Thanks Frank. I wish this thread was a little more active, I really like seeing the different styles of rooms.

I wanted everything up front to be black (Dedicated to MarkB)so I sold the Silver Theta amps and got the black BAT. All the silver and white gear is hidden behind the shelf on the right where the Denon and Pioneer are. I have the Apple T.V., Apple Airport Extreme, Proceed Amp 5, Cable box, and Furman Reference 20 balanced power back there.

I took all my equipment down over the Christmas/New Year holiday and repainted the front of the room and built some new shelves for the equipment. I enjoy working on the room (although it get frustrating at times), but I promised myslef & my wife that this was going to be the last major overhaul. It took me three days just to get the wiring the way I wanted it and thats when I made up my mind that this was it no more overhauls just new equipment that swaps out..

Did I miss something did something happened to mark B?

I had thead black metal racks designed to fit in the cabinet and had a powe source placed for each shelf and a hdmi cable for each shelf so if I changed a player it would be easier to change. I'm tired of fitting my body in such a small place to unplug the power cord.

I don't know if something happened to him or not. I just put that little joke in there becuase he always said that he wanted Denon to offer the AVP in black in the U.K.

This is pretty much what I have done with these changes myself. If I make any changes from here on out it will be unlplug the old unit and plug in the new one. I am done moving equipment around and plan on leaving it this way for the forseable future.

What happened to your link that took you to your system thread.

Heres the latest Pic and if you look inside the cabinet you see three metal racks. The BD holders on the right have a Power points for each shelf and a Hdmi plug. Its great when you want to make changes but half through it your like why did i do this. But this has been the best change for me as know the simplicity is there.

Looks great. I have seen that picture before, maybe in the other thread. Nice and clean with no wire showing.

How do you like the Furman. I feel that was one of the best upgrades I have done to date.

I love the Furman it certainly has saved my equipment a few times certainly is the best upgrade I have done also.

To avoid being negligent, here are some photos of my system. I don't have a good flash for my camera (just the built in flash), so the photos could certainly be better.

Here's an overview showing the TV and cabinets. The TV is a Mitsubishi WD-65835 - the current Diamond Series DLP. The speakers in this picture are B&W Matrix 802 Series 3 left/right, B&W Matrix HTM center, and Velodyne HGS-18 subwoofer. There's a Crestron ST-1700C controller and wireless keyboard for my HTPC on the coffee table. My dad made the chest on the left which looks like an older piece of furniture, but uses ball bearing drawer slides and holds my DVD collection, owner's manuals, extra cables, etc.


The left upper cabinet contains an XBox 360 Elite, PS3, JVC HMDH40000U D-VHS VCR, Denon DVD-3930CI, and Denon AVP-A1HDCI. I'm seriously considering getting Middle Atlantic custom shelves for the XBox, PS3, VCR, and Oppo BDP-83 (which will replace the 3930CI) and rack mounting those items as I've come to REALLY like having stuff rack mounted because it makes it easier to work on cabling, and the components don't shift when you push buttons or insert/remove media.


The left lower cabinet contains my HTPC (and the external box for my sound card), Panamax MAX 5300 power strip, Crestron AV2 controller, Crestron CNMK mouse/keyboard controller (allows the Crestron equipment to control the PC), and a HomeVision controller:


The right upper cabinet contains my turntable (Basis 2001, Graham tonearm, Benz Ruby 2 cartridge), a Parasound Zhd 5x1 HDMI swither, 3 DirecTV HR21 Pro's (each with an AM21 OTA tuner box), and an older DirecTV HR10-250 (HD Tivo):


The right lower cabinet contains a Krell KPA phono preamp, another Panamax MAX 5300 power strip, 2 Crestron ST-COM modules, a Crestron ST-CS current sensor module, and the power supply for the Krell phono preamp. You can also see the backside of a Dell gigabit network switch above the Panamax, which is mounted to the rear of the rack:


The middle cabinet holds the TV, 2 Krell KAV-250a/3 power amps (to power the front, side, and rear left/right speakers with 250wpc), and a Krell KAV-250a power amp (bridged to 1000 watts to power the center speaker):


This shows the rest of the room, including the side and rear B&W Matrix 804 speakers. My dad also made the cabinet on the left which holds my LP's, extra cables, etc. Yes, that's a Victrola on the table in the back. The futon will eventually get replaced once I decide what I want to go with.


This obviously isn't a dedicated room like some of the others are so fortunate to have and I don't have acoustic treatments on the walls, but it works out surprisingly well and the system sounds great. We've got blinds we can drop to block the big windows to keep light out when watching movies or if it's too bright during the day.

I would love to take a pic of everything together. But all my A/V equipment is in another room from where I sit.

So sorry that I completely missed this post Wabo. I'm changing everything! I sold the DT's, and moved to VA MG's for now. I grew tired of the DT sound, and wanted something a bit more neutral.

I was looking into Dali Helicons, but it just wasn't in the cards. The VA's give me everything that I am looking for in a loudspeaker atm, and at the price I wanted to pay. Not to mention, I love their laxed, transparent sound.

I already purchased them, but I am in the process of looking at amps now. Looking into Wyred 4 Sounds SX1000's, but am thinking of starting out with their MC-5 for now.

In the meantime, I will wait for the rumored "mini AVP1" from Denon, if that doesn't happen, then who knows, the AVP1 may come back into the picture.

Nice looking happy place ballenone. That's one serious rack of equipment on the right and I absolutely love the JL Gotham on the left. I would love to have two Gothams in place of my two Fathoms. Very nice.

You'd have to give up both for one Gotham, can't you see there are two subs in a single Gotham? Sheesh!

I gave up two nuts and a left arm...but it was still worth it!





I think those two Gothams are responsible for some minor structural damage I found on my house the other day!

Got some new main speakers a little over a month ago, so I thought I'd post a couple of pics. The old speakers where Aerial LR5's with Sound Anchor stands, and the new speakers are Aerial 20T v2's. With this down economy I was able to get one of those once in a lifetime deals on the 20t's and I couldn't let it pass me buy. With these tough times it is a buyers market for sure.

The 20T v2's are awesome and took my two channel experience to a new level. I hated plopping the plastic down for them but after owning them for over a month now and getting them broken in along with positioned right they are just unbelievable.

The first two pictures are with the LR5's and the last two with the new 20t's

According to Denon market research, apparently Europe and Japan do not like black, while the US do not like premium silver. When they try and release black in Europe or Silver/Gold in the US they do not sell enough of them.
