Nice Pics. and a lovely Setup
Love the stands as well However I do find it a little low.
I could be wrong if it is ear level

I guess what Baijuxavior meant with more pics was individual pics of the components etc

What kind of picture should be taken? Please elaborate.

As pointed out by another member, i was referring to the individual components. I was browsing on my phone and i could not differentiate the individual components.

Thanks! These are standard stands from http://www.hifivision.com/group-buys-deals/18224-bookshelf-speaker-stands-soundfoundations.html#post250047

These stands are 26" high and speaker are over that. So center of driver approx 30" from floor and are at ear level.

hi,
Nice set up there. Please tell me how have you secured the speakers on the stand.
Thanks! Magna from forum provided transparent anti-skid pads of 10mm diameter which are fixed at bottom of each speaker corner.
Look here -> Anti Skid Resonance Control Pads

This is complete setup.


Speaker terminals added to DIY FFRC speaker cables.


Speaker stand with WF Diamond 9.2 bookshelf speakers.


You can see audio wires and mains supply wires are concealed. Individual equipment has its own power mains switch.


Xtreamer Sidewinder2 with 500GB internal HDD connected to internet/LAN PC using wired 100Mbps LAN, TS HD+.


My DIY amp as described above in previous post in this thread.


Sony DVD player, this item is very sparingly used as I dump DVD iso's in PC or HDD of xtreamer itself. Playback is easy and comfortable. V-Gaurd Digital 200 for controlling voltage which always remains towards higher side 230-255V in different time of day. All sockets are powered from it. Main switch at right side below TV is onetime ON/Off for all.


Right speaker.


My TV has only 2 HDMI ports. So I added this 3-1 ViewHD HDMI selector which selects Xtreamer and DVD player intelligently if powered on. Only 2 ports are used from it.


This is Panasonic Plasma 42" C10 model bought during Dec 2009 with 3 years warranty. So far no trouble. I calibrated its brightness, contrast, color, tint and sharpness using calibration/pattern DVD(downloaded). So clarity needless to say.
