    No Blu-Ray player yet, but I'll for sure be an owner of one by the end of the summer.

I have all of my components connected, with my FIOS DVR connected via HDMI through the receiver, and while watching Terminator: SCC last night I heard a major audio improvement over my old setup.

    I'll be starting another thread soon that'll include a room diagram which is a revision of the previously posted one, and I'll also include some of the finer details of the room construction like the completed wall plates w/connections and some pics of the speaker cable assembly with those pretty, black chrome banana plugs.

    Time for some REAL tweaking! :thumbsup:

    SCC? Have you been joining in over at AVS?

    Glad you're enjoying your new unit. What's next?

    Didn't know there was one. It isn't 20,000 posts long I hope. :rolleyes:

    Thanks. I'd have to say the next component will be a Blu-ray player in the fall, and after that I may end up replacing the surround speakers with bookshelf units. The P6's will always be an issue because there's really no safe way to raise them above the furniture line-of-site no matter where I place them (the base speaker sits well below ear level). In the meantime, lots of receiver education.

    Last night's episode was the season finale right? Luckily I had my DVR setup on time so it got recorded. I wasn't paying very close attention to what was going on, but I'm SURE Cameron will come out of the Jeep explosion unscathed. If she doesn't there'll no longer be any need to watch the show. :ihih:

    There have been a couple of views on that. Some think that she slipped out before it blew. Others think she'll come out fine, but with no skin left. Once she grows it back, she may, or may not, be played by Summer next season.

    TV budget wouldn't allow for all the special effects that would have been needed to do that right. But I love the way they did it with Ol' Johnny singing as they flew into the pool. I've been loving the show. We'll have to start a new thread on it next season.
