Nice, what kind of speakers are those?

edit Wow, also nice CL9. Those things are extremely rare. What's your serial number? Wozniak is a genius.

Forgot to list them....They are B&W 603's.
I actually have 3 CORE's (8293, 8594 and 8614).
As they were going out of business I grabbed one along with the computer interface so I can reload the Operating System and backup the key definitions. Then I got a 3rd for almost nothing after it had been sitting in an Audio/Video store for years and they realized it was dead.
I actually had the "Home Minder" connected to it at first to manage my lights back in the late 80's.

No kidding, that's cool. I haven't seen one of those in a long time. Do you regularly mess around with it?

What a great setup! Kudos mate. Must be great to play the ps3 on a giant screen like that. Well done.

Thanks hotchip, yes PS3 is giant. I am trying to find out more about Motorstorm 3D game for it. None of the local GameStop stores know anything about 3D gaming. Since they can't afford a 3D TV they are clueless.
pcweber111, I don't use the CORE's anymore. I had some awesome macros on them, but I do a lot of programming in my job and spend time at home trying to make my remotes easy to use. I loved the Pronto for customizing, but it is an awkward device. I think Logitech is on to something with the Harmony line, but their web interface is amateuristic to say the least.

I agree, I wish Logitech would offer a more complete web solution, It's what it is though. It serves the purpose for my 550, which is all I can ask for I guess.

Oh it's a 3D tv, i didn't realize. That's gotta be absolutely amazing then at that size! You should try COD:Black Ops in 3D it's very good. What an awesome setup, color me green with jealousy. I like the universal remotes too, i don't know anything about the core but i may do some research on it. I've had 3 harmony remotes so far, and to be honest, none of them have really met my expectations. Had the H1000i, H880 and H550, all of which were sluggish to respond or responded too many times, when i tried to fix this with the timers it didn't work. I ended up giving 2 of them away and keeping the 880, i may have a shot at that one again.

I updated my system with a new Salamander AV Stand. It is shown holding my 65" Pansonic Plasma 3D TV.
The stand is amazing, it is modular and you can customize how many modules wide and high you want. I will fill some of the empty space with computer, iPad and future components.

The new stand looks great! How much clearance does it give you for a center speaker?

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

I have about 3.5 inches. It really dwarfs my center speaker, I can certainly buy a larger one in the future if needed.
I checked out your system, really like the progress you have made, that backlighting is awesome. I want to give that a try in the future.
