Hi all! My name is Kevin and although I've been an audio fan for many years, I'm a relative newbie to the whole world of home theater. I look forward to getting to know a number of you good people and hope I can make a decent contribution once in a while!

My first stab at home theatre debuted last February (Super Bowl sunday!) as I had completed a room transformation from generic upstairs family room to a 'Guy's Cave' to be used mainly by me & my three sons (okay, my wife is also allowed entrance at times!) for movie viewing, game playing and music.
I crafted the room from some existing components (my old receiver, five 'older' speakers, plus some new ones— samsung 65" plasma, Toshiba HDDVD player; some new furniture; black-out shades, rug. Here's a shot on the day of it's debut:

Since the 'debut' I've since upgraded both the entry-level pioneer receiver and H100 subwoofer to a Marantz SR8100 and SVS Pc12-NSD, respectively. The speakers (my old jbls) are next on the upgrade list.

Glad I found this place!

Welcome to the forum...:wave:

Good luck with your project....I'm assuming JBL's will be replaced by SVS speakers to complement the SVS Sub, Right???:whistling:

The SVS speakers are at the top of my list. I've checked out the new towers (STS) and the scs/sbs systems. Hard to beat the $$/value bang-for-the-buck with these speakers. I'm also awaiting to see what type of new matching center speaker Swan/HiFi is coming out with to match their D2.1se standmounters as well.

Thank you everyone for the nice welcome!
