did you have your sub refinished, btw? looks like it matches those b&ws perfectly.

Nope, original finish. Never actually thought about it until you pointed it out, but they do match very closely.

Here's a link to my current Home Theater. I would put up pictures here but there are just too many. As you can see I built a custom audio rack which I just finished and everything else was bought. It took me just about 3 years to build this as I am still young(21) and doing school, building this theater took a long time. I wish to upgrade the speakers next to Paradigm Studio 100's for fronts and Studio 40's for mids and rears to go with the Paradigm sub I just bought and the dvd players are also one of my newest purchases. Incase your wondering my speakers are made by a good Toronto based Speaker company called StudioLab. The only thing im missing is a bigger room and a couple home theater seats to go with the couch.

This is what I currently own:

JVC 56" TV, Marantz SR6200 Reciever

Denon DVM-1815 5 Disc DVD Player

Sony DVPNC665P 5 Disc DVD Player

StudioLab Speakers

Paradigm Seismic 12 Subwoofer, Klipsch KSW-15

Xbox, PS2, Gamecube

Lazyboy Full-motion Sofa

FlyingV,

Nice setup there..., very clean! With your subs right up to your screen, does it cause "flicker" on the screen from the vibrations? I have that effect with my Rear Projector LCD. In all honesty, I kind of like it as it adds another element to the experience. If a morter is exploding, more than likely, it would be shaking my vision. :-)

Anyhow,

Cheers

Skidmarks - very nice, clean looking room. Definately a zen feel.

Prodj - do you know if 420 is Bob Marley's birthday or the number of chemicals in Mary Jane? I need to know once and for all.

6.gif You asked, here are some Myths found from a google search:

What does 420 mean? There are varying theories on the origin of 420. Some say that 420 originated from a police code that announces marijuana use is taking place. Yet another story is that a group of guys (Waldo's) in the 1970's made 4:20 their official meeting time to smoke marijuana after school. Whether or not 4:20 p.m. is the best time of day for your first hit depends on your own body, your own needs. Some folks feel that waiting until 4:20 enhances ones appreciation of the herb. Of course, your mileage may vary.

In the 21st Century, 420 is firmly established as a code amongst tokers, a time of day and even sort of a toker's New Year's Day. It's in our culture now and only time will tell where it ends up.

April 20th (4/20) is another usage, meaning that it is time for to plant before the summer.

Whatever the real story is, 420 has been an important part of the marijuana culture since the 1970's. The significance of 420 has been kept underground and is mostly known only among marijuana smokers. Many non-smokers aren't aware of the symbolism when they see someone wearing a T-shirt or baseball cap that says 420 across the front.

When the 420 icon is somehow discreetly worked into a mainstream product like a film, marijuana users take notice. The film Pulp Fiction is rumored to have had all clocks throughout the movie set to 4:20. Marijuana smokers familiar with the symbol picked up on itmost people, however, did not.

While some marijuana smokers are using 420 as a code that enables them to openly speak about marijuana in front of parents or teachers. 420 has been to some, a sacred symbol for nearly 30 years. What Does 420 Mean? Whats 420?

Simply put, 420 is a symbol of cannabis and its culture. Today, April 20th events are international, and 4:20 pm has become sort of a world wide "burn time".

Known 420 Myths

Police dispatch code for smoking pot is 420.

The number 420 is not police radio code for anything, anywhere. Checks of criminal codes suggest that the origin is neither Californian nor federal. For instance, California Penal Code 420 defines as a misdemeanor the hindrance of use of public lands.

There are approximately 420 active chemicals in marijuana.

Actually, there are approximately 315 active chemicals in marijuana. This number goes up and down depending on which plant is used.

April 20th is National Pot Smokers Day.

Well, it is now :) ; but that wasn't the origin.

April 20th is Hitler's birthday.

Yes, it is his birthday. But, as 420 started out as a time, not a date, his birthday had nothing to do with it.

The date of the Columbine school shootings.

This happened after the term was already in use.

4:20 is tea time for pot-smokers in Holland.

Tea time in Holland is at 5:30 pm, or is it 2:30 pm? Seems no one is quite sure when the wonderful people of Holland drink their tea.

there should be a place on this forum strictly for members system pictures and descriptions, similar to the Virtual Systems area on AuiogoN. Would help memebrs zero in on others with similar systems or what they may be thinking about and ask questions more targeted, plus a chance for everyone to show and update their stuff. Agree with Pako though, in the meantime keep em' coming, great stuff...
