I gave all my old stuff away and decided to start again with mine, I tried to do mine on the cheep with a dedicated room and bought many things on here (most tbh) however I fear her indoors would still be astonished (looks behind him).....

JVC X5000 (AVForums with new bulb) - £1500
JVC 3D kit and 2x glasses (AVForums) - £50
Sapphire 92" electric screen (eBay - small mark) £100
Kef Q4 (eBay - mains) - £90
Kef Q100 (AVForums - surround rears) - £100
3 X Kef Ci130QR ceiling (new - center and surrounds) -£510
4 X Kef Ci130ER ceiling (new - Atmos) - £400
Yamaha RXV-2067 (AVForums - used as a power amp now) - £250
Yamaha RXA-3050 (AVForums) - £500
Sony X800 UHD player (AVForums) - £120
Nvidia shield (eBay) - £100
Harmony Elite (new) £120
Mac Pro circa. 2012 plus HDDs (eBay - Plex server) - £700
Cables (new) - £350
Materials for rack - £100
Materials for bulkhead/spotlights/paint £250

That's around £4840 all in plus my time to build the bulkheads in the ceiling etc, install everything and paint. It does not include all the tools (approx £1K) and I'm very happy with it but still need a sub or two to go with the current 7.0.4 setup.

Hard to answer accurately, but with the Storm Amp, Lumagen, Ls10500, Neo-S screen, and the paradigm sub 1 it’s at least £20k.

Thats before the fronts and rears (maybe another £5k), and previous models including Arcam 550, velodyne dd12+, paradigm sub 25, dual velodyne something’s, Sony 4k projector, JVC x500...

That doesn’t include building and extending and furnishing the dedicated room right enough. So maybe £30k

Far too much!!.lol..wouldn't change it for the world though, worth every penny.

Kef T105 package £1200
×4 Kef T series speaker stands £200
×4 cambridge audio minx speakers £150
BK sub £220
Epson EH-TW7400 £1400
Marantz SR6012 £750
Samsung 4k spinner £300

Probably another £2000 to turn the spare room into our dedicated room( currently used as a bedroom again for the time being :mad: lol)

Your plan diagram looks impressive. Could you share how it was done. Did you use architect to draw it?
Hi,

Its a steelwork modelling program that I use for my business. But its quite adaptable and was a bit of fun drawing it and a good record of my distances
Cheers

Tell you what, if you send me your room dimensions and a list of your equipment, I'll put one together for you.

Great, Many thanks for your generous offer. I will be happy to accept:)
Although it could be challenging as I have a 7.2.6 Atmos setup! Currently the speakers placement is not very optimised but rather placed where it is convenient!!
I will do some room measurements and send you the details.

$4,250 for the OLED, AVR and 5.1.2 Klipsch setup. Also not included is another $500 for an old AVR and $600 for old plasma. 💸

I think my current kit excluding build, velvet etc, is probably quite a bit, but it's been evolution over 10-15 years . I bought my naim 135's when they were £1,200 a pair, four pairs so about £5k, my Sonus Faber speakers have cost about £12-15k over the years, recent PJ, Lumagen and Panasonic 9000 approx £10k, screen £2k including masking. I will be spending over or under £10k on a new processor. I've made my own cables, stretched velvet and mounted screen and PJ myself, so I don't over spend and I haven't lost any money on speaker and amps. By the time I'm done it will be over £40k, I think.

When I move I will probably move from repurposed HiFi to Cinema kit, depending on room size etc. Seems 'crazy' but people will blow £10k a year on car depreciation. So £40k over 10+ years is only £4k per year or £300 a month. Adjust for the retained value and I bet it's only £150 a month or £40 a week (I used to spend that on coffee when I worked in town !), I love my Cinema and look forward to putting a film on Friday nights

Oh... crikey.

Panasonic 65 DX902- £3000
Panasonic UHD player - £300
Marantz 7010 - £1000
LCR MK IW150 - £3600
MK K4 (ebay) - £60
DIY rears - £100
Ceiling speakers - £200
DIY 15" sub - £500
iNuke 3000DSP for above - £200
MK V12 sub (ebay) - £600
Nakamichi AVP1 (AVF classifids) - £200


£9760.

Add in remote / cables and it'd be a nudge over £10K.

Honestly, I'd do it again. We watch a film as a family probably twice a week and the kids love it.
