Well here it is hope it works............!!
Cant get it to work!!!!!
Are you trying to upload pics?
Yep view above thread^ May have it sorted wait till tonight!! Andrew is the Man!!!
Started for me as a student in Edinburgh when friends started buying proper hifi seperates. Used to go round to their flat and mix a pair of cd players with a synergy mixer and make compilation tapes... The Speakers were monster Wharfedale Valdus 500s with a couple of Tannoys at the back(it was a stereo amp) The sound was brilliant!!
This made me catch the bug so...
Went to Richer Sounds and bought a Sherwood R125RDS Pro Logic amp. A Wharfedale force 3??? A very odd looking centre speaker in 3 "modules".
To an independent shop and bought a pair of Mission 752s 2nd hand- Amazing!!
Then my other friend was giving Richer Sounds some business and i managed to get the Technics slpg 580a for £30 new!!
My flatmate then went and bought a set of Kef Coda 9s which went to the rear.
The flat had a sony 4:3 wood effect tv in it. Hooked that up to the amp.....N64(Goldeneye!!)
My flatmate walked past a 2nd hand shop and picked up a Bang & Olufsson VCR deck for £40
This was the home cinema!!
Moved out the flat and back to parents house where my bro and i had an upstairs sitting room.....
Bought an Aiwa active sub from a friend and a pair of Eltax ht2 Bipolars and HT Centre from RS.
Then bought a Nicam VCR Aiwa hxv 4500. My own complete Home Cinema!!
Took the step into dvd with a Sony dvp 3600. The biggest step ever!!
Then bought a Sony str db 1080 from hifi shop in Dundee. 5.1 was incredible!!
The sony broke down so used a ps2 for dvd for a while until i was given the Denon dvd 1920 as a present from my girlfriend. (now wife)
Moved out of the house with my brother and i moved in with my now wife...
She bought me my much beloved Pioneer Plasma...
All the above kit was being used until the Sunday of the Open last year....
Then went and picked up my MA Rx av12 and Pio amp from James Morrow in Edinburgh.
Have bought the Pio br player from ebay.
Still have all the above kit and other eqpt also. Its in its boxes in the loft... Need to have a sale i think....
So that is my AV habit from roughly '98 to now.
Love every bit of it!!

Thanks Messiah. It has taken a bit of doing but nearly there. Still a number of things i want to do to get it set just right
-Bi amp Rx6s to LX82
-Hook up the plasma direct to the sky so i can just watch tv with no amp
-Get a blu ray player
-Look into a dac for my mac (Needed or not??)
-Most importantly post a proper system thread so i can get peoples opinions and ideas!!
That's one smart set-up....ENJOY!!!!
Nice all black set up.
Nice one John, very stylish, slick looking system. No doubt it sounds as good as it looks too, well done and congrats !!
Thanks everyone!! 1 or 2 more pics on my other thread any opinions gratefully received both good and bad!!
the only thing i'd consider doing would be to move that sub to the left of the floorstander and get a long short white lacquered unit to replace the black one. something to contrast the black so it pops out more. so a unit something like this one:
oh, and maybe a new lick of paint on the walls...
regardless what you do though that is a really nice setup you have there. congrats!
But I would put the laptop on the other side of the center speaker. That sub has a pretty big magnetic field and could destroy the laptop's harddrive (unless the sub is magnetically shielded)
Thanks lads not sure if the sub is magnetically shielded...... The sub would certainly look better away from the rx s but space is at a premium on that wall (doors on both sides of the rx s) The cabinet looks excellent but would be too wide for the space. To get the fronts and sub in would mean the speakers would be jammed right in the corner. The house is a country cottage and to keep the theme of the building- oaks and black(fireplace is black with black woodburning stove)
The room is brand new and has just been painted
Keep them coming lads, Anything else??
Very nice John1000000boy, love the all black theme p.s. not too dissimilar of a layout to my own, the only thing i would suggest is the bluray player....then sit back & feel all cheesy with your new toy's & ENJOY
all the best, Benny.
