I'm also excited to see how the media server works out. I know as soon as I got my squeezebox, I never used a CD again. I don't know whether it will be quite as revolutionary with movies/TV shows for me, but it should be nice, even if only to feed the 3 other TVs in the house.
I was a little tired of the lack of progress in the actual theater room, as most of the work has been elsewhere in the basement. So I mounted the subwoofer and front speakers!
Here are the Pics, as requested
The dual SDX-15 subwoofers!
Mounting brackets for the paradigm esprit's
The paradigm esprit speakers
I chose the esprit because I wanted to use the paradigm studio dipolar surround speakers and wanted a front speaker that could be easily hidden behind my screen without requiring the false wall be too far out into the room.
The bracket system to hold the speaker to the wall seems quite clever and sturdy. you can have -5,0,7,or 14 degrees of tow-in, and there is a hole designed to keep the speaker cable hidden behind. They only sell them as pairs, or as a center that has a horizontal tweeter. I wanted all of my speakers up front to be exactly the same so I rotated the tweeter/midrange holder 90 degrees, to allow me to vertically mount it like the others. Now to find a way to get some power to them!
