Canada Tezster's "Baby Klipsch" compromised Atmos Living Room HT

Welcome to my living room HT setup

My intent has been to maintain a small footprint with all my equipment (as much as reasonably possible). I like to call it a minimalist design aesthetic i.e. keeping everything clean and clutter-free.

Finally, after incremental upgrades in the past 3-4 months, I'm now officially running a 5.2.4 Atmos configuration! The final piece of the puzzle was getting an Atmos-capable receiver - I already had the height speakers installed and wired.

Current equipment list:
  • Speakers - Klipsch RP-250 (LCR), Polk OWM-3 (front/rear heights), Klipsch S-20 Surrounds
  • Subwoofer - Dual SVS SB2000's
  • Tactile Transducer - Wireless Buttkicker Advance kit
  • TV - LG 75UH8500
  • Receiver - Denon AVR-X4200W + OSD two-channel amp
  • Media/Playback Devices - Oppo 203 (region-free), PS3, Rogers SA8300 HD-PVR
  • BDI Mirage 8224 Media Cabinet

Misc. - DIY media shelves, Harmony 880 remote, Sewell Deadbolt banana plugs, LED Bias Lighting kit, Trendnet 5-port Gb switch, PC media server w/ 8TB storage.



































My blu-rays have been moved to a new shelf in my bedroom, to accommodate its ever-increasing size

Small update: no equipment change, but I replaced my existing media storage with a shelf I built over the weekend to accommodate my expanding collection (I had ran out of shelf space as the old one was completely full).

Old shelf on the left, new one on the right:



I found a youtube clip/blog post (here), and used the same basic design. What I like about it is the minimalist design. Because the blu-rays are flush against the wall, it occupies a very small footprint - the depth of the shelf is less than that of a blu-ray case. Living in a small space such as mine, I really appreciate the efficient (and inexpensive) storage solution this provides.

I just installed the wireless Buttkicker HT kit to my system - it's only been a couple of days, but so far, I frickin' LOVE IT!

My sofa has a center leg where I attached the buttkicker platform (so it's a pretty ideal setup). The 2nd pic is the wireless/IR transmitter.

Never had the Buttkicker experience. Do you love it or what? I think it'd be crazy, my sub has me movin more than I need now ...I'd like to try it out though sometime. Need to tell one of my buddies to install them on their furniture.

In my situation, I can't go crazy with the subs, due to space considerations and having neighbours to think about. My compact SB-2000 does a pretty good job, but the buttkicker simply adds a new dimension to the LFE signal. Maybe I would feel different if I had 3 ported SVS subs in my HT but it's a whole lotta win in my case. It's pretty crazy to think that I can now experience bass notes in the single digits.

If you think about how much most of our audio gear costs -especially for HT enthusiasts- the Buttkicker offers great value for the money, IMO.

I've overhauled the first post, as my setup has changed over the past few months. Most recently (just today, in fact!), I've updated the front LCR to the new Klipsch Reference Premiere speakers



Also blinged-up my media shelf a tad.

Sweet looking setup! Let us know what you think of the Klipsch's after you had a chance to run them in a bit.

My WF-35's needed about 75 hours to fully relax.
