Hello gerchy,

With all that great Sony gear I can understand why Agoraquest could be your favorite hangout.
Thank you for taking the time to take, post and share your  pictures with us. Very impressive.

Thanks guys!

When dedicated room will be finished, a HD projector will replace the 40" TV for which there is currently not enough space.

Very sleek looking ES gear and excellent pics too. The sidepanels on the BDP-S5000ES really make it look right at home with its older ES brethren.

Great system!!  I have the 1000ESD pre amp and the 55ES amplifier and would like to ask you a question.  Can I connect a current dvd player or television receiver which has digital output and connect it to the 1000ESD either via the coaxial or digital input?
