Very clean. I like the color of the walls and how they contrast with the floors and trim. I also love the lighting. It all makes for a very cozy movie watching and game playing experience (assuming you use your PS3 for games too).

Would you mind giving us an equipment list, along with close-ups of the gear itself? I recognize the Klipsch speakers and Velodyne subs and if I see correctly it looks like you have a Pioneer receiver. I can't make out the rest of the stuff though.

Oh yeah, gotta love the Moose antlers! Did you hunt them yourself or just buy them?

Wow. Very nice.. Not much to really say.

Very clean setup. I'd add artwork but I think it would almost clutter the look.

Aw I was hoping you built the table by hand and wrestled the moose down by hand as well

This is seriously one of my favorite rooms here. Mountain man shiek.

I absolutely love it! The only thing that would make it better would be a plasma on the wall and a cool piece of furniture that matches your table under your center channel. Very very cool room!

Jsgrise, Great setup my man!

As far as the artwork goes, I would HIGHLY recommend you look into GIK Acoustics. They make acoustic panels with your choice of artwork.



The artwork you see are actually room treatments. The artwork is by Stephen Yates.

Note: The photo above is from 6Moons review and is of Dan Modwright' factory.

Hi jsgrise, yeap, a really wonderful setup you've got there. Congratulations for your hard and esthetic work! On a separate note, thanks also for the very good quality photos!

After taking a close scrutiny, please allow me some thoughts and comments as follows:

1. If you still have a chance you may consider to tilt the center speaker a tad bit downwards to face the main listening position at seated ear height (just like the way you toed in the front towers). Due to directionality issues this will serve to improve audiability of dialogs in your system.

2. It is always a good idea not to put the sofa against the back wall but leave a certain depth, this can take care of sitting out of unwanted standing wave nulls and peaks that occur in any room at their resonanse frequencies. Well done here.

3. This nice front wall suggests the idea for the future to install a projector with a screen as wide as it can get. Ever thought of it? I bet you did!

4. You might have had your well established considerations for a dual sub setup in this given sized room. Care to share? Seems a bit overkill, but just curious.

5. Lastly, some cables visible at the right side give a bit of a distraction for the viewers eyes, you may have some homework to take care of that phenomenon. While youre at it, you may want to look here http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/rs204/index.php to find something similar that will make your life even more comfortable as regards the turning on and off of the lamp.

Congrats again!

Beautiful room! I love the simplistic style of it and the black pain with the spots of white here and there at the door and windows really pop out. Very clean and exactly my type of decor style. Great job.

1. Done!

3. I thought about going for projection for a long time. It would be the ideal, but kind of expensive if you wanna do something that's worth it (JVC Pro). Maybe in a near future

4. Going for duals isn't an overkill in my opinion, but rather a must if you can afford it. Combined with the SMS-1, it kicks like a concert!

5. Nice gadget, but it won't hide the wires

Thanks to all for your appreciation. Like I said, I'm looking forward to compliment the walls with some artwork.

I'll keep you guys updated.

Thanks to all of you!!!
