I have an interest in the PS-X555ES.  So I read this thread.
Shadow Lord, I gotta tell you, the results of all your work have paid huge dividends.  I laughed with the 'protection from the little man' pix.

Your setup is beyond impressive.  You have everything most of us aspire to.  The planning involved and the hard work you have done are inspiring.  I hope to one day be able to build my dedicated home theater down in my basement.  It will require a little more work, because the back of the theater will house my hardback book collection of approximately 3000 hardbacks.  Plus all the HT type stuff you have done.  I'm still seriously considering sonic loading my floor with two tons of beach sand and then laying the flooring over that.  We will see.

Keep up the great work.  And keep posting all those great pix.

Very nice dude - love the array of lights in the dark

I'm based in the UK - I work in a Sony Centre and our variant of your TV is the "55X5500" - absolutely beautiful TV with the LED backlight system - the only TV i've seen to carry such pristine picture quality but retain the film like quality you usually only get with a projector.

Stunning work my man.

Hi All,

Do I need to be a paid member to see the pics? Trying to see Shadowlords progress, but no pictures can be seen.

Hi frahengeo,

Welcome to Agoraquest.
No, you don't need to be a paid member to see the pics. You should see the pics as they are just fine.

jim,

Thank you for the compliment. You may have laughed at my little white fence but so far my equipment has no little finger prints anywhere on it! Do you own a ps-x555es? That is quite a collection of hardbacks. Mine is no where close to taht big (A hundred or two at most..) What genere's do you have?

Unfortunately in CA basements are rare. However, if you have one it is perfect for the HT experience. Just make sure you have no moisture/humidity issues.. Just out of curioisty how much would two tons of beach sand cost you?

You say that man, but i've never seen ES equalisers and the like in real life yet!

A customer of mine has an ES system, consisting of the 1000ESD pre, and matching tuner, CD, tape and TAN-55ES power amps, one of which isn't even being used. I'm trying to buy one of the power amps off him as we speak to power my front channels.

When I went to his place to listen to it, he had the pre in "hall" mode which added an echo to everything - made the entire system seem a complete waste of time and money - i've had all in one minis with those sort of effects!

I want to get hold of a stereo pre and power to use for music, but I can't find anything on eBay at all - so you're not doing too badly, even if I do have access to more of it as I'm in Europe!

That is strange. I see ES EQs on e-bay all the time in the US (both the 555ES and the 333ES). I wonder if they were never marketed in europe? Good luck w/ the TA-N55ES. There is one on audiogon right now but I am not sure if the seller will ship to Europe.
