The Media Center

As a testament to my possession of a Y chromosome, the media center is just about the only thing done in the house at the moment. Though most of the components have been up for about 3 months, I did not consider it complete until the recent acquisition of an xbox 360(mainly for netflix and guitar hero).

Overall, I have been extremely happy with the set-up. The tower speakers and turntable are probably the only things I would be interested in changing. The receiver is really a workhorse and I got a great deal on it. The remote is amazing, though I wish it was RF. The TV is exceptionally awesome, especially with respect to the deal I got on it on Black Friday.

Here is a list of the components with some linkage for specs:
