Default Understood

The evolution of a Home Thater Set up. Just saw the 4 years ago pic. That is a pretty slick upgrade.My systemeven though HD'ed, 360'ed, 5.1'ed out is very dated.

Holding off on the Theater upgrade due to the age and tolerance of my neighbors. Newer tube to come once I sell me old one and get a "bonus". If that will happen. Times are hard but tech. will still prosper.


Sadly couldn't post a pic of my chrappy but lovin' it system

Mine is also wife-friendly.



What you see is a Sony KDL-32S300 TV with an aging Mac Mini connected. The Mac Mini is stacked on top of an Iomega 320GB MiniMax harddrive and connected to a Bose Companion 5 speaker set.

Under the TV you see the digital TV decoder from Get. It's also connected to the Bose Companion 5.

You guys are lucky. Apparently even my 26" TV gives my girlfriend headaches.

This is my setup for larger gatherings...parties & football. 50" Samsung:




For movies & video games I have a theater room downstairs. A little cozier with some decent surround sound. When I'm finally done decorating I intend to have quite a few more wallscrolls That's a 51" Sony.





I have a very bachelor friendly setup
