      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.

      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.

      Here are pics of my theater. I haven't done much to it since we moved in other than set it up and tweak the sound. I still need to mount my projector on the ceiling, but I have been putting this off in the hopes of getting a newer higher resolution projector, and hopefully something that is a little quieter. Everything needs a darker coat of paint, and I need to get my X-10 dimmer switches purchased and installed. The addition of the Hunter Douglas blinds gave me the need light control for the projector.

      Paradigm Monitor 7 fronts
      Paradigm Monitor CC-350 center
      SVS 16-46 PCi
      Yamaha RX-V995

      DaLite pull-down screen (cheapie)

      Paradigm Monitor 7 and SVS 16-46 PCi

      Paradigm Titans (Version 1!)

      haha we have the same M&Ms thing and the same movie stars picture. the two movie posters we have are Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator.
      how much and how big are those seats? where did you get them? our problem is our media room is too small for the size of screen we have. there are only two goods seats in the room (the back two). we're trying to find a way to re-construct the room but we're having problems with seating and the such.
      nice setup, either way. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      edit: pics.

      i disallow any mockery of the quality of the pictures.
      edit again: egad. i never noticed how horrible window's resizing thing is. eek.
