Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

good luck with your system, I am also going through growing pains right now and just trying to decide which way I want to go.

Sorry don't have a digital camera but here's the links to the parts I used.

The whole goal was a budget build and they sound way better than I was expecting, running in 2.0 the imaging is good enough to keep the dialog centered.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

Mains retailed for $2500, I picked them up for $1400 new.

Sub retailed for $1650 I got it for $1400.

Not cheap but not ridiculous either. Price isn't everything, my main PSB M2 Platinums cost less than other speakers I've had but sound better. I'd love them even if I paid list.

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.
Hey, I'm glad you FINALLY get to get that SVS system. You've been talking about it for months and I've been hoping you'd be able to pull the trigger at some time . Now, not to get greedy, but I wonder if you could move up to the PB12-NSD (it's only $150 more)...after all, even with the PB12, the HT system will cost you less than the appeasement fees .

And now, so I don't get busted by Sonnie for being off topic (he's really good at realizing how well I waste space on this forum! ), I'll take a guess that between speakers/subs I've spent around $2700 (this includes really cheap equipment I don't use anymore). Add in a modest $400 AVR, FBQ 2496, DVD player, HD DVD player, and PS3 and I'm up in the $4000 range. Again, modest, but not bad for a college student. It brings down my 900 cubic foot room .

Congrats again, hyghwayman .

Free!!!


Left overs from my sisters old shelf system.

Just using these untill I can build some of my own.

They sounded horible on the aiwa system...but hooked up to my yamaha reciever and they actualy sound pretty good.

The woofers don't move alot of air but they play low...and sound pretty decent considering what they are.

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

Just try to explain to her logically, that spending 1k on a system is the same as taking 1k and throwing it away,
while spending alittle more would give you the benefits of value, investment, fun, listening experience, enjoyment....
