Hello Frank.

It's been a while. How has my AV Brutha from down under been?! I hope all is well with you and the family. Are you still trying to convince the wife of the benefits of the masking system for the screen?

Thanks for the encouragement and as a whole, retail is still on the down side, although there have been some bright spots. Best Buy posted record profits last quarter. So it's not all bad. The jobless rate in my state is hovering around 8%.

@ld

I have to give you unlimited props for even trying to watch a movie with one eye covered!!

I was thinking the same thing, we take for granted both vision and hearing - and many other things related to our health.

Let us know...

peace

Hello Dan.

I will PM you in the near future with all the details. It's been a wild ride, that's for sure.

Lawrence hope all is going well. I hope you get the eyes sorted, ceratinly not a nice thing. I'm hoping it all goes well for you.

8% is still quite large and definitley not a nice thing to see. It just amazes me how these companies think that the non HT enthuiasts are all going to run and upgrade to 3D the way the economy is going. Most people I see are getting by still watching DVD and buying them second hand at $5. It just shows the sign of the times of where everything is going.

My masking system project is scrapped as my wife said a big fat NO. It doesn't bother me as much as I don't know where things are going in the next 10 years. Like most of you I'm just sitting back and enjoying and if it ain't broke why replace it.

Anywhere take my friend and hopefully we will are share in good news regarding your health.

Hi LD.

Been awhile. Hey, congrats on the new job. It's always stressful acclimating to a whole new way of doing things at work. I'm glad the transition is going smoothly for you. Sorry to hear about your eye. That sucks! Hopefully, it's a quick & painless procedure to correct.

Be well, my friend.

Almost done: the only things left to do are the splashes in the kitchen (next week) and to start taping and texture in the audio room. I am starting tomorrow (Sat).

I will be there all day tomorrow and Sunday. Haven't taken many pics yet, but I'll try to post a few.

Hello HTJunkie33.

Thanks for the kind words and acknowledgement. Yeah, I definitely understand the the affinity for less components. I myself will be making the transition to a cleaner and more efficient look in the very near future.

Thanks again.

Thank you for touching base. I have been off the grid for a while, but I do at times log in just to see what new on the AV front. As for the new job, busy is an understatement. It's coming along, but there's a lot to learn in a short amount of time. So much so, that I have very little time to hang out at the forum.
Not only that, but recently, I woke up a couple of weeks ago with severe double vision! So I've been in and out of doctor's offices for the last two weeks. Not having correct vision is a challenge. I'm currently wearing an eye patch. Apparently, my left and right eyes are having communication failure. They're not working together. Now, I can see correctly out of either eye. When one eye is covered, I'm fine. So watching movies is at best, a tolerable process, but I'd like to have both eyes functioning together. I have several more procedures to undertake before things get better. Such is life.

Enough about me, I think the last time we communicated, you either acquired an Emotiva amp or was in the process of adding one to your already sweet setup. How are things with you and family?

Regards,

I didn't know about this. I wish you the best on the double vision, and will say a prayer today.

Hello AVSForum/WYSC Thread Members.

It's been since July 17, 2010 that I've posted in my thread.
I'm still alive and other than some minor adjustments, my system hasn't changed that much. I added an Apple TV 160gb and did some new cable management.
I will be adding a HTPC, the PS3 Slim and hopefully, a new Pre-pro and Amp. I will also add a 1080P flat panel in the near future! Other than that, life is good!

What is up ld!!!!

For those who are new to this section, ldgibson has been one of the anchor members. He kept the discussions going when everyone else was out and about... He was always here welcoming new members, helping everyone (moi included) properly post their pictures, with av questions, suggestions and so on, you get the idea...

WELCOME BACK LD!!!!!!! (I was never able to get them fancy smilies, so these two are going to have to do... Wabo will probably bring it strong...)

Now I know you'll have some pics for us in the near future...

Cheers!

This is really . LD is back in the house. Good to see you back. I've been following your other thread (on that other site) but I and others are glad to see you back here too. It's going to be fun once you get the new 1080 flat panel. Looking forward to some updated pics.

Hey man, good to see you back here.

Very cool on your Apple tv. What pre/pro are you thinking about getting? The Marantz AV7005? Since you're also in the market for a new tv, are you considering 3D? Or is that something you just don't care about?

Anyhoo, good to have you back around these parts again. Lets not wait another 8 months to post.

Hey LD welcome back, how have you been. Last time we talked you were having the issue with the eye, hopefully all of that is sorted. Good to see you again.

Thanks Prepress.

How have you been? I apologize for just responding to your post, but work has me very busy. Working a 60 hr/wk schedule.

Due to my ridiculous work schedule, my visits to the forum will be limited to a post here and there and just the ever so often lurk.

It's good to see that the usual suspects are still holding the WYSC thread down!

Hello hikarate.

Man, it's been a while since I've exchanged posts with everyone.
I will post new photos of the system as soon as the modifications are complete. They system really hasn't changed much other than the addition of an HTPC, Apple TV, a new HDMI/7.1 matrix switcher and PS3 Slim. I'm still jonesin' for the Rotel gear! In due time I guess.

Hello Dan. (My West Coast Brutha from another mutha!)

I hope all is well with you and the Mrs.
Thank you for the kind words. I wish I had the time and energy to stay involved in the threads like I used to but due to an insane work schedule and an all out lack of energy, my contribution to the WYSC will consist of the occasional lurk and perusing of the section when time allows. Of course I will touch base with you and others when my system finally transforms into something more current and modern.

I will update my photos in the near future, that you can be sure of!

Wassup HTG!

Thanks for the kind words Buddy. Yeah, I have been spending time over on the other side! But I do miss the WYSC brethren!
As I told Dan, prepress and hikarate, due to the limited time I have off, my visits to the WYSC thread will be mostly of a lurking nature with the occasional posts.
No doubt, you guys have been missed!

Update: My left surround speaker was minutes if not seconds from taking a 6 ft plunge to the floor. The anchor holding the speaker somehow became very loose. Luckily I noticed it. I just repaired the area and now it's very secure. That was a close call!
