    Trevor,
    Very nice indeed. What were you expecting if you don't mind my asking? Just curious if you're not fully happy with it.

    Great looking plaque Trevor. I may have to check into one myself.
    One question about your system if I may. I know you're bi-amping your speakers with the Parasound 5 channel amp. I'm thinking of bi-amping my Revel F-30s with my Rotel 1095 5 channel amp. Are you using a custom length CatCable Y cable to run to your Parasound? I can use a Y-adapter and split the left signal and right signal to two channels each for the F-30s. Did you use a custom 1 meter for each multi channel hookup? Or just a Y adapter? I hope I'm clear on the connection question.

    That plaque looks great! Is it wall-mountable?

    Gary,,When I placed the order I thought the plaque was a wall mountable type. Not really sure why, but maybe the picture was dark at the time and I figured it was on a wall. Anyways this actually works better for me as I found a nice place to display it.
    Scott,,This one can not be mounted on a wall. As you notice it is lit. The base that the acrylic sign fits into has a nice flouresent type light in it. The base holds everything into place and has an on/off switch.
    Darrel,,Yes I actually have two custom made Y-Silvercat splitters from CatCables.com. These were the first two ever made and Doug has now put them up on the CatCables webpage as a regular order item. I then use four half meter length Silvercats to run from the splitters to the Denon. I was able to get away with the half meter length since the Parasound and Denon are located fairly close together.

    Trevor, 2 things...
    First, I love what you did with the SVS Subs. That looks really cool and you've got to make people wonder why you spent so much on subs. BTW, you set-up really kicks a**.
    Second, what's the deal with the TV? I've just got to ask what your reason is for not having a wide screen tv in place of the 4:3? I don't know, maybe I'm crazy... But, that was the first thing that poped into my head!!!

    Trevor:
    Nice sign.....you had mentioned about wall mounting. On the same post about my sign at AVS forum we discussed the fact it couldn't be wall mounted...sorry I didn't relay that info here.
    Mike does a terrific job. You can see by the final product he takes pride in his work. Here's a link to his site....
    http://www.mobileimage.com/view.asp?CatID=33
    I found the same/simlar signs at another site for 3x the cost....one could say they are a terrific value relative to the market place.
    Ron
    PS: I don't know Mike, except for being a first time customer last month. I tell who will ever listen to me about business owners like Mike, Brad at Bettercables and Tom&Ron at SVsubwoofers; because they take pride in their work, charge a fair price, provide excellent service and create a top notch product. We need more business owners like these folks in the market place....(stepping off soapbox and now say goodbye Ron)
    Goodbye Ron

    Trevor,
    Very nice addition to the room. But, if you keep getting more stuff for your home theater room its going to have its own gravity with all that mass your accumulating. [​IMG]

    If you use the search engine ("THX") on Mike's site, you'll find the THX sign. Living in SA, TX you should get a great turn around (Mike's in Plano).

    John..The 4:3 set is necessary for DSS which is on 24/7 here.
    Our first 16:9 venture will be a FPTV with a screen that comes down over the Toshiba for movie watching.
    Thanks to Ron for pointing us in the direction of MobileImage.com. I orderd the plaque ASAP when Ron first made mention of it after he placed his order with Mike.
    I think I received the last sign though as I do not see it on the webpage any longer.
    Maybe Mike can explain this.
    Thanks.
