     I recently spent most of my home theater budget on an Onkyo NR-1009 receiver with the intention of gradually building from here.  I have about $300 left for a pair of left-right speakers to "hold me over" until I save up more money for a better pair.   I have read great things about the...

     Looking for ideas as to what would be an improvement over my mirage omni60 bookshelf speakers. I am trying out a pair of focal chorus 806v speakers from music direct. So far there not really much of an improvement, a little bit, but not much, maybe because there new yet, they need some time to...

    I currently have the Studio's but have come across used Ascends on my local craigslist. I don't think I will have a chance to demo them first. Would it be an upgrade or downgrade to go to the Ascend?

    My screen is 103 X 58 (118" diag). I plan on placing my Ascend Acoustics CMT340 L/C/R's behind the screen. The theater is 13.5' x 22' and is used mostly for kids playing Wii, football and hockey games, and movies... in that order. Most of the calculations for Dolby or THX account for 1 person...
  8. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey there, I noticed there was quite a buzz about using cheap, small, often valvulated headphone-like amps for driving simple stereo setups. Now, I know those usually drive smaller speakers, but Im interested in driving a pair of CBM-170 SE and maybe, even a pair of CMT-340's!!! Wouldnt want...

    I have a large tv that sits on a 14" high stand. My only option for center speaker placement is basically an inch off the floor, partially enclosed in the TV stand and tilted about 4" off the floor in order to aim the tweeter at ear level. I sit about 8-9 feet away. Is this worse than using a...

    I am redoing my basement....will be using an 18x16' alcove with 8' ceilings that connects to the rest of the full size basement. I had originally thought of doing 5.1 but think 2.1 will be just fine for me. 75% TV and Movies, balance music played while working out. There are so many options...
  11. DIY Speakers and Subs
    I have a set of Ascend Acoustics CMT-340 (L/C/R). I built an acoustically transparent screen about a year back that is just acting as a screen (i.e. no speakers behind it). I was planning to do something similar to this ZAPH Audio ZA5.3 build, but thought that maybe I could crack open the...

    Right now Ascends has two CBM-170SEs, one CMT-340SE, and two HTM-200SEs on sale for $698 (about $100 off). I was planning on getting three CMT-340s and two HTM-200s but that would run me over $1,000. Is it worth it to spend the extra for three 340s? How do the 340SEs compare to the 170s? My...

    How do Klipsch 62's, Ascend 340's, and EmpTek 55/56 compare? I've only owned Klipsch so far so I'm not worried about the harshness that some have problems with since I don't think I notice it. This is more about my curiosity in general than it is about me buying something in the near future.

    I have DIsh network, and watched Thor earlier. I dont have my rear speakers up yet, but with the system using my CM340SE mains and center, and dual LVR12 Subs...its really blah. The bass is pretty good and the voices are clear, but all of the effects are really flat, muddled and lacking. When...
