I felt the need to post here as I have Jensen QX-30 front speakers, QX-60 centre and a wonderful Jensen QX-80 subwoofer.  I know Jensens have a bad wrap in most posts I've read, but I'm going to stick up for them.  I love music and these are crystal clear for all music types and the sub is heavily underrated, I love it.  The surround speakers are some Sony bookshelf's I had laying around.  They are all brought together by the sensational Marantz SR5007 amplifier.  If anyone out there is researching for buying Jensen's, I hope this thread appears for you amongst the other stuff.  I can only presume Jensen's designed and engineered in Australia by BD Imports get confused with other units from Jensen USA.  

Okay, they are not high end speakers like Sonus Faber over $10k but I have listened to similarly priced Klipsch and Polk and prefer mine at only $600 when new back in 2006.  My suggestion to anyone with Jensen's, if you like them, then enjoy them they are great speakers, everyone's tastes are different.  

 

I cannot comment on the newer Jensen stuff, just the QX series from the mid 2000's.

My basement Rig:

The speakers are all PBN Montana's, based out of California. All the speakers are in Black Oak.

Mains: EPS2's
Center: SPC-2
Surround: Mini Monitors ( recently ordered )

Subwoofer: TBD- Either a custom PBN sub, or possibly Funk Audio...down the line. Right now my mains can pressurize my room so there may be no need;)

Enjoy!!

Hello all

I know this is the tread to show our system.
I previously posted mine on page 107 post 3207 and page 111 post 3301 of this tread.

I just want to share a few changes that I have done with all of you.

Before




After



Before



After



I love the new look, when you enter the room, the death star realy jump out.
Also my Theater name is the CHIMAERA, a star destroyer from Episode VI of the Star Wars saga.
I think it fit the room for my theme.

Any comment, positive or negative are welcome.

Samsung 51" plasma ($475 still in the box)Yamaha RX V1600 ($20 plus two tickets to see Rush which I won on the radio)Fronts JBL ND 310ii ($140 plus my A/D/S/ B7 monitors)Center JBL N Center ii ($33 in a hock shop)Rear Surrounds Polk Audio Rt 800 ($175)Surround backs Energy Pro Series .5 ($5 garage sale find)Sub PSB Subsonic ii ($80. Sat 10 yrs in someones closet)Sanyo TP 1005A turntable ($10 garage sale)Acer laptop ($330)Xbox ($40 years ago)Xbox 360 ($120 two years ago)For a grand total of $1428. When money IS limited, you gotta find the deals. It's an impressive conservative system but it fits my needs to a tee. My space is about 12x20. Oh and BTW, I posted on how I mounted my center channel. Necessity really is the mother of invention. Kingston,Ontario Canada has a voice in AVS! Amended..have an Adcom 2535 that I purchased for $185 to power the Polk rears and a Realistic SPA-100 ($40)for the JBL fronts. Sounds even better. New total of $1653, still not too shabby.

The Orpheus Apollo V1

 

I have a set of Australian made Orpheus speakers-they dont'  look exactly like this-they are 2&1/2way and the bass reflex ports are on the back but apart from that they look very similar to this photo they go for around the $1,000 mark they are a bit different from a lot of designs out there being of 4ohms impedance and they draw a lot of power but im running a good grunty power amp and it takes this on easily being a 4 channel and im only using it for the front two.

 

a dali centre speaker

 

and a pair of $500ish speakers for the back

 

Im also running a Marantz sr 5007 amplifier

 

Kenwood KM-894 power amplifier for the fronts

 

and 100wrms powered sub

 

a 50 inch samsung led tv

 

and a Yamaha blue ray and of course the PC hooked into the system

 

I've got a couple of 12 year old power amplifiers sitting around which im considering bringing into the setup as well- a NAD and a Sony model respectively but both require minor repairs and im wondering if its worth the trouble-we'll see

 

Any tips on fine tuning this sort of stuff would be gratefully taken on board as i've only recently got it all going

Hello mchanjamaa, thanks for sharing.

Do you have/are you interested in any flexibility in placement, etc?
I can see several re-positioning things you can do that will really elevate the sound of your existing system, without spending a dime.

One such immediate step would be to place your center channel up on the top surface, in front of the TV plinth (maybe some thin pieces of foam or equivalent, beneath the center channel to sit on, to decouple the two).

