    I just finished setting up my HT in my new entertainment center. No more milk crates for a TV stand or a cheap cabinet for my components. After doing a major upgrade to my system over the past 4 months and going over budget on that (so my wife said, the WAF is VERY LOW), I picked this up at a used furniture store for $150.00. I just wanted to share my enjoyment with all of you who, over the past 6 months have provided wonderful insight and information throughout this upgrading process. I think I am done for this year....but who knows when you will get a 'wild hair'!
    Thanks for all the informative posts,
    Mike

    Ver nice! Now, can you pull your speakers forward just a bit more? If so, it should really improve your soundstage.

    Enjoy.

    Mike, that is a really clean looking setup. Well done! When the wife gives you a hard time about your hobby, just mention a few other hobbies that you COULD be interested in. Tell her about your lifelong dream to restore a vintage car, or buy a boat and take up fishing. Each of these can EASILY cost more than a home theater setup, and keep you away from home more.[​IMG]

    Looks like a helluva deal for $150. Unfortunately, I don't see how you can fit a new 40-60" TV in it [​IMG]

    I am sure I could talk her into the big screen TV and a new entertainment center if I could convince her that the Tai-Bo videos would be more effective![​IMG]
