    When you get the stand out of there, you should have a better acoustical response in the room. That's a lot of space you just opened up in that room Trey. Hooking and unhooking the gear should be a hell of a lot easier as well.

    The coffee table thing is the TV stand. That's why he has to get it out of the room. ;)

    Sweet, thanks for the pic, Sid. Now everytime my GF starts to bitch about all the gear I have cluttering up our apartment, I can show her that photo and give her the ol' "could be worse, I could be this guy" routine.

    Does VPMS recommend using their subs as tv stands? Will the TV not vibrate around a bit?

    That was my first thought. That can't be good for the TV.

    I was more worried about the nice CDP located right between the two, and is that a zune in front of one of the woofers?

    I have the subs turned up very very minimal... Probally 15-20% on the volume knob... IF that (just filler response)...

    I have it on "max" right now -- nothing is vibrating off...

    The subs weigh 140 pounds a pop... they are not light weights... for sure....

    To put it in perspective, I put my hand on the base of the TV stand and felt almost no vibrations... :)

    I definitely plan on getting some foam isolation blocks to put on the floor between the gear... Rome wasnt built in a day...

    And yes, that is a Zune

    And yes... there is an IMMEDIATE difference in soundstaging and definition... particularly behind and beside the speakers... and the center seems more open and dynamic...

    No need to worry about those subs vibrating. Heavy bastards. Besides, the drivers hardly move. Just gotta be a bit concerned about all the toys and other crap hanging around those subs.

    Oh, and I take it that you got the Candela repaired?

    F1, it looks to be a pic taken of a bunch of rednecks at his house :p. If it were PF, you would see Ted's speaker's in the background and stairs leading up.

    I had no idea the pair of Stratos were so huge...

    I too am thinking up ideas for amp stands for a similar arrangement as you have, only mine aren't so freakin' massive.

    Yeah the amps were kind of dwarfed to the TV stand, they really are just... massive... and heavy amps too... 60-70 pounds Id say per amp...
