Ok, I'm going to attempt to post up a picture, bare with me...



Ok cool, I did remember it right. Ok so this is a picture of our livingroom a few months ago. When I moved in with Amy her livingroom was a simple 35 x 35 foot square room. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the room before, or while we were putting up the HT closet, so you can't see how drastic the change really is. Notice on the closet the cut-out at the top for the electronics cabinet, the cut-out below it for the secondary cabinet (I will eventually be getting an outboard amp that will go there. Also we can put our XBox or Wii in it if we so chose). Then directly underneath that is the cut-out for the EP800... Actually originally I wasn't sure if it would be the EP800 or the EP600. But since they are both the same dimension it didn't matter. But thankfully when I found out you could order the EP800 through the FO, that made my mind up!

Ok in this pic we see the new french door that replaced the old sliding glass type patio door. The french door is a dream next to the sliding glass door, I would recomemd the switch to anyone who has a sliding glass door. That's Tony walking past the door btw...


Here is a left side view of the closet, and the cut-out for the door I that will go in it. The piano in the background has to go, anyone interested in a piano? Pay the shipping and it's yours...


Ok in this pic we've painted the ceiling a dark gray, and put the track lighting up. I didn't mention earlier that the original lights in this room were 4 square in-ceiling lights that were absolutely hideous! So we replaced them with 6 recessed pot lights, and the track lighting that goes around the outer edge...


Here's what the inside of the closet used to look like...


Ok here I've installed the upper and lower cabinets. I have one of my computers, the Denon and a Sony DVD player sitting in the upper cabinet to give an idea of what things will look like...


A closer look at the electronics cabinet...


Here we've put down most of the wood floor...


Almost finished...

Alrighty them, so here are the pictures I took two nights ago. Everything is pretty much ready to go, just waiting on my Axioms...


The legs on the couch belong to my fiance Amy...


A look at the set-up from the 'captians chair'...


Can I just say that having a 65 inch computer monitor kicks some serious ass!!! Haha, hopefully I'll be pulling that piece of plywood out of the bottom very soon and replace it with an EP800...


A close up of the upper cabinet now with the dual computers, the Denon, the Maxtor external back-up drive (2 terabite), the FreeAgent external hard drive (600 gig), a DVD player, and the internet router. Also, notice the LCD lights I put in the top of the cabinet. I like the classic touch they add...


Now when you look inside the new closet you'll find all of our movies, our CD's, our printer...


Oh, and wire!!!


Gobbs and gobbs of the stuff!!! But, it certainly makes connecting stuff up a dream come true! That's the main reason I built the closet... that and the storage it adds...


Close the door and it's all nice and tidy! No scooting a 500 pound HT cabinet across the floor or anything like that. I've been in the back of this thing soooo many times already that the effort and cost of putting this closet up has paid for itself ten times over...


More pics to come as soon as my speakers get here!!!

Great looking room!

I thought you were buying the Axioms for the studio, though?

Very nice. It must be so nice to be able to walk behind all of your equipment any time you like.

Very impressive! The closet just adds immensely to the setup. Quick question though: once you have the EP800 in place would you mind reporting to us what the vibrations are like on the wall (and subsequently on the wall mounted TV). Looks very solid, but I am looking at a similar setup in the near future and am curious about the effect of the sub directly beneath it all (if any effect).
