thanks...i cleaned it up as much as i could. the speaker wires are just way to big to clean up. i wish i also had hdmi so it would be cleaner. i'm using component and spdif (coax) for audio for now.

Looks good! and it must sound good too! Have you played any of the heavy bass tracks that are listed on the SVS website? Man I'm itching to get an SVS but it may drive my neighbor crazy (i'm in a townhouse)

Nice cozy place you got there. Where is it and how much did you buy it for? If you don't mind me asking...

no i haven't. i didn't even know they have some heavy bass tracks there. i'll have to check it out. the size of the sub is quite big tho so if you don't have much space, there's a cylindrical version too which should be smaller.i had no idea how big it was until i got it. luckily for me, i had some space..

djsway...the condo is in ladera ranch (south OC). it's a small place roughly 1400 sq. ft (corner lot, so I only share one wall). I got it for around 521K. ouch!!!

There is a section with the 'waterfall' charts, from music or movie passages with lots of bass. It shows you the intensity and frequency spectrum of the bass. You'd have to rent the movies to test out those scenes!

I was thinking of going with the cylindrical 25-30 or something w/ a similar name. I do have room for the big monster boxes but I would have to put it behind my couch and I think it would be too loud cuz it's so close.

Looking good, I bet it sounds great... Everyone is always surpised with the size of their svs.. I have a cylender svs, its incredble and also very large. Are those big ass white cables the speaker wire?

BTW, did you know that rotel just came out with the rsx-1057 that has hdmi?

yeps..those are the speaker wires. they really have great insulations. they are bi-wire wires. they are probably overkill, but i love em.

i did hear about the 1057. i should've waited, but then again i had no idea they were coming out so soon. they should be out 2-3 mos as they are just waiting for all the 1056 to be out of stock. i gotta talk to my dealer and see if i can do a trade in or something.

Nice setup! I like your speaker choices, I also have the 603 s3s with a lcr600. I'm trying to decide between dm601s and 602.5s for the rears. Any thoughts?

i haven't heard the 602.5's yet, but i love the 602 (for music). i got the 603's for the better bass (even though my svs is more than enough). if you can get or have room for floorstanding like the 602.5's, then that's probably your best bet. i would listen to them first and decide as your own ears is the only thing that matters.

I would get the 602.5's just for the cool factor. Towers all around is impressive. Plus the price for 601's and stands probably comes out to the same as the floor standers. For multi channel music the towers will probably be a little better since bass response is better than the 601's and is closer to the 603's. Plus the 602.5's are going to look the same as the 603's if you keep the grills on them. or you could get another pair of 603's.

Mach330, I dont know if you mentioned it before but where did you end up buying all the stuff at?

I got them at Sound Factor in Glendale, Ca. It's one of those hifi audio place. You can usually get a 10-15% discount if you get the whole package. I also had them throw in the 80ft of cables that I needed which cost around $1.50/ft.

SVS subs offer a great value, but there are better subs out there.
