Not dissing the quality, just one of the dolls. The Superman doll on the top shelf looks like his left leg is on tippy toe with the knee bent a la Betty Boop!

Yes, you can in theory. In practice, it still depends on your room. You should experiment with it and see if it sounds good in your listening position.

Picked up the seating from SoundWorld in Appleton, WI [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I'm not sure on the sizing
It doesn't look impressive in pictures...but in a very small 2 bedroom apartment I have:
Hitachi 50V500 50" LCD RPTV
5x NHT SuperOnes
Velodyne CHT-8 sub
Motorola 6100 series HD cable box
Home Theater Mac
The Home Theater Mac is the best part. Hooked to the TV via DVI it does DVD upscaling as well as playing video I download from the Internet. Since I'm getting LOTR: ROTK EE for Xmas my New Years Eve party will be watching it with a bunch of friends. Hope everyone else is gone - last time I cranked it I got a noise complaint.
Yes. Definitive Audio in Bellevue WA. They were out of room in their wharehouse and had to have it dropped off at my place. I was having them hold it until we move into our new house and could install everything. Now I get to be tempted by it at our rental until we move however.
If you like Paradigm, also look into Energy. The place I bought my stuff liked from sold me Energy speakers, but suggested a Paradigm sub. I really like what I bought.
The Energy web site lists dealers in CT.
And, nice to see another Rotel on here.
Edit: Also, if you're in CT and want to see/hear our stuff, IM me.

Our setup, with our present projector. The foam is from Ice cream cone boxes. The cabinet's boards held up with all-thread.
Our screen. Dad taped off a section of wall, then put sheetrock mud to bring it out. Made curtains from cloth from Wally-world.
Our future profector, once we figured out how to mount it.
My dad builds houses, and makes deals with owners of stores to get it on the low-low. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
too lazy to look at model #'s on the back of everything...just off the top of my head:
Toshiba 46H84 HDTV
Cerwin-Vega LS-12 fronts
Aura 10" powered sub
Aura dual 5.25" center channel
Yamaha HTR-5730 receiver
panasonic DVD player (running component to tv)
Here's our home theater system set up in the family room
-Sony 50" HDTV Plasma
-Paradigm Reference Fronts, Centers, and Rears
-Paradigm PW-2200 Subwoofer
-Old Sony Receiver, DVD, VCR, and 300 CD Changer (Receiver will be replaced soon)
-Comcast Tuner/HDTV Tuner/DVR
-Delphi MyFi XM Radio Tuner
The AV equipment is set up in the room behind the TV. It is run off of an IR repeater system that is mounted on top of our TV and connected to a blaster in the other room. Its pimp
Excuse all the wires and stuff, we're still trying to clean up the installation. I myself actually did all of the mounting and installing, and if anyone in the Chicago area would like a HT system installed for cheap, let me know, I have references!!
