    Right I'll skip the "history" of my setup as it's mainly boring, and I'll get to the interesting part:

    Equipment list:
    Display:
    Panasonic TX24A1 TV

    Sources:
    Toshiba SD220E DVD Player
    Akai VCR
    Pace DTR210T Freeview Box
    Home-made HTPC - See here for a worklog
    Nintendo Gamecube

    Amplification and output:
    Sherwood RD6118R Dolby Digital/DTS Receiver
    Technics SU-Z65 subwoofer amplifier
    Monitor Audio Bronze B2 main speakers
    Yamaha NS-C120 centre speaker
    Eltax HT-2 Micro rear speakers
    Home-made 12" Subwoofer - See here for a worklog

    For a relatively budget bedroom system I love it :D It does everything I need to, sounds great and has more than enough power.

    I am particularly proud of my HTPC and Subwoofer efforts :)

    Looks good to me although I'm not sure if your CD catalogueing system is very effective, I find them easier to look at when they're not on the wall ;)

    I particularly like that the cables for your rears are very discreet, and the sub of course! Do you find that it booms in it's 3-way corner? :)

    I've moved the wardrobe away from the sub a bit to give it more space. But it doesn't sound boomy, no.

    Yeh the rear cables are not too noticeable. The cable for the speaker pictured goes down into the curtain rail as you can see, then it's hidden by the curtain and radiator till it hits the trunking :) The cable for the other rear goes up through the roof :p
