HG Rosewood's (I think I'm done)

I am putting the link up for my previous gallery so I won't have to post all my old pics back here. My system has changed quite a bit since I joined up here a few years ago. In this gallery I will give all the details of my current setup and hopefully my last setup. So here we go!

http://www.axiomaudio.com/boards/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showgallery&Number=212511#comments

All my speakers have the HG Rosewood finish. the setup has:
Fronts M80's
Centre VP180
Side Surrounds A's M80's
Side Surrounds B's QS8's
Rear Surround VP150
Subwoofers front l and r EP800's
Subwoofer rear EP500

Other equipment
Powering the front soundstage Axiom A1400-8
Powering all the surrounds in bridged mode Denon POA-A1HDCI
Pre-Pro Denon AVP-A1HDCI
Universal player OPPO BDP-83
DVD player OPPO DV-983H
Satellite Receiver Bell 9242
Apple TV
Monitors 60" Pioneer Kuro PRO-141FD For watching visuals
23" Samsung SyncMaster 2333HD For listening to music

That's it.
I will "suffer" with what I currently have until death us do part. laugh
Maybe one day I will get a proper HT room but not in my current house. Luckily I have no more room for speakers.

Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.

For an update since it has been a while. Both my DENON are Not working and I'll try to get the DENON amp fixed If I can find a place. The Axiom amp has a few channels that do not work and can't be fixed. Both OPPO's are toast. No sat receiver anymore. I currently have 3 Crown amps powering my front soundstage. Nothing powering the sides and rears. Have a cheap pre-pro currently while I wait for the monoprice pre-pro to be available. Waiting for the return on my 2 Axiom amps to power my sides and rears. It will be nice to have my system up and running the way it was in the good old days.

Stereo City Service on Edmonton's southside is an authorized Denon repair depot. I've had great success with MSJ in Queen Mary Park in the distant past, but might not have access to the schematics. I would not let Audio Ark touch my disposable equipment with a 10 foot pole.

The Denon POA-A1HDCI is worth fixing at any price IMO, but the AVP-A1HDCI should probably be replaced with something that supports current tech (4K/8K/eArc/Dirac/Audyssey/etc). You squeezed 13 A/V dog years out of it, so it owes ya nothing, and it won't have the resale value that 1970's receivers have today (mostly due to their lovely aesthetics).

If you ever want to offload one or more of your subs, let me know. I've been watching Kijiji and Canuck Audiomart for Axiom and API subwoofers for a few years to replace my vintage Mirage, but I keep kicking the can down the road when I save it with contact cleaner.

Stereo City is where I took my amp. Then one day I got a call saying they were closing down. I would have to ship the POA quite a distance to try and get it repaired.
All my subs will stay with me for a while longer.
I've been looking at getting the Marantz AV10 or the Monoprice Monolith HTP-1
