    I'm working on plans to build a new house now and the whole thing will be wired big time! I'm running Cat5 to each room from a central point and two wireless access points. Also going to run A/V cables to certain rooms with hookups like that..coax the whole works with speakers in each room ceiling corner of every room. The wiring alone will likely cost alot but I plan on doing that myself.

    It would be worth the time to do all that vs cutting holes and running cables that I've had to do now in the house i'm in.

    Why would you put all the equipment (DVD, Receivers) behind the couch?

    why not? it would appear as if he's got bouncing antenna's to pick up the remotes..but this way the lights on the equipment don't shine in your face when your watching the TV...most new DVD/blue ray players have bright lights that are annoying.

    The remote is most likely RF, a lot of people will put the equipment either behind the seating or even in a closet or another room.

    Those speaker terminations look like A$$, I'd say they are losing a bit through all of those connections.

    My guess is in this case, it's done for appearance. It makes it less cluttered in the front of the room.
