Thumbs up Re: New to AVR here is my home theater

Wes,


Great system. Congratulations on it, and fitting all the components together. Very nice to hear from someone that owns Classe` equipment. I look forward to your pictures.

What kind of music are you rocking and listening to on your system?

Nice system! How do you like your JVC projector? That's a possibility for me.

Cool Re: New to AVR here is my home theater

Thank you, it took a while to put this system together, I am almost there. I can't wait for the SSP-800 to hit the shelf, I hope it is not a disappointment. (T-60 days or there about.)

The JVC is very good, much better that Seleco and at half the price from my perspective. We watch primarily, movies on Blu Ray and the picture is unbelievable it is like a window. Standard DVDs are very good as well thanks to the scaler. But the true test is with blu ray the image seems to jump of the screen.

here are a few reviews for the JVC.

I forgot, the types of music varies from Classical to Rock and Jazz. It is extremely realistic with SACD PinK Floyd, Mahler makes the room live.

I am re-discovering my CD collection and with the media server it is a breeze.

Here are some great SACDs worth listening to in 5.1 Multichannel
Classical:
Mahler: Symphony No. 1 - San Francisco/Michael Tilson Thomas
http://www.sa-cd.net/showtitle/61
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique - Cincinnati SO/Järvi
Berlioz: Requiem - Norrington
Vivaldi: La Stravaganza - Podger/Arte Dei Suonatori
Dvorak: Symphony Nos. 8, 9 - Budapest Festival Orchestra/Fischer
Mozart: Horn Concertos - Civil/Marriner
Bach: The Four Great Toccatas and Fugues - E. Power Biggs (Best Bass SACD ever)
Akiko Suwanai - Poeme

Rock:
Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon ( the best SACD Sony spent over $1M re-recording this CD)
The Police: Every Breath You Take
Roxy Music: Avalon
"Brothers in Arms, 20th Anniversary Edition"
http://www.sa-cd.net/showtitle/3030
Gotan Project: La Revancha del Tango

Jazz:
Norah Jones: Come Away With Me
Stan Getz/Joao Gilberto: Getz Gilberto

Smile Re: New to AVR here is my home theater

Last question that I forgot to answer, The JL Audio sub is the best sub I have heard by far, I compared it to B&W as well as Velodyne and it's not even close.

See all the reviews from the JL Audio site, but more important experience it if you have an opportunity, you might do like me just buy it on the spot. The walls vibrate when you play organ music or watch action movies!

My dealer spent three hours, 45 minutes to set it up and then just stayed just to enjoy the music and movie trailers

Wow, nearly four hours to set up a sub. . . how many six-packs did he bring?
Are you using the balanced connections? That is the only thing extra I wished my 855s had.
