It's alive!!!

Hello everybody!

After several months of planning and then chasing the right products (within my budget), I am really happy with my HT.

Yes, next item to tackle is to upgrade the screen. But, keep in mind that what I have now is a Samsung 51" Plasma 3D TV purchased less that a year ago. So, my new projector and fixed screen will have to wait until 2013.

Meanwhile, I will enjoy my big sound with tiny screen............

Very clean looking setup. Not sure I would categorize 51" display as small but in scale to the sound you have maybe so. I bet those dual PB13's pressurize that room something fierce!

Yeah, I don't think the 51" is small, but when you compare it against the rest of my setup it seems is out of scale. Oh well, hopefully in the near future a PJ will fix that......;o)

Yes, the Ultras are doing a great job in my room. I watched Flight of the Phoenix last night (plane crash scene) and oh boy.....it was amazing!

Oh yeah, that scene is amazing......

I recently moved my couch like a foot and then I re-calibrated my system. So, in you honor, I will watch that scene one more time........
