EndersShadow setup

I've been lurking a bit here, so I figured I might as well go all in . Here are some pics of my HT setup with a equipment list and some pics:

Home Theater Equipment List:
  • TV: Panasonic 60" ST30 Plasma
  • Receiver/Pre-amp: Integra DTR 5.9
  • Amplifier: Carver AV-705x, Carver M1.0t
  • Fronts: Polk LSi 15's modded with a db840 sub
  • Center: Polk LSi C
  • Surrounds: Polk LSi F/X (wall mounted)
  • Misc Gear: Xbox 360, Samsung BP-1600 blu ray player, Uverse DVR, Pioneer laserdisc player
  • Equipment not pictured: Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64

Speaker Cables:
  • Left, Right & Center: Kimber Kable 8VS internally bi-wired with bananas on both ends
  • Surround Left, Surround Right: Monoprice 14 gauge with Monster Quick Connect banana's on the amp end and quickflex connectors on the speaker end

Interconnects:
  • Left & Right: 1.5m Kimber Kable Hero
  • Center: .5m Kimber Kable Hero
  • Surround Left, Surround Right: 1m Emotiva X series (soon to be replaced by .5m Kimber Kable Heros)

Long term upgrades left to do:
  • Replace Monoprice HDMI cables with 3 1m Audioquest Cinnamon HDMI cables and 1 2m Audioquest Cinnamon HDMI cable
  • Replace Samsung blu-ray player with Pioneer S790 player or Oppo 95/103
  • Replace Integra 5.9 with a Pioneer SC-67
  • Home Theater Setup Pictures















HT Cable Management pics (not accurate as to interconnects and speaker cables)









Here are a couple quick pics of the speaker cables I am running now, Kimber Kable 8VS internally bi-wired with bananaís on both ends.






Here are some more of my newly refurbished Carver M1.0t amp. Its 500+ wpc @ 4 ohm. It has had a IEC plug added, new binding posts, all caps and resistors replaced, and White LEDís to replace the stock Red ones.










Here are a couple videoís of it in action on my Polk LSi 15ís. It makes them hit HARD!!







2 Channel System Equipment List:
  • USB DAC/Headphone amp/Pre-amp: Audio GD NFB-5
  • Amplifier: Fisher 460t tube amp with matched set of Soviet tubes
  • Speakers: Polk RTA 11TL's
  • Misc sources: Technics SL-B3 turntable, Denon 3910 universal player

Speaker Cables:
  • Monoprice 14 gauge wire with Nakamichi banana's on both ends

Long term upgrades left to do:
  • Purchase fully modded Carver C-1 pre-amp (new IEC, remote control, caps & resistors & LED)
  • 10 foot pair of Kimber Kable 4VS or 4TC with banana's on both ends
  • 2 sets of .5m Kimber Kable PBJ interconnects (for Denon 3910 and Audio GD DAC)
  • 1 set of 1m Kimber Kable PBJ interconnects (for Pre to amp connection)
  • 1 1m Audioquest Cinnamon USB cable
  • Better tubes/extra sets

2 Channel System Pics:

My setup right now is all digital. I am using XBMC as my Media Player to send out the FLAC files via ASIO to the Audio GD NFB-5 via USB. The Audio GD has a variable output that I am using to connect to the tube amp. The interconnects are Audioquest G-Snakes. Nothing special with the speaker wires, just Monoprice 14 gauge for right now.

Once I get the modified Carver C-1 I will be able to connect up all my other sources and have a system capable of playing every source out there (FLAC, DVD-A, SACD, LP's) minus cassette tapes and 8 Tracks

Thanks guys! It looks even better right now with the MIT's gone and the Kimbers being the right size.
