    Probably a good idea to wall mount your 50" when you get it.
    Feed cables into the wall or use trunking to hide cales going into the screen.
    Have trunking near the skirting boards to hide more cables.
    Get a wider AV rack to house all your future upgrades?

    Just some of my thoughts really.
    By the way, love those speakers.:smashin:

    Beautiful speakers mate but I can't see the Denon 1909 being a good match for them. Really they deserve something more powerful - the 875 as you've mentioned, maybe the Denon 2808 that RS had for £399 or a Yamaha RXV1800 from Hifix from £599.

    Hi ya mate yes your right , Im not 100% on the Receiver yet , Maybe the Onk 875 or Maybe the next one up from the Denon 1909, I Will pop to Sevonoaks in the next couple weeks and listen to some Receivers around £600 / £800 . Dont want to spend anymore than that ,

    Also i will be upgrading my Rack as its to Small for my Receiver , Hence why its on the Floor LOL .


    I was thinking about making some Boxes out of MDF and then spraying them Black & White and then spraying them with Laqua to Finish them off. Im going to give it ago :) Ill keep you all updated with pictures ect . Thank you all for the commants about the speakers , I love them also :clap:

    Well not really mate , I lie at the end of my bed and watch movies so its a good size for now :) and the fact its 1080p is really good as watching football on Sky Sports HD is perfect , But as soon as i have the £2200 for Plasma its going right back as my Pc Monitor :)

    In Asda recently, they had a Sanyo 42" 1080p plasma for £699.:thumbsup: Unfortunately, think they've all gone now, but you don't need to spend £2200 on a plasma. My Panny 50" with Freesat 'only' cost £1599.:smashin:

    I know what you mean mate , But im a Fan of the Plasma's you see , I did have 4280XD and was really happy wit that , The others plasmas just dont do what im after at the moment. £2000 is alot of money but it will be the screen i have for the next 5 years .

    You didn't buy the kuro, o noes. You are really missing out, the 4280XD is in a different league to the sammy 6 series. Downgrade = bad :(

    Still love the speakers though :thumbsup:
