Here is my fixed system. I'm still working on the drop down screen and drop down projector for just movies. The mains are Martin Logan Prodigy, center is Martin Logan Cinema and the sub is a Danley DTS-10 horn. It does make for a nice evening at home.

Beautiful setup, nice finish on the Danley bet it sounds great. I heard the Prodigy's about 10 years or so ago when they were first released fantastic speakers. Noticed your ML center is back a few inches on your TV stand, have you ever thought about moving it to the edge of the stand to get rid of that first reflection?

My A/v Room.

Current System includes :

Evolution Acoustics MM3 speakers

Pioneer Elite KURO
- PRO151FHD 60" plasma with articulating arm wall mount.

Boulder 1012 DA/Preamp

Oppo BDP83SE BluRay/Universal Transport

Boulder
1060 Amplifier

Synergistic Research
TESLA PowerCell 10SE power conditioner

Virtual Dynamics - UltraClear interconnects

Synergistic Research
- Hologram D, T3, and Precision Reference active power cords

Synergistic Research Quattro power source for active cables

Virtual Dynamics
EXODUS speaker cables.

GIK Acoustic Wall Panels

Billy Baggs
PRO Rack System


For power :
(4) dedicated power lines using cryo-treated 10ga wire directly from the circuit breaker box .
(4) TESLA-PLEX cryo'd wall outlets.



There have been a lot of speakers in my system over the years starting with-
JBL Jubles
B&W 802
Legacy 20/20
B&W 801
Wilson Watt3/Puppy2
Genesis II.5
Eggleston Andra
Genesis 200
Sound Lab U1
Dynaudio Temptations
Aerial Acoustics 20T
Evolution Acoustics MM3

I have had a lot of fun with all of them!

There are always going to be certain compromises with any speaker system and what it is used for.
I have always been a 2-channel stereo purist, even with my home A/V systems.
I am probably 40% Music/Concert Blu-Ray and 60% movies.

So far I am happy with my latest speakers and will for sure test them to the extremes.
They image very well and have tight, thunderous bass thanks to the (4) 15" woofers and (2) 1000 watt internal subwoofer amps.
There are controls on the back of each speaker to allow a lot of adjustability with the tweeter and bass output, depending on the room acoustics.
The craftsmanship in these speakers is impeccable and the finish is similar to violin lacquer.


PS- You can read about another fellow audiophile who has the same speakers and his opinions here :

It is not as nice as some of the rooms here.  My system last year with a 55" LED screen.  :)  Got rid of the BAT VK-500 amp and replaced it with a pair of Bryston 7BSST.  I still have the vintage tube McIntosh MC-60 monos. 




With 7Bsst amps


Bryston processor and 9BSST running the center and rear speakers

Sweet setup.  Bryston 7BSST and the BAT VK-500 amp are 2 very different sounding amps.  Why did you switch and what are you pluses and minuses between them.

Thanks

Levi

Thanks.  You are correct, they are both equally good but different amps.  When I switched from Sonus Faber to PMC speakers, the BAT didn't have the synergy anymore.  I think the Bryston amps are more refined and cleaner sounding.  It is a synergy thing.

When I switched from Sonus Faber to PMC speakers...

Why this switch? And from which SFs?

From Levi: "It is not as nice as some of the rooms here."

Looks very nice to me. Great to see PMCs in an HT setup.

I used to have a Sonus Faber Grand Piano and the BAT seems to have synergy with those speakers.  The Grand Piano seems to like Jazz, vocals perfectly but not rock/alternative music.  I want to try a full-range sounding speakers that has a small foot print.  The PMC OB1i seems to play all sorts of genre very well with Bryston amps and BAT VK-51SE tube preamp.

Thanks again David.  I take that as a very nice complement.  I just wish I have more time for movies.

It is also our living room so it is full of toys and stuff too.

Equipment:

MSB Technology Link DAC III with 192khz upsample upgrade
Pioneer VSX-9040TXH AVR

Speakers:

This is my file server located in the basement which has all my FLAC files for the Squeezebox.

Levi, I had the same pre you have (BAT VK-51SE) and was very happy with it. It was paired with a Spectron Musician III SE Mark2 and the synergy was exceptional. At the time I had Totem Winds pulling double duty as my main speakers for 2channel and also L/R for home theater. The Winds were amazing for movie soundtracks.

How is your PMC center for off axis listening since the driver locations and transmission line port are not in standard locations for a center?

- David.

Hi David, you have a great sounding system.   

The PMC center channel off axis screen dialogue is cohesive.  I hardly notice it is there when watching TV or movies anywhere in the room.  That should be a good thing. 

All I know is I have come a long way.

My system back in 2006...remember the rear projection 4:3 tv...

Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home, BAT VK-30 pre, BAT VK-200, Bryston gears etc

Levi,

Past tense. Was. And I've been going in the wrong direction.

I've been ramping up my learning and education on the 2 channel side of things, so I slowly weaned myself of HT to make that happen, ht dollar to 2ch dollar.

Then came some major room changes in the house; I now have one room for 2 channel and home theater.

At present I'm an audience looking for a show.

Sold my Oppo BDP-83SE, AVR, and the speakers that made up the 5 in 5.1  The .1 (actually .2) may also be on its way out via a sale.

I will be getting back in, slowly. Oppo BDP-93 first. Then an AVR or multi-amp. Then a major decision regarding which speakers to go with.
