I like the starry sky aspect.
Thanks. You don't hear about Phase Tech speakers very often. I have some in my office that I've had for 30 years.I'm fairly new here. Here's my system with the new Sony X900H I purchased. (you can still see the packing material piled up on the right ). I did slide it over a couple inches to the left since I took this pic.
The system is as follows:
- Sony XBR85X900H
- Denon AVR-X3000 Receiver
- Phase Technology Teatro 6.5 Center
- Phase Technology Teatro 4.5 L/R and Surrounds
- HSU VTF-2 MK5
- Sony UBPX700 (on order)
The fireplace puts the right channel a little forward and off to the right, but I don't notice any issues with it after running Audyssey.
That tree was my wife's idea and I have to admit, it makes a pretty nice backlight while watching the TV.
I'm standing i the kitchen. The TV is mounted so anyone sitting in the kitchen either at the table or island can easily see it over the seating. Great for a lot of people over watching a football game or whatever.
Yeah, mine are about 20 years old. The only problem I had was about a year ago, one of the tweeters went out. Fortunately I was able to get on the website and purchase a replacement. As you can see from he picture it was an easy fix. Just the 4 screws, pop it out and 2 quick disconnects.Thanks. You don't hear about Phase Tech speakers very often.

My problem, Clinton, is that my Elac Atmos seakers are too close to my ceiling (in both my old house and my new house--we moved in July) to give me proper Atmos sound. They are sitting atop my front speakers which are already mounted only a foot to a foot-and-a-half from the ceiling.Here’s what I’m up against when trying to implement Atmos in my HT. I’m not sure if I can pull it off with bounce speakers… The tall part of the ceiling is the front of the HT. It starts at 14.5’ high and slopes down to 8’ high over a distance of 13’. I’ve been out of school too long and have slept too little so I’m not even going to attempt the math to figure out a bounce angle. Like I posted earlier, I may just buy the speakers and see if I like the way it sounds. Keep ‘em if I do or take ‘em back if I don’t.
You could always make a pair of grills if you want to hide te damage inside the horns.View attachment 121722
Finally finished off the media shelf I built some time ago so I just wanted to update it in this thread.
Also here is the Star Trek limited movie poster I won here at HTF.

Altec A-7's needs some TLC even if I can not afford to have them professionally refinished with a high gloss piano black finish to look like a piano.
