holy moly, my friend that is what I call nearfield.biggrin.gif but apartment dwellings will do that to you. only so much space for accommodations.

It actually doesn't look so bad to me. Only the back surrounds are really near field, there looks to be plenty of distance to the fronts and bipolar/dipole surrounds. If you you want to see crazy near field check out caloyzki's posts from recently wink.gif

I'd be concerned about knocking that veritas center off its stand.

No no, I got that for temporary use smile.gif I am using a Viewsonic pro8200 for my display,you will see it on the shelf above left rear speaker. Will be getting a 100 or 125 elite screen to drop down on the window there. Was throwing it on the wall in my previous apartment.

I will be toeing in the rear and front speakers before running the Audyssey now.

I wish these were in the Woodland Hills that is closer to me in Canada. Unfortunately for me, they are 35 hours away and not 2 hours. They would have been snatched up if they were the 2 hour drive.

Congrats on the new little one, batpig.

Veritas 6.3: $799 ea in Canada at FS until 3 Oct
post #49360 of 51453
They are priced that way since a couple of weeks... Means they don't have too many left on hand... Wonmder if it will go even lower? Sure thing, I'm keeping a close eye... Love my Rc70s a lot, but if the price is good... I'm sick for those finishes !!!

The Rosenut V6.3 speakers that I returned were sold for $700 for the pair because FS wanted them gone and forgotten. I would have kept them for that price, but that wasn't offered back when I tested them. Home theatre is where the 6.3s belong, and I would be happy to have them pounding out sound effects in movies.

Ahhhh Caloz you can't ask for paypal fees on Ebay:eek:rolleyes.gifmad.gif
...and you would probably be better to list them separately.
post #49365 of 51453
I would probably use a different word than "nicks" for the corners! smile.gif

You will definitely do better listing them separately. Who's going to want to buy two mismatched center channels? You are really limiting your pool of buyers by bundling them.
post #49366 of 51453
Makes no sense to bundle those center speakers together. They don't match at all. Sell them separately Caloyzki.

That V5.2C is damaged pretty badly. Those are a lot more than nicks on the corners.
post #49367 of 51453
He PM'd me saying that he wants to sell them both or not at all. Makes sense in that regard I guess.
post #49368 of 51453
unrelated to the prior posts, but I thought I should share that for people who were worried about energy's future.

Well.. We all have to be worried. The slogan of the official facebook energy brand reads as follows:

"Enhancing lifestyles and inflating egos with pure sounding, powerful speaker systems."

"inflating egos"... Really?!?!? Since when ego is a proven mark of a really good sounding system?!?! Even if a lot of people take pride in what they buy, it should'nt be a manufacturers building characteristic if you want to provide good value.

If energy still manages to continue to produce new products, be prepared for a Marketing ******** induced highly priced crap. Energy shall become the new Bose... mad.gif

As sad a statement as that is, Bose is a very profitable company. In many/most industries nowadays marketing has a much more direct correlation to bottom-line profits than does product quality.
post #49370 of 51453
Again, since when profitable means quality?
post #49371 of 51453
But you are right, profit is the target, and energy shall be profitable as f*** for sure...

When and where did you pay $700 for 2 6.3's ?? Can I buy them from you? LOL
post #49373 of 51453
Hi everyone!

I know this topic has been covered in the past, but with changes in the market and the discontinuation of the Veritas line, I'm looking for some advice/input.

I currently have a pair of v6.2 towers as my main L/R channels. They are a year old, and are in perfect condition (very clean house, non-smokers, no pets or children). I have the original packaging, gloves, spikes, etc. I have the opportunity to purchase a pair of v6.3 towers for a heck of a deal, so I'm thinking of upgrading if I can sell the 6.2s. Does anyone have advice on where to try to sell the speakers, and how much they are going for? I've done some searching on eBay, Craigslist, and the AVS classifieds, but it' all over the board, and I can't tell what things are actually selling for.

