Don't wanna throw spanner in your works, but...
The setup you have looks pretty good from the angle of the pics you took, but I know why you didn't post a pic from front on or from the right side. Unfortunately standing the PS3 up looks good only from one side. I have the same problem if I take the PS3 out of the cabinet I have it in. If I leave it in the cabinet it gets hot and goes to the third fan setting (really loud), plus the cabinet amplifies the noise a bit. I'd like to hide it in a drawer or cupboard and use bluetooth but then I can't use the great universal remote that works well with it at the moment.
I love my PS3, but if there's two things I could change it'd be the noise when it gets hot and the shape - it'd be nice if it "stacked" well with other HT components.
Anyway, I finally got tired of listening to the fan and took it out of the cabinet. My pride and joy is now sittin' quietly on it's side on the floor next to the HT cabinet.

How would it sound if you took the mains and swapped positions with the subwoofer and the CD/DVD rack? Space them out a little more and get the subwoofer in little more in. Just curious.

That's probably a good call. The wider sound stage might make for a better sound. I reckon putting the DVD rack on the other side of the palm and uplight 'cause it's a bit tall to put right next to the screen. That's a cool setup though.

Yeah, you're right - not too bad. Have you considered a small wall shelf just above the sub to perch the PS3 on (horizontal)? At the right height just above the power point it'd hide the point and look pretty cool IMO.
Nice looking cabinet/stand btw.

Why don't you rotate the PS3 so that only the curved side (with "Playstation 3" written on it) is showing?

No everything else looks so nice you don't notice the Ps3.

Agreed.

I have to say you have one of the cleanest and best looking apartment setups in this whole thread. Easily top 3 or 4.

Kudos on your good taste.

why not try placing the center on top of the stand now that you got that space free, bet it would sound a lot better.

I certainly wouldn't use wire molding....can't you just cut 2 small holes and drop the wires down the wall? It's only what, 3 feet? You've already painted, and put holes in the wall to mount the plasma....what's 2 more? It'll be a hell of a lot cleaner than wire molding.

Out of curiosity, what makes a cable in-wall certified? Some degree of resistance to nails going through it?

In most cases (with my installs anyway... meaning corporate/office building theaters) it has to do with the type of jacket/insulation the cables are in, as well as the materials used to make them. This is due to fire code... so if there is a fire they know there won't be specific types of gas being created by the flames consuming the materials... i.e. poisonous vs. plain old smoke.

You should replace the bed and sofa with a Futon, open up the room even more.

You convinced me.. Only problem is I share my condo wall with my neighbor and only have 1 inch clearence between drywall, and concrete will make it hard to fish it! But, that's the look I want! TV floating like a frame!

I'm only running 2 HDMI's to the TV and it looks like you're only running one. I did run the power cable through the wall for a few months, but then I decided just to pay the $100 and have an electrician install a couple extra outlets. One behind the stand and one behind the TV. As mentioned earlier I had him make one of the plugs switched and attached to a light switch so I can turn on the back light with ease. The biggest reason for the extra outlets though was that I share that wall with my neighbor, and I would hate to cause a fire or something, destroying other peoples homes as well as my own.

It looks good though iamitman. Since it's now a few feet back, don't forget to move your couch forward

Thanks for positive comment! I can't move the couch, but I can always get a bigger TV

I'm don't like the idea of folding up my bed and having the sheets get messed up everytime I want to watch a movie.
