Is there some sort of cable management system involving the pillars? I though I heard something about that but haven't noticed it on Salamander's website.

I think the black on black will look sexy in your room. However, it will require more dusting.

The pillars provide no interior cable management. I suppose you could use a zip cord and tie your cables to the back pillars.

Salamander calls them "posts," so I'll correct myself. You're right, black will look best with everything else. The Sanus racks are all black so to have the main rack be a different design and NOT black could look odd, even if it's the top and bottom shelves only. Maple is too light and cherry wouldn't match the room's scheme. Walnut could work if I stick with the a la carte version (which I lean toward), but black is the only choice if I decide to get the fully-loaded version (and its extra weight). Then I'd have to do something with the Sanus EFAV rack and the Hooker console. No room for them.

All this maneuvering. I have too much stuff in this 1BR.

Thought I'd dust off this old thread. It's been awhile since I've added anything to my HT. But HTG brought the Darbee Darblet to my attention and I ended up ordering one. I ordered it thru AVScience and they can't keep 'em on the shelves. I should have it the first week of August.

Well with all the positive buzz surrounding the darbee darblet I had to see it for myself. At that price who can say no.

Exactly. Did you read that Widescreen Review review of it? I'm pretty stoked to get this little box.

OK. I have seen this system for a while now. I have always thought it was top notch. The speakers, amps and projector you have must really make that room look and sound great, But I always just admired and never felt like posting for some reason. Probably because our equipment is so different. But, when I played that Youtube video, and I heard The Thunder From Down Under, I just had to say something. I have been a fan for probably 27 years. I thought "Man, this cat has got to be cool if he is playing High Voltage smile.gif." So I felt compelled to post here. Not that it was a chore because it is easy to see that your system is top notch. But like I said, I lost control of my fingers when I heard that song tongue.gif.

Hey there, Mike.

Thanks for stopping in. I'm glad you lost control of your fingers and started typing.biggrin.gif Most definitely, AC/DC rocks. In fact, they're the only arena rock band that has never made a ballad. Think about it. No Every Rose Has A Thorn for Angus and the boys. When you mentioned The Thunder From Down Under, I immediately pictured Franin workin' it.tongue.gif

I'm always playing catch up to the mighty Franin and his quad, yes that's four, JL Audio Fathoms.

Yea. AC\DC was my first favorite heavy rock band. I do like the fact that they never did a ballad. Angus once said something like "what's the point." "There have been tons of band that have already done the ballad" Again, your system HAS to sound great with all that great MAC gear you have, I have also like ML for some time as well. So enjoy that setup and crank up "Whole Lot of Rosie", or if you just want the blues, just some "Ride On"smile.gif.

Whole Lotta Rosie likes her Big Balls. And she's a squealer.wink.gif
Those are AC/DC songs, for those who don't rock.tongue.gif

Too many things came up. Just broke the seal and took a peak inside. It's too late to watch Lockout now, but I will watch a few shows I DVR'd. I'm off to contort myself behind my cabinet and get darbeenated.

Okay Jeff you have had it long enough time to give us your review with a score out of 10. Waiting. .... waiting ......

Please pardon my ignorance but what's the purpose of the Darblet device, can it be compare to a scaler like the Lugamen or DVDO's or is a complement to one of them?

Lol. Sorry, mate. I really dropped the ball.redface.gif Last night I had to tear down my system. So I won't be getting any time with the Darbee for awhile. I'm passing the torch to you (don't worry, it's IOC approved). You should be receiving your Darblet soon. Looking forward to your thoughts.

It's not a scaler like a Lumagen or Duo. But it can be used in conjunction with those products. In a nutshell, "The Darbee's real time digital logic-processing algorithm uses parallax disparity as the basis for local lumi- nance modulation on a per-pixel basis to embed stereo depth information into monoscopic images. Using a patented defo- cus-and-subtract method, the process is selectively applied, based upon a fast and accurate saliency map called the TM Perceptor . The real-time processing is done intra-frame so no large buffer memory or time delays are required."

Getting the upgrade!

With much prodding by my good friend, Franin, i finally got off the fence and boxed up my AVP. She went in for the upgrade this afternoon. Now I can finally sit at the big boy table.biggrin.gif
