Can We Talk Audio Gear? You're Set-up?

What are your favorite speakers? Any Bowers & Wilkins fanboys out there?

I've got 605S2s up front with an LC6 center and 602s in the rear.

Had them for nearly 15 years.

YakSpout screwed with this post 09-29-2014 at 02:50 PM Reason: Typo'd 605s in the rear. That's a LOT of speaker for LS/RS.

Yes, a pair of giant columns, in storage back in CA - would blow windows out of this tiny house.

That's exactly my situation. I loaded-up on large high-end audio gear then sold my big house and moved to a much smaller place and have most of the main system in storage.

I have Rotel components with a 1KW 5 channel power Amp. I do miss the teeth rattling volume and detail I got from it. Right now I'm hooked-up to an older Yamaha DSP A1 integrated amp. in 2 channel stereo mode with B&W 804's and ASW 2400 Sub.

I have a budget system. Nothing of true audiophile grade. I have a 3 year old and didnt want to invest too much incase he gets destructive in his developmental years. Have Polk Audio RTI A7's floorstanding, CSI A6 center, RTI A3's in the rear & a HSU research VTF3-MK4 sub. Running it all with an Onkyo TX-NR809. My ears are shot anyway so would be a waste of money for me to spend much more. Wish I had taken better care of them in my youth.

I think those are what I have as well, in Black, IIRC.

I've got a Mark Levinson Dual Class A 200 watts per side and one of his pre-amps. Suffice to say, I don't have much hearing left either...

Lovely sound.

My system consists of 4 JBL 4311B Studio Monitors, Infinity Primus PC351 center channel, Infinity subs, powered by a Yamaha Advantage' RXA 1000 receiver with Hi Def FM and phono input. The front JBLs are bi amped utilizing all the Yamaha's 7 channels. . Sony Blue Ray player.

Never did like the Cracker Jack box sized speakers so common in 5.1 systems or "NO highs, No lows, must be Bose overpriced crap.

Sold all my Audio gear recently and went digital - not sure it was such a good move but that's progress

Sugden Amp, Thorens turntable with SME 3009 II arm. Castle speakers and an old Bose acoustimas AM5 set-up.

Had a couple of sets of Leak valve amps as well which are now worth serious money
