Oh, classics! Have you tried placing your promedia center at the bottom of your TV so that it lines up with the tweeters of the Heresy? How is the relatively tiny center hold its end of the duty compared to the Heresy?

Nah, I'm going to upgrade the center/rears/sub and receiver so I didn't do much in the way of setup positioning. I just moved the sub around and pointed the center at our ear levels in the viewing seats.

That center is pretty efficient because the crappy HTIB receiver menu allows some db +/- adjustments.

Heresy II's all around? something else?

I'd love Heresy II's all around but since they're no longer in production that won't be happening. I'm the original owner of my matched SN'd pair so I know exactly how they have been treated. No ebay buying of speakers for me.

I'm looking at the SVS subs and Rocket towers/centers but that's after I upgrade the receiver. I've got time to ponder so it's all good. I love researching/auditioning/shopping for audio products!

The screen shots suck, they do not do the actual image justice... I was too lazy to setup properly and do long exposure...Was shooting with a Lumix DZ8 and I wasn't expecting much on low light shots and I was right.

PS The room is about 300 Sq Ft, I appropriated one of 3 bedrooms we have on the second floor for my ht/computer room. To give you a bit of scale, the screen is about 2 metres wide.


edited to remove unintended smileys...


I should probably update the pictures...the optoma is gone, replaced by a HC4900 and the screen was replaced too.

Very simple for now, just moved into my new apartment. The box is Logitech Z-5300s. I had them set up at my other apartment, but I don't know if I want to keep them again or spend $$ to move up to a real HT setup, or not even worry about it ATM.

Here's my HT setup.
TV-- Panasonic 50" Plasma 50px50u using the cable card since I HATE STB's
Receiver-- Onkyo 502 (75watt)
Mains-- Polk RTI 12's
Surround-- Polk FXI 3
Center-- CSI3
Sony DVD/VHS player
CD player-- JVC 200 disc mdl (at least 10-12 years old)

No Sub (no need for one with these speakers. If you can convince me to get a sub, please do so.)
Living Room1
Living Room2
Living Room3

I know I need more power to push the speakers. Upgrading to an Onkyo TX-SR805 in the near future

Question......... Will I really need an Amp after upgrading to the new Receiver?

Do your walls shake when you play this?

I would say adding a sub will make a LOT more difference in your final sound than upgrading your receiver.


I would test this but the file is non burnable through Nero and Windows Media Player. Tried to put the song to disc to test it in the living room but it's a no go. Do you by chance have it in MP3 form?

Here you go sir

I should have mentioned before, this contains a ton of very low frequency stuff, so be careful.
