Title: Favorite Home Theater Toy
Post by: Bob on July 06, 2007, 08:10:25 PM
Okay, we all have our favorite home theater toy.   Be it that fun universal remote, the DirecTV satelitte unit in a briefcase, whatever.   What is yours?

Mine is the Logitech E-Harmoney 880 Universal remote.   http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/remotes/universal_remotes/devices/372&cl=us,en (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/remotes/universal_remotes/devices/372&cl=us,en)

I basically got it "free" from Best Buy via reward zone certificates when I got my 50 inch plasma.    It is SO easy to use.

What is yours?

I have a Home Theater System of Complete Cerwin Vega surround sound speakers with 100lb 'Monolith' powerhouse speakers & powered sub woofer!
All powered be Pioneer 350w receiver..
The entire system is 11 years old, but Still Rocks the House!

I love my X-Box 360's HD-DVD player. I'm now 90% more likely to watch ANYTHING as long as I can watch it on HD-DVD. Matrix Trilogy? Bring it on! Hulk? Heck yeah! Aeon Flux? Bring on the HD-Rifftrax! :^)

I love my Logitech Harmony remote as well (E-Harmony is an online dating site).  Right now I got a 550 and am looking at getting a 720 (which is like an 880 but with the slim design like the 550)

My system is appallingly old (the newest component is my 2001 DVD player), but my favorite has to be my hand-built dual subwoofers. Frightening one's cats has never been such fun.

(we once used the T-Rex scene from Jurassic Park to scare trick-or-treaters; good times)

The lobby shoot-out scene in The Matrix is one of my favorite demo bits.

(yes, according to Mike and Kevin, I need help, but oh well)
