behind every curtain; also 2 book cases
on the back wall serve as a diffuser.

Normalement, il y a des draperies épaisses et des stores vénitiens sur la fenêtre à droite, et des matériaux absorbants/diffusants derrière chaque rideau; aussi 2 bibliothèques sur le mur arrière servent de diffuseurs.

Should we assume that is YOUR chair?

Might I suggest a Harmony 1 Remote as a relatively inexpensive upgrade to a sweet set up?

it "might" come later on...
the thought crosses my mind once in a while.

i often find myself with 2 remotes in my hands at the same time...
which is bad for the cigar and the booze and the women, etc...

also, thanks for the compliment. :-)

Hmm, if you send me your updates I think I can do it in the back end (tinker, tinker, tinker). Can you email them to me? Amie@axiomaudio etc etc.

At the top of the page you can see an up to date photo of my HT room.

The Hafler amp has been replaced by a second QSC GX5 (half the size, half the weight, half the heat, half the price, double the power, but the same audio quality) and, most important! the photo has been worked upon so it's now as nice for the eyes as the sound from the Axiom speakers is.
If you want to see the photo in detail, just refer to the link in my signature.
the system is 6.1; no center channel.
