    very nice :thumbsup:

    the beanbags are a bit strange tbh, as i have one the same!

    they seem awkward and uncomfy, but if you get the position just right you dont want to move :D i recently watched the LOTR EE's using the beanbag and i was fine (bear in mind i was on it for around 11 hours:eek: )

    The beanbags are 7 feet long the only trouble with them is that I keep falling asleep.(I work too hard).They are very comfy if you fold them they make sort of a chair shape.The pc is a HTPC built by myself.
    Will get some more pics of equipment in the room if any one is interested

    Its served me very well over the last six years.I also have a yamaha DSP-AX1 and a denon AVR-3805.Both are very capable amps but IMO the big AVC-A1SE always has the edge.The sammy's the 40" version to give you an idea of the scale of the room

    Ill be honest, mines only being used as a pre amp, a bit of a waste realy, but it does sound excellent, and a vast array of inputs including the DD rf for the laser discs.

    Yhe remote is a bit dodgy however :rotfl:
