Media Cabinet

I use 2 of these. They are well built and the have ones with drawers also instead of top loading so works out well for a spot the wife can place her knickknacks. I have one for BluRays and current gen games, and a 2nd one for last gen titles.

Anthem really is great. I wouldn't say they are underrated just not well known. The average consumer is not going to specialty audio dealers. If it's not in Best Buy they have no idea it exist.

If they were in Best Buy and people could compare them to the other offerings they would realize what the other companies offer is not up to par with Anthem, Arcam, etc.

Plus it's hard for people to justify. When you look at say a Denon X6300H which also has 11 built in amps, and it is 1300 dollars cheaper, its hard to justify the cost when it lacks all the little bells and whistles on paper, until you hear it that is. When people realize whats inside of it, listen to it, and realize it is made with the main goal of high end audio they get it

Following up on that upgrade on my end, I've got the new subwoofer (SVS PB16-Ultra) now. I've actually had it for two weeks now, which was way earlier than I expected to get one, but here it is.



This thing was, despite having seen a video and some pictures of the thing beforehand, way bigger than I expected (DVD case for scale). You couldn't fit a finger in between the door frame when this was being brought in. Weighs a ton, too.



The biggest surprise was how deep this thing is. There was never any way this was going to fit in the front without being a hassle, but having it positioned on the side wall worked out well enough. Whenever I do get a bigger space, this thing should feel right at home.



And here's the complete front end of the setup. I'm pretty pleased with it. I still haven't had the Genelecs calibrated - which is a shame, but nonetheless things sound great. One thing that has come evident to me with the new sub and speakers plugged in is how few games actually utilize the LFE channel to great effect. Battlefield 4 sound terrific, Some Call of Duty games (Infinite Warfare[; there's a bit in one of the optional missions that shakes the room which I wholly didn't expect - Operation Phoenix in the mission list], Advanced Warfare sound great - MW:R less so) do, too and SOMA has really won me over since I came back to visit my backlog. But then there's stuff on PS3 - A sliver of Dead Space gameplay (intro) that I went back to have a look at seemed to have zero activity on the .1 channel. Neither did SoTC - though I'm not sure that game ever had proper 5.1 support to begin with since that's a remastered PS2 game. Long story short; movies sound way better than most games (duh).

As for music, the subwoofer is pretty good at complimenting the low end with the the L and R speakers that already do a stellar job at the low end. Having profiles on the sub that can be switched with a button press or an app (bluetooth) is convenient and I've gotten more use out if than I expected to. I have one profile for HDMI sources that operates at the full frequency range of the sub (0-120hz LFE range) and one for music (Sonos and turntable) that bumps up the volume by a decibel and has a Low Pass Filter set at 36hz, so that it just hits the notes that the fronts don't.

Nice setup. I've seen the PB-16 in person, and it's fucking massive.

New setup for the next couple of months. Pretty happy with the mix. Should be my Switch in there by next week after my twin sends it to me.

Anyways...lovely setups guys n' gals! Might as well add mine into the equation. :)

It's been like this for just over 10 years, with a few additions here and there. I sort of fell out of love with Home Cinema a good few years ago, but this year I'm thinking of upgrading most of my kit (bar my Kef Refs/JL Audio Subs) and having a major redeco in the gaf.

Regardless, hope it's up to Neo's standards!

I was looking at that thinking "Maaannnn, that looks like THE FORCE's on AV Forums... Then I saw the link at the bottom! :D Man, I had an obsession with that place and trying to buy things I couldn't afford a while back... Good to see this stuff again, even if it's turning me green

Mmmm that sub is a beast. I went to one of the few dealers I buy gear form and they did a demo for me of it. Simply amazing. I think they had it plugged IIRC and it was so on point and quick. Definitely on the list for me but not for another few months. Probably the sealed though the ported is a little more than I need for my space
