certainly not a waste of money, but some amps/speakers will be better suited to a room like that.

And if you're putting in a TV, you'll need to think about blinds to block out some of the light.

RE: home cinema for new orangery

Is that for real or CGI???  Looks amazing, a "real" Tumbler or a picture?  Just can't get my head round it that this may actually be 100%.

we'll be having blinds installed to all windows and doors. not much i'll be able to do about the the glass roof though

the tv will be mounted on the south wall facing north, and it will be underneath the boxed ceiling so maybe in shade for some of the day?

whats gonna be the best screen for the room, plasma/lcd/led?

So much as I love plasmas, I think in your case LCD or LED lit LCD is a better option, due to your glass roof.
