Believe it or not, the black and silver colors of all the equipments (including the tower fan!) were a pleasant coincident. :D Electronic components are located inside the closet behind the far right door (door slides open for remote control during use). I wish I had this easy covering system for the Clarity's. :p

For stereo listening, the Clarity speakers really shine in the imaging and soundstage categories. The way I have these arranged, the L/R speakers produce an effect where sound is strongly coming from the front center of the room, making it sound like the center speaker was on when it wasn't! :cool:

Lastly,the red walls, white carpet, and blue ceiling and curtains add up to a great home theater feeling!

Clarity HT System...


:D Welcome to the ML Club!
Great HT Clarity set-up... :) I like your color sceme for you HT room. Am I seeing hanging round globe theater lighting in your photo? If so - it is tres cool... :D I've been considering hanging low voltage, adjustable HT lighting as well but I desided to wait, till I move to my larger retirement home, in about five years.

Excellent system and HT set-up... :D


No, they're not hanging globe lamps (that would be really groovey)...They're just a product of dirty camera lens. :(
