Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

Luckily nothing seems to overheat, but my first PS3 died within the first night of playing it, so that's why I have it elevated. Guessing I got a lemon, but it doesn't hurt to have better airflow.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

Let's see here...I don't think I've ever tallied it all up together at once; probably through fear of the result...LOL!

Aerial Acoustics 10T (F L/R) $8300.00 w/ dedicated Sound Anchor stands.
Aerial Acoustics CC3B (Center) $2200.00 w/ dedicated Sound Anchor stand.
2 pair of Energy Veritas 2.0RI (4 Rears) $1800.00.
2 X Definitive Technology 1500TL+ (Subs) $1800.00. (looking to sell these and upgrade)

Total: $14,100.00

Whoa...now I know why I'd never done that before...BUT: Worth every penny!

I get up...I get the paper...I read the obituaries...if I don't see my name; I go ahead and have breakfast! George Burns.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

I spent $103 from parts express building my 3-ways, and they sound phenomenal, course the vifa tweeters made the difference with the goldwood woofers and mids, but I would compare them to speakers costing more then 5 times the price, if you doubt me, just try them, goldwood makes most of the speaker components that people spend a lot more money for in commercially built systems.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

It was right around 2K, just a bit over. Ascend 340s across the front, htm200 for the rears and HSU VTF3-MK2 for the sub. It's not the best setup on the block but it serves my needs well. I'm happy with it.

And that is all that really matters.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

My $69.oo Cutris HTiB (DVD and 5.1 speakers) have gotten me by for three (3) years. Fot the last two (2) years I've had those little 40w cubes hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-816 7.1SS Receiver w/ a Powered 40w subwoofer I aquired from a friend for $20.oo.

Now I know these whimpy 40w speakers and sub will never sound great but they do sound better than the stock speakers in my Sony KD-34XBR970 HDTV.

I'm going to up grade my speakers very soon to the SBS-01 5.1 system, which should compaired to my current set-up.
