I've been asked countless times about my system and what I use. I've never gotten around to taking any pictures but my good friend Shawn McGrath is an amazing photographer so I asked if he could do some shots for me. Room was done completely by the wife and I. Both of us work in acoustics professionally. The room was designed to be a reference for both video and audio playback with as little compromise possible for both. The room is obviously painted black with black velvet curtains made by my wife surrounding the screen and covering the side windows (along with black-out blinds). I also put Protostar flocking paper on the ceiling from the screen to the first reflection panels to cut down any reflections. Everything done in this room short of laying down the carpet and installing four dedicated 20-amp circuits was done by the two of us.

Recently had the entire room acoustically modeled and treated by the folks at Vicoustic. I will have a feature article about the process soon but here are some wonderful pics that Shawn took of the room after everything was installed.
Thanks to German Sotello for some new pics of the Legacy Audio speakers. I will have some better pics up later that show some other new goodies that are coming soon. The older pictures can be found after.
