Another vote for the Playstation 3. Blu-ray, DVD's, CD's, SACD's, streaming media, surfing the Net and watching Cranky Geeks on the big screen. I think I read somewhere that you can even play games on it.

My panasonic 1080p projector. It is a sweet piece of gear. I never imagined that projectors could have come as far as they have as fast as they have and at the price they are not at. If you are looking for a home theater projector, there is not a better projector for the money. IMO
Could I invite you to this thread I started recently? http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...how-judge.html Although I share your enthousiasm with this projector, I am struggling with a fan noise issue that I would like to get your opinion on. Thanks.

My Outlaw 7500 multichannel amplfier and my Panasonic G-series 50in Plasma (calibrated). Very happy of both.

Once I replaced the cooling fan the EP4000 has exceeded my expectations. Never gets close to clipping and awesomely clean sub output.

Did it get close to clipping with the stock fan in place?

For me it has to be Logitech Squeezebox Transporter. There is no other device like it. With iOS integration, an app infrastructure and plugin support there are no limits. I do room correction, and with IR blaster integration is really easy. You can integrate with RS-232, download an app for upcoming services and listen to pandora or any radio station in the world. It has a robust music collection management system. One of the best music eco-system devices out there...

My second PC12+ made by far the most difference of any other upgrade. Bass is so smooth and much more even now.

SVS PB13 Ultra and SB13+ dual sub combined and placed diagonally opposite. The twin combination of mid and low bass changed my view on sealed and ported sub combination. It has the best of both worlds, movies can be felt rather than heard
