    A surround sound system. bought it Thursday afternoon, it's a Panasonic

    5 disc CD/DVD changer
    AM/FM radio with antenna (badass)
    1080i compatible. (my tv is only 720p)
    1000w sound system with sub, twin side tv towers, center speaker and twin rear wireless speakers.

    Onto the pictures. I set it up thursday after work, and don't have it all finalized it, but it prompted me to clean a little finally. I still need to get speaker wire to extend the rear speakers to around the sides of my bed.


    Main receiver on my stand with the Sub below.

    Sub/System/Xbox/etc

    My DirecTV box and top speaker. Yes the wires are hanging loose, I don't have any moulding yet. I mounted my shelf I've been meaning to mount for 3 months, changing channels is a lot easier now.

    The wireless rear speakers. They work decent playing music. Yes, my 'nightstand' is a mess.

    there is nothing wrong with a movie about a guy who hooks up with his daughters friends, has 3 gay neighbors, and a creapy kid next door. ^_^

    Yes it is. Yes I do. But since I want to watch tv in bed, my tv is in my room. I'm not paying for a 3rd receiver to have tv both downstairs and in here. :)

    Ah well... At half way up, its already loud enough and I have a 3 year warranty on it.

    Saw it on TV one night and thought it was great, so I went and bought it. Turns out the DVD has much more to it that TV cuts out. :)

    Werd.

    Who am I, B?!

    :werd: Hey look, we agree on something, fucking amazing!

    Well yeah, since I keep breaking my strings on my real guitar (broke my second set Friday night... blah), I gotta play something.

    But I only play it when my friend comes over, I'm addicted to Call of Duty 4. I play that more than anything.

    I don't play it that often. I was tuning the high e string and it snapped... which reminds me, what kind of strings do you like, B? I had some Ernie Ball strings on there.

    I'm just enjoying it as it is. When I feel like it I'll mess around with the settings while looking through the manual.

    Not bad, the wireless is nice aslong as it doesn't get any interference.

    I had a panasonic system like that in my spare bedroom. It was decent for the money. It depends what you are used to. My main system the center channel probably costs more than your system.
