This is my current setup in my living room.  All of the electronics were purchased while I was in college except for the component video selector.  I plan on moving everything here except for a game console or two into my bedroom after I get married.  Then I will purchse some bigger (at least 50" DLP or LCD) and better stuff for my living room.

I designed the entertainment center and my dad built it for me (for free!).  It was built in four parts.  The top, two sides, and the bottom.  Each part is made with grooves so that it fits together perfectly.  I designed it like this so it would be easy to move.  I was going to make the top shelf smaller at first then decided to make it larger so it can store DVDs, picture frames, or larger speakers, etc...

Description:

1, 2 and 3 - Bose Cubes

4 - CD Cases

5 - Phillips DVD 724 (Progressive scan)

6 - HD Cable Box

7 - DVD Drawer - comes out all the way, stores 56 standard DVD cases

8 - Sony STR-DE597

9 - Toshiba 42H83

10 - XBOX

11 - PS2

12 - 8 input Component Video Selector w/ Optical Digital Audio & LAN

13 - Video game drawer - same as DVD Drawer

14 - GameCube

15 - Bose Bass Module - Acoustimass 6

EDIT: I use component video cables for DVD player, Cable Box, XBOX, PS2 & GameCube.  I use monster cales for DVD & Cable and use factory cables for the game consoles.  I also use Optical Digital Audio for PS2, XBOX, HD Cable Box; Coax Digital for DVD & regular cables for GameCube (which I think is the only option?).  I only use the component video switcher for the game consoles.  My Cable box has a DVI out, but it is not enabled.  I hope to get a DVD player with DVI out at some point so I can finally use the DVI input on my TV.

Thanks, it was more impressive when I was in college. I did not have the entertainment center back then though. I had all that stuff in my bedroom :laugh:

I was the only person I knew with an HDTV. My friends would come over and sit on my bedroom floor and/or bed to watch TV and play games. Those were the days :cool:

Why go to all that trouble of spending money on a screen and projector if your not going to bother to set your speakers up correctly!

uhh...ok...you gotta ignore my room/walls being messy im currently decorating...so dont shout ! :p

tv.jpg

ok in picture is Sony plasma and Playstation 2 and Sky+ - sony is HDTV and i have components from PS2 and components for XBOX [which isnt in pic]...

xbox is below the table with an xvid player [which i dont use cause i have the xbox now!] anyways...

some sweet setups here...and yeah you gotta be super careful when watching stuff on the plasma...i feel asleep last night at like 2 am and woke up at 7am and left the damn thing on...LUCKYILY i left it on a channel which had stuff on all night...had it have been another channel i just would have woke up and cried...this thing is like 3 months old and cost me ?4000...so you can tell how much i would have cried:pp

also; you cant ACTUALLY return a plasma for burn-in its states this in the owner manual and on the warranty forms...this isnt something Sony [and i would assume all] cover for cause its not a manufacturing issue or error its simply someone leaving their TV with a static image.

also the dude with the Fox Logo...that really weird man - any logo on a TV show like MTV etc has never even slightly left an image artifact on my plasma...you have a ****ty plasma maybe?://

That 43" Pioneer may have awesome colors, but its black levels suck. I prefer panasonic plasmas.

There are hardly any images of systems up and running, it would be cool to see more stuff turned on.

crazihouse: I like that you have my pics on your PC in your pics lol :D

Tiger.Girl: Once I get a new system I will post that then - unfortunately, that may be more than a year from now - ARGH! I am hoping to get at least a new TV before the new year or next Super Bowl, but I am not sure if that is going to happen. I will probably be spending a bunch of money when I move out of my apartment and into a house in June - can't wait!
