    Default My setup is near completion - with pics

    So, I'm finally to a point where I feel comfortable posting pics of my setup. Have my amp, have my LSi9s on Target stands, my HSU sub is finally installed... it's coming together.
    Next items on the list are a new source (DVD/CD - taking suggestions!) and rears. I might go with LSi15s and scoot the 9s to rear duty, or might just go LSiFX. Being on the 3rd floor with no elevator, I might stick to the latter of the two.
    You can see in the pic how my amp anodization is faded. A bit of a disappointment when I opened it up. But it makes my speakers sing, which is the important part.

    Looks nice. I'd suggest removing the audio rack and placing all of your components on the TV rack, if possible. That way, you can move the right speaker over and improve the sound. Try toe-in, as well.

    Sunfire would probally sell you a new faceplate for around 80-100 bucks.

    Looks great man. Toe in is a must with the LSi9.

    Or either bring the rack forward, no need to cramp the tv stand, either buy a new face plate, or just a can of flat black and spray it.

    I think it looks nice. If it were me I'd keep the 9's as mains and get the FX's for surrounds.

    Implying that I should mount the TV on the wall? Cuz if that's what you're suggesting, I'm afraid it's out of the question. I've thought about it, but I don't want to be drilling into this wall, not to mention trying to run wires through the wall.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I've thought about toe-in myself. Will get to that later today.

    I agree with some the placement suggestion. Can you move the rack to another wall and put the TV stand in the center of that wall and spread out the speakers?

    Just a nick-picky thing. That would be my only suggestion. Looks GREAT! Me and my monitor setup are seriously jealous right now!

    Wish I knew you were looking for a source, I just sold my Pioneer Elite 59avi locally. Would've given you a chance to take it home, great player for both movies and music. Great SACD in stereo and 5.1

    There really isn't another wall to put my component rack. I've considered it myself. And if I were to relocate it, I'd need a new HDMI cable, a longer power cord for the receiver, and maybe some other ICs. Not my idea of fun...
    Here's a layout of my family room, so you have an idea of my limited space. :)

    Nice setup Dane, can I suggest some bias-lighting for your big screen? Look into Ideal Lume from Cinemaquest. Best $45 you'll ever spend on video. It casts a dim 6500 kelvin white light behind your TV to reduce eye strain and enhance color when watching in the dark. It rocks.

    Transport: Oppo BDP-103/USB HDD (flac)
    DAC/Preamp: Benchmark DAC/PRE
    Power Amp: Parasound HCA-1500A
    Speakers: Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 Monitor
    Cables: Kimber Hero/8TC; DH Labs D-75

    I did this for a while. I pieced it together with parts from Menards and Home Depot. Problem ended up that the light unit was visible from the seat, as it was sitting on the stand behind the narrow plasma platform. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Real nice looking rig there, Dane. Looks to me like you've pretty much done the best possible set-up with a somewhat difficult space. I really like the looks of those LSi-9's. What frequency do you cross them over to the Hsu?

    Right now I'm crossing them over at 60Hz. Thanks for the kind words. :)

    Don't change a thing, looks GREAT.
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.
