This is my Home Theatre system that I pieced together from used components. It cost me barely anything and sounds very decent. It has its flaws, but for the money I can't complain. I use it more for listening than I do for movies, so the lack of a subwoofer, currently, isn't felt that hard. I plan on upgrading the speakers to Magnepans, possibly, in the near future. Then I need to look at getting a better receiver or power amplifer+preamplifier.

    • Onkyo TX-SV717 PRO
    An old, used receiver that puts out 110 watts per channel. Used to drive my floorstanding speakers. It has a phono preamp, which I connect my turntable to. It has a preamp out, including an RCA connection for a subwoofer. Also, it has an amazing feature: the "Select Tone" button. This EQ's the signal, adding more bass and treble, to simulate a louder sound without actually raising the dB as much as you would have to in order to get it to sound as loud. I use it to EQ poor recordings that lack bass as well as for a more "live performance" sound.

    110 watts per channel into 8 ohms
    Frequency: 20Hz to 30kHz
    Total harmonic distortion: 0.08%
    Damping 60
    • Mirage M7SI Speakers
    Two-way, floorstanding, reflex-loaded loudspeaker. Drivers: 8" woofer, 1" titanium-dome tweeter, and 5" full-range rear drive-unit. Crossover frequencies: 480Hz, 2kHz. Recommended amplifier power: 50W–175W RMS. Maximum power handling: 175W RMS. Rated sensitivity: 84dB/W/m anechoic, 88dB in-room. Impedance: 6 ohms nominal, 4 ohms minimum.

    They've been refurbished with new rear speakers (of brand and model I do not know).
    • N/A Windows Computer
    My source for storing my entire music collection as well as running my preferred media player, Foobar2000. Current music library size is at 1.2 TB.
    • Technics SL-5
    My turntable that will NEVER be upgraded (I'm not a big vinyl lover). It has an automatic return feature, which is nifty.

    Wow and flutter: 0.025% WRMS
    Rumble: -78dB
