    As we all await Joel's latest episode and things are fairly quiet otherwise (the suns shining and I'm in the garden!), I was wondering if we would have a another little list thread like we used to on the old TAG forum (you know top ten CD's, films, stupid moments etc.) so as I've just plugged in the 24th mains plug in my hi-fi cabinet I was wondering just how many mains outlets other people have for their system.
    Actually make that 27 if I include the sub, screen and projector..... :eek:

    So how many do you have?

    If the Sony Dog counts I've just made it 28.... Only 4 holes left to fill now......
    The wife threatened to plug the hoover in one, I won't tell you where she threatened to put the other end...... I appear to have taken too much time over the install...... :rolleyes:

    A poor man's 9......

    SME 10, T32R, DVD32FLR, AV32R, PPA20, 250x3R, 100x5R, Sony TV, Pronto.

    That's it!

    BTW, ever since I got the SME 10 (two weeks ago), I barely listen to CDs, good as the FLR is at them, jazz is made for vinyl, methinks!

    Now, just whar arm to replace the stopgap RB300? OL Illustrious, SME V or Graham 2.2? Doubts, oh doubts....

    GrahamMG, please don't mind my saying so, but that's sick......

    Ok, I didn't bother to mention the cordless phone, so add one to my count.

    And if I add my home pc network (which I use for work, since I have a home based business) I will win hands off, no argument........ Just for my workstation there's 12......

    But all that is upstairs, so I didn't bother.....

    Not at all, just mad.....

    BTW, the home network is on another 20A circuit and not in the hi-fi cabinet.....(4 off NAS, 2 off Switches, 4 off IP cameras, Wireless router, hardware firewall, 3 off PC's and 3 laptops etc.......). Obviously the pj, screen and dog are not in the hi-fi cabinet but just about everything else is and they are all plugged into the inside of the cabinet..... In the old days I posted a picture of the cabinet and a few mentioed it had room for "expansion" well its full now.......

    See, I'm not the only one supporting the local LEB...... :D Go on Nic, give us your list, I remember you had quite a collection of "not your average" bits....
    I won't ask if your DVD32R is working yet......

    Kenny, pictures..... When I've finished painting the walls mate and fitting my new engine, so much to do so little time......
