Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

We had been wanting a 5.1 surround setup for ages but just couldnt justify the money we wanted to spend on it. Then we a JB hifi catalgoue, and there was a bargain we couldnt pass up.

$999
Sherwood 5x110w receiver (RD-6105)
Some cheap warehouse damaged dvd player (who cares, it still works)
5 welling speakers (2 tower, 1 center, 2 bookshelf)
welling 150w active sub

Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

Pioneer System including speakers that we have wall mounted and all hidden wiring up through the roof and down the walls.

I am not sure what the specs of it all are but when watching BEHIND ENEMY LINES at the start where the plane gets shot down it shakes the whole room, lucky the neighbours are deaf, No they are, really.

If I were to do it again, I would do it just the same.

Cheers

Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

Sony Amp
Custom DIY sub with 350amp jaycar module and 12" polycone woofer
2 Jamo floor speakers
4 crappy Sony Bookself speakers for the rear
and next to go Sony centre speaker

Happy with the sub and fronts but little by little the rest of the shooting match will be upgraded to suit

Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

I picked up a JVC combo deal thing. Multi region DVD player, which is also an mp3 player and amp/reciever, sub and 5 surround speakers for about $1500. Awesome sound, especially in my room (ended up moving back home not long after i bought it). All together a very handy little system.

Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

Kenwood Pro Logic Receiver 5x80 watts
Audioline RMS 100 watt front speakers
DTX 60watt surround and centre speakers

It's a cheap setup - at the time it was a bit of an impulse buy to upgrade to surround and I wasn't going to spend $700 on a Kenwood Dolby Digital receiver. I wanted a Kenwood to maintain full remote control ability throughout the system. The Pro Logic was about $400 then. Spent another $300 to add the surround speakers. One day I'll get a decent set of speakers

Re: 5.1 surround speakers - what have you got?

I've got some Logitech Z-680s, They are meant to be computer speakers but they are way better as home entertainment.
Cost me $500 and the system is 500watts RMS.
This system does not distort or bottom out, my ears start hurting before i get to the highest volume.
