I have that Star Wars Dark Empire 6 issue comic too, the one near the upper right in the picture.

build looks good.


Framed star wars band picture is a little scary. You've gone far beyond SW nerdom, my friend.

I had no idea there were actually numbered runs of that print, THAT is scary. hahaha!! Carry on, my friend. I'm probably just as big a SW nerd as you, I just have a wife that keeps me in check.

Completely different direction than I've taken, but I really like it, looks like a really fun place to hang out. And gotta have respect for a man who puts Archer in the screen shots. wink.gif

Yeah I just meant that I opted to hide pretty much everything - speakers, rack, subs, disc storage, where yours has it on display

Yeah I've seen a couple builds like that, seems like it works well and can look nice - what would you do with the center channel, something about the screen? Or do you have space (without changing screen) to do that? Or phantom center?

Have you thought about an AT screen so you can put the center channel at the proper height?

Good idea to center your dialogue

I was going to suggest the same, but assumed since the room is complete basically, that the OP wouldn't want to replace the screen. But if so, an extra benefit would be that he could go cinemascope to go even wider, and put all three LCR behind it.
