Hyperspin for all retro gaming needs plus - a real SOB to set up

Pioneer 1021-k Receiver - not the best but impresses me

Just started my vinyl collection but containes AC/DC to ZZtop about 50 albums so far

TV - Samsung 50" plasma 1080p - first thing that started all this really i bought about 3 years ago

Logitech Harmony 510 remote - Cost 35 dollars and still does macros and custom labeling on screen

PS3 for gaming needs like BF3 and also move it into the office to use my custom built g25 racing console and GT5:D also use the console for rfactor

Custom built by me entertainment center with custom cooling 200mm behind and 2-120mm fans underneath receiver (We Really crank it LOUDDDDD) and 200 mm behind HTPC with switch

behind center to turn on and off-run by a old computer power supply.

My setup is by no mean audiophile quality or THX certified but man this [email protected]#cker rocks all night and all day and by building most of the stuff myself, by having a masters degree in GooGle ( I used the search engine ALOT) i am very proud of my setup and wanted to know what ya'll think.

Future Upgrades:

Polk Monitor 70's for front and 60's moved to side

Emotiva 5ch amp for all speakers but that also involves upgrading my receiver

Projector - would like Optoma HD33

Build my own tube amp for stereo listening and cranking the les paul

Git rid of my girlfriends cat so the cat hair dont get all over my stuff - or get rid of girlfriend which ever comes first
