Winter:
Your jpeg's have to be less then 1mb and with a proper .jpg extension. You'll see some red lettering when you try to post explaining your problem. It's a finicky, antiquated forum this, but be patient.

Need to redo the TV stand, new plasma doesn't quite fit, but oh well. Got some weird artifacts on the back wall in the first pic, too lazy to redo, but believe me, the walls are in great shape!

So what - that doesn't let people actively show off their stuff. Live and let live, dude.

I appreciate seeing this stuff - and I would never take the time to go through the members' gallery.

It's like show and tell. :)

Some nice systems here! Are those granite body speaker boxes? Would everyone be able to list their equipment with their pics so we all know what we are seeing. Always fascinating. Never 2 systems alike.
