Default New to this forum, how's my setup?

Just found this thread and thought 'what the hell i'd better post some pics' My system is made up of the following:-

DISPLAY

Mitsubishi HC1100 1280x720p projector
Screen Technics 110" screen

SOURCE

Toshiba HD-XA2 HD DVD (R.I.P) player
Sony PLaystation 3
Nintendo WII
HTPC

SOUND

Marantz SR-7500 THX select amplifier at 110 watts rms x7
My pride and joy LEVON BRODY tower speakers hand crafted here in Australia
Steinman SMS 6 centre soon to be replaced by Mordaunt Short MEZZO 5 Centre
Steinman SMS 6 dipole surround x 2 pairs
Welling WS602 Subwoofer

Here are some pics of the setup:-

The Equipment



It's taken a long time to get this system together and even though i'm only 24 i had started my quest when i was a pup at 14.... i was interested then and i am obsessed now!

Hotchip,

Welcome to the forum!

Interesting looking speakers, with that driver array do they tolerate being so close to the side walls well?

I assume you took these pictures at several different times.... Why?

Well, the Harmony 1000 is in two different places, oh and all the other remotes on the table next to the one seat..... Sorry, noticed it and had to comment!

Congrats on the rig!

Hi Buddy thanks for the reply. They sound fine where they are as the actual creator of the speakers came and set them up for me. I took the pictures as several different times.. yes. I wasn't aware of breaking any time space continuum rules by this. I have the remotes next to my seat because i prefer the response time they have as opposed to the harmony 1000i. I still can't get it to respond fast enough annoying thing that it is. Almost prefect control with a few small things that can really detract from it. IMHO.

Lately my Harmony 1000 has been locking up and required re-booting. I only use it in my bedroom rig, the reference rig uses the 890, it's cheaper, more hard buttons and come with the RF relayer, which I need as my components are off to the side of my room.

I figured you might be OK with those speakers so far out as the drive set up seems it would work in that situation, glad to hear it does!

Thumbs up Re: New to this forum, how's my setup?

hotchip, congratulations and welcome to the forum. At 24, I had nothing compared to what you have right now. Really great job. I`m sure you are fully enjoying your system.

Tell me, if you don`t mind a little about your speakers. As I`m not familiar with the brand. Are they exclusive to Australia?

I am interested as well. I have also not hear of them. I was still just out of college poor at your age, and did not have that much either - nice job.
