hah, we are doing that in my dorm right now...5.1 surround....12" sub...Very nice projector...very well painted wall...nothing like sitting 20 feet away from the wall and killing people

I wish it was my equipment we were playing on though.

its setup in the lobby...we just close the fire doors and turn off the lights...its sick.

yeah, no worries. I'm Denon Authorized & Denon CI Certified (which means I'm the **** as far as Denon dealers go).

Marantz quality slid HARD, which is why I went to Denon. But they are both owned by the same company (D&M Holdings).

Probably can't get Elite any more--burned that bridge a while ago. They were ******** and wouldn't stand behind their product.

Anyway, if you want to go big, I carry B&K. Used to sell Parasound too (that's what I have at my own house), but their price points are just too high.

I have an elite now and I've really enjoyed it, but it's time to move that one back to the bedroom and get something newer...

Only problem I have is the volume **** has gone wonky, I'm sure I could order the part and repair it but I just don't care.

how about furniture? Any hookups there? That's where the real markup is, that and speakers but I build my own.

Yeah i carry all sorts of stuff, depending on what you're looking for. Some of it may not be worth shipping though. We also have bedroom furniture with integrated plasma lifts, and also paintings that roll up to reveal the tv behind.

If you want a Denon receiver, wait until June or so when all the new models will be out. The 07 models are getting some serious upgrades over the 06 stuff.

There are pricey, but pretty nice, good quality:

Check out the bedroom stuff. They have cabinets that go at the end of the bed. Bad ***.

Do these over fireplaces:

Did one in a formal dining room once. Worked out well. Formal for company with the tv off, but hey who doesn't eat in front of the tv when they're alone.

I'm telling!:gay:

My sis is the Assistant Art Director and her husband is the Buyer for Wireless Accessories for BBY corporate. You employees have probably seen the magazine they send out, Tag Zone or something, my sister is in charge of that.

To stay on topic, they have a Panasonic 50" plasma, I wanna say it was a little under $2000 with their discount. I'd sure like one in my dorm room.

You folks and your TVs. I have my little ol' 20" CRT flat screen (def. not flat panel....) without cable. Really revs my engine.
