How things used to be. Just running plain old stereo now with what were the rear speakers, my DM303s.






Not like that any more, most of that gear's in the studio. The front speakers are now rear speakers...

Most HD TV's have at least one DVI, VGA (or HDMI) port, and, if not, there are adapters for S-video or even, God forbid, composite video.

Well, we did have that "Post Your Penis Next To a Yardstick" thread, but it was deleted for some reason, so we're stuck with this sort of stuff.

I am currently camera-less, so these are the only old, small, crappy pictures of my setup. I'm just using an unfinished room in the basement with a projector and surround sound. The screen is 8 feet wide.

Well, the tall Chihuly is glued down, as are the Blomdahls on stands and the Littleton. The other works are pretty stable... but I don't crank up my bass too high to begin with. Living in a condo means you have to respect your neighbors and you can't make their ceilings vibrate too much.

The wiring was installed professionally, as was the rack for the AV equipment. All the rest of that is me.

Highly unlikely.

In fact, there's no chance at all (just to prevent you from pulling a Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber on me...).
