    Don,

    Nice system. I am running the Aerius i for my primaries.

    What size is your HT room?

    To Jens,

    Your HT is very impressive. What was the time frame for the entire project?

    if your talking about the parts on the martin logans, those are lights that light up really dim. Each martin logan has one. The reason I did that is for very dim lighting around the room. It really looks cool. The room is actually really small. It is 15' wide by 20' wide.

    A 15' x 20' is not really small. The setup looks pretty good.

    Donald,

    Very nice equipment.

    One small observation: I notice that you are storing your DVD's horizontally (with stacks up to ~17 titles high). Going back to my LD and LP days I remember that it was suggested never to store the media horizontally, especially in a stack more than 12 platters high since this could damage them over the long haul.

    Granted, DVD cases are generally (but not always) more rigid than LD or LP sleeves, so maybe some of this is no longer applicable. However, I suspect it might still be. Additionally, it can generally be a pain when you want that bottom title from the stack, expecially if you keep them in any particular order.

    I realize that you probably stack your DVD's this way because it makes the best use of your available shelf space, but might I suggest that you think about storing the discs vertically (like books) and then reclaiming the space above the DVD's on each shelf with a small additional shelf or something similar? It looks as though there would still be room for about a 3-4 DVD high stack above each row of DVDs and stacks that high would not be as much as a problem. Of course, if your shelves are movable (like mine are) then this becomes a much simpler alteration.

    Just a thought from my perspective.

    Take care and enjoy your HT.
