Hey Hmank76,

No, the painters name is Lloyd Garrison. Some of his work is somewhat similar to Thomas Kincaid.

That is good as far as quality goes. Is he any cheaper?

I really don't know. I would suspect his originals are probably on par price wise with Kincaid. Here is a link to his website.

I'm going for a very similar set up with plasma mounted and center resting on the cabinet.

Are you using something between the center speaker and cabinet? I've been looking at mopads and stands but can't decide.

I'm just using the little rubber feet Klipsch provided in the box. What are mopads?

Well, I just expanded my 5.1 JBL Cinema Series system to a 7.2...so here's what I got:

Yamaha HTR-6160 7.2 Receiver
JBL Cinema Series CS480BG 5.1 Speaker System
Expansion Satellites JBL CS400SATBG 2-Way
JBL CSS10 150-Watt Subwoofer (assuming that this was the same one included with the CS480BG, adding in a second one for the 7.2 setup)
Radio Shack branded 16-gauge speaker wire

I'm hoping that expanding into 7.2 territory will prove better in the long haul. Haven't had one problem with 5.1 out of the box...but decided that to adhere to Blu-ray standards, as well as for any other sources that may take advantage of 7.2 setups, I just felt that it needed to be done sooner than later.

I owned the HTR-6160 and the initial CS480 set since mid-2008 already, so owning that system for nearly 2 years, I kinda felt that I needed to get more with the times and go with the full-blown setup.
I'm still surprised that they're still carrying the Cinema Series after all this time, but...the addon stuff like I got had to come from B&H Photo, tho. Amazon only carries the full 5.1 set, the addon stuff was through 3rd party.

-Panasonic 50" G15
-Dish VIP722
-Samsung Blu-Ray C6500
-Denon AVR1905
-Paradigm Atom L&R
-Paradigm CC 110 Center
-Mids and Rears are built into the ceiling (don't know brand)
-Sub - Dayton RS1200K
-Home Theater Master Remote

Toys are a Wii and Xbox 350

I can't recommend the Panasonic enough - its a great set and blows away all of my friends LCDs. I'm also very happy with the blu-ray player which I just got and I have been streaming VUDU on it which is a great service. The VIP722 is junk and i'm on my 4th one from Dish.

My Nikon fell off the tripod, so I'm stuck with a crappy point and shoot.

Front picture:

Salk HT3s and HTC, powered by a McIntosh MC303
Martin Logan Descent i Subwoofer
Denon AVP-A1HDCI
OPPO BDP-83 Blu-Ray
Comcast HD DVR
Also in the picture - Anthem MCA 20 for the rears

Rear picture:

Klipsch KS-525-THX surrounds
Second Martin Logan Descent i Subwoofer

Can't figure out how to have pictures show in line.... The carts housing the equipment...bonus canceled this year - Jim Salk has a cabinet design to match the finish on the speakers. Next year....

Hello all, new guy here. I hve been wacking my brains on this one for awhile. I remembered back in the 80s I saw which I believe is an AR speaker. It had a wooden cabinet, walnut or oak, but what stood out was it was wedge shaped. 90 degrees on one side and angled on the other(45?) I think it was about 5ft tall. the wood was molded around the upper part of the tweeter. I recall it cost $1k+ at the time. This was in '84-85 time frame. Any ideas. or definitely pics would help. thanks!

This thread is for people to let everyone know and brag about what we have, and to post pictures of our setups.

Please create a new thread for questions of this nature.

Front left and right: SVS SCS-01s
Center: SVS SCS-01
Rears: SVS SBS-01s
Sub: SVS PB12-NSD

TV: Panasonic 46" G10 Plasma
Reciever: Yamaha RX-V663

Next move is to replace front left and rights with SVS STS-01s and move the SCS-01s to the bedroom. My wife cannot escape my wrath!

Wow, sweet setups everyone, here's mine:

MTX Blueprint HT8253W Left/Right in-wall speakers (set at 0)
MTX Blueprint HT2625W Center in-wall speaker (set at 0)
MTX Blueprint HT822BDP in-ceiling rear Surround speakers (set on Bi-Pole)
Infinity PS-12 300w Powered Subwoofer
Dayton Contractor Series 8 in-ceiling speakers (kitchen)

Anyone else use MTX? I realize that they're not the high end stuff audiophiles like but I do like them and they cleaned up our room alot. Aesthetics were important also.
