I started with an Onkyo HTIB 7.1 system, and I've been gradually replacing all the components.

Dual AV123 MFW-15 subs - $1100
AV123 X-Statik fronts and X-Voce center - $1200

I just ordered a pair of PSB Imagine-S surrounds for $900 and a Denon AVR-4311ci for $1600, so I'm in for about $3200 on speakers and $4800 total. Only the rear surrounds will be left from the original HTIB.

Hello,
Linn makes fantastic equipment and are one of my favorite A/V Companies out there. I am sure your Speakers bring a smile to your face every time you play a piece of music.
Cheers,
JJ

The MSRP for my 5 speakers was $4000.
I got really lucky and caught a weekend sale at an authorized dealer and got them for $2150.
Give the 'ol brick and mortar a point ;-)

my 5 Behringer B2031P cost me $444 and 2 Allison subs $350. So $794 for the speakers and they are fairly high performance. I got a bargain on the Onkyo TX-NR1007 for $450.

The main systems speakers costs are as follows: home theater using custom factory Klipsch Jubilee speakers approx. $9000 plus the Danley Sound Labs DTS-10 horn subwoofer around $1000, 2-channel digital using Marting Logan Prodigy approx. $ 12000, 2-channel vinyl rig using DIY approx. $3000 spent (would cost about $10000 if purchased, vintage system using Altec Valencia appox. $800. The gear covers the spectrum: McIntosh, Conrad Johnson, Krell, Carver, Shanling, Clearaudio, Spread Spectrum Technologies, Oppo, Onkyo, Yamaha, JBL, Parasound, Pioneer, and on... call it a hobby, passion, obsession, lunacy.

Hi there.

Athena's F2.2 - slightly enjoyed at a local Future Shop - $599
New Athena's C1.2 and R1.2 - $300 from a store in Rochester (not including the $140 spent on booze at a liquor store in upper New York state - kid in a candy store syndrome :jiggy:)
And finally, Athena P4100 sub - $500 dollars bought locally.
So the grand total comes in somewhere around $1500 - depending on the value of the Canadian dollar :laugh:

Sonus Faber Concerto speakers, fixed stands, and a Solo center speaker about $2000.
Radio Shack Minimus 7 surrounds...free from my dad.
Sony STR-DE835 receiver for power right now.

Eventually I will build a sub to go with the Concerto's, but that is after building a tube preamp and tube monoblocks to power them. All the preamp and monoblock chassis work is done and parts all purchased, have to find time to do the solder work and test.

The wife thought my speakers cost $7000 and never said a word for 2 years!!! I love my honey, she is truly an angel. The big joke between us now is everything we look at to purchase is worth "less than those $7000 speakers."
