I cleaned out the room. Tore up the old carpet and laid new. Put some carpet on the wall behind the tv. This actually looks really damn nice. The pic doesn't do it justice. The black just pops.. Removed some wallpaper. Got the tv out of the box. Hooked the stereo up. I'm a long way from being done but it was nice to finally just get started. It was nice to be able to sit down there and listen for a bit.
On a side note. That isn't how the speaker set up is going to be. Even though the Plats aren't up and running, I just wanted to put them all up there cuz it looked damn cool I think. So for now, I can listen to the AL IIIs.
