Very nice! =D>

Your little girl gives her smile of approval I see.....
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

One more pic. I'm a little nuts about neat wiring......

Video to TV via HDMI. BluRay HDMI, DVD and Escient Component/TOSLink converted to HDMI by receiver.

Turn on/off staged via Monster Power Center

Signal and power cables routed at opposite ends of the rack.

That is a beautiful system TubroJim. I also like the in-wall rack, apparently it must pull out to access the back or > from the other side of the wall. That is a cute picture of the little girl, but ummm. I noticed how she is turning her head back and forth > you know, like a person who has damaged hearing? She can't stand that close to the Speaker man!!! LOL! just kidding. Again, very nice!!

Very nice setup, "TurboJim". I really like how you've mounted the TV and have the front speaker set up.

As for you rack and wiring, THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT!!! Very clean, tidy, and practical. I bet it sounds great.
