Alright...so I got my new speakers (Polk CS2 and pair of Monitor 60s). I havent figured out exactly where I wanna put everything...so any suggestions would be appreciated. I am anticipating placing the PS3 vertical on the left cabinet speaker, similar to where the xbox is.
What a nice improvement to your setup. How do you like the CS2 and Monitor 60's? Exact setup I was thinking of upgrading too. I have CSR and R50's right now and am very pleased with Polk. I would put the PS3 on the other speaker like you were saying. Personally, I have mine sitting on top of my subwoofer and it is a lot quieter now. Haven't heard the hairdryer blowing since I moved it there.
I have that exact cable box, and holy hell, is it HOT! Your PS3 must get seriously warm, if not hot.
I would definitely consider moving the PS3 to allow proper ventilation for your cable box, let alone your PS3.
I am in the same boat as Avarice...it runs pretty cool, but i dont like my PS3 being hidden (I am one of a few that actually likes the way the PS3 looks).
I am considering some sort of two shelf av tower to stack up a few items on. I can go the route of putting the 360 on one speaker and the PS3 on the other, but like I said, I want to put the receiver in the middle (optical cables are getting bent because of the cable mgmt rail). This leaves me with trying to find a spot for the cable box.
BBS G35...it was like photo hunt (those touch screen games at the bar) when looking at your first two photos. I was like...there are mirrors in the second but none in the first, where's the wendy's cup, there's no lamps in the first one!?!
Pretty dern nice setup though. I really like the arctic white lighting on either side of the TV.
It's funny that you can tell almost immediately who is married and who isn't from these pictures. Anyways, great setup.
Well, im not married yet, but soon to be. I made a bet with my girl that if she did not hear an audible difference with a before and after with the acoustic panels, I would gladly take them down quietly and sell them. As you can see, they do make an immediate difference, even to those that know nothing of sound.
PS3 is by far the best BD player on the market. The fact that you can get your fw updates via the web is what sets this thing apart from the rest. It's future proof. Also, you don't have to sit there and wait 3 minutes for the thing to boot. It's also extremely quiet.
