Hello all! This is my first true attempt at a home theater other than HTIB. Honestly, it's geared more towards a 2.1 style 'music theater' than a movie theater, though I do like my eye-candy.
So here's the equipment list:
- Pioneer VSX-1021-K Receiver
- Boston Acoustics A360 Towers for Front
- Boston Acoustics A225C Center
- Boston Acoustics A26 Bookshelf for Surround (Not installed yet)
- (2) Velodyne MiniVee 10 Subs
- Aperion Zona Wireless Bookshelf for Zone 2 (Currently in my bedroom
- Linksys WET160N wireless bridge
- Linksys SE2500 ethernet switch
I was shopping for a stand for a long time to find something I really liked. I ended up finding the JSP Vivaldi TV Stand to be the one I wanted, but for a ridiculous $1700+.

Plus, it's on backorder from practically everywhere that carried it, so I set out to build it myself! A trip to Lowes and $220 later, I came home with
some Aspen boards and Birch Plywood to start my stand. I haven't yet decided on a stain color, but I when I do, I'll have to take it all down and
finish it. Here's the results!

Where the real work gets done
My newest addition, Belkin PF30 Power Conditioner. This made my wiring situation much better. I can now place the TV Stand almost flush against
the wall. I HATE messes of wires just sitting around!

Accidentally ordered a second alarm clock, so I figured out a nice convenient place to use it. Certainly helps the time from slipping away while
I'm relaxing on the couch enjoying my music. The other device is just for giggles. It lets me keep track of my power consumption from devices.
I'm pretty sure I've analyzed every device in my house at this point. lol
HATE loose wires...
Audio enjoyment on the go!
