    Well I don't have a camera, but my home entertainmanet setup is also my PC with an ATI AIW, SB Live!, 5.1 speakers, DVD drive, CD-RW, blah, blah, more boring computer specs, but you get the idea.[​IMG]


    Ideally I would have a computer be just a seperate component in a setup, but I have little ca$h and little space soooooooo................

    Too boring for a picture...

    Well I just set up a new home theater and I did it for a little bit of nothing...

    27" Tru-Flat Sylvania TV...picked up at Sears for $114.00...No kidding...$114.00! It was a return, but still had the stickers on the screen...works great!

    Toshiba DVD player for $99.00

    Older 4Head Hi-Fi VCR I picked up at Sears a few years back...still works nice....I think I paid about $100.00 at the time.

    I have a real small house with a small living room so for sound I run everything through a pair of $99.00 Bose MediaMate speakers. Not surround sound, but the clarity is excellent, much better then TV speakers.

    So let me see here...using the Calculator App.

    A new home theater for $412.00

    Now what else can you buy for $412.00?
    An eMachine?

    Here's mine....

    Sony 28" WEGA Flat screen television, Pioneer DVD player (with Multi-mod, will play just about anything from anywhere in the world), Xbox, PS2 (hidden away in the bottom right hand draw, would have done the same with the Xbox but it wouldn't fit!). Also a Sony Hi-fi not shown in the picture.
    Hope at the end of this month to put my order in to replace the 28" Sony with the same Pioneer 43" plasma as W-_-W has, can't wait! I just need to get paid!!!!!

    (excuse the skanky walls, in the process of decorating)

    Bose VCS-10 center channel speaker

    Re: Hey

    I don't know really because you're probably going to have to find someone older like me to buy it. I'm not sure anyone appreciates rack-mounted audio equipment anymore.
