How tall are your stands for your front left and right surrounds? Where did you run your speaker wire for the rear surrounds?

Measuring the stands they are from the base to the speaker it's between 24 and 25".

If you look on the pictures I pulled the carpet up and tucked both surround cables (and originally the sub's cable) all underneath the white baseboard on the far wall. Then it comes out and just rides behind the couch since no one can see it back there.

Always good to see another ex owner!

Much better in the front. Plus it looks like a beast and offsets my HTPC being on the other side. It blends with the rest of the front sound stage being up there with the rest of the speakers instead of by itself.

Anyways, it's late here now I'll post up some pictures tomorrow more up close of some of the equipment. I didn't see until just now people were posting up in my thread.

Insidious is down to a 6.9?? No way!!! Are those the D5K or 7K? Pretty sweet. Always flip out on that XBMC, does it take a long time to set up?

Those are Denon AH-D7000s. XBMC doesn't take that long to setup once you get the hang of it. I did more playing with it last night I'll post up the photos in a second (I'm not shooting another video) but I've integrated ESPN3 and a lot of free cable TV shows into it. I'm going to do more playing with it now but check back in the thread in a few I'll post up some new features I added into it.

It's been 8 months and still thumping strong no complaints (at least not that I've heard).

Wow! So lucky. Almost makes me want to get a sub. How far away is the sub from the closest shared wall?

the apartment complex I'm at is very "open" to the outside so I'm on the first floor and share no walls with neighbors. I just have someone above me on the 2nd floor and currently no one lives on the 3rd floor.

See photo below there's a walkway between each 1st floor apartment. That's my divider between neighbors.
