Wish those were in my area. I'd be on them like stink on doo doo.

Man, I look at those and yes, I kinda get a little nudge inside to search and plan biggrin.gif

Zane over at Polk forum is in the process of restoring a pair, but......my hopes and wishes, is to own a pair of SDS SRS1.2TL for a dedicated 2ch room

Could someone please tell me which center speaker will be compatible with this setup

Fronts :2x TSi400
Sides & Rears : 4x R150
Receiver : Sony STR-DH720

I see a deal for CS2 series II in newegg for $95. is this compatible with the above setup and how will it be using this ?

TIA

The CS20 and CS10 are the exact match for your TSi mains.

The CS2, CS1, 15C and 25C will match well enough sonically but will look slightly different aesthetically compared to your TSi mains.

I'm not on alot but always down to game..

Lol I am a BEAST on all of them hehehe. For a while (Halo 2 & 3) I ran with a bunch of the nationally ranked guys but then I got married and it was hard to play that much.

My GT is RabidPuppy. Had it since the Original Halo back when you didn't have a Mic to play lol.

I wanted ALittleBoy or TheGreenGiant but it wouldnt let me use those. RabidPuppy was one of the options so I snagged it.

I'm about to grab 2x70s (fronts), 2x60s (rears) and 1xCS2 for $600 shipped, all currently on sale with free shipping at Newegg, but wanted to check in here first to see if anyone has advice one way or the other. Driving all of it with an Onkyo 818. No sub(s) currently, but the room is wired (in-wall) for 2 subs if I choose to add them later. Room is also wired for two side surrounds (would need to be mounted in or on walls near ceiling). Thanks!

Okay Polkies,

 

I'm just setting up a 2.1 (possibly 3.1) system in our new place that we moved into a few weeks back. I have to work within a small budget - I'm thinking the best bang-for-my-buck will be used speakers.

 

I've found two options for roughly the same price. Both are new/used (one of each was taken out of the box to look at, the other is still new). My options: TSi-400 towers or Monitor 60 towers

 

The TSi-400's are 50 bucks more than the 60's... Help me pick between the two!!!

Thanks.

Mine is Juicy McJesus. I've had Halo 4 since it first came out but have never played it.

Thanks.

The TSi400's and Monitor 60's are basically the same speaker with some cosmetic difference....get whichever is pleasing to your eye at the price you want to pay for.

LOL, I like the name. Add me.

I hope to spend some real time playing it with my Uncle over the 10 day thanksgiving vacation we have with them. That and maybe my uncles brother in law (we are all between 30 - 33 and played all the Halo's)

I think this is the guy who sold me that old Ford Pinto I bought last year. He's very good at his job.

I think once he gets em he wont want to let em go. I have been looking for a place to listen to them as if they are as good as folks say I might be swapping out my LSi's for a full 5 channel set of those puppies.....

I'm really interested in listening to them. They'd have to be purty darn good to out do the 107/2's but you never know till you get there. I'll let you know what I think of them. For the price I'm getting them for I think I can make a bit of a profit selling them so I'll get some free listening time.

Yup. If I wouldnt take a horrible hit on my LSi's I would be more prone to sell and get something new in the house. But at 699 each the fronts alone would cost more than I could probably get out of my entire 5 channel setup.....

I'd just list them on craigslist for what you'd like to get them for and sit on them and hope someone bites. I asked more for the Linn's Espeks than I thought I'd get just for the heck of it and got an anxious buyer after a couple weeks. Surprised me. No harm in trying. If you sell them you'll just have to do without till you grab something else.

Geoff4RFC if you are still looking for some 10 AWG speaker wire look at this place http://www.knukonceptz.com/productMaster.cfm?category=Speaker%20Wire, they even have some 8 AWG. But if you buy from them buy from their ebay store not directly from their web site.

Oh I know, but I also know I am not gonna get 1200 out of my LSi 15's as they sell for less than that refurbed from Polk IIRC. Heck a guy on the Polk forum is selling a set in Baltimore MD for 225..........

I figure I could get about 1500 out of all of them after shipping (only would ship the center and surrounds), but that would get me a center and 2 fronts max in the KEF line..... not good enough smile.gif.......

Well at least you have some very good speakers. You could be doing a heck of a lot worse.

Oh I know, I dont feel I "have" to switch... but if I got the itch to do better its gonna cost me dearly both financially and also with "the accountant" :P.

Thanks a ton for the link. I've found a great deal through Douglas Connection courtesy of Enders.

Actually, the knukonceptz Karma looks pretty bomb, tinned oxygen, twisted cable inside the jacket, 99. for a hun ft roll, not too bad.

Anyone here using this product or one very similar?

How ironic biggrin.gif as I'm soon to be on wire quest myself!!

Drive safely tomorrow, take your time, give a full report after you've got your new mains a singing.

Wow, that's like having a hot rod in your driveway and no gas in the car.  :eek:  Drive cheerfully tomorrow!

I was considering adding a BIC F12 to the following set up:

Onkyo NR818
2x70s (fronts)
1xCS2
2x60s (rears)

But then a friend sent me this: http://newyork.craigslist.org/fct/ele/4183127205.html

He claims it's a steal at $300, but I can't even see what model it is from the pics. Looks like A5-350? Any advice? Thanks!
