I'll start off. I modified the TV stand a little since these pics. So I'll update this post when I can get a good photo.

Sony KDS-50A3000 BRAVIA SXRD Microdisplay HDTV
PS3 (60 GB Version)
Sennheiser RS 130
Logitech Z-5500 THX-certified, 505-watt 5.1 digital surround sound

Sony KDS-50A3000

I added some removable speaker fabric in the middle of my tv stand. Looks much better I think.

dont have any pics since everything's everywhere lol, but I have:

  • Samsung LN40A550 40″ 1080P LCD TV
  • 4x Sony SS-B1000 bookshelf speakers for rear and surround
  • 2x Onkyo bookshelves (dual woofer, don't know the model) for front speakers
  • 1x Sony center channel (forgot model)
  • Onkyo 7.1 channel receiver with THX Plus, DTS-HD, TrueHD, etc support
  • Phillips powered subwoofer from a HTIB (not sure of wattage, but sounds OK for an 8 inch sub)

I have my PC, 360 and PS3 hooked up to it as well. TV and PC stand on my clothing dresser, a shelf is mounted between two old cabinet things that are seperated by the dresser, with my center channel sitting on it over the TV. I have the rear and surrond speakers set up behind my sitting area sitting on a desk, using monster cable speaker wire (it's good stuff). Definitely not professional by any means, but I have limited space since my room has a big ass king size waterbed in it and I can only work with what I have lol. Before I got the shelf in, my center channel use to just sit on the floor…

EDIT:

also, the receiver handles 100W per channel, all speakers are 100 watt speakers, so that's 700W minus the sub lol

Thanks. I don\'t know if I\'d ever mount a TV to a wall myself. I\'d be to paranoid of it falling off, lol.

lol, same here, which is why I'd have someone else do it for me, and can be held liable, if anything gets damaged.

Viewsonic 40" 1080P flat panel  mounted on a big steel/wood/glass stand from Costco.

Pioneer 5.1 stereo (with matching speakers)

I have the PS3 and the cable box hooked up to the Viewsonic with HDMI cables.  The optical out from the Viewsonic goes to the Pioneer.

This allows me to switch between cable and the PS3 using one remote, and allows both devices to have surround.  The Viewsonic does a good job of converting audio from HDMI to optical.

1. Keep you PS3 horizontal, that\'s how mine broke (vertical) and I have proof just ask why if you need to know

I have a 52-inch Bravia TV HD 120HZ 1080P all for about $1000 with a free PS3 and a game (BestBuy Deal) with a 4 speaker set up from my dad.

George you may want to rewire your system. If you are using the optical out on the ViewSonic for all of your audio you are most likely only getting 2 channel audio that your Pioneer is converting to surround. Dolby Prologic II is most likely what you are seeing. You want Dolby Digital and that would require you wiring each source directly into the Pioneer.

Almost All HDTVs cannot output more than 2 channel audio from their optical out. They can however if they decode over the air signals. I hope that makes sense. You may be fine, I don\'t know what your ViewSonic does. It is a very large difference in SQ though if it is doing what I suspect.

@sparda626 some comments:

I would removed the EyeToy of your PS3, don't cover the exhaust vents.
Group your wires together and zip tie them, keeps it organized, less clutter.
Maybe put the left front speaker on the sub instead.

I like the storage on the side.

Here's a picture. It's getting a bit "crowded" since I got the z5500 so I need a new table. I have no idea where to buy one. Mèh.

 

 

Edit: Tosh, that speaker fabric looks superr sweet!
