Now that's bang for the buck! You've pain less than most pay for an LCD or plasma. Nice job. When I had a Model C hanging from chains, I purchased some steel braided hose covers to cover the chain. White (or black ) painted PVC works well too.

Wow, I have been trying to figure out how to cover the chains and make it look tactful. The braided hose idea may just fit the bill. Thanks for the suggestion.

I like it a lot, I know there are better units out there but for the money I'll stick with the IN72. I just bought a HD DVD player (Toshiba hd-a3) and the picture through HDMI is incredible. balck level, shadow detail and color saturation all improved with this upgrade.

Thanks for the compliments, I really like the Polks for the money. I am thinking of upgrading the crossovers and the tweeters. For about $40.00 a speaker They could really sound nice. That would put them at around 90 bucks each and I dont think I could get any better for twice that off the shelf. This system beats the crap out of any HTIB i have found with comparable pricing. Not audiophile stuff by any means, but goes to show what can be done on a modest budget.

just estimating, but that receiver probably weighs at least 20 lbs. You might not want to stack it on top of your hd-dvd player.

Good point I actually had my ps3 on top of my A2 and it actually dented the top of it. I could see the receiver doing more damage then a ps3

WOOHOOO, I may be getting a PS3 to add to the setup. Gift from the wife, she let it slip that she was saving for it. Maybe even scoring a new flat panel as well, if that happens I will have to change the whole configuration of my living room HT. I'll post pix of course if all this comes to be.

I like your audio equipment!

Also good choice on the projector, if I wouldnt have gone with the sony VPL-AW15, I would have bought this one!

Look forward to the new "possible" setup!

The real honest reason I am using my Bose, is because one of the JBL woofers blew out.

Got the PS3 and a Samsung LN46A530, 46" LCD. I'll post pics when I get it all set up. Finally, 1080p gaming at last.

These upgrades put me at $3019.00 overall, not bad in my opinion. Some folks spend that on the display alone. I still have the IN72 and forgot to get a shot of the screen in the down position. I moved the screen back another 10" so that it drops at the front edge of the cabinet. Overall I am thrilled with my new system and am on to the next phase of development, a media server along with a better way of controlling it all.
