    I joined this site a couple of years ago, and have been slowly accumulating the hardware needed.

    As of yesterday I have the complete beginnings to a Home Theater system.

    I'm looking to configure it as best it can be done. I have so far been able to get it working appropriately. Played my first DVD on it (Star Wars Episode One), but am looking forward to viewing/listening to the rest of my small DVD collection including the Right Stuff, Braveheart, Matrix, The Patriot and a few others.

    Any recommendations and suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated. I'm sure that I will have plenty of questions and need plenty of guidance. I look to provide any usefull information I can.

    Here's the gear:

    - 2001 Pioneer VSX -D810S A/V Receiver

    - 1988 Mitusbishi (Model CS2657R) 26 inch with s-vid and multiple inputs.

    - 2000 Panasonic DVD CV50 - 5-disc DVD/CD player.

    - 2001 Cerwin Vega AVS-632 Speaker system with Subwoofer

    Look foward to reading lots of helpful posts and putting up a few myself.

    Ryan!

    Looks like you have a great system! I can't think of anything you need to do differently.
    Just sit back and enjoy it !!

    Thanks for the comments Alf.

    I took a look at your Onormodome setup.

    Pretty cool.

    We actually have the same furniture (coffee table and end tables).

    I was trying to look... but couldn't find where you put your surrounds.

    My HT is setup in our finished room over the garage, but I'd like to set up an HT in our main TV room which makes the surrounds placements a lil tricky.

    Hey Ryan,
    When you click on the PICTURES link on my website, you'll find the pictures of the surrounds (behind and above the sofa) using the "next" button.
    Just in case, here's the link to them:

    I saw that picture. I just didn't (and still don't) make out the surrounds. Do you have them on stands?

    My problem is that in our main TV room the TV is in a corner and the sofa goes along the opposite wall with the loveseat perpindicular to that with it's back slightly to the TV.

    Since the sofa isn't lined up evenly with the TV, I

    'm not sure that putting surrounds at each end would sound right. I'd expect a slight mismatch (timing) on the right side, since the right surround and front will be so close and the left surround and front will be at near opposite sides of the room.

    Oh well. I was just wondering if you had placed them in some inconspicuous place that might help me solve my placement problem.

    Hey Ryan,

    I guess I'm used to seeing them, but I guess I can see how hard it is to find them in the pic...

    Look above the sofa, and they are attached to the white beam just below the catwalk rails...the speakers are white and do blend in in the pic.

    Sorry bout that...
