DIY or CI?
Do you Do It Yourself with your electronics or do you hand it off to the professional Custom Installers?
While I had the pros pre-wire my house when I built it I'm in the DIY camp, besides my own I do my relatives & friends systems also.
Of course most everyone I know doesn't have really extravagant systems, most are under $10K.
However with my recent purchase of the Denon 3808CI I may be getting together with my dealer who is a Custom Installer since there are things in the Denon that only a Custom Installer can do.
