tomsch's Cheap stuff System
Last Update: October 05, 2001 at 08:17:15 IP Address:
Amplifier: Outlaw Audio 1050 Receiver
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none
Speakers: Triangle Titus-XS Mains
DIY RS40-1354A Voigt Pipes in progress.

Hsu TN1225 (w/150W Hsu amp) sub

NHT SuperZero surrounds

CD Player/DAC: Cheap Sony DVP-S360 DVD (shopping for an upgrade)
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Speaker Mains: Kimber 8TC

Digital interconnect: Monster

Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): 26" Sanus Ultimate stands for the Triangles
Room Size (LxWxH): 25- x 18- x 9-14'
Room Comments/Treatments: Room opens into a large kitchen and requires quite a bit of bass reinforcement. Sloping ceiling from 9' to 14' at the peak. Setup is in the middle of the long wall with the mains 3' from any side object and 3.5' from the rear wall. The Hsu sub is in the corner for good bass blending as well as WAF.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, R&B, and pretty much everything else.
System Goals/Comments: Good balance for HT and music.
System Strengths: Incredible detail, imaging, and depth from the Triangle Titus mains. Bass blend with the HSU is very good. The detail works great for HT.
System Weaknesses: Haven't found a center channel speaker that matches the Triangles for HT.

Imaging could be even better without the TV in between the mains.

Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Typical GE 35" (waiting for it to die as an excuse for an upgrade)
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I'm an engineer during the day and play saxophone in a R&B/funk/soul band at night.
