Thanks cno Like what u did there. Going to try and post up some other pics, wanting input to see where further improvements can be made. Still thinking about Apple tv for the airplay function. Also still considering the rdac wireless. Not done a lot to the system since buying the iPad. I feel some purchases coming on.......

It's always good to see others spend money!
IMO. The areas that I would look at would be:
Room Acoustics - ie A rug (if there isn't one) to offset the reflectiveness of the floor.
Speaker position - they seem very close to the wall.
Sub Isolation - Auralex (preferable) or Granite
Mains Cables - On Sub, Amp and Skybox. It is worth finding out for yourself (if you haven't already done so), as the gains can be worthwhile....use ones that can be sent back eg. Clearer Audio Copperline Alpha +.
Appologies if you've tried all this, but it's worth repeating as it makes quite a difference.
Thanks again cno. I have not tried any sort of mains conditioning. Was always a little scepticle about its merits.
Soft furnishings- there is a large rug (with wooden table on) in the middle of the room directly in line with the "ideal listening position". A large, heavy set of curtains behind the sofa. The rxfx are tucked in either side of this set of curtains, which is not ideal as i side of the bipolars is firing into the curtain effectively.
The pioneer has its mcacc to compensate for room accoustics. Which may sort out a number of issues??
That's a super nice setup you got there sub looks like it can belt out some bass.

Yep very pleased with the bass although finding for the time being that less is more.... When running the mcacc calibration the Pioneer amp keeps telling me to turn the volume down on the sub. Finding that it integrates better with the fronts nicely for music if i turn it down a little further again... The Rx6's are a tight bass with not too much low end. To be honest only really use the sub for movies and very occasionally with music.
Looking back at the pics again the gear is looking rather smudged with paw prints will need to give it all a spring clean i think!!
What do i do with this?? Anyone know of a good system/method of sorting out cables.
Speakers are nice and tidy....
