    Here's something I've wanted to do for about 2 years now...post pics of my HT! [​IMG]
    Go here: http://photos.yahoo.com/local420us And click on the Home Theater album.
    The Fronts are JBL S310s, the Center is an AR2C center channel, and the rears are JBL S38s. The Equipment rack is an old server rack that I cut 3' out of to make it a more manageable 5' high. The Receiver is a Pioneer Elite 26-TX that I've owned for the last 2 years or so.
    Hope you like!

    Well Bruce, in my new house, the room designated for the theater was shaped oddly. Having 2 couches made it necessary for us to put one behind and boost it up.
    It's actually very cool, and we were able to avoid the extremely wide soundstage like at my former place of residence, where the couches were placed end-to-end, making a 20' wide soundstage.

    Welcome.
    I remember when I finally took pics too. Anyway, the first thing I noticed was the interesting orientation of the surround speakers. How is the rear soundfield with the speakers like that?

    It works Neil!
    With the odd angle that my seating is at(an SAF issue-She wanted visitors to be able to see the monolith fireplace behind the back row of seating), it's the only way to do it. THe rear row is obviously covered, and the front seats also get a goodly amount of balanced surround sound.
    DOn't know how it worked out so well, but it did

    Sam,
    I said it in the other post and I will say it again here.
    Your setup looks fantastic. If those S38's sound as good
    as they look then they must be spectacular.. And this is
    comming from a guy who is not real fond of "wood" [​IMG]
    Very nice setup

    Hello.
    How do you like having the platform in the rear for the sofa back there? Did you build it yourself? Have plans? I'm thinking of doing something similar in my house (I have been "thinking" about doing it for years).

    Hey Phillip!
    I really do like having the platform under the back row of seating. I built it myself, and it's so easy you don't really need plans.
    It's constructed of 2"x12" around the sides and 3/4" Plywood for the top, with 2 2"x12" braces spaced out evenly on the underside.
    There were 3 of us building it, and it took about 3 hours to build. It's not terribly elegant, but it works extremely well.
    Sam
