After a few days of work, I have now finished my setup for the time being Before work began, this is how the room looked. Looking from the screen end towards the seating end: It's a dark picture, but you can see the desk with the 2 PCs along the left hand side of the picture. Looking towards the screen end of the room: Lots of junk here, including my rather large homebuilt arcade machine. Unfortunately it's too big, so I'm going to have to take it apart Finally, here's where the equipment will sit: It currently houses a book shelf that's stuffed to the gils with books, software and other assorted bits and bobs. It too will have to go. So, a bit of work with a paintbrush, and this is what we end up with... The seating area: The blind is blackout material, and works really well. The walls at this end of the room are painted in HomeBase Lapis Blue. A slightly lighter shade than the other end of the room. The desk will soon house the 2 PCs, so I didn't want it to be too gloomy. On the wall you can see a couple of KEF 2005.2 Eggs. Looking at the screen end: I slapped on a couple of coats of white paint, and the front speakers are just sitting on the floor for now. Once I get my own projector and know where the screen will be located, they will be wall mounted. Then there's the equipment shelf: The Denon 1803 receiver, Tosh 330 DVD player, and the 2005.2 sub. I shall be putting up a few shelves for the DVD player and the DVDs at the weekend. The sub will eventually move, but this is a handy place for it to sit at the moment. The paint at this end is Dulux Atlantic Surf 1. Finally, the equipment in action: The projected image is 5ft wide (about the most I can really get away with in this room). The projector is a Sony CPL-VX5 and it's hooked up to the Tosh with an S-Video cable. Still plenty to do though. Once I get my own projector (the Sony is borrowed from work) I'll ceiling mount it, decide what to do about the screen, wall mount the front speakers, and put the cabling in trunking. Oh, I also need to sort lighting as well. But for now, I'm amazed! I really should have done this sooner!
