Welcome BrolicBeast to the WYSC thread.


Nice list of gear you have there. Always enjoy seeing other audio enthusiast having fun with their Klipsch speakers. A new JVC PJ would be
too.

Gracias! I'm actually going to take some snapshots tonight with some of my favorite movie scenes. I love my Mitsubishi HC7000 Projector 100%--the only reason I want the RS50 is for pristine 3D functionality. But--I'm still waiting on reviews to roll in, and what I've been hearing about the light-output is worrying. I'm giving them until the end of the summer to convince me! lol

I appreciate the welcome! Yes, I'm a huge fan of Klipsch. I hope to get their palladium towers if I somehow find a way to justify 20K on a speaker pair. (I'm trying! lol)

Wow! You have a great system. How do you like the Klipsch speakers? Mine are not as grown up as yours. I as you can see on page. I'm slowly upgrading as the finance committee (the wife) allows. How do you find the sound from the subs with them positioned next to the couch? I have a single sub next to mine.

Thanks for checking out the system! I love the Klipsch Speakers completely. There's something about horn-loaded tweeters that's pure magic. Ahh, the finance committe! lol--I'm stacking up all my theater gear BEFORE I get married, because I know it gets hard once the ball and chain are attached.

I like to think of it as a Challenge, but get as much as you can now!

Love it! Nice gear, and very clean! I'm thinking of adding a second sub. How is 5.2 compared to 5.1? I know it depends on the room, but in your situation? Also I can't put them opposite, I can only have them both located at the front.


Thanks

The integra and the Emotiva mesh well together, and I'm not just saying that because I own them. Prior to getting the Integra DHC-80.2, I used a Denon AVR 4310 as a Pre-Amp, and it was nothing compared to the openness of the Integra. If you do go for that combination, you will be thoroughly satisfied!!


I know the contrast in the room/rack picture is ridiculously high (sorry about that), but the equipment closet is literally located directly behind the room itself.

Thank ye, kind sir! 5.2 is definitely better than 5.1, but the difference isn't mind-blowing. The bass is definitely more evenly distributed, as i now viscerally FEEL the bass is all around me during movie scenes, as opposed to with the 5.1 which still sounded great, but didn't carry that "feeling." (Theres a scene in Transformers 1 between the 1:55:00-1:56:00 mark that will test the prowess of any bass system. Check it out if you own the blu-ray. I use that scene as a benchmark for subwoofer placement/sound quality)
