What you guys running for home audio gear?

Post by STROKD »

I know a fair amount more about car audio, but I have a decent home setup. I have the following:
Krell KAV-2250 running an older set of B&W 802 Nautilus
Krell KAV-3250 running my B&W CDM-1s till I can afford 802 or 803s for rear fill
Denon 3205 as a pre-pro and running my side surround for blend, and digital EQed for room space with the Denon RTA mic.
Velodyne HTS-15
Velodyne DD-12 tuned with the mic to blend with the 15. 15 is crossed at 60, and the 12 is crossed from 20-80, 802s run 80 up.

I guess that's about it, just thought I'd see what other setups you stereo gurus were using for home audio.

Cheers.

NICE! the 62" is it a Regza? Those TVs are amazing, I got a Toshiba 65" DLP, its about a year old, but not near as cool as the Regzas! :shock:

Whats funny is when I have all my speakers on, my girl says my house sounds better than a club... she stopped going cause she says it sounds distorted and isn't loud anymore. :lol:

You guys sound like you all have some nice stuff! Home Audio is almost as fun as car stereos! :D

tv: Samsung 4661 46" 1080p
receiver: Onkyo 605
BD Player: PS3
Power Conditioning: Belkin PureAV Battery Backup
Speakers: eD a6- 6t6 towers, a6- 6t6 mtm center, a6- 5t5 mtm pair
sub: 12" xxx w/ dayton hpsa1000 plate amp (needs new box)
wiring: everything is connected through hdmi, all cables from monoprice.com

i paid a little over $2,000 for everything! cant beat the eD speakers for the price. if i would have gone with aperion, av123, or similar, i would have had to settle for bookshelf fronts.

my sub needs a new box! it looks ghetto with the plate amp sitting on top. also, it isnt tuned low enough for HT.
