Fronts -> Athena AS-F1.2's
Center -> Athena AS-C1
Surrounds -> Athena AS-R1.2's
Sub -> Klipsch RW-12D

Receiver -> Onkyo TX-SR508 soon to be -> Denon 3312CI arriving tomorrow!

Display -> 65'' Panasonic Plasma 65ST50

I'm starting to look at a speaker upgrade to go with the new Denon. I'm thinking maybe Polk RTI's if anyone has any recommendations!

In order of acquisition:

epi 100 walnut - My dad bought these new in early 1970. Gave them to me in the 80s. Good working condition when put into storage in 1988. Also still have the Kenwood KR-3200 receiver that drove them (and all the original manuals)

Boston Acoustics SubSat6
- Bought these in 1988 for my primary music listening powered by NAD 2100 amp. Used in college room, still used in family music/TV room. Recently re-foamed the 4" driver surrounds. Still sound great. Only online info I can find is on page 25 of this pdf.

Infinity Qe
- I think I was given these from a guy in college who didn't want them anymore. Used them in my 'studio' for a bit from before I got the Events. Unused since mid-90s.

Event 20/20bas - Powered monitors. In 'music room / bedroom studio': These I use for both nearfield as well as blasting music through the whole house. Purchased in 90s, used near daily ever since.

RCA STS-520. Purchased at RadioShack. Wanted average cheap speakers to test my mixes on. Also used in living room to play records driven by the Kenwood KR-3200

Outlaw LFM-1 Plus
subwoofer - Got this in last week. Current used with the above SubSat6 3 piece system in TV/family music room.

Cambridge Audio S30 - Expected to arrive today to use with the Outlaw and replace the Subsat6

I'm looking to get Monitor RX series. Just curious why you decided to go with RX-1 surrounds instead of RXFX. I'll most likely be buying RX1 (or maybe RX2) fronts, RX Center, and RXFX rears. So I'm just a bit curious on your thought process.

I got rid of, my Haf-x and went back to my Antec 300 as despite the fact that it was smaller, it also runs quieter and cooler.
My GTX 670 sounded like a leaf blower in the haf x but as it runs cooler the fan doesn't ramp up as much.
How do you like your speakers?
I love mine and since the receiver upgrade it's been night and day.
I can watch live music blu rays at -10 db with zero distortion whereas before it would start to distort and anything under -20...

Yeah quite happy with my speakers so far. Ns777 perform well for my budget and room setup. I did upgrade the center to a psb image c5. Massive difference. Also picked up another rsw 300 sub. For my pc sound I auditioned a pair of psb image b6 and I gotta say they leave the ns333 for dead. Wouldn't mind upgrading my bookshelf 333's to the b6's. Just wondering if there is any real gain from my current onkyo tx nr609 to a higher end receiver.. not quite sure what to look for...

HI, I would to change mine 130W floorstanding 3way Indiana Line Arbour 5.02 to somethink more smooth in high with clean and smooth bass and a warm on voices and music.
I would to buy the SF Toy but don't know how they sounds and for space problem, Monitor that are smaller are better for my 16mq room.

Does the Toy Monitor sounds differently that Toy Tower? I heard that the bookshelf sounds more crispy on the tweeter and that toy tower is much more smooth and soft on trebles with a bug on midtrebles.

let me know

Hi everyone, I just signed up a minute ago after discovering this thread. There's a lot of sweet set-ups here but nothing that compares to mine. Prepare to drool..........

Mains: JBL 4800's (new in 1995 maybe?)
Center: JBL SC305 (just as old as the mains)
Subwoofer: JBL Northbridge E 150P (my most modern speaker)
Surrounds: JBL Pro Performers (they predate the mains and center)

How's that for a state of the art speaker system? Believe me, it was pretty cool 15 or 20 years ago but I'm thinking an upgrade might be in order. My display and receiver are fairly current though; LG 55LW5600 3D TV and a Denon 1613 a/v receiver. At my upgrade pace I'll probably only keep those until 2035 or so before upgrading to a whole house interactive holographic display with direct neural audio implants........by JBL of course.

I just picked up a pair of northridge n28 I think bookshelf speakers the other day for 10 bucks. I agree with you upside. that model line does sound pretty good.

I'm looking to replace so very old pioneer surround speakers. I need 4 to completely replace all of them. My current speakers are close to 20yrs old. Not looking to spend a lot, less than $150 if possible

Hard to beat the oldies but goodies for the price. Everything is so expensive these days.

My post was meant in jest. I bought the mains (4800's) a long, long time ago mainly to listen to old school rock and roll at extreme volumes. They served that purpose well and as I grew older they morphed into a home theater set up. These speakers were built before home theater was even a blip on the radar so they're really not capable of handling the nuances of the current technology. Watch a bass heavy blue ray and they're great but man, that's all that comes through is the bass, mids and upper tones are non-existent including the dialogue.

So I'm looking to upgrade the mains and center for now and any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm by no means an "audiophile" but I also detest the home theater in a box route, I guess I'm somewhere in the middle. To give you an example, a buddy of mine has a set-up with Polk tsi 400's as his mains with a Polk something for the center, I'm not sure about his sub or surrounds but to me it sounds beautiful. Any reason that I shouldn't go out and pick up a pair of 400's with a matching center?

Sold my JTR's and built some DIY SEOS-12 waveguide speakers using the DNA-360 CD and the TD12M mid woofers. Using three of these behind a 107" wide curved AT screen. Subs are currently being reworked. Three DIY sealed 18" up front using Meal-X 18" and two Stereo Integrity 18's. Back two corners will have two TC Sounds 12's, also sealed. Will take some more pics once I have subs finished, behind screen lighting kit and new seating in place (two or three weeks). Here are pictures, when in temporary location. Now they are behind the screen.

Here's the set-up I've had for a few years. I thought about cleaning up but decided that's not really accurate to how I use the room.

Panasonic Viera 42in z80.
2x Polk rti4
1x Polk csi3
Velodyne vrp-12
Onkyo 506
Verizon Fios for tv with 1tb external
PS3 for games, music, movies
Xbox 360 for more games!

And my laptop just for good measure.

All in a tiny 11x10 room which is a perfect fit for my ikea chair. wink.gif

I've finally graduated with my MFA and by the end of this year I'm hoping to be in the middle of upgrading and in my own place. Slowly narrowing down my search to either a Goldenear Triton Three based system, Aperion Verus grand system, or a Monitor Audio silver line. Itching to upgrade! I blame all of you.
