This setup is incredible, the purple is a pretty nice theme going on, it even seems to match what is on the display lol. Any info on your htpc? It's output capabilities?

I love that case. I used the same one when I built mine about 4 years ago as well.

This looks great - the only "issue" I have with it is directly behind the TV... the grid look distracts me and takes the focus away from the TV.. but that may not be an issue with the lights dimmed.

I was looking at furniture similar to this at IKEA... this may have just sold me on it.

Thanks guys! The aluminum grid lines looks brighter in this picture, but in person, it's not as really that bright. When you dim or turn off the lights, it will disappear. Btw, all the cabinets here are from IKEA, so you can check it out at their store.

I can see your Denon Amp and the HTPC and PlayStation but can't figure out what the other two components are. The one underneath the amp and the one underneath the PlayStation?
