    Hello all...
    Got my pics added to the theaters section of this site, until I find the time to build myself a site. Here's the link: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/bbs/...ent/28850.html
    It's a small, modest setup in a small midwest apartment/townhome. Nothing too special, but I think it's pretty nice for the money I'd spent...
    I'd love to hear any comments...
    Thanks!
    Jeff

    Great HT rig Jeff [​IMG]
    A few suggestions if I may. Have you tried to center things up a bit. Move the center down lower and place it directly over the TV and maybe even angle it down a bit with some rubber door stops so it is firing at your sweet spot? Also, maybe you could swap the component rack and left main, to create an equal distance between the mains and TV. I'd suggest moving the right main out farther, but it looks as though you cannot due to access to the stairs.

    Lookin' good, Jeff! Cool cat too!
    I also have to agree with Ron P. I had a setup similar to yours in terms of where I was putting my center channel, which sounded all right, but when I moved it down closer to the same level as the TV screen, it made a world of difference! The sound imaging was much smoother, such as in scenes where the sounds whirl around in circles through each speaker.
    I made a neat "temporary" shelf that holds the center right under the TV screen. I just snap it into place when I want to fire up a movie.

    Cool. I like your idea of using shelves for the surrounds. Is this your cat favorite hangout spot?
