    Can't believe there is no thread on this subject. My man cave has a 7.1 setup. I just got a new AV processor, XMC-1, with an old UPA-7 amplifier. Aperion Verus 40 towers for FR & FL, Intimus 5B for center SR & SL, old-ass Jamo bookshelfs for RSR & RSL and a PB-12 subwoofer. TV is a Samsung 65Q8.

    I want to add a second SVS subwoofer soon. I just order some "super" tweeters from Aperion last month, and should get them in a couple of weeks. I'm very curious to see what the tweeter addition, well adds.

    Clearly this is not a high-end system, but it sounds great. The dirac ARC on the XMC-1 is very good, much better and more comprehensive than whatever was used in the old UMC-200.

    Haha, I used to be big into home theater like 10 years ago but now kids get in the way. My system consists of an old Onkyo 7.2 receiver and a bluetooth transmitter connected to Beats headphones so I can watch movies at night while the kids sleep. A somewhat dated Vizio 59” tv rounds out the viewing aspect. As kids get older and I have more time I’m foing to look at converting my man cave to a nice home theater room.

    I got kids ranging from 9-18 and they love the home theater! I have a massive couch that can hold about 8 and sound absorbing foam on the bar doors that form the back of the theater.

    In retrospect, I should have gotten the kids more cheap clothing and upgraded my speakers to some obscene full range monsters.

    I hope nobody comes in bragging about their kick-ass Bose system. Bose might be worse than jorts.

    Never heard Revel speakers before and I spent about 45 minutes speaking with the founder. These were unreal, and only 5k per speaker.

    Artisan Fan extolled the virtues of these $50 wooden....things... that kept cables off the ground. Someone chimed in that styrofoam cups would do the trick. Much pseudoscience and ex-post-facto self-confirmation followed.

    Audiophile psuedoscience is the absolute best. And by best I mean the absolute worst. Apparently the placebo effect does not apply to hearing shit for some reason(s).
