My Home Theater System

Thank you for your interest and letters. Many have asked for details of my home theater system. At first I hesitated since I didn't want this web site to be about me but rather to focus on the subject matter. Still, you the visitor wanted more first hand information and the best way I can provide this is to go into what equipment I have and why I bought it. Please take a moment and let me know what you think.

My system is presented as just that, my system. It suits my needs and those of my family, it is affordable and within our budget and it provides what we feel is the best performance for the price we were willing to invest in it. Sure there are many products that are better but the great thing about the specs for home theater is there is a wide range of models priced for almost everyone. I would certainly love to have a high powered 300 watts system but I doubt my neighbors would appreciate it, especially since my normal working day begins at 1AM and I view a lot of movies late at night.

If you have a system that you would like to review please let me know. I would greatly enjoy including a section on other systems or equipment. I have received letters from people that have little dorm style systems to grand home theaters and would like to feature some of these alternatives. The main thing here is get the best that you can afford and enjoy.

I made a lot of changes since I started this section of the site so I will be adding the specifications of the new equipment as fast as possible.

The basic features of system are as follows:

bullet

42" Plasma High Definition TV

bullet

Two VCRs, one Sharp, one Panasonic

bullet

Phillips Blu-ray DVD player

bullet

Toshiba DVD Recorder

bullet

Technics Dolby 5.1/DTS decoder

bullet

Technics Six Channel Receiver

bullet

Logitech Harmony 1000 Programmable Universal Remote

bullet

High End Cable connections

bullet

Dual independent cable decoder boxes

bullet

JBL Decade D38 matched speakers for front and surround

bullet

bullet

bullet

Technics speakers for center

bullet

60 CD Juke Box

Details of each piece of equipment will be added as I get to it. The weekly features come first!

There are also three switch boxes. In my area cable service is provided only through channel 3. As such, I have to have the cable box set to the channel I want to record before I can record. In order to record two different cable stations, I installed switch boxes so I can redirect one cable box to one VCR and the second box to the second VCR. I also added a switch box to redirect the output from the second VCR to the first VCR instead of the default setting of going to the TV.   In the above diagram, the thin lines are coax cable while the thicker lines are three line AV cable.

 

Thanks to everyone visiting this site.
