So we’ve had our beloved Onkyo AVR for a few weeks now and we’ve been doing what we can to make it feel at home. For awhile it seemed like that gave us a good excuse to find new home-theater furniture to hold it and our television, and the rest of our home-theater components.
After a little bit of shopping, we decided that could wait until a more favorable time of year rolled around for some sales. We checked Bankrate.com’s “Month-by-Month Guide for Finding Bargains” and found we may need to wait another year for a sale on home entertainment furniture. That should give us plenty of time to decide what we really want in a cabinet for our media components. That will also give us time to save our pennies so we can buy something nice enough that we will love it forever.
The next hurdle was how best to arrange the furniture in the living room that mainly serves as our home-theater room. My poor sweetie! It wasn’t that long ago that he moved the cable from our satellite receiver to the other side of the living room. Now that we have a functioning AVR again, we decided the best way to arrange the furniture included moving the television back to where it was before we tried to get our Harmon-Kardon AVR repaired. That meant my dear hubby had to go back to the basement to pull the satellite cable and rethread it back to the other side of the living room.
Only so much can be done it a weekend, so connecting the AVR will have to wait. We moved the furniture and reconnected the satellite cable directly to the television. It would cost $170 to have Circuit City come out to connect the AVR for us, so we are going to do some studying and figure out how to do it ourselves.
