    Nice set-up.

    Need to move that clock so it is more central, driving me nuts.

    Man, it's not mine, it's what I would love to have. But that room is bigger than the whole downstairs of my house.

    And as much as the wife loves me, she ain't gonna let me do that.

    I will take a pic of my tv later, it aint all that though lol

    Here are mine.

    Kitchen/dining room;
    42" Panasonic plasma
    Sky HD 1Tb
    Nintendo Wii
    Sony Blu-ray
    Apple TV v1

    We currently use this room more for tv watching during the week, hence the larger capacity Sky box in this room rather than the lounge.

    [​IMG]

    Lounge;
    50" Panasonic plasma
    Sky HD
    PS3
    Panasonic Blu-ray
    Apple TV v2
    Onkyo receiver running some old Sony speakers with dual subwoofers

    [​IMG]

    I am looking into replacing the TV in the lounge with something larger, preferably 60"+, but there doesn't seem to be much out at the moment. At the moment I'm leaning towards the Panasonic 65VT30 plasma.

    Two words. Absolutely beautiful. I like your style very minimalistic and classy. Panasonic make the best "TV's in the world period. I was going to buy the Panasonic 65VT30 but to be honest at the time it was a little out of my price range (recession).

    Cheers, have just had the flooring changed to tiles in the kitchen/dining room as it was half carpet, half lino before and looked ****, it's much cleaner looking now.
    Have just wall mounted the lounge tv and now have to get a new stand in there as it is very faded on top from where the tv was stood on it for so long.

    The 65VT30 is still more than I would ideally like to pay, but there are so few 60" tvs out at the moment that its seems like that or nothing, and 55" just doesn't seem a worthwhile upgrade.

    I love pioneer TV's. Nice set up mate.
    Maybe you should go for a 7.1 instead because there's not much difference in price now days.

    Looks like you've got a nice 40" LCD there, that's what i had before i bought my 63" but shame about the quality of the pic because it's blurry you can't see it properly.

    The picture was taken on my Iphone 3g so thet explains the poor quality :laugh: Your set-up looks tramendous, i like the simple lay out, no clutter to distract from the screen,

    My screen is a series 6 with the black rose surround, and the blue led lighting changes through 7 other colours, im pleased with how it worked out and was good value aswell as i done it all myself.

    Just took a quick snap of my hodgepodge:

    [​IMG]

    Panasonic TX-P42S20 42" Plasma
    Sky HD
    HTPC inside an XBox1 casing
    Panasonic 5.1 Amp and Centre Speaker
    Soundstyle Z1i Speaker Stands, with some crappy JVC speakers on top
    Wii + External HDD

    Theres also a WIFI access point thats snuck on the corner of the TV stand adding to the jumble and a WiiFit board tucked underneath.

    All a bit of a mess, but slowly building up the decent quality parts. Next item on the cards for an upgrade is the Speakers, i'm looking at probably picking up some used B&W 602's or similar.

    Cheers, and yes it is the WiiFit tucked underneath :p The missus seems to enjoy dancing around on it.

    I should probably have tidied up the random car parts laying on the floor, and squared up the speaker and other bits before taking the photo shouldnt i!?

    Would say its a pretty simple setup, didnt want big and bulky in the lounge hence the IS10 with its golf ball sized speakers, would love to have the room for a bigger setup (7.1 HD amp) with better placement of speakers, next house maybe.

    Lounge:

    Bedroom is aimed more around listen to music but again didnt want to go down the multi unit route hence the teac amp (all in one)

    Loving to see everyone set up!

    I must take picture of my set up and put on this. But not at the moment! I am too busy to clean the table at the moment! (I live on my own and I have high social life!)

    Also I am awaiting for engineer to sort issue of my LG TV in my bedroom as it didnt have any a wall mount bars inside the TV as its should have a screw at rear to fit the wall mount bracket but there is no screw at all! (apparently faulty TV but they sorting it for free since its so new!)

    When both are sorted and I will take picture in pride! I aboustely adore my techy stuff!

    I'm starting to feel slightly intimidated by all these Panasonic tv's (Lol). As i said before Panasonic make the best TV's in the world (No Ego). Quality set up mate. If you have access to another camera then i would love to see some more pics.
