Here is my home theater as the wife has allowed so far:


TV: Sony 50" rear projection LCD 720p KDF E50A10



Receiver: Onkyo 6.1 TX-SR501




DVD Player: Onkyo DV-SP404 progressive scan with 720p/1080i upconvert via HDMI




HD Cable Box: Scientific Atlanta - Explorer 8300HD DVR




Front/Mains: Yamaha NS-A636




Center: Sony SS-CN115D (pos that was part of some HTIB set)




Surround: KLH Model 21B




Subwoofer: Audio Source 6.5" woofer




Wiring: Acoustic Research











future plans include upgrading receiver and speakers, and moving current receiver to bedroom to power surround in there.

Very nice.

In a room like that, open living area, it is often difficult to get good surround. I have a similar problem.

thanks. yeah the rears are not in the "ideal" locations, but it's all i have to work with in this room. it does get the job done surprisingly well though. as low budget as the sound is right now, our house is still the one everyone wants to go to to watch movies and games.


i've thought for the next round of equipment, to look into dipole surround speakers. i was thinking that might help with the weird seating arrangement.

I would say your front left and right speakers are more of a problem. They should be up at least 24 inches or as close to ear level as you can get them. You should put them on something and experiment. Make sure if you do my new bookshelves to get some stands. Nice room though, it has plenty of potential.
