I told you so...

When I sold my Parasound A21 because I'd bought an A51 to manage my 2 & 5 channel listening through my Yamaha RX A3020, a voice in my head said "don't look back you can never look back" well Don was wrong.
Immediately realized digital music via RCA's through my Yamaha did not work.
Result is a v.crowded Samson SRK21 rack with mismatched silver Parasound A21 (sounds very good though) 2 x Furman power, LG Blu-ray, Netgear switch, AC Infinity Multifan S3 & the Cambridge 851N to look at in the front.
Added 2 x 703's to replace the 705's in the 5.1 system, so far all is good (definitely much better) in my audio visual world.
Excuse to attach a photo or 2, more importantly lesson to all; don't be hasty or your rack components won't match..

    I got a A31 in the HT setup in silver don't bother me a bit, however it sits on a black amp stand off to the right between the stand that has all the other gear, and the right tower speaker the color mis match is not as noticeable that way as if it was all in the same rack with all black gear. The way it looks you have that rack placed behind your
    set up no one will notice it anyways nice rig by the way, got a love those Parasound Halos.

    Aluminum foil, dull side, could be a solution.

    Not to derail but how do you like the furman? I was considering one to combat the noise floor.

    Definitely like Furman units, plug them in leave them alone. I have 2 x PL-PLUS units in photo, plus a PL-8C 15 without the lights. They will increase in value in Oct 2015 they were $157 now same unit is $239.
