Home Cinema/Hifi Room Setup

I've moved house recently and managed to get a room for all my toys.  There have been some changes since I last posted too.

The Start...

Kit List

Samsung F86 46 inch TV

Monitor Audio Platinum PL100's (left and right)
Monitor Audio Platinum PLC350 (centre)
Monitor Audio PLW15 subwoofer
Monitor Audio Apex A10's (rear)

Onkyo TX-NR905 acting as a pre-amplifier for centre, left and right.  Amplifier for rears.
Leema Acoustics Pyxis
Leema Acoustics Hydra II - driving the PL100's
Leema Acoustics Hydra I - biamping the PLC350

Virgin HD Tivo
Sony BDP-S5000ES
Xbox 360
Playstation 3
Nintendo Wii
Apple iMac running Channel D's Pure Music

Van Damme cables (phono and speaker)
Wireworld USB cable

The greatest challenge with the room was taming the echo from the tiled floor.  The fabric sofa (which arrived today) has managed that as there was a bit of mid-range "boom" when listening to the hi-fi.

Really chuffed!

Very nice, i'm so jealous, if that was my room i would probably have a projector in their aswell as the size of the room makes your tv look small.:clap:

That's some nice kit.

But you seriously need to get yourself a projector setup.

You're doing it wrong. Use the image insert button (the little tree icon) and copy and paste the image URLs, quote my first reply and then disable rich-text to see the difference in the code (if you're interested that is).

RE: Home Cinema/Hifi Room Setup

I'm debating the projector/massive TV conundrum at the moment.  It'll cost me about the same to install a projector as it would a 60/65 inch TV.  I'm still recovering from the financial mauling that buying a house inflicts so it'll probably be the middle of next year before I decide.  Even the girlfriend has said the TV looks small so it's definitely going to happen!

Thanks for the help with the pictures.

It also looks a little high, be better mounted more at seated eye height.

I like the light-fitting, where does that come from?

EDIT: and the pictures, I like the pictures, where are they from?

You have a good eye.  The TV is mounted high as we measured up in anticipation of a much larger screen and compensated for it.

The light fittings are from Debenhams online.

The canvases are all from Ebay.  The Batman and Joker pictures were painted for me by a friend.

Oh cool! Wish I had friends like that. Correction: I wish I still had friends like that...

RE: Home Cinema/Hifi Room Setup

:O :O :O  WOW , that is sooooome setup you have there, mate ... Room looks fantastic - every boy`s dream Smile 

Seems inevitable that you`ll be getting a bigger screen ( projector or TV , whatever you decide ) , and then it will be spot-on .

And that Center Speaker looks huuuuge . I`ve seen the M.Audio Platinums , they look the deal, and probably sound even better

 Well Done :clap:
