Some of you guys may remember some of these pictures from my old thread. As that thread was quite old and unable to be updated i decided to go ahead and start a new thread as i have added some new components and furniture.

I want to be the first to say in no-way what so ever do i think or feel my system is any better then anybody else's and i don't want to post on here and brag to say i have got this i have got that. I simply want to express my joy in getting to a point where i can be proud of what i have and how i went about archiving it.

My main living room is essentially an open area that attaches to the dining and kitchen areas. Not an ideal way to have a theatre room set-up but we all have to make sacrifices along the way. The room had to be liveable each day and not feel that cluttered. I think my wife and i have archived this.

AV:
Sony KDL46X3100 100hz Full HD 46" LCD TV
Toshiba HD E1 HD DVD Player ( Got this for $80AUD new )
Sony 40 gig PS3 ( Freebie with TV )
Nintendo Wii
Xbox 360 Pro HDD Removed

Sound:
Sony STRDA3400 ES AV Reciever
Dali Ikon Vokal ( Center )
Dali Concept 6 ( Fronts )
Dali Concept 1 ( Rears )
Jensen QX85 10 subwoofer.

And when it all goes together it looks like this:

This room is my little hideaway. I am so lucky to have a wife that allows me space where I can run off and do things without distracting anybody. I call it the "Games Room" which put simply it is, mixed in with the office side of it.

The kit in this room cossets of;

AV

LG 32lg30d 32" HD LCD TV
Xbox 360 Arcade with HDMI Output and 20gb HDD ( HDMI to TV )
PS3 Slim with 250GB HDD ( HDMI to TV )
Play TV
Super Nintendo ( AV to TV )

Sound

Logitech Z680 Surround Sound system ( feed optical from TV )

Office

Apple i5 27" iMac
WD 1.5tb USB HDD ( Time Machine Backup )
iPad Dock
Cannon MP270 printer
64gb iPad ( original wait to number three for next update )
16gb iPhone 4s black

Pics as follows;











The not so comfy couch;



and its replacement that gets pulled out when needed;

Fantastic, really like these rooms; exactly my taste! Love the fact you've still got a snes in pride of place too!

Can I ask a quick question? Where is the main AV rack in your lounge from (the tall one on the right hand side that houses the consoles, amp etc)?

I want to know about the rack too :) and hopefully if I can find it in Walnut.

Hi guys and thanks for your comments. The rack is actually a bookshelf. As I live in Australia it might be hard to find but I got it from office works here.

Ah! Thanks for that, guess I'll have to continue my search. I'll start looking at bookshelves though, that's a great tip!

We where very lucky with it, we took all measurements of our gear and took the largest measurements with us as a guide. The only work needed was to buy a circular drill bit and drill some holes into the thin backing that these things have.

Go to places that you wouldn't normally go to for furniture, i got that rack and the table in the games room from an office supplies store.

Hope that helps a little bit more.

Your games room is smart.

I like the retro gaming.

The desk , mac and chair really smart.

My only mild criticism would be you need a 50" TV. I think 50 is the new 42 !

Are yes in due time my friend. The next plan is to find a new place. I will have a dedicated room there that can be shut away, so defiantly a 50 or larger when the time comes.

Thanks for your comments Phil

I love those Sony TVs, they look great. Awesome set up and I too would be interested to where you get the AV rack? Looks like a cut down Ikea unit but I've never seen one of such a convenient size.

The av rack is actually a book shelf. I got it from a office supplies store. I am from Australia so it may not be available in the uk. We hunted for a while to try and find a proper av rack, we took measurements of everything that we had, and with those measurements where able to find that particular stand.

Sorry I can't be of any more assistance.

a/v rack looks very similar to the Ikea BESTA units you can get at the moment, I've been fancying one myself.

Edit - ignore that, just read your post further up
