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.

Well, arty has been given all the information he needs, & we're still here to suggest further tweaks to his plan, depending on approval from his Home Minister. Smile

Yup, just figuring out how big it needs to be, & do I need a popcorn maker. Smile

 

Very, and yes  Smile

This is what my dream system is, if priced sensibly:

To go with this sub:

Of course, I'll need a decent sized room, although I'm sure this extravagance is likely to be quickly shot down by Mrs. BB unless I show significant savings elsewhere by doing some building work in the house myself (how easy is it to install a bathroom, & to lay tiles / carpets?). :roll:

PS: Sorry arty, this thread is going waaaay off topic now! Smile

Looks like outstanding audio could be on the cards then!   :shifty:

RE: Upgrade my kuro

Arty, check this deal out, which will allow you to stay within your budget, buy the Yamaha RX-A1010 & still have some spare cash. Smile

You have to be quick, as only 4 TVs are left in stock.

If it was me I would go for that.  Some people even say the ST model is better than the VT model because it has a brighter screen.  Bargain!

The ST50 models are considered to be better with some ambient light than the VT50 series, which I gather really do need a quite dark room to give of their very, very considerable best.
