spending money helps the economy, right?

okay, so i caved really fast. one week. i'm weak. sigh.

the new jbl speakers sound really nice, but they just don't have enough low end. so saturday afternoon i went back and bought the jbl l8400p subwoofer (one 12 inch speaker in a sealed enclosure). ...and an lc1 center channel speaker. yeah, that doesn't provide low end...so? the lc2 is a four-way while the lc1 is three-way, but the lc2 is designed for wall mounting. i didn't feel like messing with some kind of mount or stand, so the lc1 it was. they didn't have either speaker in stock in cherry, so i had to wait and pick them up this evening. i must say, they all look very nice.

here's a link to the entire studio-l series: jbl studio l

of course i also purchased an audioquest type 4 cable for the center channel, and a sub-1 cable for the subwoofer.

here's a link to the entire audioquest site: audioquest

while i was there i went ahead and also picked up an audioquest vdm-xr cable so i can do digital audio (rca coax, not optical) from my dvd player to my receiver. i watched some of stanley kubrick's clockwork orange sunday night after changing out my audio feed and i can already tell it's going to be a nice upgrade.

my receiver can do 6+1, but i'm waiting on purchasing surround speakers. then of course one of these days i'll have to replace the tv and move to composite video and such, but that's not a priority for me at this point at all.

i'll learn more about the capabilities of my new equipment over the next few days hopefully...

There are not too many things better than watching A Clockwork Orange with a loud, good quality system. It makes me wish I had it on DVD.
