Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Thanks JTD! I bought the ButtKicker from Sevenoaks in Sheffield. You can even buy it from here.

Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Wow Big Boss.  That is a fantastic looking room and a fantastic system.  You must be very proud.  It really looks great. 

Love the way your speakers and kit is hidden away.  You don't even have any untidy cables.

I must admit I have never heard of a buttkicker.  But I now intend to research one.

Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Thanks Barnsleydave! Although, the wires for the lamp & spotlight still bother me a bit.........can't do anything about that.


Some specialist hi-fi shops can offer you a demo of the buttkickers. If you live in Barnsley (is that your surname?), Sevenoaks Sound and Vision in Sheffield can offer you a demo.

Yes I live in Barnsley (someone has to).  Might be worth a trip out.  I like demoing stuff.  Big Smile

I liked your ikea lights around your TV too.  I wouldn't mind some of those.  As my TV isn't up against the wall I wonder whether I will lose the effect.  Did you just attach it to the TV, or does it need attaching to a wall?

Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Well, you're not alone.....even I live in Barnsley!


I've attached the ikea lights on the back of the TV. I'm not sure if you'll get the effect if your TV is not against the back wall.


Sevenoaks has now moved into the Ponsford store......definitely worth a trip out.............drool over the beautiful Loewe TVs! Stick out tongue, although not a patch on Kuro.

Yes, the TV is a bit high, but my sofa is such that the TV comes naturally in the line of vision....so no neck sprains. Had to keep the fireplace and work around it, as per my better half's orders. The centre speaker had to be placed above the TV for this very reason.

Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Very nice setup big boss. Looks very neat and tidy. Like other people have said, you seem to have got the lighting level just about right. Must be very enjoyable watching films in a room like that. Who was your installer? and who made the units around the fire, because they look some of the best I have seen.


Very very nice, well done.

Thanks Miggs. I love lights. That's why I've put different lights at different levels, & am able to dim the main light with my Harmony remote to achieve that perfect lighting for watching films etc. Sevenoaks Sound and Vision Sheffield were the AV installers & the furniture was made by Neville Johnson.

Re: My Home Cinema Setup

Could I ask you what ButtKicker components you have and how they are connected. I see a wireless option on their website but this looks like an American only product. Does it vibrate your sofa or something else?
