Hi everyone...

I have the URC Universal MX-850 remote. It consolidates all my remotes and it has a radial infrared instead of linear. So I don't have to point at the devices to send commands.

Yes, I will definitely throw out that white table. It's very weak to support the TV weight and it's ugly as sin. I will wall mount the centre spk above the TV.

Yes, the interconnects are quite expensive. I spared no money in getting the highest shielded cable I could afford.

I live in a condo. lol... I turn the system on no sooner than 10:30 am and enjoy the music till about 9:30 pm at which I turn down. So far, I've been testing my neighbours and no one has complained. I've asked building management and they said I could play as loud as I want until someone complained. So hey, I tried???? I think my system is strong enough to produce high fidelity loud enough for a 2 storey home. I have not yet calibrated the system, waiting for the furnitures to come in and see how it affects the room acoustics. The Yamaha and the SUB came with their calibration mic system. Thought about putting up low freq absorber material against the condo entry door to absorb the sound from leaking out but it looked out of place and ugly.

I bought the system mainly for music. I love listening to recordings from my SACD disc collection. The TV doesn't get much of a workout. I only have it because I got a really good private deal for it, about a $1000 savings for new. I'm waiting for the Blu-ray/HDDVD battle to conclude. Originally I want tube amps from McIntosh but Bay Bloor radio stopped carrying them

Held back on buying the 6th and 7th channel surround bipolar speaker because my condo is very small. The new sound pre-amp and poweramp has 7 ch support.

Will send out new pictures showing details of interconnects and furnitures by end of August.

Thanks guys.
Equipements list:
- Yamaha Receiver RX-V659 (100w X 7)
- Projector Optoma HD6800 (Costco equivalent of the HD72)
- Screen: A accousticaly transparent one from TigerDirect, very cheap Mustang 92" white, no gain. ( I did not like the Greywolf that came with the projector)
- Front Speaker: Paradigm Esprit v.3
- Center: Paradigm CC-170
- Rear speaker: Paradigm Dipole
- Rear Center: Very very old Kenwood
- Subwoofer Energy 10"
- xBox 360
- Illico HD PVR box
I'm still waiting before buying the HD-DVD or Blu-ray player. They don't rent movies at my video store yet. So I use the xBox for DVD.

Music on my videos....
The "Upgrade or my Home Theater..." music is from Star War A New Hope. Music from the Cantina
The construction video music is some old jazz stuff...
And for the "Video Presentation" I'll have to check back at home, don't remember where I took it, I think it is the beginning of a dance megamix mp3 or something..

"Screen: A accousticaly transparent one from TigerDirect, very cheap Mustang 92" white, no gain."

I doubted the AT clasification but I found this befor I hit the "reply" LOL


Mustang SC-F106W16:9 106" Fixed Frame Tensioned Projector Screen - 56" x 92" Matte White 16:9 0.9 Gain Acoustically Transparent Snap Together Assembly Machine Washable Fabric

I wonder if that material comes in the electric modles?

Thanks
Phil

WOW. TATOO, thats an amazing setup. lookED like a million$ HT room.

only thing is that i wish u had NOT told us what the specs where. or atleast have LIED. LOL

now it does not look the same to me.

how large is the room? looks approx 15ft x 25ft.

if so...
My finished basement is approx 12ft x 20ft, so i am wondering if i will be able to pull off a similar setup.

costco has the same projector with 92"screen/ceiling mount for only $1700. looks like it also does 1080P!

Probably sounds stupid but I really like that simple 5 shelve stand, allows you quick access to the back of any of the devices. Overall, I like the clean and simple look that you have going on, some people over do it when they don't have to and then it starts to look tacky.