Any advice/input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Why not keep the speakers for home theater , since a 3 way is not that critical for a home theater setup .


use the 3 way v6.3 for a 2.0 system for music.

That's a good idea. Unfortunately, I'm space-constrained and I can really only put towers in one room. As such, my setup plays double duty with home theater and music (about 70/30).

I'm curious how much everyone thinks the 6.2s are worth, as purchasing a pair of 6.3s would depend on how much I can sell my existing pair for. Thanks for the idea, though! I actually wish I could have both so that I could use the pair of 6.2s as surround speakers!

Thanks again everyone.
post #49376 of 51453

Well, it would seem to me that the logical place to start is "What did you pay for them?" Were they brand new? When you bought them did you feel like you got a fantastic deal and that they are still worth close to what you paid? Otherwise, just list them here in AVS classifieds or in Audiogon and Craigslist and start at a price that would be a little better than what you would honestly expect to get for them along with saying that you will take offers... if there are no takers for a while, then you can always start coming down in price.... and most likely you may indeed end up at 1/2 or less of what you paid for them. It all depends on what you "need" to get for them and how quickly you need to sell.... coupled with how "in demand" your speakers are..
post #49378 of 51453
I need some help deciding my front speaker setup. I have many constraints in this.

First the room is a living room the is 12 feet wide. The rear speakers are in ceiling eas-6c speakers that are already installed. Receiver is Denon 1913 if that matters.

Now the room is very wide, extends far to the left and has an opening to its right to the kitchen as well so a semi open layout. These will be used for mostly TV, football, and some movies probably in that order. Now I am trying to keep the cost down and I want to stick with Energy because well I like the sound of the speakers and I already have the ceiling surrounds in place. The in ceiling setup would work well but I feel like the front sound stage will sound very odd. Does anyone have experience with the V-mini vs the CB-20/10 line or has anyone done any reviews?

Almost forgot one important piece. The speakers will be very very close to each other if I set them up in the front. By very close I mean in 4 feet I would have a L Center and R speaker. In ceiling they would obviously be as far apart as wanted. So essentially what is the worst compromise here? Also anything will be better than my TV's speaker. Also in wall wont work because the TV is right up against the end of the wall on the right. Laso budget I would like to say under 4 - 500 for the L/C/R speakers. Preferably less since its an easier sell to the wife... 300 would be best but I can go up if the quality is much better. Sub will be added later.

Have a basement setup for mostly HT that isn't as compromised so that is where most movies are watched so again mostly upstairs is TV and such.

For the front stage I thought of a few options:

1) eas-6C L/R speaker and eas-6cst center speaker in ceiling
Pro:
  • Wife is Happy (Speakers are hidden/out of way)
  • Kid won't destroy them
  • Take up no Space
Con:
Screwed up front sound stage I would assume

2) v-mini L/R bookshelf and v-mini c center speaker
Pro:
Front sound stage actually comes from in front of TV
Con:
  • Kid can get to them (she likes to rip **** out of place)
  • Wife can see them

3) CB-10 or CB-20 L/R and CC-10 center
Pro:
Front sound stage actually comes from in front of TV
Con:
  • Kid can get to them (she likes to rip **** out of place)
  • Wife can see them
  • Larger than v-mini

I would think 3 vminis centers as l/c/r would work nicely - about 133 a piece at wwstereo I believe - rosenut - very furniture grade look which the wife might like. Good sound and quality for the price. Very large discount on those right now. Not sure about the kids....Having 4 of my own...I went with heavy towers, that would teach them a lesson if they knocked them over on themselves :-)

These would give you some versatility down the road maybe too - like a bedroom or something.

My honest opinion is to go all in-ceiling. This is a "compromise" room that isn't for serious viewing and you have your "no compromise" basement to keep YOU happy. So make the wife happy in this room and hide the speakers in the ceiling, honestly none of your potential options is going to sound that great so might as well go for the least marital friction.
