Hello everyone, Just thought I would introduce myself into the forum as I will probably be using quite a lot in the future. I have been in to home cinema for a while starting with a Sony 28" widescreen when they first came out and hooked it up to an Aiwa pro-logic midi-system ( still in use ). I now use a 41" sony rear projection set ( about 5 years old now ) fed from a samsung DVD player and still using the Aiwa for sound. I bought my first house three years ago and the garage has been crying out to be converted to a cinema room for ages. The way house prices have risen I am in the fortunate position to use a little equity and build my cinema. Work started on the coversion at Easter and is almost finished. Anyone interested can see the before and after pics here www.techno-freak.com The finished room will measure 16' x 9'. As I am overseeing the builders I have been able to hide all the cables in the walls and cieling ready for the equipment install. I have just ordered the first components for the cinema:- Panasonic PTAE300 Owl Othello Homevision 7' electric screen. Got them from AV-Sales.com and they are arriving on Tuesday - can't wait. Any comments on the Panny and the Owl screen would be appreciated. I got a bargain on some Eltax speakers. I know they perhaps are'nt the best speakers around but my local retailer screwed up thier prices - I got a pair of Galaxy floor standers and Milenium centre and rears for the grand total sum of £87. hmmm, not bad. They will no doubt get upgraded within the year but I could'nt pass up a deal like that. I am looking to get a mount from LMP for the panny, they look like well made bits of kit. I just need a Sub, active or passive? for about £150 A multi-region DVD player An Amp. I am thinking about a Yamaha DSPAX630 for £229 from Richer Sounds. I have no idea what sub and DVD player to go for. Anyone had any experience of this amp? Any good? I will keep my website up to date with pics of the install if anyone is interested. Thanks, Tony.
