HT Junky,

Your system and room are top notch!

How often can you get to 70db on the volume control?

Who cares what the volume dial says! It's like anesthesia vaporizers, the # is irrelevant, it's the effect that counts.....

How often do you reach <100 dB peaks is much more interesting.....

The equipment is in shelving built into the wall. Behind the wall is a storage area, so I can stand behind it and get to the wiring. . .
Looks good!

Black is a great choice for your theater. I have my entire theater room painted flat black - ceilings and walls. I also have black carpet.
It does make a difference to not have light reflections off colored or glossy walls.

Are you able to add more equipment in the storage area behind the shelving unit?

One regret I have is not making extra space for more equipment.

Well, fortunately for me, my wife will leave when it gets loud, and when I really want to test a system, I do it when she's not around.....

IF 70 dB's shakes your house, you need a good civil engineer, but I know what you mean!

If you go to the storage room behind the equipment, it is totally open. I can walk right up to it. I built 3 huge shelves on the back side of the wall. The Richard Grays and the PS Audio P300 are back there. I could move the amp and Directv receiver back there if I wanted to, as I have an infared repeater for the Directv receiver and the amp is on a trigger. It really adds a lot of flexibility.

I also don't have to worry about heat, as the backside is totally open. The basement never gets hot.
