    Can anyone tell me if the Hsu HB-1 MK2's sound like anything I might be able to find at an audio store? I'm asking b/c if anyone can say they sound like "brand x" but a little different here and there, that could help me make a decision. Do they sound like Energy's, Def Techs, Klipsch, Polks...

    Looking for bookshelf speakers (identical LCR) that actually go on a bookshelf as part of a wall unit. Would I need horn tweeters? Large room, floorstanding speakers not an option. After reading other posts on this forum, seems like if on a bookshelf, then sealed or ported would be the way to...

     I need help deciding. I have a 15" X 20" theater room that was pre-wired for a 7.1 setup by the previous homeowner.  My receiver is a Pioneer VSX-70. I will be adding a projector with 110" screen for viewing once my audio has been set up. The room will be used mostly for movies and tv, and not...

    I'm looking to "downsize" my towers for bookshelf speakers and am torn between these two options. Currently I have Mirage OMD-15's and OMD-5 for rear and an OMD- C1 for the center. I'd like to go book shelf speakers for front mains, center and possibly in-wall for rears. I will be keeping my...

    So I got a decent deal on Craigslist for a pair of HB-1 MK2 bookshelf speakers and a BIC subwoofer on the way to building a vinyl collection in my new apartment. With what limited knowledge I have as of now, I think I'll need a receiver and a record player next(my only input sources are...

    Hey Guys: I'm currently using Pioneers BS22 and C22 for my LCR. My usage is 85% movies/TV and 15% music. I've been overall happy with my budget system. Many here may flinch but I actually enjoy listening to music on these, so I wouldn't change them just for this. However, I have found...

    This was my first trip to the RMAF. I do live in Colorado but never attended the show, primarily because it's almost entirely 2 channel audio and I'm mostly a home theater guy. After spending about 5 1/2 hours at the show, I wish I hadn't waited so long to attend. Before I express my thoughts...

     Hello all,   I'm getting into the world of home theater, and need some advice receiver-wise (I already have a thread on speakers started).   For now, I'll be doing a 5.1 set up (as my room isn't really laid out well enough to do 7.1/2). While that means I don't technically need a 7.1...

     Title roughly says it all folks.   I'm in the market for a home theater system, and I really have no idea what to get. I did go to Best Buy and their Magnolia section and looked around at some of their stuff. Needless to say, it's all very overwhelming (both in terms of what's out there, and...

    I been looking at bookshelf speakers for about a year now. About to finally move from my apt to enjoy good HT sound with an AT screen. I decided on dual 18in Dayton speakers that are amazing for the price when going DIY. Picking up a denon 4520 avr and I'm doing a 11.2 setup. Hoping for 11.4 by...

    I'm coming from audioengine A5's and tried to switch to polk tsi200's I didnt like them at all. The bass was wolly and they were just nowhere close to the audioengine level of quality. I'm trying to get back to the level of wow that the audioengine had in terms of detail, clarity, etc. I'm...

    I started a thread in the "Theory, Setup and Chat" section looking for advice on upgrading my 2.0 system and received some good info. I've decided to upgrade my old Infinity Reference 2000.1 bookshelf speakers for now, and thought I'd try here for some recommendations from the group. Based...

    I wanted to get the community average on this one so I would like everyone to vote. I just want to get a feel as to what the community as a whole likes out of the 4 sets of speakers that will be listed for a 5.1 home theater in a 20Wx12Lx7H room. Now I am planning on pairing any one of these...

    I have a $2,000 budget to buy a 7.1 (or 7.2 if it fits within my budget) speaker system. The question I have is essentially should I spend $1,000 on a sub and $1,000 on the left, center, right and surrounds, or $500 on a sub and $1,500 on lcr and surrounds? For example, which of the following...

    Arx A1b Ascend CBM 170SE HSU HB1 MK2 Any opinion on which of these would be best for a primarily HT based listening experience? It seems like I can't go wrong with any of these. I may occasionally use these without a sub for outdoor home theater on the go (i have a portable screen) so if...
