Picture is more important to me than sound as my listening levels are often suppressed during night time watching due to my daughters complaining when all the speakers start to sign ( in particular the Rel quake sub).
I love my Kuro as well. But I was massively tempted by gel! The only reason I resisted from buying the GT50 for such a low price, is because my priorities lie elsewhere (a 4K projector in a dedicated cinema room in a self-built house in 2014-2015! )
Nice! I am looking forward to seeing pictures of that!

Steady! Quite far off for that at present!
This is my aspiration. Depending on where I get a Consultant's job, it is very likely I'll have to relocate in 2014. I would love to build a house, & this will be the best opportunity for that. I like to plan things well in advance so I have enough time for research.
Of course, home cinema is a priority in the plan.

Hello again arty,
Gosh, you must have very special loudspeakers if they can sign! My speakers can be said to only sing!
Some time back in the trail, I was the first one to mention the Yamaha RX-V673 receiver, at about £500. However, I do believe that the (outgoing - and it has been outgoing for about six months now, I'm very surprised that it is still available) Yamaha RX-A1010 would be even better, as bigboss suggested
"Or better still, this one at an exceptional price?
The only thing that it would be remiss of me not to mention is that I think the newer RX-V673 has 4K video passthrough, whereas the older RX-A1010 does not. (4K video passthrough is not important to me just now, and probably not for at least two years, but it might be important to you.)
The Yamaha RX-A1010 would leave you £1461 from your £2K budget.
This is where your charm comes in.
You use all the skills and flattery that persuaded Mrs arty to become Mrs arty, and you tell her that the Samsung PS60E6500 is such a good TV that you won't need to buy another TV for years. Reviewed http://www.trustedreviews.com/samsung-ps60e6500_TV_review#tr-review-summary and http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-ps60e6500-ps51e6500-201207262022.... Besides, whether she's been talking to bigboss or not, you can tell her that never mind having a 60" set in your living room, the chap who suggested the Samsung has a 60" LG in his kitchen! (I WILL be changing my signature within a week) The only trouble with actually buying the £1,599 Samsung PS60ES6500 is that it seems to be available from only Currys/PC World, who are not my favourite shop, or from those tax-dodgers at Amazon.

If the last link that I gave above doesn't work, you'll find the introduction to the review in the July 2012 button, you'll have to scroll down just past half way. If you click the Review button at the foot of the introduction, that will take you to another page where you can get access to the full review.
Do you mean by hand? My Brother-in-law did that, took him 16 years. Well, I say 16 years, he hasn't actually finished it yet...
No signature worth mentioning...
Well, not solely by hand!
I will oversee the project, & maybe save money by painting the interiors myself etc. I will not even try to do the structural work myself. It's better for experts to do it.
Very early days still. It's just a thought, & gathering information about what the process involves. It'll probably be towards the end of this year, or early next year, that I actively start looking for land etc.
Your Brother-in-law isn't Petrocelli is he?
A joke for older posters there.

Now you're talking.
It will take something very special to part me from mine (unless it breaks)......imo they are a cut above.
Older than me clearly! *Miaow*...
He was a carpenter by trade and is now a fully qualified electrician and plumber as well! Even dug the foundations himself. With a spade.
Yeah but you know where the cinema room's going already, right?
Whoa, steady on chaps (The_Lhc, BigBernardBresslaw, gel)
Let's not get too distracted by the salivating prospect of bigboss's future 4K dedicated home cinema room, and return to the subject of this thread, namely whether arty can maybe persuade Mrs arty to get the Yamaha RX-A1010 receiver and maybe the Samsung PS60E6500 television.
Who died and made you Mother? It's the internet, it's thread drift, it happens, you'll never stop it, don't try.
Yup, just figuring out how big it needs to be, & do I need a popcorn maker.
