    From top to bottom:
    Denon DCD 1290 CD Player
    Pioneer Elite SC-05 7.1 Receiver that replaced my Yamaha RX-V995 5.1 Receiver
    Sony BDP-S300 Bluray Player (This player will be removed once I upgrade my Sony BDP-S300 to a Denon DBP-1611UD Bluray Player)
    Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD Player
    Denon DVD-2200 DVD/DVD-A/SACD/CD Player (This player will be removed once I upgrade my Sony BDP-S300 to a Denon DBP-1611UD Bluray Player)
    Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD/CD/SACD Player
    Fios Cable Box
    Denon DTR-2000 DAT Recorder
    The Denon CD Player may end up being removed and placed in my bedroom with the old Yamaha RX-V995 receiver. And I might also take the DAT deck out and put it in the bedroom system as well. I also might be running an ethernet cable from the router to the Pioneer Elite Sc-05 to stream music????

    Denon Bluray DBP-1611UD Player is now ordered from a specialty A/V shop here in Northridge, CA called Sound Factor. Will be going to pick it up on Friday and can not wait to get it hooked up and put a movie through it!
    Sound Factor used to have a couple of locations and had to consolidate to one, I hate seeing good stores not getting business while POS places like Best Buy who have crappy selection survive. If you live in the So Cal area and are looking for a place to buy your gear give Sound Factor a chance to earn your business and pass them along to a friend.

    New Denon DBP-1611UD player just added to my A/V system :D
    Am very happy with how fast the player boots up and how quickly the menu loads up! Picture is way better than the 1st gen Sony bluray and the lossless audio tracks sound great!

    I still need to do some wire management and organize all the wires I need to have so it looks clean, think I will do that tomorrow.

    Just ordered a Polk Audio Subwoofer
    Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer
    Driver Units: 1 - 12" Diameter, High excursion polymer composite cone with hi roll surround, shielded
    Power Rating: Power Output: 300 watts Continuous Average Output Dynamic Power Output: 460 watts
    Frequency Response: 23Hz - 160Hz
    Manufacturer Warranty: 5 years limited
    http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/products/recent/psw505/
    I might just upgrade the old 12+ year old Polk CS100 center channel to this a Polk Audio CS2 Series II Center Channel Speaker
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290212
    And then I am thinking of two pair of these for rear speakers, Polk Audio Monitor30 Series II Two-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair to replace some Advent Marble two way speakers.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290200
    Hopefully I can upgrade the center, rear and subwoofer to something better when finances get better. But sadly this is the first sub I have had in my HT and have never used a sub in any of my home theater configurations in the past.

    Currently rear speakers are still wired as pairs from when I had my Yamaha RX-V995 5.1 Surround Sound Receiver. Hope to get a 100' spool of speaker wire with two Audio Quest Forest HDMI cables in the near future!

    Finally got Lord Of The Rings EE on Bluray disc, now the question is what to do with the TE and EE on DVD. I might keep them just in case the bluray player goes in the shop?

    Can not wait to upgrade to a native 1080p 60" display or maybe even a 4K projector if I can not upgrade for a few more years. The only question remains is how much longer my original bulb in my Sony 3 chip LCD rear projection HDTV will continue to work? I purchased my Sony KDF-E50A10 back in 2005 and it still has the original factory bulb installed and still working great!

    My HD-XA2 Toshiba HD-DVD player arrived from San Diego, CA today via the USPS. The player looks and works great and all I need to do is to wait for the new Audio Quest Cinnamon HDMI cable to arrive so I can swap out the cable from the Denon bluray and put it on the Toshiba HD-DVD. And test out to see if the HD-XA2 bitstreams Dolby True HD and Dolby DIgital Plus from the HD-DVD player. This was my first purchase from Ebay!

    My next upgrade for the home theater has to be:
    Upgrade Center Channel Speaker
    Upgrade current Sony LCD 50" HDTV to a 60" 1080p HDTV

    Would love to add this turntable to my system to replace a old jvc ql-50 with speed issues. If it happens this year no problem if it doesn't then it will happen when it happens!
