    nice, but you need a rack, surely that Denon needs fresh AIR.

    Yeah. Let the Denon breathe, or it won't be providing power for long. Nice system though.

    Kindof strange how you have your speakers almost perpendicular to each other. I think I remember trying that once when I was younger... I like your tape deck though. I miss my old '81 pioneer deck.

    Is there a reason why your AV gear has to go next to the TV?
    It makes sense to me to place the two front speakers the same distance away from the TV. I would swap your left front with the AV gear.

    yeah you should rid of the EQ, especially if its not being used. The more weight off of that AVR the better, at least until you get a decent rack. Best Buy had these

    Simple but yet they should work for you. It's an ever growing hobby and allot of knowledge to be gained, you're on the right path though. Again keep up the good work.

    Very nice, but agree with everyone else. Next purchase is a rack.

    If you are handy you could build your own rack. Use the search function for DIY racks - or Google it. Nice stuff btw! :)

    Lots of great gear in a small place; but that Denon needs AIR! We're in the "get a rack next" camp. Great stuff though, Thanks!

    You could purchase 4 hocky pucks (total cost about $4) and put them under the legs of your sony. That would give your Denon a little more airflow and help things out quite a but until you got a rack.

    I like to cut tennis balls in half and use them as vibration dampening feet and spacers for disc players. Would probably work better then hockey pucks.

    Tennis balls, Hockey Pucks, Pick your poison! Either way it sounds like more air for that Denon!!

    With the amount of items that would be resting on those 1/2 tennis balls, I think they may end up getting squashed flat.

    A great idea if you only have one or two components to stack though.

    Also i was thinking about running my speakers throught the crossover on my velodyne sub. they will be crossed over at 80 hz then. which should let my speakers reproduce the highs and mids better and just let the sub reproduce the lows. would this be benificial to my sound? And since the sub woofer is a 400 watt sub would this mean more power for my speakers?

    Why do that when you can use the crossover in your AVR and get good results. Try that route first

    I bought this avr because it is a great avr. but right now i only have a 2 channel system. I have not yet bought my center or surrounds. Those are coming down the road. I wanted the capability to have 2 channel with sub for music, and 7.1 surround for movies down the road. thatis why i bought a reciever, basically i want two systems in one. So there it is the method behind my madness.
