After going round to my friend's house that has a post of his project on this forum I had to do something with my living room, to say that I was impressed with his new home entertainment system was an understatement. See his thread thefathacker My living room is completely different although I took most of, or may I say all his ideas I suppose that's why we have these forums and yes I am very new to all this. Now to start I had to knock down a fireplace that was built for me about 7 years ago by a bricklayer that used 4 bags of cement to build it!! Yes I know I would have been most likely able to build a new house with that amount of cement!!, so as you can quite imagine it took some hard graft to knock it down!! Now I was given advice from my good friend thefathacker to knock down my chimney breast but after the first palaver with the fireplace I really couldn't be bothered as this was only going to be a small project!!, yes I wish I had now but I suppose hindsight got the better of me, never mind. After all the bricks were clear I got a friend round who is a joiner and together we planned and drew out what is hopefully going to be a fantastic looking Home Entertainment System. I've gone with the Samsung LE40A656A LCD T.V I looked at a few different TV's but I really liked this one and it's got good reviews, the bracket I bought will be too wide making the TV stick out to much then making the joiner bring out the floating wall to far, so I need to shop around for a good bracket that has a swivel on it that's not to wide (thick) any ideas links are most welcome thank you. The rest of the cables etc have all arrived and also I've installed new speaker wire to the rear speakers in the rear corners of the living room. I've gone with the same Amp as my friend the Denon AVR1909 which I got for a bargain of £270.00 brand new. Well I'm up to the stage now of getting in all the cables sorting all the electrics for back lights etc now as you can see from the photos still a long way to go but I'm really looking forward to the finished article. I will be having cupboards either side of the chimney breast to store a PC playstation 3 and any other bits and pieces, there will be one remote control a Logitech's Harmony 895 universal to do all. Any ideas whilst I am constructing my project would be most welcome. Thanks for looking at my thread.
