Newest is my 37" Sharp for my basement. I have my old stereo hooked up to it along with my 360.



My 53" Panny is still the same, its in my main living room and such.... here's a pic that i used before.

I could live in a basement like that.

Havent seen a HT rig for a few pages. :bleh:

Wow i`m at a loss for words, Deaderinred if that really is your system, no man should have to live like that. If it`s not please post a pic of what you have or i will forever associate that setup :confused: with you.

traitoR Feb 16, 2008 02:16 AM

Guess i`ll post mine. 42" Panasonic Plasma, Starchoice HD, Sony STRDG-800 7.1 miscellaneous speaker collection, RCA upconverting DVD.

I will post pics as soon as my carpet is installed. I get all new carpet in the house tomorrow. Gave me a chance to rewire the whole living room. I didn't have the surround backs hooked up because I had carpet and pretty much impossible to run that far. It will look damn nice when done. I'll post pics tomorrow after it's all hooked up. Here are my specs:

Sony 46" Bravia LCD
Toshiba HD-A3 HDDVD player
ONKYO 605 7.1 channel receiver with Dolby True HD and DTS Master encoding, HDMI switching (2 in, 1 out)
Polk Audio PSW 650 Dual 10" sub
Polk Audio RM 6751's (6 of them)
Polk Audio Center
Direct TV Ultimate package with all the HD channels
All speaker wire is Phillips 16g (took over 200ft to wire the room!!)
3 HDMI cables by Monoprice.com

NissanNazi Feb 18, 2008 04:25 PM

Finally in my brand new house I'll post a before and after pic to show you what I've done in the last two weeks. :)

Before



And after







Next I am moving the surrounds to the ceiling since the house came pre wired for 7.1 surround.

ScottDoom Feb 18, 2008 10:27 PM

Awesome. :up:

Sony Bravia XBR3 on a cheap IKEA stand:

This is a soon-to-be entertainment center, with my XBR3 photoshopped in.

i'm curious why you placed your subwoofer in such an orientation (i.e., equidistant to adjacent walls). i assume you're not experiencing standing waves from that channel when oriented as such?

That's it's sweet spot. I have tried all positions and with the back ports firing at the corner and the two subs firing at each direction, I don't have to turn it up as loud. This sub is not "tight" for music, it's rather boomy. Great sub for movies and TV. It will shake the house.

Haha :lol: Yeah I do realize my center and surround speakers are WAY too small for the room but it's a work in progress still :) Soon I'll have some really nice speakers to go with everything else.

Yeah man. Thats one of the beauties of home cinema seperates, buy things as you go along, piece by piece to your tastes.

We were using floor standers at our old house which was fine because the speakers were to our left and right, but in our new place they're placed behind us on the left and right and blocked by the sofa, so now we have to buy some stands and book shelf speakers :lol:

Old floor standers (rears) going in dining room, which is gonna be sweet.

New addition to my home theater setup....... Fish!!! :lol:

Wow, that is a very appealing gameroom. Visually pleasing, and looks relaxing.

Nice work, I like it. :)
