Default Anyone interested in showing there home theatre systems

I'll begin . This is my old system and new pictures are coming soon . 65" panasonic plasm flat screen as I hate LCD . I had studio 100 front speakers and studio40's in the rear . I have recently upgraded to the newest version of Paradigm studio speakers and have the 100 series on all four corners.
I have a dedicated 20amp circuit to the stereo but recently found out the PW2200 subwoofer should have a dedicated 20amp all it's own , so I'm having that done right now .
Here's the old . I'm running a Marrantz processor and seperate amp . Unfortunately I don't have an extra 10G burning a hole in my pocket as I'd upgrade to an Anthem P5 amp . It's 130 lbs and requires 2-15amp circuits to run properly .
So if I was install a second rear sub I would have 90amps dedicated to my stereo lol .





This is using a wide angle lens so it looks deeper than it really is and as I sit 16.5 feet away from the flat screen





This is in the basement where I have my phone modem , internet modem and router , arris gateway for TV with one terabyte external HD plus a network drive to store music in WAV that I can stream upstairs on the stereo .

The people I built the wet bar for bought one that, although used, still functions properly and looks good. All they did was replace the original speakers. I took them a box full of 45's (Oldies, Country, and Classic Rock) so they could replace some of the records that it was stocked with.

You do remember 45's, huh?

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

45's yes . In 81 when CDs were released I gave a friend all my vinyl , mostly boxes upon boxes of 45's as I bought the top hits every week on 45 .
Kinda kicking myself now lol

When I tried a CD I was amazed that I could turn my stereo up and there was very little skipping . Heavy bass notes would cause my needle to jump up and down and it was an expensive linear tracking turn table

Got a 19" TV sitting on a coffee table. Got a CD/DVD player. When I want a radio, I have a small radio headset. They all work. Don't need more, don't watch heaps of TV anyway - prefer reading usually.

I would only add one thing to the new setup and that's a TV lift (elevator).

I have a 55" screen which rises from under the floor and is out of the way when not in use.

I have yet to complete a cabinet to cover the top and make it 'cat' proof.

Regards,

Alan.

The TV, or the cat?
