MARTIN LOGAN 7.3 with ROTEL prepro and amps . my subs are BOSTON BT1100 and POLKAUDIO plus my center has a VELODYNE SPL8 and each surround has its own 10in POLKAUDIO sub . Soon a 100+in screen and projector and oppo 3 D player. Also have PS3 ,XBOX ,SONY sacd and a HDradio tuner . My clean power is RICHARD GREY and MONSTER. My cables are AUDIOQUEST, TRIBUTARIES and MONSTER. MITSUBISHI 73" 1080P 3D TV WD-73833. I made some changes to my room . I got a 100" screen a projector and i made some new racks for my system . The are pretty cool they have led lights that are in sync with all the led lights in the room behind the screen and ceiling . All led lights can dim and change color with a remote . I cut , painted and installed some 3form on the front wall and ceiling with some back lit 3form bubble plex .
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.
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.
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 .
