    After seeing some amazing setups on here for quite some time I thought I would show my humble setup which I completed on a shoestring budget. I got these items either through clearance at shops, looking through gumtree and looking through the classifieds on this forum

    The Toys

    Television - LG 49ub850v

    Amplifier - Sony STR DN1040

    Gaming - Xbox One with Kinect
    Playstation 4

    Streaming - Apple TV 3
    WDTV Live Hub

    Tablets - ipad 2 & Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1

    The Speakers

    Front Speakers - Mordaunt Short MS 914 (bi amped)

    Centre Speaker - Mordaunt Short Avant 905c (bi wired with a bridge)

    Rear Speakers - Mordaunt Short Alumni

    Subwoofer - Tannoy Sfx

    Pictures to follow tomorrow after I take some good ones

    Thank you for looking at these pictures. This room is our spare room as the missus would not allow this in the lounge as we have another system in there which is more lounge friendly. Other items in the spare room or man cave not shown are 2 ikea detolf cabinets full of Star Wars gentle giant arranged in character order and a large ikea billy bookcase again full of Star Wars collectibles. If any body would like to see these I will upload pics and once again thank you for taking the time to look at my humble system in the box room

    Looks good mate, although I really don't understand why your misses wouldn't want that as the main setup in your lounge, women are very strange creatures aren't they!! Still at least she let you have it in the spare room, better than nothing eh!

    And yes post away with the pictures, there can never be too many pictures of setups, always interesting to see.

    Ok, it's been a while since I updated the page, lots of change in the mancave, sold my Sony strdn1040 amp, replaced the Lg 49ub850v and the big cabinet has gone and replaced with a neater besta unit.

    The new toys:

    Samsung 55js8500 SUHD TV
    Pioneer VSX930 AV receiver
    Onkyo SKH-410 atmos module speakers

    I have had that poster for years, I bought it in the basement of this poster shop at the top of great windmill street in soho, if anybody knows it. Yes they changed the title at the last minute to return as revenge is not a Jedi thing apparently.

    So posters were made, action figures were produced and if you check YouTube there is the Revenge of the Jedi trailer on there, all had to be recalled due to title change but some still got out and that shop in London had one in there basement for £50 so knowing what it was I snapped it up.

    I didn't know that!!!

    Makes perfect sense though as revenge would seem rather 'dark' for Jedi's!
