You can get the 6'2" 1:1 robot for a mere $6000.00

The 1:1 head is only $500


edit: DOH! SOLD OUT

You need an image hosting site, such as Photobucket, Image Shack, etc.

I just figured that I would answer the question here since I received 3 PMs already...

The top rack is holding the new HR21 PRO from DirecTV... It is a very nice HD DVR that allows 100 hours of HD content. It is made by samsung and has nice picture quality... Send Robert of VE a PM to inquire about them and tell him JoeRod sent you!

Got some new toys in December, finally getting around to posting pictures.

Sony 40" Bravia, with Ascend 340SE speakers across the front. (The center speaker stand is temporary of course) Wall treatments behind the speakers. Power cord and remote receiver and up/down switch visible on the right. We're renting, and for the time being the white plastic tube around the black power cord is the easiest and most elegant solution.



Elite brand 100" motorized screen



Component rack with PS3, Xbox 360, Comcast HD DVR, VCR, Toshiba HD A35, Denon 2910 (for CDs, upconverting DVDs), and Sony 5300ES receiver. Below the rack is a Behringer Feedback Destroyer which I use as an eq for my sub (Hsu VTF-3 Mk2). Bass traps visible in the corner.




Panasonic AE2000U projector behind the couch, Ascend 170SEs mounted to the wall, more bass traps in the back corner (sub is near that corner), and messy computer desk in the foreground.




Say hello to my little friend.




Needs no introduction.







And after re-arranging the room, rotating 90 degrees, for the projector, I finally got some time today to run Room EQ Wizard and re-tweak my sub eq (BFD).

Here's in-room bass response, combined Hsu VTF-3 Mk2 sub and Ascend 340SE mains, before eq'ing (dotted line is post-eq-filter prediction), with 1/12 octave smoothing. Basically what I would hear without an eq. This shows 15-200Hz - pretty nasty, but probably pretty common for a lot of rooms:



Here's with the eq applied, sub and mains, 1/12 octave smoothing.



Same thing, only with 1/3 octave smoothing. Amazing results for a $100 piece of equipment and a lot of time testing with Room EQ Wizard. I'd rather have my sub, my BFD, and my bass traps, than just a sub worth as much as all of that combined, because my stuff would sound much better.

Here's mine, as simple as it may be...



I've had the same setup for nearly 8 years, only changes are the Panasonic Plasma, previously a 32 inch Toshiba Tube, and the components.

I had purchased the speakers and TV stand from Sam's Club when I was a senior in High School.

the wires are a mess

I really like this thread

Here is my new setup. The room is very large at about 6900cuft + its very open to the kitchen, entry, and other making around 9000cuft with those included.

Components:
Samsung 50" Plasma HP-S5053
Pioneer VSX-D709S
Sony PS3/Wii
BIC Acoustech HT-88 Mains
BIC Acoustech HT-65 Surrounds
BIC Acoustech HT-85 Center
BIC Acoustech H-100 Sub





Thinking about adding a second H-100... I like the sub, especially cosmetically, output is actually pretty good considering the size of the room, but the sub is about 12ft to the left in the corner which is the optimum place in that room, and i found a second location that provides pretty good output on the opposite side of the tv that i think would keep the bass from seeming a tad localized and would also add more umph.

Thinking about upgrading the Receiver to the new Yamaha RX-V3808, Pioneer Elite VSX92, Denon 3808CI, or the Marantz SR7002. Based on what i've read i'm leaning more toward the Yammy.

I'm also in process of using wall plates to hide all wires behind sheetrock and also building a component stand under the tv. Planning on framing it, then finishing it off with drywall and wood molding on the base so that it looks as part of the house.

With all the room and wall space you should definitely consider a projector for a more in-depth viewing experience...
post #1094 of 1186
Update:

I bought my first HT using Polk Audio 6750 w/ the Onkyo 605







Everything is wonderful, but would be grand if I could find the A35 for cheap to get that little TrueHD light on my receiver

lol. I had just bought the house about 6 months ago and already had the tv is why i have it. But the thought of a projector had really crossed my mind. The largest bare wall is about 22'-23' wide and 14' tall in the center... if i were to get a projector it'd have to be a pretty nice one, and very bright for the distance and because of the windows. Plus its primarily the living room and i dont have a dedicated HT room unfortunately.

Nice looking setup. Very clean.
post #1101 of 1186
First post here, figured I might as well jump right in.........

Our setup is in the family room, so even though it's a music system first and foremost it also has to work for A/V as well.

The main components are a B&K AVR202 feeding a bridged Citation 7.1 power amplifier running to Magnepan MG3a mains. The B&K powers the Klipsch rears and the AR center. We're running 2 TAD subwoofers in stereo, which is optimized for audio but works surprisingly well for video.
Inside and on top of a 1942 Philco Hi-Fi cabinet resides the AR center channel speaker, a Toshiba HD-A30 connected by HDMI to a Sharp Aquos 46" 1080P HDTV, and the B&K via optical cable.
The component / media storage rack is about 35 feet away in the entry closet so it is a feat to wire things up right ;^D

You can get the 6'2" 1:1 robot for a mere $6000.00

The 1:1 head is only $500


edit: DOH! SOLD OUT

A local shop that I get some of my collectibles from has sold 5 of those T-800's. They went for almost $10,000 a piece to collectors. They are actually made by Stan Winston Studios for Sideshow.

These are a small group of pieces I own. Some are from various companies. Example the Vader helmet is from Master Replicas and was created using the actual hero helmet Haden wore for Episode III. Fun stuff but addictive and hard on the pocket book.

We've added 2 more subs (wired as stereo pairs) so thought I would post an update.

How you like the Mags I see they have a surround system now.
post #1105 of 1186
I've had Magnepans in one form or another continuously since 1979, so obviously like them quite a bit.
They can be fussy to set up properly and need some space to sound right, but at least for me are more than worth the effort.
I don't know much about their latest HT offerings, but expect they still represent a good value for money spent.

I'm right with ya, Brian! I've had 'em since '77... Fell in love with the tympani IVs as a poor college student.

Right now I've moved off my 2.7s to MC1s all around and a CC3 in front. Just one sub tho (Martin Logan). In the process of rebuilding the system and may be can post a pic later. All of it is on the wall (pio plasma and mc1s) which looks cool. Will upgrade the plasma and add a projector for night time viewing that will really rock when it's done.

It's hard to beat Maggies for value. See reviews in absolute sound, etc. Even Harry Pearson is said to use 'em in his HT... Only thing I like almost as much are the high end Gallos...

Too funny, I bought my first set (MG1's) new in college.....had to sell my Fender Bassman 100 full stack to pull it off and had no regrets!
Even if someone gave me a set of Tympanis I never could have afforded the electronics to power up those massive panels.

Sounds like you would fit in well with the rest of us inmates at the Planar Speaker Asylum

slightly ot:
LOL! i think it was '76. a buddy got a pair of maggies, dont know mod #. huge panels and they sounded great.

after listening to the newly released al stewarts 'year of the cat' for a few hours on the new maggies i went out and BOUGHT a fender bassman full stack-to match my new fender p-bass. i played in a band back then and had been using a roland 200 watter w twin 15" cabs that i had purchased in tokyo and had shipped to reno, nv.

im not sure there was any connection between listening to the maggies and getting the fender-think i had been wanting them for a while. probably just coincidence.
but it was the same day.
