Well, here are a few pictures of my first surround sound system that i put together. the Speakers are Acoustic energy Neo line. I had the floor standers first connected to my hifi, but purchased a matching center and sub at a later date. The rears i am using are Acoustic energy Aelite 2.
The amp is an onkyo 605, which gives more than enough grunt for my small ish living room but will make the most of it when we get a bigger place.
Im really happy with the system, its been paid by working full time while also studying at uni full time, so im pretty proud of myself. Its a lil cramped, but i rathered buying a larger system than getting a small one until i move out. I'l add a few pics of my cyrus later running with another set of AE Aelite 2's on stands, but everyone knows what a cyrus looks like (Amp+cd) they aint exactly changed much over the last decade.
