Home Cinema on a budget.

I've been working on the wife for years to let me dip my toe in the water of a "cinema" setup and finally I got the green light.

Now I was on a budget and it's not going to set the world alight but hey ho.

Setup is:

Panasonic TX-P50GT50
Panasonic DMP-BDT220
Sony STR-DH820
Mission 702e (Bi-Amped)
Mission 77e center
Misson 700 rears

Paradigm PDR 10
Van Damme Blue series cabling
Sky HD
Belkin HD Bluetooth receiver

Virgin Media 50mb broadband

It's a bit of a mix but I got the receiver and speakers all second hand.

thats the way mate, now you've started you can just add and upgrade when possible. Sure beats the inbuilt tv speakers.
