My home theatre (94 photos)(5.0) (91 ratings)
A shot of the backside of Shunyata's oversized wall outlet. When the amp and sub run hard this unit will not overheat and will keep it's composure.

Latest sonic upgrade from Eden Sound. The huge Papa Bear Paw footer. At 6.5 lbs these are the most massive footers in the industry. Over 3 inches in height and 3 inches in width.

During the Shunyata outlet installation, I pulled out the sub and took a side shot of it with the Cardas Clear Beyond power cord. Gives one a sense of the size of this thing.

One of 3 Eden Sound Fatboy dampening discs. Each weighs 2 lb and is 1.3 inches in height and 3 inches in diameter. The Triceratops radiused mini footers are an option.

This is the Quantum Resolution Technologies QV2 AC Line Harmonizer. Nordost is the parent company of QRT and they are addressing new ways of clean power. This unit costs $375.00 and submits carefully calculated 60hz pulse waves back into the AC line to correct 60hz electrical waveforms. This results in a clearly improved 3 dimensional soundstage and a noticeably improved picture. My Outlaw sounds 3 dimensional, my 13 Ultra sounds smoother and cleaner, my Plasma now has blacker blacks...contrast ratio solidly improved with deeper, richer color and a more lifelike picture. This unit should be plugged in the wall next to the power distribution center. A second unit is plugged in any free outlet on your power distribution center for a "quantum" improvement. This thing, my home theatre friends, really does work. It is NOT a gimmick.

A close up shot of the Outlaw 7500's two massive 1.6kva toroidal transformers. Each of those capacitors is 15,000mf in size and there are 10 in all. This amplifier pushes out tremendous power at an ultra-clean lightening-fast speed.

Power supply conditioner for Plasma, Blu ray, DVR, AVR pre/pro comes by way of Blue Circle Audio six outlet PLC Thingee. This conditioner has six high end Blue Circle proprietary outlets and the unit is encased in silicone. There is no current limiting and unit is connected via a Nordost Vishnu power cord. Attached is Quantum Resonant Technology's QV2 line harmonizer. The power is totally purified affecting interconnection with multichannel power amp and subwoofer. The Thingee is resting on Cardas Myrtleblocks to remove any dialectric propagation.

An overhead shot of Blue Circle Audio's PLC Thingee with the QRT's QV2 power harmonizer. Purification of power for Plasma, AVR, Blu ray, and DVR and additional signal purification for multichannel power amp and subwoofer come from this dense beast housed in a 4.5 inch PVC and totally encased in silicone. Size is deceiving. The Thingee is large and heavy and does the job like nothing I have ever owned.

I ordered this maple butcher block, finished it with many applications of wood conditioner, went to a local trophy shop and made the name badge "ultraPLAT". Don't look for this product on the internet. The massive footers rest on this slab for electronic drainage and isolation from the elements and glass. The huge dampeners press the Blu-ray player down solidly on the footers.

Front quarter shot of the PB-13Ultra with the Cardas power cord. The Cardas cord is huge but does not look it in this shot when comparing it to the 13Ultra. At 160 lbs the PB 13 Ultra is a backbreaker to move. You will need two able bodied people to lift this thing on the Auralex pad. Robaxacet or Tylenol 3 should have been sent with my order. The sound is solid even at very low volumes late at night.

The 13.5 SVS proprietary driver weighs 60 lbs according to the SVS technician I spoke to. This is more than most subwoofers out there. The surround is made of Santoprene...a mix of Polypropalene and Rubber. It is very solid to the touch. Three tuning ports can be plugged. I have the middle port plugged and set on the amplifier's DSP settings for the one port plugged configuration. This is the best setting for ultra deep extension and absolute power.
