I think you guys got ripped off big time. Mine is 2.4GHz, we got one Main and 2 extras with chargers in the pack for $90 at Sam's Club. ($89.99) and they came with head sets and belt clips.

Which sharp lcd is that? Looks really nice and clean the way you have it installed. How much did you give for it if you don't mind me asking? Thanks, Joe

I almost put this in my post, but wasn't 100% sure of the rules abotu quoting prices etc. A friend of mine got this recently, but like I said, mine is maybe two years old now. Good phone though!

What do you do?

I'm a software developer by day and I own my own professional home theater consulting/installation firm by night... started setting up peoples home stereos ad tvs in high school and it kinda ballooned from there. at this point it's not really worth it to do a buildout for anything under $10,000 (component-wise of course)

my new toy, Logitech Harmony 880 remote w/ color screen, turned 6 archaic remotes into one incredibly simple interface

I'm just wondering if you can use actually use the harmony remote with the Dell monitor?

yes and no... you can't use it with the 2005fpw directly (since there is no IR receiver on it and it's just a monitor without a tuner anyway)... but it works with most Media Center PC IR receivers as far as i can tell...

i'd get a htpc to slap into my theater, but with the 2 PVR's (the tivo and the digital cable box) and the modded xbox (with XBox Media Center) i just don't think i'd ever use it

like your setup srgt.strider. I like the speakers you have setting next to the big screen you have what kinds are those?

nice, but man, I tell, don't shop at Sam's, yil man i tell you these people mess you around. buy anything defective from them its a hassle to return anything. and they really need to be careful on where they put their crap becuase I had to dig around to find the phone system because they were in a cardboard stand that looks like if you look at it hard enough it will break, that explains why we had to return ours and get a replacement set of phones because the one we had must have been dropped. bottom line Sam has cheap stuff but the place sucks and risky buys.

back to the subject.

They're Definitive Technology BP2006's... they stand about 3.5, maybe 4 feet tall... bipolar array speakers (drivers on the front and the back) with four 6" mids and two 2" tweeters per speaker as well as a powered 12" 250watt sub in each... originally they retailled for $1000 a piece, but if you can find em you can prolly snatch up a pair for just under $1k

Well, first off, I always make my own desk, just like the freedom of space I guess. After moving in I go to Home Depot and from 20-25 bux I can make a nice 8'x4' desk, or bigger. Plus I make them cut it to the shape of the room, which helped in some places. I lived in 4 country and moved about 32 times, so esthetics are something I forgot about long long time ago. From reading this thread in the last couple of months I'm prepared to get flak for it :D

So here we go, this is my living room, although I'd rarely call it "living"
01_livingroom.jpg

Two monitors right now, I'm hoping I can get some more 22'' or bigger for cheap, CRT of course, I never had space issues.
02_monitors.jpg

Random machines, specs are really gimpy, the best is like a FX-53 garbage in the Antec case in the middle.
03_machines.jpg

Now, I know some of you really like wiremanagement, so here is my version of it :eek:
04_wirelove.jpg

Some of my DVDs
06_dvd.jpg

Since I moved to this place my games are all over the place, most of them are in those Dell boxes which you can barely see in the DVD picture, but this is what they looked like about 2 years ago, obviously, I got some more since then.

What can I say, I never liked pirating games, so I started buying my first ones in 1994 or so. Maybe even earlier, I can't remember which was the first. I think I have close to 400 boxes or so.

And that's pretty much where I live right now, renting a basement in a house, that's about half the living room, there is a bedroom with a queen size bed and that's about it. All I do is play games and work, people annoy me nowadays, so it's rare that friends can get me outta the house.

AndyZaft, did you call an FX-53 garbage? :eek:

Heh, maybe that was a bit rough :cool: But I assume everybody here has like 2 boxes with dual core CPUs in them by now, I'm always behind in times, the day I got my FX-53, the FX-55 was released, that was like the one time when I was almost up to date with my hardware :D

Well, i bet you got a good price for the FX-53 vs a FX-55.

I just came form a P3 800Mhz computer. Anyone who says a AMD FX-53 is .... something to be joked at.... is eaither rich, or......................... well, rich. ^_^ (j/k)

Is that big brown thing under your table a foot rest? I like it.
