So that all my components wouldn't be my spouse's eyesore I designed a 3 part module built by a local furniture maker. The module set up allows easy access to rear of system.

Rear and surround speakers are hidden behind furniture along fireplace wall.

Looks very nice but could you explain your front speaker setup? I see what looks like two taller speakers on the left, two bookshelf speakers on the right and two small speakers on either side of the center divide, I'm confused?

Nice setup, very clean. Don't you find though the sound quality is not optimal since the speakers are so close to the floor? The tweeters should around ear level relative to your seating position.

I think Todd is confused as well when it comes to proper speaker placement.

Nice entertainment center if not a bit crowded.
