Hey all. I thought I would share my setup. My biggest problem has been space and a projector with 5.1.
My room is smaller...11x14. Luckily our building is concrete so the sub has not been a problem for the guy below me. Of course I am good at not watching loud movies or playing my PS3 at midnight. I do these things, I just turn it down or run in midnight mode.
Projector: Panasonic AX100 (AE900 in the pic)
Player: PS3 60g with HDMI used for video and sound
Receiver: Pioneer Elite VSX-92TXH
Front Speakers: Totem Tribe 1
Center Speaker: Totem Tribe 1
Rear Speakers: Energy RC Mini
Subwoofer: SVS SB-12
Headphones: Pioneer SE-DIR800C
Remote: Harmony 880 (wired in with PS2 DVD remote equipment)
The PS3 as my sole ‘media center’ has worked out well, other than my girlfriend finds it a bit overwhelming to use. I have it on the far side of my couch with my Elite 92.
The front Totems are my pride and joy. Unbelievable speakers.
The Energy RC minis are difficult to say much about since they are my rears and don't get a ton of sound, however seem to do the job well. I may change these to Totem Dreamcatchers. One thing about the RC Minis is that they are a great looking speaker. If they sounded as good as they looked, I would have bought the whole set and saved money.
The Elite 92 is a great receiver with the sound quality improvement I was looking for over my Onkyo 602. It runs much cooler than my Onkyo, it has all the advanced setup features I wanted and all the latest technology.
