New Ultimate Receiver thrown into the mix

Post by Toy Maker » Fri Mar 19, 2010 12:00 am

With the insane "stereo" setup already in place, it's not exactly practical to turn on 75 tubes every time you want some background music, or to watch a movie.

So last night, we decided to grab one of the Ultimate Reveivers, and threw a few of the mini Mirage satelites aroubd the room, and threw in a little powered sub I slapped together a while ago at the shop.

I'll tell you what... It shounds pretty damn good, for a quick 45 minute rigged up surround system.
It's nice to be able to listen to a little background music, and watch TV without having to turn the AC on :lol:

This weekend, we might get up in the attic and run some new wires to get the surrounds placed where we really want them...
