    Finally Finished My Home cinema Setup after spending months reading reviews, getting peoples oppinions etc (i did not Demo anything though simply because i would of had to travel miles to do so) most purchases was simply based on help from this great forum.

    Right It Consists Of:

    Panasonic PWD6 Plasma In Charcoal
    Yamaha RXV-2500 Home Cinema Receiver
    Pioneer DV565A DVD Player
    Nintendo Gamecube
    Kef Q7 Floorstanding Fronts
    Kef Q1 Bookshelf Rears On Stands
    Kef Q6c Centre
    Mission M5DS Surrounds X2
    SVS PCi 20-39 Subwoofer
    Pronto TSU3000 Remote

    Then The HCPC:

    Claritas Home Cinema Case
    Asus A8N Nforce 4 Motherboard
    MSI Geforce 6600GT 128MB Graphics Card (Cooled By Zalman VF700)
    Athlon 64 3500 Processor (Cooled By Zalman CNPS7700)
    Maxtor 300GB Diamondmax 10 SATA Hard Drive
    Plextor 716A DVD-/+ Dual Later DVD Writer
    Seasonic 250Watt Micro ATX PSU (Fan Grilled Removed)

    Cables:

    Mainly QED Silver Aniversary But i used QED Flat Speaker Wire for the surrounds so i could go along the skirting and up the walls easily and fairly discretely,
    I used mid End IXOS Interconects

    Connections:

    I use the Yamaha Reciever to handle most video sources, which is connected into PWD6 via Component to VGA cable.
    DVD Player into receiver Via Component
    Sky + into Receiver Via Component (using the JS RGB To Component Converter box)
    Gamecube into reciever via component
    And PC into Plasma Via DVI


    I Do have a TFT Monitor on a table in front of me for PC use when the plasma is been used for TV etc this is connected to PC Via VGA

    And thats it

    I am really happy with the whole setup and dont think i could of done any better for the money spent :)

    Looks very smart, it seems to fit very well into the "gaps" in your room. Much better than a conventional TV would. Do you have any imaging problems from your left Q7 as the lower driver is partially obscured by the seat? :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the comments :) Usually when we all watch DVDs we move the settee around a little so the speaker is not covered then, although i cant say it sounds any worse when it is covered not that i have noticed anyway

    Thanks for the reply betamac, but mind started glazing over with the techno-talk.
    Is this something that is essential for using a plasma/projector use? Or is it used for improved picture sound decoding?
