Here's what I have so far, very far from done but at least I know what direction I'll be taking now that I have the speaker placement issue solved. If I can drag the table saw outside tomorrow, get to Home Depot (and they have what I need) and it's not so cold I can't feel the blade nick my finger... I may have a totally new look up front.

Looking good Jason. Must be nice to have the front sound stage in place. Speakers look great.
What kind of display is that and what do have powering these beauties ?

I'm trying to imagine a black PB13 Ultra in one of those corners. :bigsmile:

Thank you Mark, I can't begin to tell you folks how great is to be here. It's very relaxing and enjoyable here at The Shack plus there's a ton of great info from really nice people.

Dave, I'm running my Sony STR-DA5400ES to the SVS Towers. Sounds beautiful but I still question my receiver in terms of sound quality. Am I hearing all there is to hear or can it get even better than this. Just second guessing myself.

I added some pics to my project page, it's coming along fairly well. Almost time for the Ultra 13.

So here's the deal....I have REW on my wife's laptop but I am dead in the water till I can get an external soundcard to actually use it the right way. Working on this...

I'm actually holding off on the BFD until I see REW results. While I'm not expecting a flat room there may be a chance that the BFD will simply not get me that much more. Then again... if there are dips and peaks all over the place then I will be on EBAY looking to buy in a heartbeat.

A few years ago I had a Definitive technology Supercube Reference sub in the back corner of my room so it was nearfield and I had the Velodyne SMS-1 on it...which was very easy to use. I did have some peaks and dips to tame with this sub..but I now have no SMS-1 and the PB13 Ultra is in the front right corner of my room.

Here's a link to my setup for anyone interested in a look:

:T I understand. This is the main reason I've been procrastinating using the REW program. I need to many other pieces of gear to use it at this time. In my case I only have BFD and I need a laptop, sound card, cables, Mic blah blah blah. Both of you not so snowy anymore CT members have some exciting stuff coming together.


I'd still suggest a GTG to critique each others systems down the road at sometime.:T

You were saying?

I woke up to rain today and concluded that I would not be sanding the birch plywood I cut oh so perfectly yesterday. I looked outside a little later and saw the ice pellets coming down and now I'm looking out at huge flakes covering the yard and everything else outside. :sick::thud::duh::gah: That should cover it.

I do have a fairly nice project coming together though. The corners of the room up front look nice, I'll try to post a pic before I leave for work in an hour.

No more winter wonderland though... right?

Where's your pic? You got me curious here. Want to see progress...

I've just been adding pics to the thread I started in the HT construction area. The link is in one of my posts on page one of this thread.

Yes, no more winter wonderland but there's just enough snow in my driveway to slip on or get into shoes and then tracked in the house (kids). The weekend was so pleasant with the sun and warm temps, I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Last night, I tried a new paint color for the HT. I've had primer on the walls in all the pics so far and I really wanted to see the color I picked out on the walls. :scratchhead: was what I was doing after opening the paint can. The color is by Ralph Lauren and it's called "hotel room" which makes sense to me since it was fairly close to the color at the Marriot in Boston. It's supposed to be a VERY dark hue of purple/burgundy but after popping the cover off, it just looked purple. I was going for an ominous look and I should have stuck with my original choice of "approaching storm" which was that grey/purple/black the sky turns just before a serious storm. Looks like I need three coats just before I can get a real sense of the color. Oh well, that's really all I can do today anyway.

Pics look great. It easy to see that in the end you will really have something special in this room. Hey..PM'd you about some amp stuff...have a read when you get a chance.
