Very nice setup, vancouver.

The HTPC can be seen inside the left end of the furniture along the left wall. I'm hooked on HD-DVD now but will get a BD player for my HTPC once they become affordable.

BenQ PE8700 projector
Motorized 2 m wide screen
Intel Core Duo E6400 HTPC with Radeon X1950 Pro
APC SmartUPS 700 UPS for the HTPC/projector

Denon AVR-3801 receiver
2x Embla Adela 600 W @ 8Ω (ICE power) monoamps
1x Embla Tinea 300 W 8Ω (ICE power) monoamp
B&W CDMC-NT centre speaker
2x B&W CDM7-NT front LR speakers
2x Mission M72 rear speakers

Today:

Screen down:






One of my homemade sub-micro helicopter and my first two HD-DVD movies. I have nine in total.

Sorry I had to chaneg my original post after reading which amps you had.

By the way how do you like the 2x Embla Adela 600 W (ICE power) monoamps? My Rotel 1077 also uses B&Os ICE Power.

The Denon receiver and DVD-player will be replaced with a processor and CD-player later. I'm using the mono amps on the floorstanding speakers so they are not starved for power.

Right I noticed that and changed my original post accordingly. Wow 600 watts of ICE power!! My Rotel only has 100 watts/channel of ICE and is crazy with accuracy and how "powerful" they seem.

Not as fancy as 90 percent of the rigs Ive seen in this forum
Im limited to using my small bedroom for movie watching, hopefully in the future I can build a dedicated theater room, similar to almost everyone on this forum.

Deja-vue: Now that is quite the custom wall. I'm guessing the dvd cases are behind the doors?

vancouver: That is a neat AV Rack. Are those shelves adjustable inside?

RnB180 - For gods sake, how did those HD DVD's get that dusty on the top of the case this quickly. Please take a damp rag and wipe them down. (Dust drives me crazy) Or is just the adhesive residue from those da*n anti theft tapes they use? Urgh.

its wierd, you dont notice it in person, but the camera seems to catch them and exagerate the dust. as you can see the top shelf are the older titles that dont get much play and the lower shelves are the less dusty newer titles.

I think it also has to do with the residue that seems to attract dust much more.
