I have a bunch of random speakers set up in no particular order. The thing I was most curious about is whether my Mirage speakers were any good. Here's what I have:

Mirage - SM-.5 (center and rear surround)
Pioneer - not sure of the model..old school 70s floor models (left & right surround)
Soma - also not sure of the model but huge floor models (left & right front)

I'm going to get Paradigm Cinema Series speakers but this will do for now..even though it's ugly as sin.

Any idea on the Mirage speakers? Are they worth keeping?


I also have a Logitech sub woofer from the 560 series (computer speakers) hooked up to the headphone jack in the front..I tell ya..worst set-up ever!

Yea I would like to buy one...by brother has the Fatalaty (sp?) one but I have a laptop so I need a USB one. It's OK though because I have a good DVD player that does well with movies.

Cinema center
Vingette sides
Depth Sub

I love high notes and these sound great. The cinema cener is VERY directional. If you stand up, the sound is totally different. Thinking of trying to maximize thier out put. I have a Denon 4806 reciever wich seems to have enough power but im not really good at tweeking settings ( fear factor).
Any thoughts on good sound proofing panels that dont cost too much?

My home theather system is Sony with 100 watts per channel.
Receiver STR-502
DVD player DVD-NC600
Subwoofer and 5 cutes speakers

I currently bought a pair Polk RTi10 from acousticsounddesign for my front speakers. I'm going to replace a center and surrounds as well. This a right decision I've made to upgrade my system. Sounds from new speakers are awesome. I don't think I need a new sub for now since the RTi10 are good enough for me.

we are just finishing a remodel . We are going to purchase in -ceiling speakers for the family room ( 19 feet long by 17 feet wide - 8 foot ceilings), the living room , dining room and our master bedroom.

In our family room and bedroom we are gong to have 46 inc LCD panel tv's .

We need to buy speakers and other equipment . I'm do not know what to buy.
We would like the best speakers to be in the family room where we watch the most TV and listen to music.

However, we would like to be able to be able to watch to the TV in the family room while someone else can listen to music in the living room or dining room at the same time. Any suggestions for speakers and other equipment to buy???

Going to replace the Klipsch with the 250s, and put 360s up front. Not sure yet if i'll keep the Klipsch hooked up for 7.1 or not.

Heres a quick pic, need to figure out what to do with all those cords...

Very nice looking setup. The cable/wire management is a problem isn't it? I've got a similar situation... For now, I just push all the cables/wires together and bunch them up against the wall. Effective, practical cable managementK!

My understanding is that you want your mains and surrounds to be as close to ear level as possible. I suppose it depends on your personal preference and what will work for your situation though.

Dear Folks:

I have a set of Polk M10 bookshelf speakers, purchased for less than $100 at Circuit City.

They are neat, small, and have a quality feel. Not perfect as a main set, but with a subwoofer pretty good. Overall, I feel the little speakers lack "punch."

Looking for a second set for an adjacent room. Not sure if I will use this opportunity to upgrade the M10's in the main room.

Merry Christmas!

Coming from old Bose 901's (great speakers)
gifted myself...

Ascend 170SE RL stereo

STF 2 (maybe times 2)

Panny 57

May put my second 170's on B RL so I can play all 4 in stereo. These new recievers are painful, however modern.

Party on!

New here - too scared to post that I have an Acoustimass 15 speaker system (gulp)

But I hope I can redeem myself with a pair of Acoustic Energy Aegis 3's that I have.

Will phase out the Bose stuff when funds allow but for now am thinking about integrating them with the Aegis 3's into a 7.1 setup - not sure if it'll work.

Give me a while before I pluck up the courage to ask that question...

btw: first post!
