    Some cracking set ups. :)

    My setup, Panasonic 42" plasma, Panasonic VCR, Panasonic DVD, Virgin HD, X-Box 360 sound courtesy of an old Technics surround sound system with an additional subwoofer. Not a patch on some but my ex had a serious dislike to me actually enjoying the money I earned.

    Lounge (recently done to allow more floor space for the little one and more importantly to keep Daddies kit out of reach lol)

    I'll have a go too. All 'add-ons' like blu-ray, play station, sky box etc in a reclaimed oak unit just to the left of the fire. 48" Phillips Plasma. The wire is for the Wii sensor.

    I must say there are some enviable setups here :drool:

    Statutory Panny plasma with Onkyo 875 THX AV amp pushing 5.1 to Dynaudio Audience speaker system and Focal sub.

    Room is far to small to do the system justice (hence why TV is not wallmounted and the kit is squashed together), but one day when we get round to finding a house with a decent size living room it will all come good.

    Same TV stand as dub demand by the looks of things.
    - Panny 46" G10
    - B&W 685 Fronts, Linn Classik Unik Center and Rears, Linn Classik Affekt sub
    - Onkyo 606 Receiver
    - PS3 for BD / DVD / Streaming movies from NAS
    - Apple TV (used mainly for streaming music from PC, occasionally for movies)
    - Project RPM-Genie turntable
    - Squeezebox Classic (Largely unused - server software was always a bit buggy on NAS, and it needs a new remote :( )

    Some lovely looking systems here especially yours Scar, probably the perfect living room!! ;)

    This ones mine.....not quite finished as I plan to change the speakers for some Cambridge Audio Lusso's or something similar. I am also contemplating changing the now old LCD Samsung 40" for a newer 46" Samsung LED with a thinner frame (not bothering with 3D until they are glasser'less), very much a work in progress.

    So far I have

    Samsung 3D Blu ray player (with live services)
    Samsung 40" LCD 1080i
    Samsung 20" LED monitor (CCTV)
    Standard sky+ box (will be upgraded to HD once i get the LED 1080P)
    Sony 7.1 AMP and Kenwood speakers/sub
    Xbox + Kinect
    CCTV HDD (hard drive) to be encased in a metal unit soon for obvious reasons
    oh and LED lighting which changes colours :)

    All ran from a Logitec Harmony 650 remote....

    Behind I have a Netwgear router box which is hard wired to my router and running cabling to the DVD (for lovefilm instant downloading) and the Xbox for live services.

    Nice little setup you've got there mate (sorry for the late reply). Is that a vintage jukebox you've got sitting in the corner? If so it's beautiful!

    A 1975, 7" vinyl playing lovely.
    I love it, sadly its only the 80watt version not the 120watt.
    It need to get the coin mech working and it would be perfect.

    Some really nice sets up here.

    I love the floating wall. that is stunning.

    Not quite a TV, nor quite a living room....
    [​IMG]

    This was my uni room setup last year. 22" Iiyama LED monitor in the middle (which I should probably have paused the film to do justice to). Onkyo 605 on the right, a couple of Wharfdale Diamond 9.1s either side: all being run from my PC's TV card (just visible bottom right), xbox (out of shot) or Macbook (on desk).

    No subwoofer or 5.1, nor a massive TV - but considering the room is 12ft square, I had plenty of power and screen space. The curtains let the side down a little, I feel.

    I'm not sure it's worth showing off but here goes...(excuse the pics, taken on phone)

    Pioneer PDP42 something or other plasma
    Sky HD
    Sony PS3 (used for Bluray too)
    B&W speakers but the fronts are some awful RTL TDL2 things on loan from my Dad at the moment as I had an accident with the others. Soon to be replaced by a pair of Focal Profile 918
    Yamaha RX-V767 AV Amp (bought recently and quite pleased with the HD format decoding for bluray etc)
    Arcam A80 Stereo Amp (has a handy bypass function to allow me to listen to stereo music without using the AV amp but still powers the front L&R channels for AV)
    Marantz CD-63SE CD player (retro!)

    All controlled with a Logitech Harmony One (to save having 72 remote controls littering the place)

    ....oh and one black moggy called Bo ;)

    Unfortunately I can't show you my proper set up anymore. Since moving out I had to leave mt hifi as there just isn't enough room in the flat :crying:

    So I'll just have to list it.

    Sony LDL-32w4000 (this sickens me as i paid £1100 for it when it came out, top of the range, now it's £350!!) so cannot bring myself to upgrade until OLED hits the big screens!
    cambridge audio 540d DVD player
    Cyrus 6 cd player and ampx
    Kimber speaker cable, mains leads and iPod lead.
    Lake audio speakers - you cannot get these anymore, a very limited run then the company went bust, but truly areon par with PROACS and are truly immense, these now reside on my dads stereo so will get a pick when I go home. The 125cm tall, weigh 14kg each!

    I know use the TV and DVD player, but with a Geneva audio labs L iPod dock. Superb piece of kit!
