I have too many hobbies; I rarely get to do any of them.

But, in no particular order: computers, home theater, disc (frisbee) golf, tabletop wargaming, Japanese animation, running, reading.

I hate running, never heard of disc golf, and tabletop wargaming (I know of some but can't play them). Besides that we're pretty much traveling the same road. What Home Theater setup are you running? I have a RCA 61" home theater television, paired with the Kenwood Excelon THX A/V reciever. Then, I went 7.1 with a Kenwood Soverign 100w amplifier and 7 pc. Yahmaha speaker system with subwoofer. Now I need to find a stereo cabinet to put it all in. I also have the Panasonic (or was it JVC?) DVD player/ recorder. Its been a while since I been home and now I forgot!

Yamaha make excellent A/V recievers.........you qot quite the mix there . I heard the best way to build the perfect system is to get the best of each componets......but there are some side effects from doing that.That is why I stuck to the Kenwood/ Yamaha setup.
