No dedicated room in our starter home, which encouraged this 5.2 in our living room. Refurbished and used makes this golden age of audio not only intriguing, but feasible on a shoestring budget. Grew up in Seattle and somewhat partial towards Carver and Sunfire. Blue Jean Cable throughout.
Ear level with some vibration pads with an angle. Bought refurbished.
Wide dispersion. Angled down towards the listening positions. Debating on relocating to the sides. Bought refurbished.
Bought used. Always been a Bob Carver fan. To address the vertical dispersion the left and right channel are flipped to ensure the ribbon is a little above ear level from the main seating position. Extremely sweet, a little forward, but great for HT usage. The wife loves the fact that they're hung on the wall.
Refurbished. Currently exploring TIDAL FLAC through HEOS with navigation through the iPhone - what a convenience.
Monoprice Monolith 5 Channel X 200
Fantastic price. At higher volumes a little bit congested.
Refubished. Enjoying the the Dolby Vision.
Blacks are impressive.
Amplifier directly into the wall outlet. Only the Marantz, LG, and Sony connected. Reliability has been solid for the past 5 years.
Salamander Designs Credenza
Well designed with what appears to be real wood.
Hsu Research VTF-3 MK5HP
Great customer support. Strong output for the price. Will likely add another VTF-3 down the line.
HTD Level 3 Powered Subwoofer
Handed down from a family member. Will likely be replaced by another HSU in the near future.
Handed down from a family member years ago. I have absolutely no idea whether they work, but since I have them, I figure they may as well be used.
mjcmt - you must be telapathic! I’ve definitely been thinking about buying one on the used market. Prior to the recession I had a mint Sunfire Cinema Grand Architect II, but I eventually had to sell it given the times.
