    Notice how my wires have disappeared. [​IMG]
    I built a 5 foot wall and painted it black for the purpose of hiding all of the exposed cables ETC..The wall fits nicely between the Audio Rack and the Entertainment unit.It also acts as a support to reinforce the Audio rack.
    I placed my new DVD plaque that I ordered from ShowOff Displays onto the top part of the wall and also tacked on my old 'Now Playing' DVD holder too.
    A small 13" TV was installed into a shelf on the Entertainment unit and I have the ExpressVu Satelite running through it for the local programming to play in the background.
    The Tower of Power stands at an official 6'3" tall. The Parasound HCA-3500, my newest addition sits at the top of the Tower with the Parasound HCA-2205 placed in the first shelf.

    Why the two Pardigms are next to each other?
    Is this a new "set up" or they just "posing" for the photo?

    Thanks Guys!.
    Lewis,,The Studio 60's and 100's are both at the front of the set-up. The 60's used to be at the rear but with the addition of an aquarium at the back of the room. I had to change to wall mounted Studio ADP,s. I switch between the 100's and 60's for music and HT..However since I picked up the HCA 3500 I have only been using the 100's. Prior I did not have enough power to use the 100's for music. The 60's came to life in tht position. Different story now.
    BTW,,The Parasounds are outstanding amps as you already know. [​IMG]
    Brett,,All my components are in use except for an old receiver at the very bottom of the rack and a unneeded Silver Millenium DTS decoder. The bottom shelf is the area I have for expansion.
    There are also 2 Satelite receivers on top of the RPTV.
    Lou,,I have the system calibrated to reference and listen to between -12 to -16 depending on the DVD.
    No matter what is playing all channels hold their own and never run out of juice or let down. The dynamics are unreal at these levels...
    With my previous receiver the NAD t770 I used to listen to reference levels yet it never came close to what I experience now listening at levels considerably less below reference..Strange!
    This set-up is loud yet I never experience listening fatigue or ringing ears..Very 'Airy' is how I would explain it .
    Brent,,I spend all my time making money..
    I wish I had more time to enjoy my investements. [​IMG]
    We watch one movie per week and sometimes can watch two.
    Looking forward to winter though.
    Tyler,,It's a secret. [​IMG]
