Nice!

Agreed... A picture is worth a thousand words!

We just sold one house and moved into our new/old "mid century atomic ranch". I'll post a few pics once I dig out of all the boxes. Boxes, newspaper and bubble wrap everywhere. Moving sucks!

I need assistance

I have ordered an Edifier s330d speaker. It has a coaxial connection, optical spdif, rca connections, aux connection. Which connection gives the best sound quality? I believe it is the optical. My other question is, I have my pc, my xbox and a bluray player all connected to my tv via their own hdmi cables. The tv has an rca out and what looks like an optical spdif out. If I connect to the speaker via the spdif out of the tv, would that be the same as connecting directly from my pc to the subwoofer box? As far as quality is concernet, seeing how the computer is connected via hdmi, as it is converted within the tv, does it keep it's integrity normally or no? Also, the speakers are connected via speaker cables. Doesn't that lower the quality anyway? Is there any point of using something of better quality like an optical cable when it is downgraded as it goes to the speaker anyway? I appreciate your help.

Looking to upgrade. Where to start?

I have :
Front - Optimus STS 800 Towers
Center- Sony SS-CR3000
Surround - Sony SS-CR3000
Sub - Sony SA-W2500
Powered by a Denon AVR-1610

I am considering upgrading. However, I am having trouble deciding the best bang for the buck. I have even looked at gutting the sub and installing a Dayton speaker and amp from Parts Express. I just don't know if it would be an improvement. The Towers have some age on them, but still sound pretty good.
Any ideas as to what my weakest link is?

Not sure what your budget is, but I just upgraded from an Onkyo 606 AVR and Paradigm 7semk3 Floorstanders to an Integra DTR 50.6AVR and Focal Aria 926s. I also have a polk center and sub that I may upgrade later. The old system served me well but the new one was a nice upgrade and sounds great. Total cost for AVR and speakers was ~ $4k.

I am looking to see if I can get an improvement for a couple hundred by replacing my surrounds or sub. That's why I was asking about sub upgrades and building/modifying my own. I understand if it isn't possible. My system doesn't sound bad. It just isn't as crisp as I would like.

My humble set up: Swan Diva 6.1 for the front, Swan Diva C3 for my center, Swan Diva 4.1 for my surrounds, Swan Diva R2 for surround back and a SVS SB2000 with a REL T3 pulling Subwoofer duty.

No plans to upgrade any time soon I am very happy with the setup,the treble the 6.1s can be a little bright at times but other than that a very warm setup. before this setup I fooled around with all kinds of big box store brands such as Polk and Athena. Toyed with the idea of Martin Logan's but can't justify the price. I suppose if I could afford it I would probably like B and W all around all though I never heard them. Any way thanks for sharing everybody, it nice to hear about everyone's setup in a non confrontational manner.

2-channel system, with a brand new pair of Sonus Faber Olympica III's (paired with new Parasound Halo A21 amp and JC2 preamp). Fantastic out of the box, but even better when someone from Sumiko (arranged by the local store, Sound Xperience in Jenkintown, PA) came to optimize speaker placement (a whole process, taking about 90 minutes to complete). Fantastic bass and spot on soundstage post optimization.

I just changed my fronts out to my rather large RSL CG8-2's. They are Awesome! Tomorrow I may put the little RSL CG4's back in for direct comparison...hmmmm I don't know I have so many speakers and I am constantly shuffling them around. But, that is what I like to do.

I have;
So many rsl models it would take too long to list ( 19 different models I can think of off the top of my head )
Klipsch KSP 400
Magnepan MG IIIb
Carver AL III
PSB Stratus Silver
DCM Time Windows
DCM KX 212
Polk RT55
MCS 8228
Energy e XL 26,16
Swan Diva 6.1
Swan Diva 2.1
Swan M200 MKII
There may be more but there you go!

For the aperion, I absolutely Love the way my Verus Grand sound
I got the towers, center and 4 bookshelf.
I never heard anything about some kind of connection, but it would be interesting if there was one.

Thanks Ray! The 4.1s along with the center channel have the rosewood finish which is a real wood veneer and is higher quality, the 6.1s when I bought them were only available in the cherry vinyl wrap which is not as lacquered and shiny but truth be told I like the vinyl finish better. My comment about a relation between Aperion and Swan was made in error, zthe only thing they shared was at the time they were both hot selling internet direct items and everybody in the forums compared the two. I couldnt find pics of your set up are they posted? Are your grands Black or Cherry they are both pretty sweet looking!

Your set up is great looking as well, I love all the art on the walls, I think now that I have the sound I want I will devote more time and money to the decor in my own theatre as well.

I do have my speakers set a little further than the texbooks would preach but I find that I get the best imaging and stereo separation that way. I sit aprox 8-9 feet from them and they are prob close to 10-12 feet apart. I played with them for a long time to get the positioning correct. I even added some diy sound absorption panels behind the main stereo pair and and at first reflection points to tame the slightly bright top mounted tweeters on the 6.1s.

The finish on the aperion is flawless, and those pictures do not do justice on how nice they look once polish.
The down side of the black gloss finish is the dust show-up easy.


Also thanks for finding out the information about the relation
