Did see Don't Breathe this weekend and I wish I hadn't. To each his own and I love a well done suspense/horror movie, but this didn't fit the bill for me.
I see a new Resident Evil movie is or has been released (maybe still in theaters?). I am not into the Zombie Apolocypse movie theme, but some of those movies have fantastic soundtracks.

Set up #1: EMP e5Ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, SVS NSD SB12 sub, Marantz Slimeline 1504 AV receiver
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and EMPtek10i10i sub, Denon 1910 AV receiver
Set up #3: Philharmonics- BMR in a 2.0 system, music only, Yamaha RXV-363 AV receiver

Thanks for the welcome and intro. We will be moving to Pella on Sunday. Unless the weather (ice storm) is too bad in IA, then we will come down on Monday.

I'm bringing some stuff, but leaving my THTs here. We have a rental that is furnished. Having a tough time finding a house. Lol.

Very excited to meet some local AVSers and see some of your theaters.

Welcome to the area. We are about 25 or so minutes NW of Pella. My wife and I head down there about 1 or 2 times a month in the summer on our motorcycles for lunch at In't Veld meat market http://intvelds.com/ and I have an addiction to Jaarsma Bakery http://www.jaarsmabakery.com/

I love Pella...a great Iowa town.

Now to just get some movie nights scheduled once you get settled...

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

We love Jaarsma....evertime we went down looking at houses we made a trip there. Simply awesome bakery.

I'm down for movie nights. Going to miss those up here with Lukeamdman.

I will absolutely be down for some GTG's. And, just let me know when on the movies. Luke and I do movies regularly. We typically swap the place every other time. Lots of fun.

Late to the party, but welcome aboard Rowan611! Lived in Pella for about 10 years while working for Pella Corp, it's a nice town. George's Pizza is good stuff. Are you coming from Burnsville?

Wow. Thanks for all the welcomes. No, we lived in Woodbury, close to the Wisconsin border. Spent a decent amount of time in Burnsville hanging out with Lukeamdman - great times!

We're just settling in. We will be headed to Kansas for a few days; see fam before my wife starts her new job.

I actually just got my stuff all setup. Really missing surrounds and my THTs. But, it's better than nothing.

I'm on my phone, still don't have internet access. So I can't see where everyone is located. Who is in Altoona?

DLBeck and ZTFUL are in Altoona. Slarity is just north of them in Bondurant. I'm a bit further north in Ankeny. Draden is south of the metro in Indianola. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but that's off the top of my head.

Rowan, welcome from the eastern chunk of the state.

Don't forget to change your profile information to let everyone know that you moved down south to Iowa.

There is a chance some guys may come up to the Des Moines area after the KC Home Theater Crawl on Sunday (2/19). Is there anyone interested in hosting and showing your home theater? If so, we can put together a schedule. Thanks.

Don't have a HT I'd be willing to show off. However, I'd definitely be interested in seeing some in the area.

My setup isn't anything special, but if you need a place on the rotation I could certainly do it.

Edit: the Marantz has made an appreciable difference in the SQ (especially the low end) and I do have 7 channels now. So at least there are some new changes to see.

I don't think we are looking for anything all that formal...just trying to make it worth while for the folks who want to make the drive from KC. Of course, IMHO, David's theater is worth it in and of itself. Hehe.
