Can a new guy make a suggestion also??

How about "best cable management" gallery? I haven't seen all setups here, but I think ldgibson76 is a very strong candidate.

Great idea for a thread Jason and I pretty much agree with your choices as well. I'm off to work in a bit, but I'll try to provide you with my choices later today.

How about 'most upgrades/changes for 2009'. I know 2 people in strong contention for that.

I'll fill this out later. I was up till 4:30am (getting my pre-birthday swerve on ). Then had to drive to Des Moines and back to my place at 8 this morning.

Yeah definitely NOT YOU!

Jason,

Very good thread! This should be done at the end of 2010 or early 2011 like the Oscars of Bluray.com

Believe it or not, I could almost be in that classification for 2009/2010 with the addition of Teres Audio Certus 450 Turntable, Teres Audio Illius Tonearm, a 5th upgraded Aragon Palladium 1K monoblock amp, upgraded ARC LS10 line stage preamp, 2nd upgraded Exact Power EP15A, 7 TimePortal speakers, all new cabling (for ICs, Coax, speaker cables, and at least 7 new power cords, long HDMI), a lot of tweaks, the 2 Isolation Transformers, the 2nd Epik Conquest, the 2 subtraps, the new Adona 5' 5 tier rack, the new Media rack, the home theater seating, the totally built and wired from the ground up listening room/home theater, etc.

You and Brent were the ones I was thinking of. I suppose I could be taken into consideration if people want to go there I won't object any. Nap time. Then movie time.

How about most improved HT? Think of where someone's HT was at the beginning of the year and where it is now.........GeologyNut and Todd come to mind.....

Or how about a "rookie of the year" of "best newcomer" award?
