My Old Living Room

I moved about 2 months ago and had to downsize a bit but this was my set up at my old apartment.

50" Panasonic Plasma on a custom made tv stand

Onkyo TX-NR809

Amp was a Parasound HCA-806 which is can do 80 x 6 but I had two channels bridged so it was running 180 x 2 into my fronts. Center was powered by the receiver.

Boston Acoustic VR series speakers. I had VR-30 L/R and the VR-12 center channel at the time. It turned out that a set of VR-40 floorstanders and a VR-10 center popped up on CL near my parents so I had my dad pick them up. We swapped main speakers so I now have VR-40s with the VR-12 center (Top of the line for this series) and my dad has VR-30s with the VR-10 center (all second teir of the VR series). Worked our great for both of us.

Sub is a Velodyne VRP-1200. Nothing special but it sounded great for movies.

Congrats on the very nice system.  It's very clean as Pepe observed.  I'm sure you can get a lot of pleasure from your system.

I really like Parasound amplifiers, Panasonic makes a terrific plasma!

Thanks guys.

Is the plasma a Kuro?

No, I believe Kuro was made by Pioneer and they were already out of the plasma business when I bought my TV. This was a relatively low model panasonic that I got from Costco. At the time the panny plasmas were probably the best thing on the market and definitely the best bang-for-buck. This was my first big purchase out of college and I still love it. Hopefully it can hold me over until I can afford an OLED TV and a 4K projector... gotta dream big  O0
