jtr...like the mid bass in the jtr...been very happy with the ed's and gonna keepem awhile. The ed 12's seem to play very nicely with the jtr's.

My set up will be finished when I get my replacement surrounds tomorrow.

As of a couple weeks ago I had an Onkyo TX-SR601 running an Infinity Modulus II system.

After tomorrow when the last pair arrives I'll be running a Pioneer VSX-1021 pushing a pair of Energy RC-10's in the front, a pair in the rear and an Energy RC-LCR as the center. I decided to stick with the Infinity 12" sub from the old setup.

My first home theater in my first home of two years. A simple and humble set up for now.

60" LG 60PZ750 (Ideal-Lume light in back)
Denon AVR-991
Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II
Polk Audio CS2 Series II
HSU VTF2-Mk3 (on a GRAMMA)
Apple TV 2
2011 Mac mini
2009 Mac Pro (media server, not pictured)

The PS3 you see on the floor was returned (boo physical media!) but I may get an inexpensive BluRay player in the near future. I also bought some thinner and more flexible HDMI cables from MonoPrice so I'm going to re-cable the components this weekend. Surrounds will come later after I remodel the second floor and get everything built in.

I followed batpig's guide to setting up my receiver and ran the Audyssey MultiEQ XT setup, but would appreciate any tips that could improve the sound of my system. It sounds great to me since I don't have a point of reference. =)

Very interesting pic. The smallish eD sub driver always seemed perplexing to me. I know it's got mad excursion,..but wow are those things small. Easily, you've got more mid-bass cone area up-front than you do sub cone area in those two subs. I'm always commenting on the importance of bass/mid bass power in the two octaves or so above 60hz. You've got it. Individuals always want impact, and many aren't familiar with where "impact" lies. That system has got some impact.

Nice looking rig there. Any further comments on the eD mains? MF/HF smoothness, extension, capability?

Thanks

I really like the ed's but was looking for more of a mid bass impact and the t12's fit the bill. To compare, was using the t12 as left and ed as right. Really no comparison but not really a fair fight considering the t12's drivers. There just wasn't enough of mid to lower end on the ed's for me but each speaker has compromises. With that being said, the clarity/dynamics of the ed are excellent and a speaker that would satisfy 99% of people for HT use...but Iam gonna go with 2 more t12's when funds are available. I have not been dissapointed with the ed's...for the money, they are an excellent value!

I have mid bass modules now along the seating area but hoping to get rid of those with the 2 more t12's...but the mbm's really hit me in my chest. Currently running mbm's 50-80 and the ed sub 50 and below...if I lose the mbm's gonna crossover 60 and down.

I much prefer the mid bass hit then the lower end...I love that HIT in the chest feel...but I still get plenty of spl on the lower end too and am pretty flat down to 10hz.

Attached are a couple of pics of some speakers I've put together for 2-channel stereo listening. The pic on the left shows 1 of 2 high-end mini-monitors built with PE cabs and SS drivers. The Sonus Faber Extrema was the inspiration. I call them the 'Intimates'. Extreme fidelity and surprisingly strong low end make them a stand alone pleasure to listen to.

The pic on the right is of my "Poor Plumber's Pluto's". Inspired by S. Linkwitz's Plutos. However, that's because I used the same drivers, but designed and buit them in a more conventional 2-way configuration with a transmission line woofer/mid section using 4 inch ABS pipe. Low end support comes from a 10 inch woofer/plate amp located in the base of one of the speakers.

Finally upgraded my TV after 5 years of using my old 32" Hyundai Q321. I went with the LG 55LW5300. I wasn't looking for a 3D TV originally, just wanted something around 55", but after looking at the specs and the price of non-3D TV's, it was hard to pass this up especially since it came with a cheap blu-ray player and 4 pairs of glasses.

Full specs:
2 x Klipsch RF-82 II (front)
2 x Klispch RF-52 II (rears)
Klipsch RC-62 II (center)
2 x Klispch RS-52 II (surrounds)
2 x Klipsch RW-12D
Onkyo TX-SR608
LG 55LW5300
I jokingly said to my gf I need to upgrade the RF-82 II's to RF-7 II's since they look so small next to the screen and she didn't seem too amused lol. Now i just need to get back behind the stand and organize the cables some.

Still "rocking" a pair of B&W V201s from 1992 or 93 and an audio source 15" sub from 1999.
Awesome I know.

Building a new house and will have a media/theater/TV room. Planning to have at least a 65" TV and really want an 80".

Will have at least 5.1. Undecided at this time as we're still 6 months out from completion.

I will say though that my old 201s still sound really good. They have a wonderful sound stage and excellent imaging.

I highly recommend the Mitsubishi SXRD projection TVs.

They have a 65" and a 73" and the picture quality is excellent; as good as it gets (plasma is supposed to be better...I don't think so). I have the 60-inch, which cost $1100. The 73 ' is currently going for about $1500 and they even have 82" and a 92" (for about $4300).

Prices are very good; check on Amazon.

The only downside on them is replacement of the lamp every two or three years for $100.

Hey all, just thought I would share my current set up, 7.1.
Monitor Audio
RS6
RSLCR
SFX x 2 pair
SVS cylindrical sub (25-31PCI I think)
Onkyo SC885P pre/pro
Rotel RMB-1075, powering centre and surrounds
Parasound Halo A-23 for mains
Oppo BDP-83 SE, using multi channel for audio

I have only had the Parasound for 2 weeks but I am loving the pairing with the RS-6. Previously I had a Bryston 4B which I found to be a little flat, lifeless. Tried an Emotiva XPA-3 which I found to slightly harsh. The Parasound is very open and clear with better bass than I previously had with the RS-6.
I am thinking of trying a pair of RX-8 if I find them on sale but happy right now with this setup.
cheers,

Wanted to share my setup as well - A 5.0 HT at the moment
Front: Monitor Audio Sliver RX2
Center: Silver RX Centre
Rear: Silver RXFX
Driven by a Denon AVR 1912 (European Model)
Can't decide on the Sub - had my eyes on a SVS PC-12 NSD cylinder but too expensive in Europe, so still looking. RX2's have quite some bass so not to much in a hurry.
