Still getting things ready for the big day..
As you can see, on the left and right sides of the old TV, there is now a bit of room. This is because I (temporarily) moved the Xbox 360 over to the extreme left and on the other side, I have the pre-amp and Laserdisc player moved a bit more to the right. There will now be more than enough room to fit the 151FD. It will be close, but "hopefully" it will not look too cramped once the new screen is in place. I'm not going to worry about that too much as I think it will look ok. Also, you will notice the wires going across the top of the old TV. I had to move those from the bottom buried under many more wires and get them out on top since those are the only ones that will get stretched all the way from once side of the unit to the other. Because of this maneuver, those wires will now easily fit behind the center cabinet once it's place.
I don't know if anyone else does this, however I always like to think about the first images I would like to see (or hear) on a new device. Hmmm, what should I play? 2001? After all, it is one of the titles D-Nice suggested that would be good for showing off blacks. Problem is, should I watch the Laserdisc version or the Blu-ray? Hmmmmmmm. Tough choice! Particularly since I don't have a Blu-ray player! Ok, maybe I should pick out something on DVD. I never bought 2001 on DVD since I knew Blu-ray was coming out. How about Aliens?!!! I've got that one on DVD and it's another D-Nice pick! Oh by the way Hamsamish09, does anything look familiar on the table? Maybe I will play that one first...the first 150 hours that is! Thanks again for the DVD!
Fair warning...there may be some reddish shots of the arrival of the 151FD. My point and shoot digital camera JUST starting given me trouble. In this shot you can see the problem of a red streak and a reddish color overall. Oh well. Anyway, here's a shot of some MDs and other video/audio software that's rarely out of the wooden drawers. This was done to reduce the weight so it will be easier for the movers to move the cabinets around.
Now I should probably get some sleep!
