Re: What upgrades are you planning in 2016

No budget for any big upgrades... I would like to get a better "rack" built for my equipment... one that allows easier access to the back of things vs the current setup where access to the back involves trying to slide the equipment around and using a mirror.

If something changes and I magically get more "spare cash" I want to switch over to a projector/screen, but that involves a lot more than just putting in those 2 items as you all know.

No real interest in Atmos yet... I've been trying to avoid thinking about it.

Not planning is the plan. The next upgrade I would foresee is a new projector, but what I want in a projector is:
1: 3000 lumens or more
2: LED
3: 4k
4: $3000 street price

Since I don't think one will be available with my desires for a while I am not planning on any upgrades.

My Home Living room Theater
Samsung 65" FP, Yamaha CX-A5100, Xilica XP4080, (4) Klipsch RP160MS, (4) JBL 8340As, (2) Yamaha P2500s amps, PS3, XBox One, (1) Asus mini pc, (2) Furman Power Conditioners, Darbee Darcet, and a Project RPM 1.5 Carbon turntable..

Funny thing that upgrade bug. I wanted to go Atmos so I started with the Yamaha and Atmos speakers thinking that was that. Boy was I wrong....lol.
Ha! It's never that easy...

I'm with you Ron. I'm a few days work from having my dream theater. The only major upgrades for the future would be an AVR with higher channel count (maybe 9.1.6 or something) and a 4k projector. Neither of those will be within my budget in the foreseeable future though.

Probably install 4 ATMOS speakers. As I already have Goldenear Triton Ones I will go with HTR 7000 for ATMOS install. For ATMOS I will need new Preamp. Thinking about Marantz 8802a. But will wait until Audyssey announce upgraded room correction package due sometime in 2016.

I'm adding 2 Mariana Deep Sea Sound 24" subwoofers with 4K amps, 4 Atlantic Technology Armos ceiling speakers, a Yamaha Atmos enabled receiver, and possibly a new 4 k Blu ray player, IF there's enough software and the price is reasonable.

Re: What upgrades are you planning in 2016

I just added a sub (PSA XV15SE) and had my other fixed (Sunfire True Sub), so I'm pretty good there. Love the dual subs. Even though these two might not seem to pair well on paper, they work great for me. I listen to a lot of metal, and the Sunfire gives more mid bass punch while the PSA goes deeper for movies. I also have an Emotiva XPA-5 on the way (tomorrow hopefully!) to replace two much older amps (one with a decent turn on "thump"). Sometime in 2016 I want a new pre/pro or receiver plus possibly a 4K player. I don't really see me going past 5.1, but I probably will get something Atmos related so I can get plenty of pre-outs, dual sub outs, and hopefully platinum Audyssey. I'm hoping something like a souped up Outlaw 975 type pre-pro comes out - moderate price ($1000-1200) without a ton of features I won't use.

Hoping to upgrade my 2 Klipsch KW - 100, 10 inch subs. Would like a pair of higher power 12inch subs. Perhaps , HSU , SVS, Outlaw or Rhythmic.

I just upgraded my fronts from klipsch KLF 20s to klipsch KLF 30s, I upgraded my avr to the denon avr-x6200w for atmos and dts-x 7.1.4. I ordered a pair of klipsch atmos enabled speakers, and I may order another set soon. I would like to add another subwoofer to get to the lower frequencies that my Cambridge soundworks psw1 master and slave set can't produce.
