Mj I play very little video games maybe once a month on the Xbox 1 . The system gets used mainly for sports and movies and music. The led lights are dimmable so they don't really light up the room or I can turn them off when watching movies. I did return the Cary mono blocks that really sucked to do but I couldn't use them . I did replace my audio quest speaker cables for my front 3 channels with custom Clear day triple shotgun cables. The front sound stage got alot better for 2 channel music. Paul with Clear day was a pleasure to deal with and I recommend trying a demo with his cables your system at no charge very cool. I am looking to upgrade my prepro looking for one that has descent 2 channel dacs and atmos and DTSx . I also want a new projector 4k .I'm going to cedia in October I might wait till then to upgrade both.


When you refer to your system as a 'game room' are you referring to playing games on something like the PS3?
Aren't the leds distracting for movies?


Well no luck with the amps my power is not good enough for the better amps . It sucks I wanted to improve my 2 channel with the better amps but it wasn't meant to be maybe when I get a new place with better grounding. Well I guess I will spend my money on a new prepro or a new Sony 4k projector.The Cary amps did sound alot better than the Rotel amps but they must be alot more sensitive to bad power.


I just added a pair of Cary SA 500.1 mono blocks . My problem is a have a hum on both amps . I did lift the ground pin on the PS audio AC 12 power cables with no effect. I tried different cables with no change. I have 3 circuits 1 20amp for my amps ,1 20amp for my projector and cable box ,and 1 15amp for prepro ,oppo .I would appreciate any help I could get thanks.


K, looks Great!



System edited: I added another rotel 1090 amp to my front speakers . It sounds good but the system still does not sound the way i want .Maybe i need different speakers .


System edited: I made and installed everything in the room . It was alot of work but love building stuff for my room and a few friends of mine . Sorry the pictures suck they do not do the room justice . Please tell me what you think . My system sounds good but i would like a upgrade in the 2 channel not sure what to change amps, speakers or both .


System edited: I made some changes in the last year . I don't have the big rack between my left speaker and tv i built one that goes across the floor my imaging got alot better for 2 channel . I got the oppo it sounds good using the analog outs. I would like to improve the sound of my 2 channel section but i cant figure out what my weakest link is any recommendations would be appreciated . Im thinking of adding a ps audio P5 or powers cables or both .I would like to mod the oppo if it would improve my audio .


very nice set-up,i see you are another martin logan fanatic, i had the distinct pleasure of meeting gale sanders on two different occasion during the premiere of the prodigys,great guy.i also had a 5.1 ml system,but i moved a way from the whole home theater thing sort of ,back to my first love two channel audio. i never tried the game thing,but i bet the sonic's are two die for.have fun.


Thank you the room is lots of fun . I need to tweak and clean up the mess ive made as far as the speaker placement and set up and my cable situation . Other than that love system . Im helping a friend with his system take a look the name is 8' MARTIN LOGAN CENTER CHANNEL we need suggestions to help improve my system and his .He needs help to match amps with his LOGANS.


Let the games begin! Looks like you are set to blow the roof off the house and rock the foundation. Looks like big fun. Play on, play on.
