Come on Sony owners, show off your stuff here!

Just an effort to raise the Sony talk round here, I can't be the only one with a Sony!
just got myself a sony kep42m1s and it is awesome...will post pics asap.
Just put a KDE-P37XS1 on order after viewing one today - I couldn't believe the analogue picture, for a plasma!......I just hope I get as good a pic when it arrives.
Here's my Sony KE32TS2 effort.
'Chimney' built first, couldn't face chasing the walls!
All cables are inside the chimney in a cable rack, power has it's own route, away from the signal cables to prevent and nasties.
My AV Rack, Alphason kit.
Hope you like it!
Hi Dr. Downey,
I thought that I was the only one with this Sony, and I'm in Australia. Very happy with the P.Q. especially the RGB output from the LG STB.
LG 4100P Set Top Box
KEF KHT 2.5 Eggs and Sub
Onkyo 600E Receiver
I cant find any information on the web regarding the Sony...do you know of any, especially where I can get hold of the Service manual.
Cheers from down under
Hi there Oh boy,
That's exactly why I started this thread, so little mention of such a great product.
I'm also looking for a service manual, will let you know if I find one!
Dr Dr ... How did you get the stand off?
There are 2 pairs of screws on the back of the screen, close to the base.
Unscrew the screws, and then ease the base from the screen. It's quite a snug fit, so it has to come off square.
Thanks for the info. That will come in useful in a few months when it goes to its new home.
Just got to figure out how to hide those cables now.
Don't you get neck strain watching that!!
Good luck with the cable hiding, that's the worst bit!!!!!! What did you have in mind?
we make unwanted guests sit on that sofa, Photo was taken from the normal viewing position. Can actually watch the telly from the garden on the decking though the patio doors. Just haven't broached the subject of outdoor speakers to the missus yet .
As for the cables, I keep changing my mind about it. Chasing out the walls seems like really hard work and its my first Home Cinema setup so I'm still fiddling with and changing cables (gone through 3 different scarts and onto a component cable trying stuff out), conduit and its derivatives are all ugly and not acceptable to the wife. She wants me to put up coving to hide the rear speaker cables, thats a battle I'm going to lose soon.
I know the feeling! I got the plasma on the back of saving space in the room, then she who must be obeyed decided that afireplace was required, then she decided that we needed new seating and wanted to cange the 3 piece for 2 x 2 seater sofas, got to the shop, she bought the sofas, plus a armchair , I don't know why I bother!
Some of the guys have used aluminium trunking to put the cables through, I'm told it's from B&Q, but I can't be any more specific. You could split the power and the signal cables and put a length down each side as if it is what's holding the plasma up I suppose? I've seen a few sets like that and it can look ok.
Have fun with the coving! You might have been better off taking the skirting board off and cutting a channel in it to put the speaker cables in!
nice tidy set up dr!
Hi again Dr Downey,
Thanks for the reply, if I find any more info, I will post you.
Very nice set up you have, top idea you had flush mounting the Sony
I have a Marantz DVD player which outputs progressive, and the P.Q. on Sony is amazing in 520P...very smooth
Look forward to seeing your setup!
