I wont go into a whole lota details but as part of my Divorce, I gave the wife the house. I moved back into the "family" house (my parents house) which I own part of and Dad has passed a few years ago, my Mom is still alive and living in a pretty large house alone so she's welcomes the company and someone to take care of her (and someone she can take care of as well). Another plus side is it has a large garage and my baby stays warm and DRY (instead outside in this freaking rainforest of a state)

Anyhow, I'm back in my old room(s) (I feel like George Castansa ) and I had Dads OLD TV up here along with 100 year old cable. So I'm going from this....

I love my Epson 57" LCD -Proj. As my computer monitor. Sit back 15 feet away and it still seems big. Plus welcome to the high def man. By the way if you cant get the waivers for the locals just tell them you want to use the receiver in your motorhome or cabin. It got me all the HD locals. he he he. I do have the cabin to back it though it aint much but they don't know that, mor of a hunting cabin really.

my main tv is high def as well (65 inch hitachi) but just wanted a better monitor on the computer plus the wife ties up the tv with all these reality shows recording two on the dvr and watching one so this way I can still watch what I want

Do you actually like audiobahn? The only distributor in the area dropped them due to defect rate.  We run a 2 store set up and primarily ran JL, Alpine, and JVC.   But struggled with a 3 rd main line for our store.. Dropped MTX, directed audio, PPI, Orion, Viper Audio, MB Quart, that list hurts my brain than  the ones I,ve kept.  Memphis has actually surprised the hell out of me. Love IT IF it weren't for alpine head units, Mephis would be my #2 Car brand

I have a 32 lcd I use as a computer monitor and to watch movies on... perfect size for my desk. 42 would have been too much...

I wouldn't trade this in for anything else! Well, except for a better 32!
