Nice Crazy . Your posts late last night got me thinking about wires. Then while cleaning today I found a hole drilled in the floor. That 3/8" hole led me to drill a couple more holes in the floor and run everything through my basement. Then while I had my entertainment center pulled out, I noticed a few more holes for wire cut in the back. So I reran all the wiring into my entertainment center. 4 hrs later and you can't see a single wire, but their ain't much to show for it

You've also got me looking VERY hard at the UPA-7. Any review you can give me on SQ vs. what your receiver offered?

Looks good, congrats!

How does it sound with the towers behind the couch? It seems like you would be better off with them more on the sides. In a 7.1 setup the sides should be at 90 degrees. The way you have it is not really how 7.1 is suppose to be.


You have it allmost like a 7.1 "rear surround", is that what you were after?

I'd hate to open that door and knock that speaker off the wall. That looks badly placed.

I don't have that much room in my condo to be doing what those pic's are showing ! I will be moving them around to find where they sound best ! I Just watched TDK & the begining of TOP GUN AT -15 dbl & they sounded darn good where they are at !!

I don't worry about the speaker because there is A large triangle shape piece of wood I made that will only allow the door to open so far !!

True audiophiles care about sound quality and do not pay attention to wire management. That is for amateurs.

I am going to get a lot of hate mail over this. Please direct them to crazyBlue.

That is the way most of us look at it. We just try to avoid Ground Loops.
