This is Anton. He's got a sweet entertainment space that features a 70-inch TV, surround-sound, two seating areas, and a bar (that's fully stocked, we might add).

Anton's man cave is part our Show Us Yours series that allows us -- the CNET editors -- to show off CNET readers' home-entertainment systems, big and small, in real-world settings. You can submit photos of your setups here.

But before you do, have a look at Anton's man cave.

Anton says: "Here's the bartender's view of the home theater and fireplace seating/games area. My 'man cave' is great for entertaining during the holidays and for sporting events. As one of my friend's wives put it: 'The seating area by the fireplace is great because those that are not as interested in what's on the TV can sit and chat without interrupting but are close enough to still be part of the action.'"

Seating area by fireplace. This is a great area to hang out where you can still engage with what's on the TV, but you are not in the center of it. It is also a great place to play board games. The two beanbag chairs in the back corner we use as seating at the games table/fireplace or we move them over to the home theater for additional seating for the kids.

Another perspective of the bar back (honestly, I do not have a drinking problem, I just enjoy making and trying new cocktails).

Floor speakers: Paradigm Monitor 9 v.7.

I went with Paradigm speakers because I find they have a lot of bang for the buck and that they're well balanced. The highs don't pierce and the bass does not drone or overpower. The midrange is great, too, which makes for very clear dialogue in movies.

Paradigm Ultra Cube 10. Powerful bass in a small package. I chose this subwoofer because it had tight bass and it tucked away beside the tower speaker so it was not such a focal point.

Marvel built-in beverage fridge. The shelving and bar supports are made from iron pipe and fittings to give the room an industrial look. The back bar shelves and bar top are made from wormy maple (the bar top has a live edge at the front) while the working surfaces are engineered quartz.
