A pair of 5.1's and some other indulgences.

Greetings everyone,

Fairly new member (at least as far as posting goes.) I absolutely love looking at what everyone has for their theater's, media rooms, man caves and listening area's. Amazing setups. I thought I'd share my humble setup(s). First up is our main media/listening area in the living room. Small home, no attic space above and a slab below so no place to hide the wires for the surrounds. The equipment is as follows:

Front left and right: Mirage M-490 bookshelf
Center: Mirage MCC-R
Wall mounted surround left and right: Mirage FRX L+R

Sub: Yamaha YST-SW160

AVR: Pioneer VSX-824-K

Vizio 55" 4K D55-ud1


The room is fairly open and sized at 13' x 22' and the area where we are seated and centered for media use is 13' x 16'.









Next up is my home office/media room/mancave. Just getting this space set up. The room is 11'x13'. It also houses my simulator setup (with technically a third 5.1 setup but since it is a PC Logitech Z906 setup, well, LOL). The equipment is as follows:

Front Left and Right: Pioneer SP-BS22
Center: Pioneer SP-C22
Wall mounted surround: Insignia NS-SP213 surround L+R

Sub: Pioneer SW-8MK2

AVR: Harman Kardon AVR-1700

Insignia NS-55E480A13A 55" 1080P









In anticipation of the potential questions about the sim rig, LOL

Asus i7-4770
32 GB DDR 3 1600
GTX970 5760x1080
Fanatec CSW V2 / BMW wheel
Fanatec CSR Elite pedals
Fanatec CSW SQ shifter
Logitech Z906 audio.
Sim-Seats SRX Cockpit



The sim setup shares duty between racing simulation and flight simulation in iRacing and Assetto Corsa for racing and Microsoft FSX Flight simulator and DCS World and A10 for flight.

Thanks for looking!

Paul

Well, since the introduction went so well I figured I'd update the new components in the main listening area.

The M-490's have been replaced with ELAC Debut B6's.
The Mirage center will be replaced with the ELAC Debut C5.
The Pioneer VSX-824x has been replaced with a Denon AVR-X2200.

I'm seriously digging your setup. What do you think of the D series vizio? It's on my short list of potentials for a new TV purchase.

Thanks Frohlich. I'm very pleased with the upgrade. For me, budget always plays a role but I have to be honest, I don't feel as if I gave up anything with the decision to put the Elac's in to my setup. They perform way over their pay grade.

Thanks devotech. Honestly, when I bought it, price was the major factor. We had a 55" Samsung 1080P LED taken out by lighting and it was an unplanned purchase. With that said. We really love it. Picked it up over the holidays for $699.00. The picture quality (subjectively) just looks so much better than the TV it replaced. Really happy with the purchase. I calibrated it using a Home Theatre Essentials DVD that I've had for years and it has good, true color reproduction to my eyes and good contrast. For a budget set, it's a winner. I think Vizio have done their homework.
