    HI Folks',
    interesting one here...I bought an electric fire last Thursday for my home cinema room, now, the only place I could plug it into was in my 4 way socket (which also holds amp, dvd and cd player...).

    I was watching bit of Moulin Rouge - and the sound was so much warmer! I don't know if it was the weed, but wow, it sounded much better than pre-fire...
    I also rented 'pay it forward' (average film, but had potenial!) - that sounded great too!
    CDs were great too - tho, I wasn't playing them very loud, just background music...

    but surely this goes against the grain..?

    any comments welcome...

    I'll have another listen tonight...:cool:

    You may also get more clarety, although it depends on the age of the claret.

    Is it safe to use your electric fire through your mains block ?
    Could it overload it, adding yet more unintentional warmth to your room, plus realistic fire engine sounds ?

    Would the fire engine sounds be DTS or DD?

    The DTS sound will be a little louder, a bit more well defined, and should have much more bass to it ;) Mind you, it might depend on which region of fire engine you get.
