    Wow, very nice. I can't believe your TV doesn't shake apart with the B4+ right beside it.

    LOL...Thanks Richard...I was experimenting with sound moving speakers to various locations..my soundstage has become very wide in this format...The B4+ used to be over near the left wall...and it actually made the screen flap[​IMG] I'm still experimenting..but I like the soundstage here...but I'm not going to hide wires until I know that is where I want it lol...Thanks for looking...and yes, the B4+ suggestion has been on my mind for umm..a few days lol..I think those that own one will agree that anywhere you put it, it will shake the TV...and that room is 4500 CF...so its not small[​IMG] Thanks again! tom

    Very nice but can I make one small suggestion......a new rack that gives breathing space on the sides for the amps. Even though you have them spaced apart etc I could definately see some breathing problems if even they're fan cooled a more open rack for them would probably be a good idea imo.

    Tommy L..

    First of all, I appreciate the thanks. Your system is very, very nice. Wish I had the room for the SVS sub you have. I bet the entire system sounds quite awesome!!!

    Jeremy makes a good point on the Sherbourn. It looks like you have about 4-6 inches on the top for clearance and on the sides, it's a tight fit. As you know, the 7/2100 has vents on the sides too.

    I just re-read the owners manual and the recommendation is a minimum of 3 inches of free space on the top and 2 inches on the sides.

    Again, great system and much luck with your new baby!!

    WOW, that's sure is "pertie". Very, very nice. Certainly I could really get into that Sub and Lexicon.

    Jeremy...you are correct in the rack scenario[​IMG] I actually have looked at a few racks..this one is the one I have my eye on:

    http://www.racksandstands.com/asp/sh...Y0028&catid=51

    It would seem to work out great..and if need be, I could add on to it. Thank you all for the input, and for all the help on this system...I would highly recommend the sherbourn for a paradigm setup.

    Doug...The sub has had me fooled almost too many times with how accurate is it on music...I can recall 10+ times I have gotten up and scrutinized the woofer to make sure it is moving..lol...its so quick, tight and accurate..I'd say I wouldn't have it any other way. [​IMG]

    Parker...yes...a projector would be great...lol...I am holding out for a while on the TV...a fine tuned Mitsu has a great picture to me...once the rpices finally come into reality, and burn-in isn't such a factor, I'll be in...plus, DTV is continuing to compress its signal....grrr...dvd's look fabulous though[​IMG] Now to tweak the Lex...where's S Fogg[​IMG] Thanks again! tom

    Tommy,

    Good luck with that combo, it should be a lot of fun!

    "Now to tweak the Lex...where's S Fogg"

    Hiding. [​IMG] What did you need to know?

    I wouldn't tweak the music surround settings too much right off the bat. You need to get a little accustomed to music in surround first. Then after you get a good grip on what you don't like and what you do like about it I could give you better suggestions on how to adjust the settings to dial it in better to your tastes.

    Very nice I sure would like to hear/feel that sub do it's job. Do you get a glare on the TV during the day time? If so I have a solution that might work for you.
