    I have updated pictures on webshots of the new TV and equipment. I have not updated my website, and am still pondering whether do so or just get rid of it. In the meanwhile, I have been looking at digital cameras, and borrowed a friend's Olympus. I tried to play around with the cameras settings, but I think I may have to face facts, I am just not a very good photographer!!
    Anyways...check it out:
    http://community.webshots.com/user/heebz6020
    The changes:
    Got rid of the huge entertainment center, and got a RPTV.
    - carpeting in the living room
    - new couch, recliner, coffee table, and decorative chair (nobody sits in it)
    - a subwoofer, a velodyne CT-120
    - sold my Pioneer 525, got a Panasonic RP56
    - got a audio rack
    - new window treatments with total light blocking ability
    If you want to see what it looked like before the webshots pictures, click on the link:

    Screens are tricky to get well. You have to angle the camera to the screen in such a way that the flash does not bounce right back into the camera lens. Anyway, the pics are good for a first try.

    Your pics look good to me. Besides, a home theater needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated [​IMG]. Great setup.

    That vase is prety heavy, although The Haunting moved it about 7 inches or so.
    The pictures turned out too dark, you can't make out the detail that great, and also doesn't show the warmth of the room. It's a great room to watch movies in...very plush carpeting, huge oversized couch, "crushed" leather recliner, tons of throw pillows. I wish that the photos would have conveyed this. Some of the pictures of HT set-ups I've see on this site do in fact convey this very well.
    Anyways, thanks for the comments.
    Matt

    Nicely done Matt, good job.
    Have you tried slightly toe'ing in your front speakers? Just a suggestion.

    Excellent setup. It's nice to see paradigm systems out there. I have a pair of titans for music and I love them. Best speaker on the market for that price.
