Hi to anyone out there.  I've reading different audio and HT forums for a few years now and actually started to build my collection of gear about a year and a half ago.  I originally started with a Polk subwoofer, Polk Center, and two old JBL speakers I got for free with a Marantz receiver.  Since then I've learned a lot and my setups have gone through more iterations than I care to count, but I've finally settled to a place where there will only be additions and no subtractions for awhile.  I recently got into DIY and have built a pair of speaker stands, a large sealed sub, and I'm working on a large dual opposed currently.  My next focus is hopefully relocating in a year or two to give my gear a real room to shine in, since it is definitely a bit tight in my apartment right now.

 

Current gear:

 

V:

Panasonic TC-P46G15

Epson 8500UB

Elite Screens 96" Motorized Tab Tensioned Screen

Oppo BDP-95

Onkyo TX-NR 3009

APC S15

 

A:

Electronics:

Outlaw 970

Behringer DEQ2496

Antimode Dual Core

MiniDSP 2X4

Aragon 8008X3

Perreaux 6000B

Cinepro 1K2

AB International 800.2

Crown XLS 2500

Threshold S/300e

 

Speakers:

Philharmonic 3's

Custom Salk Songcenter

Source Technology 8.3's

Source Technology RC4's

Source Technology Rear surrounds

EMP E-41B's

Outlaw LFM-1 EX

DIY 18" Sealed using PAP Driver

 

The setup has changed a little bit since I took these pictures, but I'll get around to taking new ones soon enough.

Hi, Alex, welcome to HTF!  That's quite a setup you've got!

Nice set up, Alex. You have clearly poured alot of passion and resources into it. I have been a lifelong Onkyo reciever man but recently have contemplated a Yamaha, how do you like your Onkyo 3009?

Hi, Alex, welcome to HTF!  That's quite a setup you've got!

Thanks, it's taken a lot to get here, but I take time to enjoy it every day for at least a little.  I love movies so having a system that, to me, sounds better than going out to the theater thrills me.

I really like the 3009.  It has some quirks that I'm not crazy about, but overall it's been a tremendous receiver for me. 

 

Likes: Lots of power, great processing, tons of features, subEQ, contrary to popular opinion extremely reliable.  I have the thing on for 3+ hours 7 days a week and never a hitch.

 

Dislikes: triggers are only for zone 2 and 3 which means turning on a zone limits the number of channels you can run and forgetting to turn off a zone keeps the receiver hot

 

Lack of OSD in extra HDMI out

 

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one to anyone with the stipulation that you run a fan on top or give it plenty of space.

You can tell you really put a lot of thought into your HT setup. Looks great. I am sure it sounds great too.

That 12v trigger thing I wish Onkyo would let itself get over...

Integra the triggers can be assigned anywhere...and the OSD is avail on the 2nd HDMI.

But yeah...they let Integra have all the final stuff.

But back to yours...great theatre in search of a room(we've all been there).

Thanks, Parker.  I've put a lot of effort getting things to where they are now.  I love how everything sounds, but can't help but wonder how much better it would sound with a little more breathing room

That's the only thing that bothers me about Onkyo.  I'm thinking about switching back to Marantz if I can find a Marantz 7005, 7701, or 8801 for the right price, but I'm still very happy with Onkyo so I'm by no means in any rush.

 

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment and the others.  Hopefully it won't be too long before this system can find a nice room to stretch out a bit.

Anupa:

 

Welcome to HTF. I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

 

Alex:

 

Having enough room to allow your speakers to breath is a real plus and with your setup I am sure it would

sound fantastic. But then you would never want to leave the room and get nothing else done.

I'm sure you're right.  I recently (sort of) finished a build I had been working on and added two more speakers.
