I'm not sure where to post this, so I guess I'll try here. We had a good-sized quake last night, 5.2 on the Richter. We live very close to the epicenter, and our house shook violently, but only for a brief time. Apart from pictures and vases falling, we came out OK; just a lot of jangled nerves. Nevertheless, our son's high school graduation photo (framed, of course) tipped off the fireplace mantel and fell on one of my B&W CDM1SE's that I use for HT mains. Small nick, ouch! My son's DVD rack, however, didn't fare too well. It tipped. He has a project now for the rest of the week: Putting those DVDs back in place and in alphbetical order. I sure am glad I decided to put shot in my HT stands. I'm sure the added weight prevented a toppling speaker or two. Everyone might want to check their HTs to see if there are heavy objects which could fall and damage expensive equipment. After all, earthquakes aren't a California exclusive anymore.
