    Cool

    About to rewire it, was going with a BELLO STAND , but a pressure plate on the cars tranny
    outranks that.
    HERES a montage, the gold player sideways on the right is my eight year old PANNY
    DVD-AUDIO player with 192 khz dacs, also has something called remaster, which doubles the sampling rate for CD, THE SOUND IS REALLY AMAZING.

    Cool

    Did'nt show my speakers close, most know about them. Will say that the 602s2 is one of the best speakers ever when price is considered.
    525$ a pair, 350 for the center, kevlar cones, Nautilus tweeters.
    Eight years old, going strong
    I use a pair of 305 floorstanders that used to be my mains for surround duty, 400 bucks a pair on closeout. A waste to use these for surrounds, hope the use them for an audio only system soon.HAS plastic fins lining the inside of the cabinet, keeps down standing waves. All I NEED IS A PREAMP, but in the Obamanation times are tight.

    HERES my five hundred buck Lovan rack I bought( as usual) at closeout for half price.
    Hope to make it part of an audio only system someday, but right now it mainly is a junk collector. The Sony changer holds most of my "main" CD's. I am about to move the 700 dollar
    panny to the main rack next door. Notice my B&W 602s2, still lookin good after 8-9 years.

    Heres my PANNY DVD-AUDIO player, probably the best sounding component I have.
    Even though all of my music is on the computer, its still worth the trouble to load CD's
    into this thing, although the video is good for the times, its not up todays, sadly.

    Cool

    So the next time some smart *** wants to see "my stuff", I will have a link for you.
    NOT THE BEST by a long shot, but considering the demands of life, women, children,
    and the taxman, its about as good as a workingman could do. COULD HAVE BOUGHT
    nicer stuff, but I tend to get something as soon as I can, not too good at saving up for
    things.

    I really like the Comcast Cable Box.

    Ya shoulda just added this to the Updated Listening Space thread but good pics anyway. Although they sounded great, I never liked the B&Ws with the cyclops eye tweeters sticking out the top. These are much cleaner.

    Looks great, thanks for sharing pix!! I love the third screenshot of the Enterprise, looks really nice. The Emotiva stuff is always on my ind when thinking of H/T. I would love to get their 5 channel amp combined with a great player, I bet that would sound excellent.

    I notice you have corner placement for the speakers. Is that maunfacturer suggested, or a space necessity?

    My only concern is for your TT so close to the speakers with no isolation assistance. Surely this is problematic, even if not fully audible. I would suggest a wall shelf or perhaps another location in the room, away from the speakers.

    Great stuff!! I wouldn't sweat anyone provoking you about "proving" anything. There are several members here who don't post pics, and that's fine. I do love seeing pictures though (JoeESP9).

    Enjoy your system pix and consider a tubed pre amp to mix it up a bit.

    Hey.,..

    I don't hate on anyone's gear. You buy what you like and what you can afford. My first few systems sucked so I pass no judgement on anyone's gear. I like some of your speaks and anyone that love Frank Frazetta get's a nod in my book.

    I'll second that...

    Buy what you like... Who cares whether other forum members have (or claim to have) more expensive gear than you? We've all got different obligations and priorities...

    I used to think that, but at 250 bucks, whats the harm to try?
    And they made a beleiver outta me, with a toroidal transformer as big as a cats head.
    AND MY RECEIVER doesnt strain as much at high vollume levels , since it only has three channels to drive. SO two channel sound is exelent, and HT is better also.

    They are actually father away from the walls than the pic implies. THE TT isn't a factor,
    since neither the center or the sub are in play when its in use. ITS not hooked up right now,
    thinking about putting it on the LOVAN rack, with its superb isolation.
    I AM FINALLY posting pics because of the systems posted here had a lot of good ideas.
    A lot don't think much about the pole option for flat screen, but if you don't want to cut the wall, its a cheap option, so I thought I WOULD "POST" AN EXAMPLE.
    And dont get me started on "tube" amps, don't need the harmonic distortion, and the design has been obsolete since Bell labs came out with the first transistor(or stole it from ET!)

    Thanks, thats really whats important. A LOT think you can spend your way to audio nirvana,
    and I GUESS you can. But it takes planning to get a decent sounding system cheap.
    I live on the edge of the law of diminishing returns, I get the 96% you can get, without spending thousands on the last three percent.
    THE MOST IMPORTANT thing is paying for quality, that is really cheaper in the long run.
    INTEGRA (Onkyo), PANASONC, B&W, they all make inexpensive stuff that lasts a long time.

    Thanks. More efficient(and cheaper) than pure class A.
    Once again I SPENT MY FAIR SHARE of time panning this brand, couldnt have been more wrong. GREAT WARRANTY , price, specials, true audiophile quality kit for cheap.
    IS IT AS GOOD as a megabuck amp? If its not its not off by much. I see now why there are so many EMOTIVA FANBOYS OUT THERE.

    Didn't know about that, thanks. The cable box is a love hate deal, COMCAST IS GOING THROUGH something called "the digital migration". Even tho the box holds an amazing amount of media(all three Rings movies, most DARK blue, a ton of concerts) glitches
    and price have me looking at UVERSE, 87 bucks a month for six months, and you get the pay channels, locals 230 HD channels in all, amazing compared to COMCAST, although
    when Comcast is working, its working great
