"We spend a lot of time in here listening to music and watching movies. Worth every penny--that's my opinion, not my wife's! She would have rather spent the money on a craft room or a larger walk-in closet."

"Everything just fits with my 60-inch HDTV. I don't think I could have gotten even a 62-inch screen in, as it's currently wall to wall. I initially had the sub near the wall, but it actually shattered the window--gotta love it!"

"Straight from a PX on an Army base in Germany, the 1969 TEAC reel-to-reel tape deck. Completely reworked and very clean. Amazing sound if you can get passed the analog tape hiss. I would love to add an 8 track, as well!"

"Yamaha's flagship receiver, at least when I bought it. It is hands down one of the best receivers I have owned, with plenty of clean, clean, clean power."

"The only way to go is 20-bit, and it organized the hundreds of CDs that were stacked everywhere."

"No, I have not gone HD DVD or Blu-ray as of yet--that is the VHS vs. Beta of the new century. I will probably wait until after the new year to make the wrong choice. The Achilles' heel of the system is the DirectTV HD DVR. I'm not kidding; I am on my eighth unit."

"And of course the system would just not be complete without my Xbox 360."

"My old sub has been reworked with a 850-watt BASH amp and upgraded 15-inch driver. A real chest thumper! Twin Sunfire Sig. Jr's to join the collection soon."

In this week's installment of Show Us Yours, we take a look at David Weddle's system. David built his system for his love of music and whether it's his wife's Harry Connick Jr. DVD, his son's Beastie Boys videos, or his Eric Clapton concert, this system delivers. In his words, "this sound system is mind blowing."
