    My take on the HTD speakers ...

    Actually, you heard the Level 4s that are now discontinued. I think (from memory) the new L3s offer a bit more refinement than the 4s did.

    Who has something to say - Emotiva LPA-1

    It was/is my first foray into the world of separates. Sorry, I've not own another amp previously. I only had my Yamaha RX-V2200 receiver to compare them against (head-to-head, that is). Other beta testers compared it against higher-end receivers they have/had. And I've seen other owners...

    Who has something to say - Emotiva LPA-1

    I beta tested these units and absolutely love the sound quality they produced. The amp is a beast.

    New SVS Sealed Sub

    It's a very good attraction, but most have been using the UFW12 without the RDES (which was being revised and now being shipped). The UFW can definitely function without RDES (just like any other sub). RDES is supposed to make it better by allowing you to smooth out the curve. My point was...

    New SVS Sealed Sub

    Actually, the UFW12 is now being sold for around $700 (without RDES).

    Good Compact Speaker Recommendations?

    You might look into getting 5 of these Middies ($75/ea) from HTD.com: http://www.htd.com/htdmiddies.html Not much left for a subwoofer, but you can see if they can throw in a subwoofer at a package discounted price? Slightly larger speakers (Level 2), but it comes with a subwoofer ($650...

    5.1 surround speakers

    Can you fit the center speaker inside the tv stand? If not, try to mount it like this: http://av123forum.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=240688 You can get the mount from your local BB or CC. Or order it online at Buy.com for slightly cheaper...

    Thinking about some Swans

    I think Swan has a forum of their own, so you might want to go there and request demos from owners that may live near you. Listening for yourself is the only way to find out if you like them or not. They come in both flavors of vinyl and wood veneers. Definitely worth a look in person to...

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    I installed that on-wall speaker mount myself. It looks pretty good, but I wanted to try something different with my own. Maybe in time, I'll design/build my own on-TV shelf to blend in better and distribute weight more evenly. Sweet stand you built, btw. VERY NICE!!! Yea, I love Danny...

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    Nice speakers, Blaine. What are those? Unfortunately, my future center with a dimension of 8.5" high will not fit, as the front cross bar" will block the tweeters. Besides, my bed will muffle the sound if the center is closer to the ground. If the thing does begin to slip, I can always remove...

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    Here are some pics of my center channel on top of a DLP. The near-future matching center will be much larger: http://av123forum.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=240687 http://av123forum.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=240688

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    Nice work. There's usually some sagging issues associated with the large CRT projections, but having had my 45 pound center on my 55" TV for over 2 years now, I've encountered 0 problems.

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    Unless you have a CRT tube (not projection), it's not going to matter whether it's shielded or not.

    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    After seeing a rather large Polk center on that thing mounted to an LCD or DLP at a local CC, I decided to purchase one from buy.com. My current center channel should be very safe. I hope my new center speaker will do ok, but seeing this 45 pound monster mounted here (on a CRT, however) kinda...

    Newbie Needs Speaker advice

    You can try these X-LS speakers from AV123. The bookshelves are on the largish side, but the sound and build quality is amazing for their pricepoint. http://www.av123.com/products_catego...akers&brand=55

    Looking for a new 7.1 speaker satellite set under $1000

    The new Onix X-sub might be of more interest to you, along with their X-LS speakers. The sub measures: Size (H x D x W): 17 3/4" x 12 7/8" x 9" The X-LS speakers are on the largish size for bookshelves. They don't have a traditional center just yet, but you can get a 6.1 system for about...

    Cool. I'd be interested in your thoughts. Do you still have the Ascend classics, or the new Sigs?

    Hey, Chris. I'm hoping to get them within 2 weeks. I'll spend a couple of weeks listening to them, and off they go to Houston, if you're still interested :)

    Outlaw 990

    If HDMI (and its upconversions) is important to you, you might want to visit the Outlaw forum to read up on its DVI ins/outs. The DVI switching is just that. I found this snippet of info on AVS: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=639509 If sound quality is more important then...

    Looking for suggestions...

    I agree with Gene. First, what's the percentage of HT vs. Music? Music is where a better receiver would benefit you the most. But there's a point where your speakers aren't going to sound any better, no matter how much money you spend on the receiver. I believe this is the point that Gene is...

    Home Theater Direct Level Three

    I see. It'll probably be a better color match going with that combo.
