Geez it seems like I can't leave well enough alone any more :rolleyes: Beside the houseboat remodel going on, I insist on totally redoing the inside of my humble abode. The lastest project was bringing the living room into the 21st century. Don't have a before pic of the entertainment cabinet that was built into this wall, but sufice it to say, all that would fit was a 27" TV . Time to go BIG SCREEN! Well as big as I can fit in this space. :D

Did you bought the TV yet?
Could change the design if you're going flat TV...(Flat TV like in big bucks not like the poor me who bought a flat screen only...)
And what's behind that door that you are blocking?

Now just imaging this with a 42-50" Plasma sitting on the top :D Still have decide between paint or stain and still need to set a top, but you get the idea. Not bad for two days work eh???

And what's behind that door that you are blocking? That door is actually access to rear of the components. Makes it real easy to hook things up.

Looks good Bob...!! :eek: BUt sounds about right. You getting granite in that quote??? They wanted over $1,000 judt for two bath cabinets. I think I built them for around $300 and they are solid wood and 3/4" boxes...not the press board and 1/2 crap I've found in even some higher priced cabinets. :rolleyes:

Cables make a noticeable difference for sure. My wife said I was crazy for spending $150 on a 14" digital cable but it is the main cable that sends all of the info. to the receiver.
Speaker cables are important too, good speaker cable can run $10-$20 per foot.
I wouldn't hold back on the video cable for that plasma either.
When you're ready for towers be sure to check these out.
The best all around speaker for the money IMO.

These are the super towers that I have. Each speaker has a 1,000 watt powered sub. My system really helps get us through the dog days of winter!

These will get the job done.
http://www.impactacoustics.com/product_list.asp?cat%5Fid=601
Audio cable: This is what I use, 8VS and 4VS Tri-wired.
http://www.kimber.com/Products/LoudSpeakerCables/8VS/8VS.aspx
Interconnects: PBJ all the way!
http://www.kimber.com/Products/Interconnects/PBJ/PBJ.aspx
Digital cable: The D60 is what I use and I believe it is the best for the money. I can't see paying more than $160 for a .5 meter cable.
http://www.kimber.com/Products/DigitalCables/D-60/D-60.aspx

All of these eccept the Trifocals use RCA connectors Leroy!

Hope that answered some of your questions from voicemail Mag.
