    New amp or better speakers?

    Could try a three channel amp, or three monoblocs for front array. Demo/borrow first though.

    Rab C Nesbitt- released on Region1?

    Man I hate that we show most of the US shows (esp. trash like Friends all the time) but our classics are never/hardly shown in the US at all (or perhaps only on BBC America)...stinks if you ask me.. Blackadder Fawlty Towers Only Fools and Horses Rab C Nesbitt Father Ted I understand...

    Rab C Nesbitt- released on Region1?

    Will this great TV series be released in America? Have you guys across the pond watched it? Can you understand the heavy Govan accent? (especially in the first series) :D

    How is CELESTION speakers?

    Another recommendation for the A series, fantastic speakers. Need good amps though. Usually sell for low prices second hand, so can snap up a bargain.

    Comfortable Headphones around $100?

    I've just bought some Beyerdynamic DT 241's..quite nice sound, good low end. Not great isolation but obviously better than open. Pretty cheap too. http://www.beyerdynamic.com/com/prod...eets/d742.php3

    Upgrading to more efficient bookshelves

    If your speakers sound nice to you, why not just buy a poweramp? A second hand high powered two or three channel poweramp will upgrade your system, and also allow you to play at your level more cleanly.

    svs or hsu subwoofer?

    I haven't heard your subwoofer Curtis or even know what your model is, but mine does sound better :-D

    second subwoofer?

    I would buy a identical subwoofer, you don't want two different subwoofers...buy another Klipsch 10". Although it's probable a single high quality sub (HSU, SVS etc) will outperform a dual Klipsch 10" system.

    Thank you SVS for ruining my life.

    nah, it's just the walls do not transmit or flex with the vibrations, there's also much higher sound isolation (brick, brezeblock, padding, then brick) I guess if you live in a condo you've only got plasterboard then padding and outer woodwork. At least our houses have some use, they might be...

    How to bottom a SV Sub.

    I'm so glad my Lexicon pre-amp has default power-on volume and protect settings mode. and a girlie that's really into HT? Will you marry me? :D

    Thank you SVS for ruining my life.

    You know, American houses must be made out of cardboard. What with all this "my SVS shakes the whole house" I've ramped my PC Plus up and you can't even hear or feel it the other side or the house. And you can't really feel or hear it outside either, even 6' from the wall. Our house is...

    2 Center Speakers

    Sounds like you should calibrated your system, adjust the dynamic range compression setting, or buy a better speaker (with the last definite improvement over budget centres, centre mix is more intelligible)

    Seperate processor, opinions.....

    Sound quality, easy of use, configurability, Logic 7 & processing..but as you said lacks multi-channel input, component switching. I've had a Rotel av pre-amp. Suffice to say I'll never buy another Rotel av or stereo pre-amp. They aren't that great for music either. Their poweramps are good...

    2 Center Speakers

    You might have combing problems, so I would be careful about positioning or even using two centres in the first place.
