Sub: SVS PB13-Ultra.
AVR: Denon 4520CI
BluRay: Panasonic BMP-BDT210
Plasma: Panasonic TH-65PZ850U (65")
Cabinet: Salamander Synergy


My room is 25 x 25 and I used one side for the HT. Not the best but it ended up pretty darn awesome. I used all Paradigm ceilings.

Paradigm SA-15R for front surrounds and SA-15R-30's for the rear surrounds. The SA-15R is down firing and the -30's are angle fired at 30 degrees.





























I guess those Seaton Cat's left an impression huh? But speaking of Cats, is that one of those specially bread cats mixed with a bobcat?

I have to say that the Seaton Cat 12 is an amazing speaker. If I would have heard one before I bought my Noesis, I may have had some deciding to do. Talk about a speaker that can do it all. Anyone looking for a full range speaker and you do not want the hassle of subs, this is your speaker. Crystal clear highs and pounding deep bass and good looks to go with with it.

Mine never bother the speakers other than siting on top.

Wow! what a beautiful cat you got.
Is it a Bangle?

If the first one was the daughter.
She look like she can have a little bit more of an attitude.
Then again look can be deceptive, my midle one was rescue from a warehouse when he was very young.
But his eyes look like you were looking at the devil. He turn out to be the most loving and pasive cat,

They were in my top 5 when I was hunting for my previous speakers. I think there was a one or two month wait for the Verus, I think because they were new at that time. I did not want to wait and went with the Monitor Audio RX8's. Loved the RX8's, but I like my Noesis better smile.gif

Sorry it took so long to reply, I did miss your post when reading this tread.

In two word, LOVE THEM.
They have a sound that have a very good imaging, well balance and lots of details but never fatiguing.
And the finish is first class.

The new system isn't complete, but I have some of the speakers setup and wanted to post something to motivate me to finish! Just bought some really nice used Paradigm fronts and center to replace my (3) Paradigm Reference LCR-450a speakers that I've had since 1998. I haven't had a HT setup since 2001 as I didn't have a room that would work. The new house has a built in cabinet in the family room - not an ideal listening room but at least I will be able to have a modest HT again.

Front: Paradigm Reference Studio 40 v.4 (Premier J23 stands - old style)
Center: Paradigm Reference CC-590 v.4
Surround: Definitive Technology UIW RSSII
Back Surr: Definitive Technology UIW RSSII
Subwoofers: (2) SVS SB12-NSD





Subs haven't been permanently placed yet, but will probably go against the rear wall as that is my only real option


I have all four of the Def Techs - just need to get into the attic and pull the wire so I can install them!

Hello, first time post.

My speakers are Infinity Primus P363 P163 and PC 153 with a crummy Bic F12 in the living room.

In the bedroom I have much nicer Cambridge Audio S30's and an SVS SB1000.

Here are some pictures:

First welcome to AVS as a member.

I do have a couple of sugestions if you don't mind.
In your living room, I would move the left speaker to the left side of the window to get better imaging and your TV would be more center.
Also I would swap the Bic with the SVS.

Best regards

Ray

Hi Ray!

Thank you for the welcome and feedback. In my official welcome thread Jay1 recommended I do the same thing with the speaker. I found when I have it in the spot you recommend the speaker points near a corner wall, also the wires behind the stand are quite visible when opening the front door unless the speaker is in its current location. I will try it during the baseball game today and see how I like the sound. Thank you!

Also, I love the SVS sub but I'm unclear if it is too small for a 16'x27'x8' room. What are your thoughts?

It is a big room, but I would think the SVS would still do a better job than the Bic.
Try it and see wish one you prefer.

What a great system! You have great taste in equipment - every piece listed is on my short list of equipment I would love to own. Love the KEFs - I bet that center channel speaker is incredible. I'm guessing that the 4BSST2 (I have the same amp) drives the 205s - I'd love to hear them! I had a pair of KEF C40s in my first stereo back in the mid-80s (the ones with dual woofers and vertical stripes on the front baffle) and really enjoyed them. KEF is really hard to find so I haven't heard them since the Q series came out.

Very interested in reading about your ZUMA server - that could be fun to build. You must play all of your source material from it as I didn't see a BD player in your setup. You copy and play 5.1 movies from the server as well?

Do you run the subs while listening to 2-channel? Using the D2V's crossover? Speaking of subs, those 130lb monsters are my dream subs - very nice.

One last question - if you drive the 205s with the Bryston (balanced?) and the remaining speakers with the A5, do you have any issues balancing the front 3 speakers? I also have one channel of a multi-channel amp (ATI 2007) driving the center channel and it seems to have much higher gain than the Bryston.

Again - very nice!

There is no "correct" speaker level for every room, it will be different for everybody. Your manual on page 21 indicates there is an "easy" setup that includes level calibration.

http://download.sony-asia.com/consumer/IM/4418860131.pdf

If you know how to do manual calibration (I don't see it in your manual), you will need to play the calibration tone to each speaker adjusting as you go until they all read the same SPL on your meter. If you don't have a meter download a meter app to your phone or pad.
