Show Us Yours: Aviston's superslick entertainment room has been tastefully accented with a Carolina football theme.
This is Aviston. He's a fan of North Carolina sports. A big fan. He's going to show us his AV setup as part of CNET's Show Us Yours series.
How big of a fan? Decorative mini helmet lights big.
"This is the front view of my custom home theater," Aviston says. "I used metal art to cover in-wall speakers to give it some design while the room is not in use. Often people don't even know that this room has speakers and a TV in it."
"Once the metal art is removed you can see the pair of Klipsch R-5800-W II speakers. I use these for my RF and LF speakers along with one Klipsch R-5502-W II as my center channel," Aviston says.

Aviston removed the legs from a media cabinet and attached it to the wall, so it looks like it's floating. Inside you'll find an Onkyo TX-NR636 AV receiver, DirectTV DVR and Android streaming box. There's an Amazon Echo Dot and Nintendo Switch on top of the cabinet, along with a temperature sensor for an Ecobee 3 smart thermostat.

The 120-inch electric screen is hidden until called upon to descend.
LED lights above and below the screen can be turned off.
The LEDs change colors.

Recent additions: A Harmony hub with remote, Echo Dot, Nintendo Switch and Ecobee 3 sensor. "Now the system is completely voice activated along with smart light switches that are controlled by my Samsung SmartThings Hub," Aviston says.
