Cool TheMoose's Home Theatre

Well it's not fancy but it's paid for!!



Excuse the wiring mess!



My gear,
TV= Sony KDS-R70XBR2 with speakers removed.
satellite= DirecTV HR20 HD-DVR
Receiver= Sony STR-V444ES (just waiting for the new HDMI 1.3 receivers to replace it)
CD Player= Sony CDP-601ES
Blu-Ray player/game console= Sony Playstation 3
VCR= JVC HR-S7800U
Cassette player= Harmon Kardon CD-491
DVD player= DVP NS3100ES
Power Center= Monster HTS-3500 MkII
Speakers= Paradigm
Fronts= Mini MkII
Center= CC-200
Surrounds= Atoms
Subwoofer= PDR-12
Remote control= Harmony 880

The room is approx 24' X 30' with a vaulted ceiling that is 12' high at the peak, my viewing distance is approx 12'.

It's not High end but not bad on a Firefighters salary!
It really kicks on Blu-Ray movies & the video games on the PS3 are really immersive with a 70" screen & 5.1 Surround.
The next step is to upgrade my receiver, current front runners are the Denon AVR-4308CI & the Sherwood Newcastle R-972 but now that the 1.3 receivers are starting to hit the stores I'll wait till more are released till I make a decision, since I've waited this long I can wait a couple of more months.

After the receiver I'll be saving for new speakers, My current Paradigms were purchased in 1994 (except for the Sub) & they have gone through several receivers & I have been very happy with them so I'm wanting the Paradigm studio v4 speakers next.

The Bedroom is much simpler


TV= Sharp Aquos LC-37D62U 1080p LCD
satellite= DirecTV HR20 HD-DVR.

I may add a simple surround system but then again maybe not, I will add another Playstation 3 for games, Blu-Ray & internet acess.

Just a quick update.
The Sony STR-V444ES is off to my parents house to replace their Dolby Surround receiver.

In it's place is a shiny new Denon AVR3808ci!



The remote is not a good design but I have my trusty Harmony 880 set up to run the Denon.
I'm still digging into the menus, this sucker has a lot of bells & whistles as well as some nice horsepower!
It's going to be a while before I figure everything out.
Fortunately I downloaded the owners manual before I got the receiver so I'm not hunting around blind.

Moose,

At least it's in HD! Fancy is overrated, however, pure enjoyment is not. I like it. Keep it up and thanks for being a huge part of this forum.

Nice addition! Welcome to the world of mid-fi, your paradigms likely sound a lot better now! I really like the new Denons. The on screen menus are much nicer than what anyone else has out there right now.

The Paradigms sound so much better I've decided not to replace them anytime soon!
That saved me about $4K!!
If I'd have known I wouldn't be replacing the speakers I would have gotten the 4308CI instead, but I'm very happy with the 3808CI!
