Hey all,

I finished the Home Cinema part of the room just before Christmas, but i've just unpacked my hi-fi gear and set it back up, after being in storage for a few months, so I figured i'd chuck a few piccies up. Quality of shots probably won't be all that; a decent digital camera is next on my to-do list  Smile

Cheers, buddy.

I've been very lucky in that, purely by fluke, the acoustics in that room are just bang on. I don't think i'd need the panels.

Hi mate,

The cabling for hi fi is Van Damme Studio Blue speaker cables and SIlver high Breed Quintessence interconnects. I gotta admit I was a cable believer when I bought the cabling for the hifi, a few years back. I'm not anymore, so when I had to buy the cabling for the Home cinema, recently, I just went for no-name stuff, for about £2 a meter.

I'll check out your piccies, matey. Have you posted them in this section?

Logitech harmony one. Still seems the ideal choice to me. You have to get used really now but there are frequent good examples on eBay and logitech customer service remains good by all accounts.
