We are planning a move soon where I should once again have a dedicated HT room and I cannot wait ( batcave here I come ) .

My wife told me before children that I could have an HT room in our next house. Somehow all that seemed to change. Actually she really likes the 65" we have now, especially for the size room we have. She actually said to me a couple months ago "You know, I'm glad we got this size TV. I couldn't see us enjoying anything smaller."

I looked her right in the eyes and said "I love you so much."

Ok, so here's what I have. It's not much, but I call it home:

Hitachi 65SWX20B. Not DLP, but it does the job. I also use a Yamaha RX-V800 DD/DTS receiver and Bose speakers all the way around.

Oh yeah, and the kid in my blade picture is my son Jacob. Hopefully the heir to the Next Level Gaming empire. Heheheheh



And what I like to call the "Microsoft Cube". Regular units on the left, debugs on the right. There's even a PS2 debug in the picture, just to be fair.



Yes, that is a Gears of War faceplate on the debug unit. I wish I could say I whipped everyone's ass to get it in Multiplayer. But the truth is I got my ass kicked, and they gave one to everyone who played.



The retail unit has a neat Madcatz E3 2006 faceplate they gave me. It's actually pretty hip:



These are my other faceplates. Damn right I'm a Baltimore Ravens fan!! The other faceplate in the back was me trying that $20 NyKo GameFace thing. It's not quite as good as a real one.



Anyway, that's my rig.

I mean the GeoW faceplate is pretty koo

I think he meant GOW.

BTW the faceplate on the left is a Full Auto plate. Best Buy is selling those for $4.99 for anyone who's into collecting these.

There were a bunch of faceplates announced that MS will retail and i'm pretty sure the GOW faceplate was one of them. Expect it for $19.99 in stores!

Or if you're desperate you can snag one on Ebay too.

Believe it or not MadCatz was just giving them away at E3. It's actually a really nice faceplate!

For example, I visited some boutique audio brand displays at CES - particularly McIntosh comes to my mind immediately, as shown below. The setup had a bazillion watts of power and more than a hundred drivers in total in ceiling high towers, running off of some uber audio source.. When the audio started playing, I instantaneously felt that it 'sucked' (pun intended). For all the 'price-no-bar' gadgetry in that hall, it did not give me the same feeling as when I was listening to my favorite SACD on B&W floorstanding speakers powered by a humble Denon receiver and a run-of-the-mill Sony SACD player. Sure, the McIntosh setup would blow away my humble reference setup in terms of price, but in terms of quality?? Not to the same extent.

McIntosh's uber audio setup from their CES booth


would you mind letting me know which B&W speakers and Denon receiver you are running. I'm about to run something similiar and I'ld like to get your feedback on how you like it

My wife said something similar to that. After we got the 47" she said " we can't ever have a TV smaller than this now. I can see this better than I can see in real life." That was the best.

kicks: get your set calibrated; color temp will be vastly improved. The default settings for warm, medium and cool are usually way off. My set post-calibration (XBR 960) settled somewhere between warm and medium. Warm was way off, as were the others, but warm (i think) was closest to 6500 kelvin. YMMV.

I tried some of the calibrations people posted and I didn't like them. My tv looked more normal rather than a HDTV. I have a certain idea of what looks HD to me, usually pretty bright and colorful. At least that was for television viewing. I totoally forgot about the component outputs lol. I guess I will have to tweak it.

Oh yeah, man. You have to use component if you want to enjoy 360 in HD. Be sure to set your system to 720p, as your set is 720p native. Also, you might want to see what differences, if any, a VGA connection will give you. I suspect VGA might be the way to go on your TV. MS fixed the VGA wash-out problem with the new 360 update as well. Try 'em both and report back to us!

I already posted here before but my setup has changed a bit, i bought our 130cm rearpro TV in from the shed to one of our spare rooms, just for the sole purpose of the 360 i also bought a 7.1 surround sound receiver (sony str de698) and pushed it into the room with as many speakers as possible, now i can close myslef in that room and play without bothering the wife or using the plasma or the projector.

True but I think it's funny still. I wonder how many of those are real?
In all actuality I game on a 52 inch JVC D-ILA from about 10 feet. I don't have the awesome setups like most here but I consider it pretty damn decent. I use a Pioneer AV reciever for audio and KLH speakers 5.1 setup. My next upgrade is probably gonna be a reciever with HDMI ins/outs, I like the Yamahas I have looked at.
