Eventually I want to try out a set of HD598's or A900X's but not many places around here will have them in store, let alone both of them for a comparison.

Our current setup is for home theater is some B&W's in 5.1, 50" Samsung plasma and I have my HTPC hooked up to it as well for blu-ray, flacs and mkv's.

There was a guy on fj who was really into home theatre, had some great martin logan stuff and a real sweet setup. If you are curious go find his thread, his name is Hocky. Cool read

Avsforum is a great place for info. Some of those guys have full blown theaters. One guy is in the process of building one underground for soundproofing.

We're not huge sound fanatics, so what we have, works for us. No need to blow any ear drums, but it sounds nice

Living Room:


Samsung 43" Plasma
Samsung Air Sound bar w/ remote sub
Custom HTPC

Who needs Cable...

Basement:


Panasonic 52"
JVC 5.1 Surround speakers
Custom HTPC

Again...who needs cable.

And also in the basement, if we want loud, just for the sake of loud, I can always turn these on behind the couch area, and the 4 others around the basement...

Finally have a sub.. in a non-conventional way. Got a new car and don't plan on putting a sound system in it. So my Polk Audio DXi from the old car is now in my living room.

Had to pop the sub out of the box and wire the coils in series for 8 ohm (originally parallel for 2 ohm). Powering it with an AudioSource amp connected to the sub pre-out on the reciever.

I've been avoiding getting a sub because I'm in an apartment, but my neighbor has been super loud lately so eff it.
