USA This is my "SERENITY"

I started this whole project a little over a year ago.


I had a Philips 5.1 HTIB I was rockin for a long time...
One day I was over at a buddies place and he had picked up a new receiver and told me I was do for an upgrade! LOL...
So as frugal as I am I started hittin up Craigslist on the daily... (So yeah, everything you see has been someone elses handmedowns)
I've bought and sold a bunch of stuff trying to find something I was happy with. I even had 5 subs in there at one time! LOL ALL MISMATCHED OF COURSE, anyways this is where I'm at now, for now...prolly gonna stay this way for awhile though, I'm happy with it...

[Show spoiler]after awhile, the urge to have some more gear in my bedroom started weighing heavy.....

Sooooo.....


Wharfedale Diamond 9.6 / 9.1 towers & surrounds
Mission 70c2 center
Sound Dynamics ASUB-15



And in my new place......
[Show spoiler]



....and how it looks today in my new place. https://www.blu-ray.com/community/ga...&folderid=8460

Welcome to the HT galleries Billy13

You can get an account at an image hosting site like Photobucket so you can post images right into your posts. Once you put your pictures there then all you have to do is copy & paste the [IMG] tag into your post





BTW ~ Great looking HT you have

Howdy Sir!!!

How is it going this evening?

In your first post, here is an edit idea for ya.

The link you posted for your pic, I see for some reason the link has two http. Remove the very first one. What I see is "http:// http://", and it should only look like "http://"

After you remove that, we should see the pic and not a red X

Don't worry about it, you're doing fine from what I can see. You're pretty good with that darn phone.

I'm not new to HT or WWW, but you seem to do much better then I do with a phone using forums.

I'm am older then you

This is a great site, so you will get great advice from the people here.

...seems to be, however looking through the comments people leave in galleries, some people are EXTREMELY BIASED & RATHER RUDE in their "constructive" criticism.
Fortunately, i haven't came across any directed at me, or my set-up. I sometimes have a hard time holding back LOL

That is so true....

They are really ruff in the Community gallery area. It has been threads about the arguments and disputes with ratings and whatnots. I've was part of that subject at one or two times.

I once gave a rating of 7 or 8, and the guy wrote me a 2 page PM, asking me to change it to a 10. It turned into an argument, and he ended up deleting this gallery and haven't been back since.

Other then the gallery, the rest of the site is great and helpful.

Yes, I do my best to be constructive when I suggest, and I have seen people do otherwise.

Nice setup you have Billy. I enjoyed looking through your gallery.

Speaking of the armoire....that is a nice looking piece of furniture.

Since someone is going to suggest it anyway, let me say that perhaps a Projector setup would make for a nice addition. You could leave the TV in the armoire and use it for general TV watching, and then drop down the screen for an immersive movie experience. Food for thought, perhaps?
