    Hello all AV enthusiastic!!

    After lots and lots of reading this great site and yours posts and a hell of a lot of money and hard work we have finally got our new brought house into a home where but still lots to do, so far we have had to gut out literally the whole house and start from bare walls and concrete flooring, its been a roller coaster but wanted to share with you all since you all gave me so many ideas along the way and i am very grateful. Please do share your thoughts with me as i would like to hear from you..

    Next get a small AV setup in kitchen dining area just TV and maybe some old Cyrus audio i have lying around the house with some castle speakers, addition to this put up lightings around the house apart from living room where i have spot lights...

    Thanks for viewing my post!

    First gutted out the whole living room to bare walls – so many cracks found around the whole house ended up skimming every single wall in house including ceilings, god this was a big job!

    Now the fun begins!

    Made two rooms from one, so on one side i have made a libary and music room, one the other side i have tried to make a living TV room.
    Below is my HiFi rig – Cyrus IIIi, Cyrus Dad3, Cambridge Audio 540p, the monster Sony N3000ES (running only 2 channel stereo), and Rega Planer 3 with 2m black and Monitor Audio and Van del Hul ClearTrack speaker wires. Let me know your thoughts would be great to here them, would like upgrade my IIIi to a proper Pre-amp.
