RE: Home Cinema Systems we are happy with

Yeah, I think it's a good idea to see what's working well together.

Speakers: Tannoy Arena (later package with TS300 sub)

Amp: Denon 1911

Projector: Epson EH-TW3500

BluRay: Samsung BD C6900

 

Been very happy with it. Great pcitures and sound. The Denon was acquired as part of a settlement for a broken just out of warranty Marantz 6001, and I thought I'd fairly quicky replace it with something more expensive. However it's been very good for both films and music, probably better than the previous Marantz, (but doesn't look as nice). Slightly less rich, but tighter bass and slightly more detail.

RE: Home Cinema Systems we are happy with

I'm extremely happy with mine now for music and movies. Precise and invisible. The only thing I might try is an Antimode Dual Core EQ for the subwoofer to see if I can improve on what I'm getting already.

 

Mitsubishi HC7000 projector

Sony BDP5000ES and Panasonic DMP-BD60 (multi-region) Bluray players

Audiolab 8200AP pre-processor

Rotel RMB1575 power amp

KEF LS50 speakers (five all round)

Ken Kreisel DXD12012 subwoofer

RE: Home Cinema Systems we are happy with

I am pleased with my AV system -

Yamaha BD-S1900 Blu Ray player

Chord Electronics DSP8000 Audio Video processor

ATC SCM100ASL active Professional monitors (front L & R)

ATC C3CA active centre monitor

ATC SCM50ASL active Professional monitors (rear L & R)

ATC C6 - SCM0.1/15 active sub

A super clean, stable and near seamless soundfield which (with the aid of the components high resolution and massive power reserves) also reproduces an extremely hard hitting dynamic, tight, powerful sound in an uncoloured and natural manner.

ATC active multichannel monitoring Smile

Thanks

Rick @ Musicraft

Yes, I love mine - recent changes; my new Yamaha is excellent and my Apex rears have been replaced by Proficient Audio w690 in walls and they are an improvement for sure. See sig for the rest.
