    Thanks! :) The center rear surrounds are Paradigm Mini Monitors (also have a pair for side surround height channels). The left and right side surrounds are Martin Logan Aerius i). Here a photo of one of the Aerius i. To see all the pix of my setup click on the Martin Logan Theater link at the bottom of my posts.

    Absolutely awesome.

    I almost went with this exact set-up but was missing a zero at the end of my “money available”.

    Wow, I hadn't realized there have been so many postings. Jeez thanks guys for all the very nice compliments ;)

    It's taken a while but now I'm "almost" where I want it to be. About the only thing I plan on replacing in the next 5 or 6 months is the pre/pro. Don't get me wrong I totally love the way my Sunfire Theater Grand III sounds, but it's starting to get a bit dated with regards to connectivity(no HDMI ins, and no Ethernet) and features.

    So right now the pre/pro I have my sights set on is Denon's upcoming AVP-A1HD. It's got everything I need and then some. And I just totally love that it has 6 HDMI inputs, balanced pre-outs, and the ability to stream lossless audio from my PC. And if it sounds as good as I'm thinking it will, it's going to be the one to get.

    Stop, stop, stop!

    That is just plain sick and I don't want to succumb to the idea that I should spend an entire year's salary on my HT. :D Am I envious? You bet.
