Re: Newbie's system

The rack is actually from Walmart. It was one of their display models and they happened to be selling it. Picked it up for $30 I believe. Solid wood, things a beast. My HT setup is jammed in there too, the Pioneer Elite wouldn't fit and is sitting on top.

Tom - might be stuck on that C-4000 now, there goes the all black Carver color theme...

A good looking system is nice to have, a good sounding system is more desirable.
