    Tower of Power..Updated***

    Notice how my wires have disappeared.
    I built a 5 foot wall and painted it black for the purpose of hiding all of the exposed cables ETC..The wall fits nicely between the Audio Rack and the Entertainment unit.It also acts as a support to reinforce the Audio rack.
    I placed my new DVD plaque that I ordered from ShowOff Displays onto the top part of the wall and also tacked on my old 'Now Playing' DVD holder too.
    A small 13" TV was installed into a shelf on the Entertainment unit and I have the ExpressVu Satelite running through it for the local programming to play in the background.
    The Tower of Power stands at an official 6'3" tall. The Parasound HCA-3500, my newest addition sits at the top of the Tower with the Parasound HCA-2205 placed in the first shelf.

    I am going to be forced to move this thread to the trash can. I told you guys about choosing the correct forum, lol. Sorry.

    Offense? Guilty as charged, hiding CATs from public view. Violation of Section 1 Clause 1 of the CAT Cables bi-laws. "I agree to prominently display my CATs, and speak highly of them every chance I get."

    Great job Trev! I think your about out of room though! Are those your rear speakers next to the mains? Don't tell me you run both those as mains?!?

      Trev why are those studio 60's next to the 100's? You're not doing them any favour up there

          Nice looking system. Hiding cables is not easy!

            Lex,,Theres so many cables back there that the CATS are buried. It's a real mess and you could always see a huge nest of wires between the rack and the entertainment unit.

            Andrew,,Since I have the aquarium along the back wall I could no longer use the 60's for the rears.
            The 4 ADP's are currently holding down the rear activity.
            I was using the 60's with the Denon for music as the 100's were under powered until I added the Parasound amps.
            So I use one for music and the other for HT.

              I was just razzing ya Trev Nice job on the wall, it looks very tastefully done, and nice idea about additional support for the rack. I would really like to see you move into a dual rack to lower that thing, but not sure that's an option. I mean, were that to fall, that could be very dangerous.

                        Hi Greg!,
                        Sent you an E-mail.

                        Jon,,The Sony XE-670 is OK. I don't have any SACD's yet.
                        In comparing it as a CD transport though, I prefer the sound I get from my SD-9200 DVD player. I find it to sound a little cleaner in this role where as the SACD player has a somewhat muddy sound in comparison.
                        However, If I did not do the AB comparison I probably would say the SACD player is excelllent as it still does sound very good.
                        I should be picking up some SACD's soon which is the reason for adding this unit into my system.
