what kind of setup do I have?
I believe I have a modest setup, but it's still alot of fun!
I have an HDTV SONY 55 inch LCD REAR PROJECTION TV. Sound comes from a JVC receiver that allows a 7.1 speaker setup. The receiver is rated at 110 watts per channel, with a line signal for the sub woofers. The front center speaker is an Altec Lansing two way speaker, with dual midrange speakers flanking the tweeter. The two front speakers are magnapan speakers. The two rear speakers are Bose 3.1 speakers. the two back speakers are home made ported three way speakers. I also run two YAMAHA 150 watt sub woofers for a total of over three hundred watts of power for the subwoofers alone. The sound is a little uneven due to the inefficient magnapans, and the other four speakers being much more efficient. But the dual sub woofers really kick butt! Since I live in an apartment, I only crank up the system occaisionally and run low volumes after 9 pm.
I run 1 karaoke dvd player, 1 single disc dvd player, 1 samsung dvd player that upconverts to hdtv levels, 1 vhs player, 1 laser disc player, 1 carousel 5 cd player, and 1 belt drive turntable. I have over 250 vinyl albums, over 500 dvds, over 300 cds, and approximately 150 laser discs. I also have two desktop computers and one laptop.
I hope to build a consolidated pc controlled entertainment center soon, but I'm still waiting for a shakeout on two front. First a decent OS to run the system, and second, for the hd/blu-ray dust to settle.
Do I like my video/sound setup? Very much so. Except for the times I jump to answer the phone, only to find that it's actually ringing on the screen.
