Apparently, today is the day where I have time for posting.
Don't be too hard on picture quality. I have been trying to locate my camera for a while to no avail and my phone's picture quality has deteriorated since it spent 5 minutes in the pool last summer. Anyhow. As I promised a while ago after I got the in-wall M3s, here are pictures and some techy description of the A/V rooms in my home (in alphabetical order).

A) Bathroom
Speakers: M2 on-wall (no sub)
Amp: Pioneer VSX1023 (main), controlled through Telnet
TV: Sony Bravia 26"
Airplay: Audio through receiver, Audio/Video through Apple TV
Video: Cable (shared with bedroom), Apple TV
Control: My remote software



B) Bedroom
Speakers: M3 in-wall (no sub)
Amp: Pioneer VSX1023 (Zone2), controlled through Telnet
Airplay: Through Airport Express (which also supplies LAN upstairs)
TV: Panasonic 50" Smart (not 3D)
Video: Cable (shared with bathroom), Netflix, DNLA through TV
Control: My remote software (local TV remote also available)



C) Family Room
Speakers: M22 on-wall (sub will be coming later this year -- likely an EP-350)
Amp: Onkyo 805, controlled through serial port (iTach RS232)
Airplay: Through Airport Express
TV: Panasonic 60"
Video: Cable (shared with bathroom), PS-3
Control: Harmony 900 + partially my remote software (missing an iTach IR blaster to fully control)



D) Gaming Room
Speakers: VP150s (no sub)
Amp: Pioneer VSX1023 (main), controlled through Telnet
Airplay: Through receiver
TV: Panasonic 46"
Video: Cable (shared with home theater), BD-330 player (netflix, DNLA)
Control: partially my remote software (missing an iTach IR blaster to fully control), local remotes
[And, YES, I will get a small entertainment unit to hide the mess of cables!]

Equipment hidden like the Wizard of Oz!



E) Home Theater
Speakers: M80s, VP180, QS8s, EP-800
Amp: ADA-1500 + Anthem D2v (controlled RS232)
Airplay: NONE (at least for now)
TV: Projector BenQ V7000 over a 110" Elite screen
Video: Lots of stuff
Audio: SACDs jukeboxes (3), SqueezePlayer [jukeboxes are controlled through my remote software]
Control: My remote software helped by Harmony 1100 (sending commands to my software, not to equipment)

5 pictures: Left to right, then left to right again looking at the back.







F) Reading Room
Speakers: M22s (no sub)
Amp: Pioneer VSX1023 (zone 2), controlled by telnet
Airplay: Through Airport Express
TV: NONE
Video: NONE
Control: My remote software



G) Salon
Speakers: M2s with EP-500
Amp: Yamaha HTR-5250, controlled by IR (yes, I have to remember the volume in my remote software and do 1/2 db ups and downs to set the volume!)
Airplay: Through Airport Express
TV: NONE
Video: NONE
Control: My remote software

Note: Those M2s do a SPECTACULAR job in that large open space. Most people are more impressed by the sound in that room than the others (expectations level).

(AS USUAL, I HIT THE LIMIT OF IMAGES)
to be continued...

Conclusion... Still a few rooms without Audio!
Anyone coming here with an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad is in paradise! Provided I let them on my network, of course!

I guess I should put my name in for auditions! :-)

I am speechless, Eric. You have a very beautiful home, and probably the most complete hi-fi audio installation I've ever seen.

Wow! Congratulations and well done!

Nice; however, you must spend a lot more time in the bathroom than I do, ha!
