Update Dec 2012

 

My video is the same, but have mad some changes to the Audio side, moving away from separate McIntosh monos & a 3 channel to one 5 channel Classe.  Also upgraded the Oppo to the 105, and Acoustic Zen Satori Speaker wires & a new equipment stand...net result is simpler, subs are closer to the middle, less boominess, and the centre went further back t owards the screen.

 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 



I started this system about 4 years ago, got rid of a pool table we never used, repainted and carpeted. I bought stuff off of Audiogon as well as locally...and it has evolved somewhat over that time. Current set up is (revised 1/2012):

I feel like less of a man after this thread. Why couldn't my parents be rich... Yes I'm 35 but still. I could have speakers costing $16,000 a piece. I need therapy.


You own it, Then Show it.. Pics, it's the only way!

Can I request a pic with the screen down. Just want an idea of what it would be like sitting there in all that awesomeness.


Kinda feel like I am asking for a topless shot of some chick or something, but I can't help it.

Now that's funny



Very nice theater Kahuna.


Question: It looks like your acoustic panels are wrapped in suede, is that right or is it just the way the pic shows it?

WOW! That's some big speakers. How does that center channel sound when it's on the floor? great looking speakers.

Yeah, that is a weakness of sorts for an otherwise incredible set up. I'd get that center off of the ground.

I'm sure with the screen down he has no where else to put it.

Hi guys,


Thanks for the nice comments!


To answer a few questions, there really isn't a lot of room to lift the center due tot he screen, and at 200 lbs, it would need a heavy duty stand! The new pics should show that it is angled upward at the listening area, and I am still going to be doing some tweaking.


Yes the acoustic panels are a dark brown faux suede. They really don't distract from the room (the color blends better than it looks in pics) and I am happy with the effect on bass and high frequency. I would like to add something to the ceiling, but I have to take baby steps, my wife was dead against the current panels...she is coming around now.




Side shot shows the HTM1D is angled upwards:



I really love the McIntosh in combination with the 800s...and the Classe is fantastic at delivering the detail without sounding harsh or cold.

Very, very nice.


You mention you have two PB Ultras - I see one PB in the pic- but is that a PC behind the other 800D? If so, any differences you notice between the two? I'd be curious to hear from someone who has both in their room at the same time.
