Fun Stuff...

*Washington, DC area - Lorton, VA (Northern, VA)
*Age 35
*Father of a fun 2 year old and another on the way in November
*Married for 10 years
*Control system design engineer (Crestron programmer)

*Got into A/V from accounting and programming report writing software for accountants. Ended up programming Crestron systems and things have been crazy from there.

*Displays in my home:
Sampo 50" plasma w/ 106" Draper Ultimate Access V screen the drops in front of it for movie nights. Panasonic PT-L300U projector does that duty.
42" Samsung Plasma in the master bedroom.
A few RCA tube televisions around for the kids.

*Blu-Ray player, DVD or HDDVD in my home:
No Blu-ray yet, waiting on PS3
I have two main DVD players - A 400 Disc Sony 995 model and an older DVP-NS725P. One for rented movies played locally, the other setup for distribution to multple rooms.

Yamaha RX-Z1

Mains: Definitive Technology BP30
Center: Sonance Silverscreen 50
Rears: Definitive Technology BPX
Subwoofer: Velodyne HGS-18 (BOOM!)

*Game systems:

Pretty much all custom made Planet Waves stuff.

Distributed audio to 10 rooms in my home with the following sources:
XM Radio, FM Tuner, Dual Digital Music Server, TV, DVD/CD
All is Crestron controlled with 12 button keypads in most rooms, a 12" panel in the family room as well as a handheld Crestron remote.
A full sized rack in the basement remotely holds things like the A/V receiver, cable box, house audio sources, amplifiers, etc. A local rack in the family room holds the PS2, DVD player, etc.

I did the entire install and pulled all the wiring pretty much myself. All terminations were done by me, and the house is setup with a bunch of conduit for future expandability.
