    Default Lots of Upgrades!

    It has been quite some time since I have been around and today I receive the last component to my upgrade overhaul I have been doing over the past couple of years.

    Here is the list of things I have upgraded since my last visit:
    Panasonic AE4000 replaced with AE8000
    Pioneer SC-25 now in bedroom replaced with SC-57 in main room
    Polk Audio Monitor 70 replaced with RTi A9s
    Polk Audio CS2 replaced with CSi A6
    Polk Audio Monitor 40 replaced with FXi A6s
    Logitech Harmony One replaced with Harmony Ultimate
    Oppo BDP-83 replaced with BDP-103
    Microsoft Xbox 360 S Halo Edition 250GB w/ HD-DVD replaced with Xbox One Day One Edition
    Sony Playstation 3 320GB (60GB SKU) replaced with Playstation 4 with 1TB SSHD installed

    Added:
    65" Panasonic VT30
    and last but not least my Emotiva XPA-5 arrives today!!!!

    I am really excited to install the Emotiva later today and listen to the difference. I could tell for a while now that my Pioneer was not doing my RTi A9s justice.

    I know there are mixed feelings about the brand on these boards but personally I expect a notable difference and the free shipping in no tax really pushed me over the edge to hit the order button.

    Thank you very much, gentlemen!

    Seeing jeremymarcinko's sig reminded me that I forgot to add that I bought a Pro-ject Debut III and will be putting on Daft Punk Random Access Memories on vinyl first thing, once the amp is hooked up.

    I will post a pic or two later today after what is going to be an incredibly long day of work.

    Thanks! I am actually torn on what I should try first. By the time I got home last night and rewired everything to get it setup it was pretty late so I couldn't push it.

    I did briefly try Tomb Raider the game and I was blown away by how much better the surround imaging was even at quite low levels. I was hearing effects well between the LF and LS.

    Thank you!

    Here is a pic, albeit kinda blurry. I need to buy new rack furniture at some point, as you can see the amp hangs out a bit.
