Dedicated TV sound systems.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have three systems; Main system in the lounge with 65” LED TV where 99% of the time only audio is played, second system in the family room for back ground music and then at the end of the family room a dedicated TV system where the TV is on every night.

 

This main TV end has a tube preamp, chip power amp (60W), 175W 12” subwoofer and Mark Audio 12P based thin towers. If there is a good movie on the TV, via a set top box, the sound system is turned on. 90% of the time only the TV (50” LED) sound system is used. I could play CDs etc. here but I rarely do. 

 

Who else has a purely dedicated TV centric system mainly use for watching better shows or movies? List your gear please and image.

70” Sony LED (probably their lowest model)

NAD T758v3

NAD C 275BEE powering the fronts

Dali Ikon 7 front and rear, Ikon Vokal

 

90% Netflix and the ABC. All up the speakers cost maybe $1500 second hand. Will eventually add a sub, but it’s not a priority. 

 

Most of the time I set it to downmix to stereo.

Devialet phantom silver or SGR CX4F Mk2 depending on my mood.

Auralec Vega in the equation also.

I’d like to hear that. This must be a one of a kind dedicated TV setup if ever there was one. Good ☝️ And you’re in Vic.

I prefer the sound just from the tv - more point source, more integrated, like as if they are from time-aligned speakers.

These things get used often for tv also but not dedicated as such.

My main system in the main living room (upstairs) is geared purely towards music playback with tubes in every part of the sound chain, DAC, preamp and power amp. It does get used for TV and movies about 50% of the time though.

My second system downstairs has a Neotech speaker swichbox so I can share the Oatlon W2-1000F (Klipsch KG5.5 inspired) speakers with a tube integrated for music.

 

TV and movies go through a Tascam PA-R100 AVR feeding the Oatlon W2-1000F fronts, a Dali Ikon Vocal centre, Dayton PS180-8 wall speakers and Wharfedale SW150 sub.  Sounds great  :)

There's also a Denon DN-500BD Mk2 BlueRay player.
