    Ive just done mine, nothing special - but have 8x LED spots, some strip effect lighting and 2x Cambridge Audio SS20's back to a Sonos Connect:Amp

    Compact fire rated lamps ~£5ea
    4w LED Lamp replacements for 50w Halogens ~£6ea
    LED striplighting for effect ~few £ per mtr
    SS20's - Auction site £70
    Connect:Amp Auction Site £200

    I would also recommend looking at Monitor Audio ct165, it would also be beneficial depending on what is above the ceiling, to box the speakers in. I did and it actually improved them!

    As far as control of the lighting, I just used switches, on/off and the strip lighting on a dimmer to change the intensity

    Whole room done for sub £400