How are you using the Sony bookshelves?

Since the last site up-date.

I did voice my opinion on how much I miss the old site compare to the new one.

That said, the new version is much better to view picture.
For the pics, that are still there.
If you click on it, you can zoom in and see a lot more details on DIY cable and screen name and so on.

I will re-visit all picture on this site in a timely fashion.

What was I saying
Well now you can all see the inperfection of the room
With the light off, it is dark and you can't see none of it.

Next time for the re-paint, it will be flat black

I have the Icon bookshelves, KB-15, and am thinking of upgrading to the RB-51 or 61. Will I notice a huge upgrade in SQ. I like the high end and clarity of the Icons, I'm just missing the warm midrange of some of the other speakers I've had in the past.

Dear Sophie. Please listen closely, because this is important

If your man loves great sound and if you love your man, you'd better stay *FAR* away from Bose.
In pro audio circles we used to say that the name BOSE stands for Buy Other Sound Equipment. And for more than one good reason.

Although Bose stuff has gotten better over the last decade or so, there still are several reasons not to buy it. Two of the most important are that Bose designs small speakers that can not output any useable energy below some 200Hz. Their "bass module, as they call it (the name "subwoofer" would be too much credit), can't produce any deep bass either, AND cannot go all the way up to 200Hz. Which means you'll be left with a hole in the frequency spectrum in the all-important 120 - 200Hz region. In this region you'll find the bottom octaves of speech. Without it, all voices sound thin and disembodied. Intelligibility of music won't benefit from it, either.

Another reason not to buy Bose, is that Bose try to overcome this designed-in defect, by psycho-acoustic processing. This means they process the sound so that it sounds "better" than it actually is. Meaning: you'll get to hear the sound the way Bose think it sounds good, and you're stuck with it. You can't change speakers - or amp - if you want something bigger/better.

My advise: save your money and buy separates, with good speakers. May cost more, but you'll enjoy it more. If you want to be sure, arrange a demo of different systems to compare them - and be sure to bring music and/or movies you know.

James.

Hey All! You may have remembered my setup from way back here

Decided it was time to start some updating, even though that setup still sounded good to my ears with HTIB Yamaha setup. So - I went to Best buy and picked up a pair of Bowers and Wilkins 684s that have effectively turned my living room into what sounds like a movie theater. Updated Pictures below:

I will second that!
I had BOSE before and cannot compare to some other Brand for same money!

Just put a budget and some people on this site might/will put some sugestions.

BOSE is atractive for small speakers for some people and honestly are not the best for sound.
But when it come to marketing, they are the king.

Just speaking from experience.

Hey all, new member from Australia.

I run a NAD 775HD with JBL LS80 and a boston acoustics vs325c. I had to downsize from my jbl Xti100 xti20 and xti300 sub.

I also have some jbl l15 in my garage workshop run by a good old NAD 7020e.

Should be getting a NAD D3020 this week. I found this site hunting for some boston acoustics e series. Hope to source some soon.

Cheers
Serg.

Mark from SoCal

Pioneer reciever vsx 823
bic dv84 mains
Bic dv62clrs center
Monoprice 4929 ceiling speakers for the surrounds
Dayton sub 1500

My whole setup is less than $1000. Im no audiophile be any means but I do enjoy watching my movies with decent sound this setup works great for me. Maybe in the future ill experiment with a DIY subwoofer.

Hello mchanjamaa, thanks for sharing.<br><br>
Do you have/are you interested in any flexibility in placement, etc?<br>
I can see several re-positioning things you can do that will really elevate the sound of your existing system, without spending a dime.<br><br>
One such immediate step would be to place your center channel up on the top surface, in front of the TV plinth (maybe some thin pieces of foam or equivalent, beneath the center channel to sit on, to decouple the two).<br><br>
How are you using the Sony bookshelves?
Thanks, I have been considering re arranging the setup but i have come across several challenges. the center speaker will not fit on the TV stand under the TV without obscuring part of the picture and i am yet to find a suitable mount to have it on top of the tv. I am using the Sony bookshelf's for surround and surround back duty. Again these need proper placement but i hate to have wires cutting across my rectangular shaped apartment living room. I will think of something soon though
