New? Not me.
New = big depreciation. I let someone else take that loss.

Save for the piano, all of the equipment was used, purchased on Ebay and Craigs List.

That receiver listed at $200 new in 2002. I got it for $32 in 2009, in pristine condition.
The tower speakers were $400+ new in 1996. I paid $100 (for the pair) in 2009.
The small speakers cost me $40. (I don't know the new price from 2002.)

Not shown:
A Shure mixer that is still available for $250. I paid $54.

Of course, pricey "computer speakers" can also be purchased for a lot less used. Not everyone likes buying used stuff, though.

Yamaha RX-V373 5.1-Channel AV Receiver 189.99 on Amazon right now. I paid 249.99 in April and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My review:

My Klipsch 5.1 THX pro-media system for my computer failed on me last year after about 9 years of use so I thought I would purchase an AV receiver to run the speakers and get a plate amp for the subs. Since I had just upgraded my computer and now had onboard optical audio port, I thought I would go the AV receiver for a total home theater experience, rather than just get a dedicated PC sound system.

Well, plans change and I was rooting through my parents basement last weekend and dug up some old ADS L810. Plugged those in along with the Klipsch center and surround speakers and it sounds incredible. So I went back to the folks basement, did some more digging, and found a pair of ADS L710! Now I have the Klipsch still on center, but the 810s are my fronts and the 710s are my surrounds and it crazy loud and sounds excellent. I also hook my digital piano up through the receiver and its great because I can just do "straight" and not have to worry about any sound modification.

Did a lot of research on receivers in this price range (200-300) and this can't be beat. Best out there for the money period. Would recommend to anyone looking to get into the AV game, wants a feature rich device, but doesn't want to pay for additional inputs and outputs.

Hardware:
Yamaha RX-V373
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Motherboard - Windows 7 Ultimate
Klipsch ProMedia satellite center
ADS L810s Fronts
ADS L710s Surround
Bash 300 Plate Amp wired to JL 12W6V1





Good luck on finding some ADS quality bookshelves smile

oh yeah, I got this hooked up to my Kawai MP-10. The whole set up is a jaw dropper.

Hi Friends,

I tend to agree with MacMacMac. Last year I purchased a Kawai CA-63, very happy with action and feel, but the speakers had a twang to them and no matter how much I tweaked with the Virtual Technician and settings, I couldn't get rid of it. When I listened through the headphones the twang went away. When I used my computers speakers it improved, but they were very directional.

After comparing the cost of buying a new computer, enhanced soundcard and an improved set of computer speakers it would've been over $1000.

I went out and purchased a set of Definitive Technology Studio Monitor 45's. I now own a life like piano. No twang, beautiful clarity, and finally I hear a true grand piano sound. When I record something I download to the USB and replay through the piano, it sounds lifelike. In someways I feel like I have a sound equal or better than the CA-93 for a lot less price.

For piano, I see no reason to buy a sub-woofer, the piano sounds great w/o it.

For some, you might want to look into it. I am so glad I did.
