I live about 25 miles SW of Boston, MA.

I have three stock SongTower speakers in a plain black finish for the front channels of my dedicated HT powered by an ATI 1506 amp.

Of course I would welcome anyone within driving (or flying) distance to come and hear my new HT3s.

Caution, I might try and sell you a complete audio system.  :)

Woodbury is a fairly new suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, set in the beautiful rolling hills of Washington County, kind of north of the Mississippi river and west of Wisconsin.  It is full of beautiful parks and wetlands and huge shipping centers.  It was rated as one of the best places to live in the country a little while back in one of the major news magazines (they must have really liked the shopping centers).

My home overlooks a wetland full of geese and ducks and deer and raccoons and water rats and mice and probably snakes.  I have a beautiful horizon to horizon view only marred by the rooftops of a development set so low into a nearby valley that I suspect all anyone will see is rooftops if we ever get a really heavy rain storm. Of course likely my property taxes are paying for their storm drains.  Oh well.  And of course there is the traffic light a half mile away that mars the pristine view, but you can't have everything without paying a lot more for it.

Anyway, what I am trying to wax poetic about is that overall Woodbury is pretty nice.

I should add mine as well.  HT3's with HT1 center and Aerial surrounds (but having Jim build me some HT1's I can mount on the wall), Lexicon MC8, misc. amps, have both the active version with DEQX (for stereo) as well as passive externals for home theatre. SVS Utra 2 for home theater.

Either these or the walnut HT3s in the sound lab.  Sound is the same, looks even better.
