Well, hey guys long, long, long time lurker of AVS and I have been in envy of many of your guys HT Systems every time I look through this part of the forum. So I finally got a full time, decent paying job pretty soon after I got out of college about a year and a half ago, and this is what I have amassed since then for my little HT. I live in a small one bedroom apartment about 900 sq ft. and I would have like to set up my system in the living room but it is weirdly shaped and has a fire place where I would have liked to put the plasma, and I don't know yet if I am too keen on putting it above the fireplace. Anyway so it is all setup in my bedroom for now until I find away to make the living room work. Unfortunately there are still a lot of cables showing, and I have spent some time trying to round them up but it is difficult with the stand I have, so I would be happy for any suggestions. Anyway, here it is, tell me what you guys think.

Visual : Samsung PN51D450 720p Plasma TV
Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim 250gb
Sony PS3 80 gb
ATT Uverse Motorola VIP 1200 HD-DVR


Audio : Onkyo HT-R580 A/V Receiver 130 watt/ ch
Front Mains - 2 Polk Audio R50's
Center - Onkyo Center from HTIB (HT-S5300) ... have ordered a Polk Audio CSR to replace it
Surrounds - 2 Polk Audio T15's
Sub - 10" 290 watt Onkyo Sub from HTIB (HT-S5300)
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Headphones

And a Harmony 600 Universal Remote to control it all.

Her are the pics.

I approve of the Stars banner and jerseys. smile.gif That night they won in Buffalo was probably one of the best sports nights of my life. Turned the tv audio off and listened to Ralph and Razor the whole time. Man what a year. BTW, whose Ranger jersey is that? Also, are you a Zanardi fan?

That looks like a pretty awesome place to enjoy some games and movies. Any reason you didn't opt for the 3D version of that tv? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks pcweber for the comments. I 2nd that night in Buffalo, there is no feeling like it. Hopefully another one will come fairly soon. The Texas Rangers jersey there is of course a Josh Hamilton one, lol. And I am more a Sebastian Vettel for F1 and a Scott Dixon for Indy Car kind of guy. Back to the HT though, I never really got into the whole 3D thing, that I don't really want to have to wear glasses during a movie, it just seems to kind of take away from everything. But that is just me and I probably eventually need to give it another go.

Yep, I live in the northwest part of Irving near 635.

And I should probably update this thread as I have added new speakers and a new tv stand. Pics will come soon when I have a day off from work next week.
