We know not everybody has the home theater of their dreams. We know there are some of you out there that shop longingly at your local electronics retailer, dreaming of the day you can dump that crappy rig and get something the neighbors will be envious of -- or hear all the way down the block, anyway. That's where we -- and about five thousand dollars worth of gear -- come in. Let us trick out your home theater.

We want you to send in photos of your janky home theater setup (accompanying video is fine too), and maybe a word or two about what kind of crappy equipment you're still using, and why you think it's time for an upgrade. (Please try to keep it brief.) We'll select the home theater most in need of the Engadget touch, and then hook you up with the following gear:
Yeah, we've got it covered top to bottom: plasma or LCD, HD DVR, PS3 with Blu-ray and HD DVD, programmable remote, 7.1 system, even a placeshifter -- everything you need to bask in HD entertainment.
