  • Center Speaker: Klipsch RC-62 II Reference Series Center
  • Side Speakers: Klipsch RF-82 II Reference Series Tower

Marco says: "One of the reasons why I made the home theater was in large part due to the fact that me and my (then) fiancée were saving money preparing for our wedding and decided cut back on going out to see movies. So we made a list of all the movies that we wanted to see once we were married and fully moved into our new home. Two years later, the home theater was built. Now we see a movie from our list at least once, sometimes twice a week. Just don't tell my wife it's a man cave -- I'm obligated to tell everyone who comes over that it's an 'entertainment room.'"

The phrase, "Pissing off the neighbors" is from a Klipsch marketing campaign.

Marco says: "I choose Klipsch as my primary speaker brand just the sheer fact that the speakers go BOOM! I've never been disappointed at Klipsch speakers and my Reference Series RF‑82 II deliver on all fronts."

Needless to say, Marco's choice of the Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 65-inch plasma was influenced by CNET TV guru David Katzmaier's review.

"After reading his [Katzmaier's] review for the Panasonic ZT and then finding out Panasonic was no longer producing plasmas, I immediately took the leap and bought it," Marco says. "There's something to be said for the fact that the Panasonic continues to outperform today's LED TVs. It's no doubt one of the best TVs ever made by man. So thanks, D. Katzmaier!"

Marco doesn't just collect games, he actually plays them sometimes. He's a PS4 guy.

So, does Marco have neighbors, and does he piss them off?

Yes and yes. "I've gotten two noise complaints," he says. "But after I explained and apologized, I invited them to check it out. A few scenes of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' was all it took for them to appreciate what I made. Since then, both neighbors have been pretty relaxed when I watch or play a video game. I try not to watch anything on full blast past 11 p.m., but that's just me being a good neighbor. Haha."

Marco has a separate side room/closet where he stores all his collectibles. He admits to having a "Collector's/Limited/Special Limited addiction."

Most -- if not all -- of Marco's Collector's Editions are still in their original packaging. "Yes, I'm one of those guys that buys stuff just to see it 'mature' on the shelves," he says. "My wife makes sure to voice her opinion every time she sees my 'toys.'"

"I managed to get old watch fixtures to store my Steelbook games and movies," Marco says. "Always have it locked, just in case!"
