Thanks, I try to be as much as I can - just wish I had a larger room to work with, but a small dedicated one is better than none...

Nice DIY cables by the way. I made mine also, much cheaper and works the same.

Big thanks

For the room size
We all have to work budget and room size, and I would say you did just fine with sound threatment.

I did spend lots of money for only2-3 feets (6-7 diferent banana plugs, also quit a few diferent sleeve and 3 diferent speakers cable to find the best one for my need).
Lots of money but the end result is worth-it, just like spending a few hundred for Outrigers for look and stability.

Well, I have to say they look clean and nice (I didn't use any sleeves on mine, was fine with the look, but did use locking banana plugs also).

Thanks for the comment - all the sound treatment was due to the small room (and some think I'm crazy for doing 11.2 in such a small room, but it's still effective and fun!).

I didn't notice the outriggers at first, but now they really pop out. Are they from Soundocity (http://soundocity.com/products.html)? I had looked into getting some for my towers (noticed you also put them on your center stand) to make it easier to level and adjust. My speakers come with their own version of outriggers but are a PAIN to adjust (like most speakers, you have to do it from the bottom). I may have to get a couple pairs for mine! If you see the one's on the bottom of my towers, you can tell they are hard to adjust. The stands for satellites are easy to adjust though, they have long spikes and are tri-pod bottoms so very stable.




It might be more visible in the darker pic (upper one is with a bright flash). Someday I need to change out the carpet and put dark carpet in there. All speakers are from the NHT Classic series.



I don't want to clutter up by adding more pics since it's easily in my profile like you found.

Thanks again!

I think you did great for your room!
I did notice lots of sound threatment, and like I said , we all have things to work aroud (room size, I my case it was the floor concrete with 2 heavy carpet over each other, and this why I needed 2 more amp for the Buttkickers for chair since the bass will transmit anything to the chair).

And yes they are from soundocity and though, why not not for center speaker stand.
Quit expensive but they are worth it due to the nice craftmaship.

I'll join the fun.

L/R: EMP TEK e55ti towers
Center: EMP E56ci center.
Side Surrounds: Sony MBH-100 (bookshelf speakers)
Rear Surrounds: KLH 911b's
Sub: BIC F12.
AVR: Denon 2112ci

I've been working the last two years on upgrading my speakers, so far I've completed the front sound stage and the sub (though in due time I'm planning on upgrading the sub again). This year I'm going to turn my attention to the surround speakers. I'm leaning heavily towards the Monitor Sliver FXI speakers for the side surrounds, and likely the EMP e5bi speakers for the rear surrounds. When all that is done I would like to trade up the sub to a HSU or SVS model, but that's a few years off.

Thread is pointless without a picture right?




I know the wires are a bit messy, this picture was taken a few minutes after I installed the center channel, and I hadn't yet cleaned things up. I'm going to clean it up this weekend, and then possibly start a thread over "show off your gear" board.

i have EPOS M% speakers purchased second hand & i have been told they have wrong tweeters  can anyone help with the color they should be, i have told gold color & silver color , did they use both, thaks in advance

post #3322 of 3367
It would be helpful to give a number rather than a % after the M as they have many M series also do a search as most reviews show pictures. Consider also e-mailing manufactures support they should be happy to give you the data.

In my opinion, the best speakers I have ever heard are Sonos. Sonos even sounds some what better than Bose to me. I have never heard such quality in my music like the Sonos Music System. I have only bought the Bridge & the $199.99 speaker & it sounds awesome. Just from one speaker it sounds like a full fledged system from back in the day. I am really impressed with them. I would like to get the expansion bridge for the rest of my audio equipment. That is $349.99. I just got the internet bridge & one speaker to start out for $250.00. I would greatly recommend Sonos to everyone. They are somewhat expensive but not thousands of dollars to what some music fans spend. They really make your house or apartment look modern & futuristic. I love them smile.gif.

My son has the same Sonos system as you. Save up for the Sonos Sub, It will add even more depth to your music. and welcome to AVS,
You have come to the right place for "Bose Jokes"... (I love humor smile.gif)

Here's my 1971 vintage 901's.
These are Series I. I updated the EQ with a new set of caps.
These had the fabric surrounds that never seem to deteriorate.

This is my second system in the living room. Have since sold off all of the Carver separates in the rack.
Yes that's an old Sony 27" tube TV. Weighs a ton.
