    In May I started the upgrade process. Here is a list of what I had and what I replaced it with. Tell me what you think.
    Pioneer VSXD-709S receiver
    Pioneer DV-333 DVD player
    Sanyo 32" TV
    speakers
    DCM KX2 center FL,C,FR
    Rears were DCM 6's
    Sub homemade isobaric box with 2 twelves and 240 watt amp
    new stuff
    Denon 2802 receiver
    Pioneer dv 333- Thinking about either Pan RV61 for DVDA or Sony DVP NS500V for SACD as replacement
    Sony Wega 32"
    speakers
    4 Klipsch KSB1.1 for FL,FR,SL,SR
    2 Klipsch KSC-C1 for front and rear center
    I got all 6 Klipsch for $580 form a local store
    sub-Paradigm PDR1200
    I love the way it looks and sounds, I'm just curious if the experts out there think I did good. I have it all set up with VE and Rat Shack spl meter.

    I think you made some good choices there Bobby. As long as YOU are satisified with how your system sounds, that's all that really matters.

    Good Job Bobby!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I've been doing sales/installations for over 10 years and I can tell you I would have had a hard time assembling a better system for you myself! Good quality components across the board. When you get your DVD-audio or SACD player(my personal favorite) [​IMG] you will really see how well you did. I love those klipsch speakers, recommend them all the time to my clients.
    Very well done home theater Bobby. [​IMG]
    You should be proud! [​IMG]

    Fear not, fret not, Bobby. You have done quite well for yourself. And don't you worry about a thing: if it works for Bobby, then it works for me very well. As it is, as of late this past summer, I have been going through the serious upgrades myself as the bug has hit me hard suddenly, so I know. For me, a receiver (Onkyo TX-DS797) and a television (one not unlike yours) are next and on the way!!! So, enjoy your upgrades, Bobby, and may they do you and yours all well and good and proud. Congratulations!!!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks for all of the replies. I am extremely happy with the new set up. TPM was awesome to watch on this system. It even registered a noticeable improvement rating on the wifeometer [​IMG].

    Tina, a good friend of mine just got the 797 and in his words it's a phenomenal receiver. He has it paired with Atlantic Technology system 270.
