Our New Home Theater
Finally, after 19 years, the old Sony XBR 61 rear projection died!
So it was time to redo the home theater with new equipment:
A new Panasonic 65" plasma
Martin Logan ElectroMotion Electrostatic Speakers
Dual Martin Logan Dynamo 700 subwoofers,
Marantz 6008 Receiver
Samsung Blue-ray player
The older Martin Logan Logo center channel and Martin Logan FX2 Surround Speakers, and 2 separate power amps complete the 5.1 system. And of 'course the AR turntable stays!
I had been selling some of the equipment on craigslist for a couple of years in preparation for this day and had already sold: the Acoustats 1+1 speakers ($600, to a fella on Pine Island! wow), two pairs of Martin Logan Source Speakers (one for $1000 & other for $1100, both guys came from Tampa). Just recently I sold the Acoustat Model 1 speakers ($400, Naples audiophile), the MartinLogan Depth i subwoofer ($960, to a 20-something kid that drove all the way from Gainesville!), and the Aragon phono amp ($200, to same Naples audiophile).
I still have for sale the Harman Kardon processor ($450), a Counterpoint Digital/Analog converter ($750), the Sony DVD player ($0), and the Sunfire True Subwoofer($750). You have to price high so the low ball offers are doable!!!! The 2 Parasound amplifiers I'm not selling for now and neither my Nakamichi ZX7, the Panasonic S-VHS and the Sony Hi8 players which I left in the rack (old home videos).
I did have to re-configure the whole audio/video rack and run a lot of new cabling...too much to list here.

61...it was that heavy!
Had to load it into the garbage truck because they could not lift it!
