From this picture you can see 3 sets of subs under my desk. Ozaki 2.1's, Yamaha 2.1's and Logitech 5.1 x540. I use the Yamaha's on my desk for fronts when using my monitor. The
Ozaki 2.1's are side speakers in both my set-ups.



In this pic, you can see my projector, screen and the fronts/centre for the X540's. I use the fronts as my rears when using my monitor.


In this pic, I am standing where my boys toy car was in the other one^^^. In the ceiling, are the rears for the X540's and the front of my projector.


I'd tried to fit everything in.


When my buddies come over I bring rig 2 down and plug it into the projector for some on-line action...:toast:

Got a new (used) entertainment center today. I think it looks a lot better than my old one. Pro's are that it is slimmer, looks better, and has more storage space. The con is that I can't fit my Denon receiver in any of the compartments and there's no space for the box speakers, so I'm stuck with the TV speakers for a while.

I think it looks pretty good -I hope you can find a way to use your receiver and speakers with your setup.

Here's what I use now while living here in Japan:



A 32" flat panel is also hooked up to my computer but I don't use it much.

The headphone bug has really got me lately. I think I'll sell off most of my speakers and get some more cans and amps to listen to with the money I get.

I've got a question. When hooking up a PC to a receiver via the coaxial RCA (orange), can you use a single regular RCA (red, white, yellow) in place of an orange one? Or, does it have to be an actual single coax. RCA with orange on both ends?

i can be regular rca, techies will argue that you lose sound quality, but you would have to be an extreme audiophile or a dog to notice any difference

The only difference is the color of the plastic on the connector.
