    Ok then; It's been a couple years and there's been a few changes. Here's how my main rig looks today

    What a Setup! I especially enjoy the George Jones Tapestry! I would imagine when you que him up, it literally sounds as if he's coming direct from Center Stage.

    SDA SRS 2.3TL's/SDA SRS 3.1TL's/SDA CRS+4.1TL's and some other stuff

    Thank you and yes his voice does seem to be coming right from him at times. I'd like to change the tapestry as it's been up there for a few years now but it covers the wall treatments and cabling behind it perfectly.

    3 way speaker with two 4" midrange drivers. One 1" soft dome tweeter. One 8" side firing woofer, powered by a 150w amp. 8 ohm, 91db sens. They dig pretty deep and overall, have a nice balanced sound. The low end can get flabby when played extremely loud, but I don't crank it up much anymore.

    That was a brief experiment to see if I'd like the extra lighting. They were old under cabinet lights left over from the kitchen remodel that I hated to toss out. It was a bit too much I thought so they came out.

    Could you not use a 12v step down transformer from a doorbell kit and add in blue LED's strategically placed to achieve the same thing? You could always add a resistor/pot to lessen the brightness. It does look bright there but I like the effect.

    Thinking of doing this myself.

    Yes you could do that. I use a 12 volt dc variable transformer and run it low like 8 or 9 volts on 12 volt strip leds for my tt underlights.

    Couple month(s) ago, not sure exactly when. More than one less than three.

    My guess is the old one that is attached to the entertainment center failed.

    A new one was purchased and just put into place temporarily in front of it, in lieu of taking the other one of the mount and then mounting the new one.

    The Panny plasma hasn't failed. Never had a moment of trouble with it. I got the Hisense 4K TV and needed to make sure it worked but the plasma is too heavy for me or the Mrs to lift off the rack by ourselves. The picture on the 4K TV is pretty darn good so we left it connected. We just need to hire someone to help us swap the TV's and then I can sell the Panny on Craigslist. IfWhen we move again, the Panny can't come with us, it's just too heavy to manage on our own and professional movers cost way too much $$$$
