    i finally put my system together

    After several weeks (many times 4-5 hours a day) of internet searches, browsing forums, reading internet reviews, and posting questions, I've finally made the purchases necessary to complete the 5.1 theater that fits my budget. It consists of:

    Mains: Energy C3
    Center: Energy CC1
    Surrounds: Energy C1---All speakers: $600
    Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1015TX: $515 with shp and ext. warranty
    Subwoofer: Velodyne DLS-4000R: $435 shipped from authorized online retailer
    Omnimount: 31" stands for mains and 24" stand for the surrounds: $50.00 shipped

    I may purchase a Harmony remote to finish it off. I have nice cables left over from an old system. Also, my tv (which I already have), is a 2nd gen 43" Samsung DLP.

    When I first read up on Energy, many said they were bright, but I started running across opposite views. I haven't heard them yet, but got them because of their Canadian heritage. I initially was going to purchase PSB Image 25's, but couldn't pass up this deal. Even if I find them a tad bright, I doubt they will be more than my old Klipsch RF-3s. Loved 'em, but could only listen to them for 20 minutes at a time.

    The Pioneer will last a long time. Also, I'm pumped about the sub having a remote. All of this will be for a 15x12 apartment living room, so I shouldn't have upgrade-itis for a while.

    Congrats on your setup!

    You put together the exact system I have in my 11x13 bedroom. Well speaker wise anyways.

    Finally Finished!! Thoughts on my setup

    The C-3's sound slightly foward to me. Not bright or harsh at all to me. But we all hear things diff don't we. The C-3's are excellent speakers. I auditioned Wharfedale 9.2's and Paradigm MM before going with the C-3's. I thought the MM sounded really good as well.

    This system will rock. I found the C-C1 much more enjoyable in my smaller bedroom compared to my main. And the C-1's are great as well. This will rock your mid sized room easy. Once your setup and calibrated let me know what you think.

    Anywhere but here...
    Looks like a good set-up. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    Good luck with fighting off the upgrade-itis. It's always stalking us around the next corner.
