Just resetup my system. What do you think RtiA9, CsiA6, RtiA7, RtiA3, HSU-VTF15, Denon

I had my system set up in my previous house and right after installing it the wife decided that it was time to move. I just reset it up in the new house in the family room. Let me know what you think. It is a little dark in the room (good for movies) but the setup was hard because of all of the windows. I do have somfy shades automated to close on movie mode. I still need to do a little rattle proofing with the HSU 15". I prefer to not have the TV over the fireplace but with all of the windows I had no choice. I will be also getting curtains for better sound quality. It does sound freaking amazing though.

    The rears are RTiA3, the sides are RTiA7, front are RTiA9's, and the Center is an CSI A6. I had a custom metal shop make a custom tray for the center channel that angles it right at my couch.

    Looking good. Having the bookshelf on the sub is perfectly fine. However, i would add some rubber bumper feet for alittle isolation.

    I have a Sherbourn PA 7-350 amplifier. It is 350X7 and weighs 100lbs. Not an expensive amp but I like it quite a bit. I think that it sounds pretty fantastic with the speakers and drives them well.

    the room is 18' X 25'.

    I'm certain it does. The Sound & Vision review verified the 350's* capabilities to drive your system well w/out drama.

    It would take a substantial amount of $$ to upgrade - say, 2 two channel amps and a 3 channel to improve upon it's* drive & SQ!

    Actually with the sub off and powered by a NAD C326BEE integrated...the RTiA3s can come up outta nowhere and surprise you with impact, bass and thanks the NADs subtle top end...the sound is less forward than one would think from the RTiA series. To be honest, the combo in my brain at the time thought it wouldn't work but it does...and does so well...it's my computer rig with a Pioneer DV-45A in the mix and a PSW108 for when no one else is home and I wanna disturb the peace playing games.
