My setup in the new apartment (sorry for bad phone pics):





Here's how it looks with my mood light (pic makes it look like it's bright....it isn't)





1. Samsung 52" B750
2. Vizio Soundbar
3. Sony Subwoofer
4. K701 headphones on a speaker stand
5. Slim PS3
6. 360S
7. Wii

Only three of us here, so one sofa is all I need.

nice. not to be mean, but is that an IKEA tv stand? im trying to upgrade my 1980's stereo rack that doesnt quite look like a 2010 av rack.
post #7896 of 8018
Why would that be mean? I wish Ikea were closer. I'd buy all my furniture there.

It's a stand I bought at Best Buy. In fact, I did something ghetto, and sawed off the top platform, because I bought it when I had my 67" Samung DLP. The stand was too high for the TV, and I had to tilt the TV so I can get a proper viewing angle. I no longer have that DLP, so now people can see where I sawed off the top part (you can see the brown corners in the pics).

Yes, I need a new stand, lol.

lol My ghetto setup with the Xbox connected to my computer monitor using a Monoprice VGA cable. I have to get the real deal cable next week because this one is pretty ghosty.

The black controller goes to my PC, btw.

I agree, Very Nice Indeed!

Heres a few newer pictures of my set up.



Pictures include my XBR970, ATT U-Verse HD DVR (had the tech run 2 cat5 wires, 1 for DVR and 2nd for my 360s), new 2channel speakers from RadioShack(not the SVS speakers I wanted but much better sound than the whimpy 40w HTiaBox speakers I had), and the new 360s Reach console. Note: last pic is old set up with COD MW2 screen shot and whimpy speakers.

SO!!! I thought it would be cool to look back at the pics of my old set ups... I think I posted my set up here every time I did major changes. Dating back to 2006! So for my enjoyment and your entertainment, my set ups:

2006 (Living in a 8x6 room with my parents seems like a VERY distant past):




2007 (Moving out to the same place I actually live in today, getting my first taste of a "nice" set up, compared to how it was before!):





2008 (Getting into my hobby a little bit more in depth, my girl friend thought I was nuts spending $500 on speakers, little did she know in the future that would be almost the price of one speaker ):




Today (This is how everything looks now!)






Looking back at my lil 26in samsung LCD back then, I never thought I'd expand the hobby as far as it has gotten. Yet, I'm extremely happy with where it's gone. My girlfriend then, wife now, wanted the room to become just an entertainment room. As you can see, her moving in changed color schemes and furniture. For the better wouldn't you say?

I have the same tv.. What center channel stand are you using. Your setup looks great.. Mike

The coffee table... I don't remember where I bought the stand. I believe it was from Amazon. I'll look later today and let you know.

Edit: Here you go! At Amazon, Omni center channel mount.
post #7914 of 8018
Derko, interesting to see your progression over the years. I wish I had pics of how my setup has changed over time. Unfortunately, the changes haven't been too drastic....

Anyway, it looks like you had the same Onkyo HTIB model that I have been rocking for quite some time in a couple of your pics. It looks like in one you had the whole setup, speakers and all, then in another you still had the reciever, but had upgraded the speakers.

Can you comment on how the new speakers performed with the original reciever. Also, what speakers did you have with that set up. I have been considering upgrading the speakers with my system for a while now, but keeping the reciever for a little while longer. Figure I can get some nice speakers now and then use those with a newer reciever later on if I ever finish off my basement.
post #7915 of 8018
I honestly don't remember... I went through like 4 receivers after that one and ended up with an Onkyo 606 for majority of the time and last week just bought NR-1008. So I'm not sure. If anything, I know that I changed out receivers because they've broken...

As far as the speakers. They were JBL venue series. I bought them from Best Buy while they were on sale.
post #7916 of 8018
I've been looking for a TV stand like that. Colors perfect!
post #7917 of 8018
Derko I love the old couch you had. It is what I call "ugly cool". I had a similar looking couch a few years ago and loved it. Comfortable, but not something a woman with any taste would even sit on.

You made it far with your gear in a short period of time. This hobby can suck the life out of your bank account. I bet within a year or so you buy another HDTV to "upgrade", and maybe even add an amp. You will find things to buy. Getting it past the woman is the hard part. Good luck!

Man, I feel for you guys that have to "get it past your woman."

Every year around tax refund season, the wifey asks me, "Isn't it time to upgrade (insert random A/V equipment)?" Seems like I'm always the one holding back a bit, waiting for a good sale or doing some research.

I'll never understand the excuse of "wifey won't let me." It's not like women don't watch/play/enjoy what we buy...and yet, we don't wear their 5,000 pairs of overpriced shoes! (Well, some of us don't anyway. )

Funny thing is wife my pulled the trigger on the last two HDTVs "We" bought. It was her idea and prices came way down. Trying to explain why I want $3000 for L/R speakers is a whole different story. I am one of the lucky ones where she basically just lets me do what I want, as long as it doesn't require selling her stuff . She has every right to question a purchase when you can buy something that basically does the same thing for a hell of a lot less. 30 minutes in the HT store demoing speakers and she gets the idea (and she has had her lifetime fill) .

Talking about HT gear with my wife is like her talking about a pair of boots or jacket that she wants. She gets this look in her eye like she is imagining she is anywhere but talking about HT gear with me. She doesn't care. Just like I don't care about clothing she wants. I would rather talk about anything else, but I do remember the make and model # so if she hasn't picked it up, I have a gift idea.

Some people have less disposable income than others and making a purchase is not easy. $2000 to one person maybe a drop in the bucket, but to another it is a tremendous amount of money. Since this hobby isn't exactly cheap, getting into high end gear can be a long process financially. People have different priorities in life. I just happen to put it very high on my list of importance (as I imagine most on AVS do).

As to your point of "Wifey won't let me", I agree. Years ago when I first lived with my wife (girlfriend then), she would try to pull that crap about money. I would just sit there and point out all of the money she wastes. Expensive Shampoo and Conditioner, Haircuts, her wardrobe, and an amazing ability to just waste money on really dumb things. I then asked her to find an equal amount of money per month that I spend on myself. It wasn't even close . she backed off and we are both happier understanding what makes each other happy. Hopefully people can get to know their wife well and really try to make her happy. She will return the favor.
