Alright, I'm doing it. I'll pull it all out. I wish I had a center channel stand.

Those 807v's need to breathe!

So this is what I'm looking at now!

Night and day difference!!! Just recal'ed, all matched, phase tuned the subs, and am tweaking now.

The 807v's have absolutely come back to life. The sound 3x as big. They are producing the depth and width of sound that I have been missing since we moved.

Now to see what happens when she comes home?!?

My wife was not too happy when I bought the a SVS SB-3000 subwoofer to replace an older smaller SVS, and did not look too thrilled when I bought the second one :oops:

So she loved the change...err... Yeah not so much!

But I think I turned her around when we watched the fantastic Alien movie from the anthology last night. She could not believe how much more open, even, and clear the sound was in this less than aesthetically pleasing presentation.

Definitely need some surrounds to get the 3d immersion I'm looking for. Hopefully I can find a carpenter to open up the front, so I can get a pair of those beautiful SongTower RT's up there.

Tbh, the low end from the Sunfires is remarkably defined, tight, and thick when needed. I think a larger pc-4k would help with overall pressurization, but that is lower on the list with the new cost of remodel and towers added to the budget.

Current short term plan:

Open the front sound field via remodel.

Get some appropriate surrounds in place.

Replace the Marantz sr5007 with an anthem 720.



Long term plan:

Get towers and matching center for front field.

Revise in ceiling placement and quality.

Reconfigure and rack mount gear with integrated control system.


In the meantime I'm going to enjoy what sounds like the system that I had been so accustomed to hearing (at least up front).

PS. I know they aren't made anymore, but do any of you know if there are any professional reviews of the focal chorus 807v? The cc800 center leaves something to be desired, but the bookshelves themselves sound nice.

That looks WAY better. Congratulations! But wait, I don’t see a pc4k? :neener:

Btw, Brainerd.
*fingers crossed*

The sub upgrade is definitely still in my mind, and on the list. It will happen, it's just a matter of when at this point.

It's so beautiful up the Brainerd area! Have you been up there long?

Ok. Just as long as you keep that baby on your list. Lol!

Yeah, lived here my whole life. You ever get up this way? Seems like many of you guys “down in the cities”(lol) have cabins up here. Hey, you’re not the weather guy are you?

I’m surprised(auto corrected to Surly, yum) you can find someone to tackle your project. Seems like there’s plenty of builders and such around you. No?
