You are either single or have a very, very understanding wife.

Nice setup. I've got my wife leaning toward a HT room for our eventual house we build.

the tv in the second to last picture is my old tv which has been retired to upstairs. I work full time and mostly all my money is disposable income. It doesn't hurt to have a best buy discount either.

btw, that rack is a tech-craft rack (199.99). They sell it at circuit city, but i bought mine at THE WIZ (local chain) because best buy has crap furniture.

How do you get a best buy discount? Can I get one too or do you have to work there? After looking at your pictures I need one really bad .

What percent of a discount do best buy employees get?

I've always wondered.

Depends on the Markup.

Cables 50%-70%
Car and Home Audio 30%-50%
ESP 80%
Computers 10% or less
TV's vary on the Brand 10% and up

Worked there a couple of years ago and that's all I can remember off hand

Where do you get these, and how much are they? I'm looking for a new rack to replace my existing open rack. From your photos it looks like it has adjustable shelves. I'd actually need to get two, one for my components and one for the consoles.

You are soo lucky man! I can't wait to buy $hi! like that! Right now I have a Sony Trinitron 27" TV and Sony Dolby Pro Logic suond system. Not to bad for a 15 year old. Also this is the stuff I have in my room! It's nothing like a 50" HD though .
