No kids, no wife, no girlfriend. Which as I re-read my post suddenly struck me as a bit depressing. At least future girlfriends will have to accept the speakers going in!

That's the reason I'm buying myself an array of expensive Christmas presents. However, I'm really taking it up a notch this year.

I do however have two cats hopefully they don't make a mockery of my high gloss cherry...

I'm sure there are a lot of married men and women that would consider it liberating, not depressing.

I posted some pics of my High Gloss Cherry awhile ago. Here's another thread with some pics in the first post. And yes, the speakers really are THAT shiny . Notice the flash reflections in the pics of my setup. As for fingerprints, I haven't had a problem with them. They're usually invisible unless you get close enough and are looking specifically for them. As long as you avoid eating potato chips, bacon, and chicken wings before handling the speakers, you should be fine.

I'd almost talked myself into changing my order and going with one of the standard finishes, but those look great. I'm going to stick with them and wait the 4 weeks! Great photo's, thanks a bunch.

Just do it. You won't be sorry.

Someone posted pics of the HG cherry - I thought it looked great.

I think you'll be much happier in the long run by getting the M60's. They are awesome for music (even without a sub). For movies, you could continue to use your Onkyo sub until you move someplace else and have the money for an upgrade.

After completing your registration, you will receive an official M60 Posse badge and certificate.




I've got five bucks that says the M60ti's set to large and playing alone will sound FAR superior to using them in conjunction with any sub that come with a HTIB setup.

It'll be a hard 4 weeks, but its definately worth the wait IMO. Wouldn't mind seeing some pics when you get them .

Luckily Axiom almost always beats the estimate.

Sure, I'll be happy to post pics when I get them! Then you can all have a good laugh over the single guy who stuffed a 61 inch DLP, M60's, a VP150, surrounds...and a couch...into his 9x12 living room. At this rate I'll replace the couch with a recliner and completely embrace anti-social behavior.

I agree with Spiff's assessment, I'm afraid my Onkyo sub will only hold the 60's back. I guess we'll see when it all shows up and I can start hooking up.

I need to do some thinking about my cabling this weekend. I had hopes of getting it all through monoprice but they're apparently out of speaker cable forever. Not sure how that happens.

Nick, considering shipping charges, the most cost-effective source(even after sales tax)for speaker wire often is a local Home Depot, Lowes, or other hardware or electrical supplier.

I agree with John. Although I have used monoprice and bluejeans cable for many items, there is nothing wrong with buying from HD, Lowes, or Menards. Many times you can get custom lengths right off the spool. For the most part, copper is copper, just make sure you get the appropriate gauge for your length of runs. I just used 12 AWG for all my speakers.
