    Cellsplicer,
    Just curious, but you use your setup mostly for games or music (or both)?

    I use it mainly for music, and a tiny bit of movies or TV shows. For gaming, I almost exclusively use my headphones.

    Hi Curtis,
    No I never tried that. But when watching a movie, I am never aware
    of the speaker being so high over the TV. I have it on a slight ramp,
    so it is angled down in line to my listening position.

    I think I will have to demo the center speaker resting on the counter, just
    to compare. But I really enjoy keeping the counter clear.

    Well, I was thinking that the toes would give the reader my
    vantage point of laying on the bed.

    But you are right, it's too much

    My L & R stands are Plateau RT-23. They're not the heaviest stands but I did fill the posts with sand which helped quite a bit. If it wasn't for the fact that I already had them on hand, I probably would have gone with the Ascend stands when I purchased the 340's. None the less, I am quite satisfied with the results I'm getting with the Plateau stands.

    My center is sitting on a an old Paradigm speaker until I can find a suitable speaker stand and I'm using Samson MS-200's for my side surrounds. I have found that having the center out front of the TV worked out better than when it was in the TV stand.

    Bump. I enjoy viewing the pics for tips on improving my own setup.

    Thanks

    In all honesty, my greatest sonic improvement was installing the various traps. Before traps, my room sounded like a gymnasium. The thing I always have to pay attention too, is that now, I can push crazy dbl's without any distortion. This is not only because of the traps but some great amps and speakers as well.

    as out of ordinary a that seems to look, I'm jealous! I have a bit of interference from a close wall; blending a bass trap into the room is almost impossible. I did see a guy that made japanese privacy shades (like for changing your clothing behind ) and redid the fabric into trap friendly.
