*Warning: Noob Attack!!!

I'm using a Xbox(CD player) -> NAD 3020i -> Denon PMA-880R -> Tannoy Mercury M2 setup.

Not much of a "Wow" but it gets the job done quite decently.

And, in the end, that's all that matters.

I owned the LSi15 a couple years ago. There's a nice forum community at polkaudio.com - some great folks.

The brief audition I had with the Vienna Acoustics Bach left me impressed for a $1500/pr set of floorstanders. I prefer what I heard from them to the LSi15, but that's just me - better finesse/articulation, and the bass was better integrated. There's a drop-dead gorgeous pair on agon right now for $750; they will make someone very happy!

The Tyler Acoustics Taylo reference monitors are a steal at ~ $850 used (still a decent value @ $1600 new) - super imaging/soundstage, snappy mids & sweet highs.

The Tannoy Eyris DC3 are also excellent, but have poor distribution in the US and are almost $2800/pr if bought new. Imaging is super like the Taylos, but they're a bit warmer & have a bit more bass.

I'm not sure if they are still selling them at that price range, but the Onix Strat Minis are an amazing speaker in that range. I have a pair that were given to me as a gift. Here is a a few pics of them being tested in my 2.2. setup:

Definitive Technology here! Mine is primarilly for home theater usage, not serious audio listening.

Just using speakers for HT mainly at the moment. Running a pair of Quad 22L up front, with the matching L center channel. Using an older pair of Axiom M22ti's for the rears.

I'll probably put a 2-ch speaker rig together in a couple years when I'll be able to have a dedicated room for it.

I did some furniture shuffling today, and Its been ages and ages since I posted a speaker rig picture. Heres the shot from the new bed position.



NAD C352 -> Mission M33 & Eltax Symphony 6.2 wired in parallel and stacked. I love to think it looks the 6foot shizzle. Doesn't sound too bad either. Originally got the Eltax speakers (including the centre speaker under the monitor) for a 5.1 rig, but I blew up my crappy Goodmans surround amp with them. So its back to 2.0 for the time being. Now I just wish I had a 30" screen.

That's very cool Duggeh! I don't remember seeing those Eltax speakers when I was around? Isn't the bed in the way of the door?
post #159 of 288
Heh, the door opens 90 degrees then hits the side of the bed, I also moved the wardrobe up next to the door. Entry to my room is now sideways I got the eltax speakers only last week. £75 for the 3 including delivery. I had to make new crossover bypass bars because they were bi-wired by the previous owner, but im really chuffed with them.

I looked at best buy they were $2300 I loved the mid range, the bass was tight and up front, but the DVD we were listening too was the eagles Hotel california and the voices sounded like they were comming from speakers? May be I will go back with some of my CDs.

I will check them out thanks a bunch. PS. the bass (lsi 15s) lower bass is loose and too up front for my room so far 15 hours or so of break in. There is a set of 703 B&Ws at Tweeters for $2000.00 (returned no box) I was going to give them a listen too. Any thoughts it is a long drive to the other store.

They look sweet. How about selling those?

FYI, av123 has a higher-end version of the Strata Mini that should be out later this year.

You got a link? I see a up-graded finish by April 15. Something else new. Thanks for the help guys. Still looking.

Ah, my speakers!

I love my speakers even more than I love my headphones!

I have a pair of B&W 804s that are my pride and joy!

I'm on the road right now, so I can't post a pic of the actual speakers, but I can post a pic from B&W's web site:



My speaker cables are Synergistic Research B&WSpec6.
