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.
