  • Loshine wireless keyboard w/ trackball, Lenovo RC6 MCE Remote

  • ZyXEL NSA-325v2 NAS, 2x2TB WD Green
  • CiragoLink+ USB NAS, 3x2TB WD Essensials
    • AV equipment:
      • Sharp Aquos 60" LC60LE651E "Smart" 3D TV.
      • PS3, early rev.
      • Panasonic BD60 BluRay player

      • Earthquake Platine NoireĆ© rears, on DIY height-adjustable stands
      • Cerwin-Wega LW-10-X 10" subwoofer

      Luckily the significant other cares more about actual performance. than WAF Smile And yes. I blacked out some cable mess, just got the 60" in today and need to rearrange the whole cabling soon. Must be 10 power cables & warts, 2xTP, 3xHDMI, 6xRCA + assorted speaker cable and interconnects jumbled up back there. Also need to shimmy up the TV, so the center speaker doesn't block the IR transmitter for the 3D glasses.
