    SCREEN: Sim2 8FT Electric Tab Tensioned (Screen Int)

    Installed by Cymbiosis in Leicester who are excellent. great attention to detail and very proffesional.

    I upgraded from a Lexicon MC-1, Rotel 985 MK II, Cyrus Powers, Sony 44" Rear Pro and B&W 602 S3 sides and rears which I thought was brill.

    The new set-up blows it away !

    Very nice, very much approve of the screen in the bay window setup (like mine ;-) )one day I might be able to afford a tensioned screen, the curl at the edges of my screen drives me nuts (sometimes).

    What brand / model is your centre stand?

    Do you have a TV for casual telly watching?

    Rgds,
    Bruce.

    Thanks Bruce,

    Centre stand is a pair of Atacamma SE 12" placed together. I tried to find a centre stand with no joy and had these left over from my old speakers, came up with the bright idea when I took them out the room for the upgrade and stood them together !

    We have a seperate room with a 32" widescreen CRT and Pioneer XV-DV 990 home cinema in a box system which is used most evenings for casual watching. we also have the same system with A Sony all in one system in the master bedroom.

    We only use the lounge at weekends really for watching films, it is nice to have the electric screen as when we just want music it is out of the way (a real wife pleaser..)

    Wife is also alot happier now all the cables are hidden and wall plates for mains and speakers are so much neater.

    Cheers
    Darren

    The back of that stand is very honest! Screen in bay looks great. Have you thought about putting a pelmet across to hide the screen caseing?

    Sorry for the delay, been on hols :)

    The Rako is faultless, does what is says on the tin !

    I am upgrading it with the Rako IR option so I can operate it from my Pronto remote and can bin the Rako remote (wish I had done this at the start)...
