Well, finished the setup in my condo for now. Room is approx 14' x 21'. System consists of:
Denon AVR-1604 (rated 6 x 75 watts, though I'm only utilizing 5 channels)
Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 40" LCD (a little small, but a perfect fit for the opening beneath the stairs)
2 x Phase Technology Teatro 7.5 Towers (7" Vapor Deposited Titatium woofer, 1" soft dome tweeter)
1 x Phase Technology Teatro 6.5 (center channel, 2 x 5.25 mids, 1" tweeter)
2 x Phase Technology Teatro 4.5 (surrounds, 5.25 mid, 1" tweeter)
Dayton Loudspeaker Titanic Mk II 12" 4 ohm. 4 cubic foot enclosure tuned to 23 hz with 4" dimater aeroflow port. 250 watt dayton plate amplifier. Custom build by yours truly. The Wood Vinyl covering isn't in the greatest shape after about 5 moves and some abuse, so it's a good thing this monolithic piece of equipment gets to hid behind the TV.

I've had the speakers, sub and reciever for 5 years now and they've held up great. Recently acquired the TV and Blu-Ray player. The Phase Techs sound great and have really held up well, can't really complain for the price (think I paid about $1300 for all the phase techs).
The electronics are currently sitting on top of the sub, which is directly behind the TV....this causes problems sometimes because my panny blu-ray player will skip during bass-intense passages. I need to either put some kind of shock absorbing material under the panny or figure out a new location for it. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with it.
I may upgrade the denon avr-1604 to an HDMI capable reciever in the future, in order to take advantage of the new Codec's on most blu-ray soundtracks, but I'm in no hurry as it sounds pretty good to my ears right now.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
