That is AWESOME!!!!!!! I have been waiting for a very long time to see some in depth pics of the "Fortress of Solitude. All I can say is WOW!!!! That is one amazing setup you have mi amigo! And the photos you took are primo! I love all the different angles you took of all the gear. Your system is definitely magazine worthy.

Thank you for sharing your system on here. I know it's going to get a lot of responses.

VERY nice system. That has to sound amazing. Is that a dedicated room?
How big is the room?

Hey Hey Waboman, fantastic brother. The McIntosh are the way you have an awesome setup. Those Fathoms 113 look impressive I love the cabinet the McIntosh are sitting in. Your photography is top notch. Well done mate. You and Seth have an impressive system especially with the Martin Logans. Well done.

Waboman, the system is just stunning! Denon, Mc and ML's! No doubt, one of the supreme systems on the sight! Thanks for sharing your accomplishment with us.

Thank you for the kind words, Seth. I appreciate it. It's because of you I finally got my a** in gear and took some pics. Muchas gracias, amigo.

Thanks g_bartman. It is a semi-dedicated room. It's 26.5'x13.5'x8.5', it actually opens up towards the back, if that makes sense.

Thanks ldgibson76. I've been drooling over all these wonderful systems on AVS, and with a little prodding and a kick in the rear I finally joined the club.

Great setup you have there. What's funny though is out of all that awesomeness the only thing I could think is: "I wonder if he's gonna get Michael Dorn to sign that poster?".

Yeah, what's up with Worf not signing the poster? Just like a Klingon!!

By the way Waboman, you have an impressive media collection.

And the Marvin the Martian figure along with Pinky and the Brian and Speedy Gonzalez....classic! I grew up on the Warner Bros., cartoons. Most kids of today haven't a clue of what a good cartoon is! You are alright with me!

Lol. It's a funny story. Michael Dorn actually signed a very small amount. It was brought to his attention there was a contract dispute and he wasn't getting paid to sign. So he took off (just like a Klingon). The few he did sign are worth a good chunk o' change.

Regards,

Thanks. Yeah, I'm a Loony Toons fan. I have a few more statues of different characters too. My kids and I still watch Scooby Doo and the classics. Remember when we were young and had to wait until Saturday morning to watch all the good cartoons? Now with satellite there's cartoons on 24/7... To quote Bobby Dylan, "the times, they are a changin'."

You're welcome. And I meant every word, your system rocks!

It was worth all the gentle prodding here and there, because the photos you took are perfect! And you said you don't take good pics.

Amazing system you have there. Very tastefully done.

On a side note, your signature quote, "Growing Older not Up" was my Father in Law's advice for me in my recent marriage. I believe he was inspired by a shirt from Senior Frogs. I find it to be useful for times when we take life too seriously.

Hi Frank.

Yes I agree, his photos came out awesome! It's tough taking good pics with no natural light, so I am very impressed. And thanks for the compliment on my system also.

Thanks guys. It's nice to hear. Plus with the Mac's all glass front panel everything is a reflection. Talk about ruining a picture fast. All you need is to see me in the reflection, all contorted trying to take a pic. Now that's scary!

Thanks, Gelinas. That's good advice your father-in-law gave you. I try not to take things too seriously. I actually got the quote from a guy who lives the ultimate lifestyle, Jimmy Buffett. It's a song title to one of his songs.

Thanks Klipper. Yes, I noticed a big difference with the Reel Traps in place. The audio became much more "tight" and not as "airy" if that makes any sense?

What a great hobby, bringing all of us together not only from different states, but different continents as well. All in the pursuit of the ultimate A/V. So we can turn it up and rock out!

That is a super setup, dude. I'm envious. Looks like a million bucks and it must sound phenomenal.

Maybe you could get a poster of the DS9 cast or CHiPs cast and get Dorn to sign that
