I am very close to finally getting my movie room with my 7.1 system up! Just finished buying the last of the stereo equipment the other day. Here's the setup; Front speakers: Paradigm Mini Moniter V.7 Center speaker: Paradigm Center 3 Rear and side speakers: Polk Audio OWM 3 Sub Woofer: BIC America F12 All powered by a Marantz 1603 I have all the speakers wired in except for the Center 3, and the sub. After those, I just need to plug the receiver in and get it dialed in. I heard the Marantz 1603 powering the mini monitors and center 3, at a local Classic Stereo shop, and was very impressed. I can't wait to see how the whole system sounds in the room. The room is in my basement and all the walls and ceiling have been covered by soundboard, and then carpet. Anyone have any tips on how to dial the receiver in so the sound quality is top notch?
