I'm in the process of building a new HT and I trying to decide where to put the equipment. Most advice it to lock it in a closet or some other unseen place. But I'm one of those people that likes to easily see how far into the movie I am or how much is left. Or what time it is, what channel is on or how loud I have the receiver set to. Am I strange and is this totally crazy? Or am I at least a part of a quiet minority just keeping our mouths shut? Please help me understand where I stand and post you comments.
