No kidding! Right down to the remote, our setups are very similar. I love the 4311/Ascend combo, especially for HT. The ability to fine tune using Dynamic Volume is great.

Thanks for the compliment! I enjoy my HT set up a lot. I spend hours on end watching movies and listening to music. My Rythimik will be delivered this Wednesday. I can't wait to get it dialed in. I will post updated pictures of the Rythmik and new Sharp TV once everything is set up and dialed in.

I seriously considered a projector instead of the Sharp 70". I ended up with the Sharp because I get a lot of light in my living room during the day. A lot of light comes in through the sliding door and the windows in the kitchen, which you can't see from the pictures. What I'm considering doing, but this is way more ambitious, is to buy matching consoles pieces from IKEA and floating it on the wall above the 70" Sharp. Then cut out a hole in the bottom for a retractable projector screen. I got the idea from another user in this thread who has the same media consoles as I do. Then I could do the Sharp for normal/day viewing and then the projector for movies.

Added a picture showing my new TV and Rythmik E15HP. Amazing sub. Will pick up another one.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I am looking to add another E15HP, probably upfront. It will require altering my media console though. I'll either need to remove one half of it or I may get another console altogether. Ideally I'd like to keep the Empire but I'll have to see how the subs play together.

Bittersweet day coming soon for me. I'm buying a new house. A lot bigger than my current but the living room set up isn't ideal for HT. I'll spare the details, but the main living room off the kitchen, where my HT set would reside, isn't conclusive to a traditional HT set up. I could fit my gear along one wall but the flow and placement of the couches would be a compromise. The best arrangement would be *gasp* TV over the fireplace with in ceiling speakers. I'm most upset about parting with my Ascend speakers. I could put it in the other living room but I wanted that to be a formal sitting area, not a HT space. Sorry I know, first world problems, but I've been agonizing over having to sell my Ascends .

Yeah I'm over due for an update . I'm heading out to LA for the weekend but will try to upload a few pictures of my new set up when I get back on Sunday. In short, I installed a Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 set up. Really digging it.
