About 9yrs ago I thought whilst cleaning in the loft what a wasted space it was. I had recently began adding a stereo amp and speakers to the TV in the lounge, hmm I thought whilst walking through WHSmiths, a home cinema mag, I think there was only a couple at the time. Prologic was all the rage and laser disc was all the rage. Anyway so the construction began. Almost a year later I bought my first pj a sharp XV350. low resolution 100 to 1 contrast ratio, but oh boy 5ft picture. The audio side of things started with a Yamaha DSP A2070 A huge amp bought second hand at Image HIFI here in wakefield. Its closed now but those guys knew a thing or to about hifi. Then came the news of a new format DVD. I got down to the sony centre here and ordered one of the first six machines to come to wakefield a black 540 cant remember exact model number, it did cost me 540 quid though. The price of discs also came as a shock 24.95 for jumanji, did get jerry mcguire free with player though. Have nearly 400 now how time flies. Upgraded the pj this year to the panasonic 700, all HD ready, and a vast jump in quality. The dvd also now is a pioneer 668 with HDMI to the pj. Theres also a freeview via RGB and the quality of digi tv is excellent. The audio is taken care of by a Denon 3802 AV receiver which runs 7 X 105watts a channel. Its set up for 6.1 though. This is connected via biwired front soundstage of mission 7332 and a mission 75c. the rears are 3X 731s. Bringing out the bass is a REL Strata 2.
