Stefaan's speakers and devices

Hi, having asked a question about upgrading my speakers, I thought it would be a good idea to post some pictures of my current set-up. I have a Philips 65OLED873/12 TV, a Marantz SR5013 receiver, with an Apple-TV 4k, a Teac CD-P650 CD player, a Panasonic VCR, a Panasonic DP-UB154EG-K Blu-ray player, a dirt-cheap and cheerful Majority Scholars multi-zone DVD player (I have lots of zone 1 DVDs) and a Dual CS-5000 record player with an Ortofon OM30 cartridge.
The speakers are two Infinity Primus 360 in the front, and two Infinity Reference 1i in the back.The Primus 360 date from 2011, and I got them on Amazon for €130 each. The Reference 1i are much older, I bought them in 1997 but there's no sign of disintegrating foam. I am, all in all, quite happy with the sound even though the placement in the room is questionable -- the speakers are close to the wall (with one right in a corner, and the other next to a cupboard. I play the tuba in the village band, so I have some acquaintance with the sound of real instruments, and my setup sounds pretty natural to me. That being said, I am not overly confident in my abilities to distinguish differences between speakers and other sound equipment once they reach a certain level of fidelity.

Nice setup. Please don’t take this as a criticism. You might want to consider getting the center speaker out of the cabinet. It will make it sound like a whole new BETTER speaker, like it is. When I recently got my Canton Vento 866.2 I put it in a cabinet slot like yours and it Sounded muffled and muddy from cabinet resonance. I took it out put it on a shelf and it was night and day better sounding. Maybe a shelf right above your TV, reasonably easy to do.

Is that a BDI Corridor TV stand? I was looking at the same one in the darker brown color. How do you like it?

I agree it would sound much better. I just hate the look of seeing a center speaker. Maybe if i had a man cave or something, but my apt only has two rooms and this is the main one. Looks > *
That said, also a suggestion for the poster above asking about the cabinet, the center channel has to off center. It is one thing to trap the speaker, but if it is not off center, the tweeter is 100% blocked when the doors meet.

I did put acoustic foam behind/around the center channel as it was too boomy. I also run the cross-over high at 110.
Also in general, the tweeters on there 400s series Elacs are crazy good and still sound good like this. (tho one could one could convincingly argue that it is even a bigger waste to lock it up)

The acoustic foam does help mitigate the resonance issue. Raising the crossover helps also. Those Elacs are very nice units, I am sure it still sounds good! My entertainment room is 20' x 25' with a cathedral ceiling. Lots of volume to fill, but I have the speakers and power to fill it. Led Zeppelin at concert level really rocks the house.

Nice place and Audio gear

I see you are using a Tripod on the couch, for doing a calibration.
My suggestion would be in the future to get a cheap Boom mic;
https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-T...Q2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
And would also require one of those adapter;
https://www.amazon.ca/Rode-Pivot-Piv...%2C199&sr=8-13

The one I link, are just for example. And many other cheaper options can be add.
Wit such nice equipment's, it is a very useful tool for a cheap price.

The reason I mention this, a microphone like the one you use more likely an AVR that use Audyssey for calibration. When the mic is set on a Tripod, it can results in some wrong value during the calibration process. From potential vibration on your couch, that can be transfer to the mic.
