I wanted to show my humble system. I’m very happy with the sound. For a long time, all I could do was a Pioneer VSX-820, Klipsch quintet IIs, and a Klipsch KSW-10 because of WAF. I suppose I never knew what I was missing. Anyway, WAF is no longer a concern (long story for a different venue), which is why I’m in the 1400 sq ft apt.
Now running 4.1.2 with a Pioneer Elite SC-LX501 driving Pioneer SP-ESF73 mains and a Hsu VTF2-MK5. TV is Samsung JS8500 55 inch. BD player is Samsung 7500. Sennheiser 558s for when I don't want to disturb the neighbors.
and Klipsch RF-10 surrounds.
The old gear will go with my son to college (finishing freshman year), which is more than I ever had at that age. The sofa will also go with the boy, as I recently added the recliners.
All in all, very happy for now, though I will probably be adding a matching CC soon. Otherwise the speakers are fantastic. LOVE LOVE LOVE my Hsu! I run it sealed, EQ1, Q 0.5 for most music and open one port and go Q 0.7 for movies.
My one regret is with the AVR. I wish I would have been dialed into these forums before I started buying. I would have splurged a bit more for the Denon 4300 to have Audyssey and pre-outs for potential growth. Oh, well. The boy will (hopefully) graduate in three years. That might just be the time for another upgrade.
I guess I’m hooked, now that I have a small taste of quality sound.
