my house is over 100 years old. I have many smaller rooms. Like my livingroom has pocket doors deviding it into two. I have 6 rooms on my first floor counting the kitchen. Then on my 2nd floor i have 5 bedrooms and a bathroom. I really don't have room for a room tuning kit. I thought about going up to my 3rd floor and finishing off the other half that is unfinished. It would make a room around 39 foot by 14 foot. with a pitched celling going anywere from 12 or 14 foot down to the corner off to the side or so. My roof is freaky it has a flat area in the center before it goes down. As you can see it already has some windows up there. as you see the front of the house the unfinished area i have is on the left side of the house. there is also an area in the back of the house that isn't fixed up into a room.But you know how it is...,some will criticize you no matter what you do. While others will support and defend you until..., while the majority aren't even paying attention because they are so involved with their own stuff.
I will say this, "Well after winning all those speakers (a room full) he definitely needed room tuning and that stuff is expensive, I would have gone for it."
The choice is yours but I hope you don't feel bad about winning. Don't be a martyr..., you don't need the sub but you could use the room tuning kit, right.
Don't listen to me...
Thats a good idea leej. Some of them like this one you had to be more active then lost of other ones with having to post 10 post a month for many months. I am still waiting on my prize. I am not even sure when it's coming or if it's even shipped yet. Everytime I hear something I am looking outside to see if its fedex or ups or whoever.Congratulations! Surely you'll enjoy your new speakers. Especially, with the twin subs and the AS EQ1. What a nice package. I am imperssed with all the giveaways, here. Maybe, I need to start participating.
Thanks collije. Keep an active account and you may win a contest. I am sure they will have more big giveaways. I saw them give away all kinds of cool stuff since I joined the shack. like high end bluray players, amps, speakers, and other items. to many to list off. Every time you turn around they are having another giveaway.Congrats Jason. Have fun breaking them in :clap:
Thats what I had to do. I bought ends at radio shack and then went to lowes and bought speaker wire by the foot and made my own interconnect cables. What fun!Hope you take your time with the review. Dont feel bad about the lack of cables in your area either, I cant find any length in my town. Its also a joy living in florida in that regard as almost all the decent interconnect dealers are in far off california and I always seem to have a order "on the way." In a pinch Ill go to my local radio shack and pay way too much for way too little...
It's funny reading this post as I run into the same situation. Since I order all my cables from MP I end up getting 3 different lengths in case I don't know which one will work the best.I know just what you mean. I always buy extra stuff when ordering from the online dealers, thinking I'm saving money not buying from local retailers. But then my neighbors and firends always seem to need everything, before I get to ues them.
Thats why I was letting people know I dont have a high end receiver. I am sure an upgraded receiver would really impress me even more.I had a chance to read it before it was taken down, good review Jason and glad youre so happy with the new system. I dont recall you being specific on your model sony, but I know when I went from a mid-range sony to a marantz 7002 (shortly thereafter returned and upgraded to my current onkyo 3007) my acoustimas system really came to life. Im sure your upgrades will come over time but never underestimate the power of a good receiver (especially if your current doesnt support the latest lossless formats). Basically if you think youre impressed now just wait till you upgrade your receiver!
