Lots of money but the end result is worth-it, just like spending a few hundred for Outrigers for look and stability.
Well, I have to say they look clean and nice (I didn't use any sleeves on mine, was fine with the look, but did use locking banana plugs also).
Thanks for the comment - all the sound treatment was due to the small room (and some think I'm crazy for doing 11.2 in such a small room, but it's still effective and fun!).
I didn't notice the outriggers at first, but now they really pop out. Are they from Soundocity (http://soundocity.com/products.html
)? I had looked into getting some for my towers (noticed you also put them on your center stand) to make it easier to level and adjust. My speakers come with their own version of outriggers but are a PAIN to adjust (like most speakers, you have to do it from the bottom). I may have to get a couple pairs for mine! If you see the one's on the bottom of my towers, you can tell they are hard to adjust. The stands for satellites are easy to adjust though, they have long spikes and are tri-pod bottoms so very stable.
It might be more visible in the darker pic (upper one is with a bright flash). Someday I need to change out the carpet and put dark carpet in there. All speakers are from the NHT Classic series.
I don't want to clutter up by adding more pics since it's easily in my profile like you found.
