      kenoka, looks good. Just clean those wires up.

      Glad to see there is a couple 4800/4805 owners on here.


      Heh, I had just set the screen up, but it probably doesn't look too much better now.

      You'd have to be working your hoes pretty hard to afford that. MSRP $225,000.

      Hehe, and that doesn't even include the lens! On the plus side though, the price of the bulbs have fallen down to about $5k each now, I believe.

      Here's a picture of what's in our living room. I know it's messy, but I literally just finished installing the TV a few minutes prior. THis is a temp setup until we move into our new house and the TV will be mounted above the fireplace and the theater goes in upstairs.

      The good guys. I don't see it listed on their website, but if you have a local one nearby, it was $299.

      Here's the setup in my upstairs loft. Always hard to capture what it actually looks like while sitting in the room though.

      Sony 46" RP CRT TV
      Yamaha HTR-5760 Receiver
      Panasonic S97S DVI DVD Player
      Athena AS-F2 Fronts
      Athena AS-B1 Rears
      Athena AS-C1 Center
      Athena PS-400 Sub

      He's a movie fan too so he gets a pic. He's still trying to figure out where all that damn noise comes from now.

      Thanks. It's finally time I got with the program.

      Compared to what I had before, a 27" Zenith with Fuzzy-vision, I sit and stare at it, sort of like if someone brought George Washington into this age and showed him TV.

      And, the receiver and speakers? I bought them last year to replace my 1980s JVC and my, I'm not kidding, two sets of KLH speakers that were about 30 years old.

      We had two people over for Thanksgiving that otherwise would have been alone. One was a colleague of my wife. My wife was telling people about the new TV last week. And he chimes in with ... he's European, but getting very Americanized, apparently ... "that's good. You have such a beautiful house. But, you had such a crappy TV."

      p.s. One of the things on the sub is the antennae for the wireless speakers, so I can go sit on the screen porch, have a cigar, and watch TV. It's is MUCH BETTER with the new TV. I can actually watch it from out there now.
