My 2 TVs are side to side. the Dynex one is always on RIS (Réseau Info Sport). This channel is diffusing sport news 24/24.

This is when I first turned it on. I also had my previous speakers.

Anyone know this manufacturer : Rolk olsen?

I bought speakers a week ago, I hope they are good quality speakers.

My Home Theatre Photos

I figured it was about to time to show my system as well. This is how the layout will stay untill my new home is built next summer.
This next photo shows my subwoofer under the centre of the entertainment unit. The unit was intended to have an electric fireplace where my sub is, but I intentionally did not buy the fireplace knowing that I was going to put the sub directly under the Plasma when I saw this Entertainment System in the store. The salesman could not usterstand at all why I did not want the fireplace untill I finally explained to him that I was putting a sub there.

Sorry for the terrible photos. They were taken on my cell phone.

Wow, looking at one of the photos on page 4, was that a Tizio lamp? When I wanted to buy a pair of Tizio lamps in early the 1980s (I guess we're showing our age :), they're all sold out so I got a pair of Dove lamps instead, plus my wife likes the Dove lamps a tad better than the more masculine Tizios. Both designs are still beautiful after all these years.

Yes, that is a Tizio lamp. I got it on sale from Royal Lighting on Avenue Road in Toronto in 1999. I had been wanting one for years and it finally came on sale. I just checked their website and it's not listed, although I'm sure you can get it somewhere - a search on the web found several models, etc.

Just for laughs, Here's my "home theater" setup :D
Hitachi 51uwx20b
Home Theater Pc
Onboard sound (looking into good soundcard)
Peavey Cs800 powering mains
Behringer GEQ3102 31 band graphic stereo equalizer.
Vintage Cerwin Vega V 29's (original surrounds)
Modified Xrocker Sound chair as rears (directed the sound forward with cardboard)
The vega's have surprisingly quick response for 15" woofers. Might be hidden gems among pa equipment, they work for me :)

You piqued my curiosity. What is an Xrocker Sound Chair?
