fronts: b&w 605s2
center: b&w lcr6s2
surrounds: b&w 601s2
surround rear: b&w ds6
sub: b&w asw675

for HT, its all about the 605s2's dedicated dual 8" subs in each front speaker. add the 4 8" subs in the fronts in w/ the 10" asw675 and you're home free. i love my ht sound. for music, it sucks.

Fronts - Gradient 1.2
(upgraded to 1.27 - official statement by the original designer Jorma Salmi)
Center & Rears - Chorus AW-6i (kit version of Chorus Compact 662)

This setup works well with music and HT, although the main speakers differ somewhat from the other speakers in terms of phase reproduction. You can hear the difference with panning white noise test. This does not affect movies too much but it is audible with some music samples.

Next upgrade: A good sub.

Not to sound like a Creative salesman, but you'll get so much more out of those speakers if you get an X-Fi....or an Envy24 HT card for that matter.

I have a set of Infinity TSS-750's which include a 150W sub-woofer. But I am seriously considering the Infinity Primus Theater pack (4 Satellites and a center) along with a 300W subwoofer with 12" driver.

Is this a worthwhile upgrade? I heard that the Primus series are better speakers than the TSS series, also, as much as the "modern" look of the TSS series is nice, we have a lot of dark wood furntiure in our living room (mahogany, ebony) and I notice that the Primus series has a wooden encloisiure along with a mesh grating so that people won't have to look at the speakers woofers and tweeters.

I am also looking into getting a speaker system that won't be underwhelming should I move to a bigger home theater space in the near future (currently using about 12' x 12' worth of space within a 12' x 30' area as my "Home Theater" in our condo.

Any advice would be gladly welcomed.

Hey All,
Here is what I have:
Fronts - Paradigm MiniMKII's or 3se-Mini's (no model#)(70Hz - 20KHz)
Rear - Paradigm Atoms (70Hz - 20KHz)
Center - Phantom from the 3se Mini (the WAF on the Paradigm CC-300 was not well received due to size)
Sub - SVS PB10-NSD

I am looking at trying to find a smaller Center to complement my 3SE Minis..Maybe another 3SE??

2nd option is to sell the Paradigms and find 5 speakers of smaller stature but still full sound....

Any ideas?? thx

Front Athena AS-B2
Center Athena AS-C1
Surround Athena WS-100
subs Athena Micra 6 M225 and Harman/kardon SUB-TS8

I Started out with a Kenwood HTIB

Upgraded a few weeks ago to a Pioneer VSX-816S and oppo OPDV971H DVD and Athena micra 6 speaker system and an H/K sub.

Sounded ok, better then the Kenwood but not what i was hoping for after reading all the reviews.

So I then picked up a set of Athena WS100's and put them for front speakers, a little better sound but STILLLLL not what I was hoping for.

So I then got a set of Athena AS-B2's and a AS-C1, put the B2's In the front and the WS100 for surround WOW! it's like a night and day difference i sound. It sounds real good know.

I was thinking of getting a set of Athena AS-F2's and putting them for the front and the AS-B2's for surround, Do you guys think that would make a big difference in sound?

I think I can go one more step yet the little woman's starting to get a little pissed, my upgrading started when we went shopping for a new $100.00 DVD player when the kenwood DVD craped out. I think I'm gona push her over the edge soon l.o.l. going from a simple DVD player to all this with monster cables and wires also

Welp, this is about as close as I'll ever come to owning B&W's, partially because polk helped sony to copy their kevlar mid's. Ive got 7 (soon to be 9) Sony SS-K90ED's, that I love, especially on my budget!
post #418 of 3365
I'm not totally setup with everything yet, since I just bought the rear speakers on Sunday, however, here's what I have:

Front: Polk RT1000P
Center: Polk CS2
Rear: Polk R20

I really like the sound. The powered bass units in the 1000P's aren't truly sub-woofers, but they can push it out pretty well. Maybe I'll get a dedicated subwoofer at some point, but not yet.
