    hi guys i thought it was about time that i should put my setup on here, obviously i feel like my setup hardly compares to yours!

    i joined in Decemeber 2008, to ask a question about dvd player region hack and thats when it all started.... i then i noticed a sale thread, and that when i noticed myself becoming addicted to this forum and reading up on audio equipment. i came across this thread and spotted Mr Mad H`s and The Forces, Avguy`s setups etc and thats when it inspired me to get my own! my missus thinks im crazy spending hard earned on electronics.

    i started out with a 32 inch sharp lcd on a chest of draws now im finally getting somewhere in AV

    now that im buying av stuff ive noticed i feel like im on the dole and awaiting the next payment for my next fix of av!

    notice the blank space - well thats where my marantz cd player will go via digital coaxial to my amp, plus on the hunt for a decent standard DVD player as the denon is kaput.

    Also, i know pine and wenge dont go but hey..... as Austin Powers say`s "i like to live dangerously baby, Yeah Baby very good!"

    Nice set up Resi, I wouldn't worry too much about 1080P over 720P, spend your cash on the best 42in HD Ready (720P) set you can afford. I have a 720P set in my home cinema and 1080P in the bedroom and on HD sources (PS3 and Blu Ray) I really can't see the difference between 720 and 1080:thumbsup:

    yup dammit ive been found out!! im a secret streetfighter fan, back in the day i used to tournament play street fighter and that chun was second prize :S

    im glad after this week it should look like a proper setup as im getting a tv stand for the telly and the amp + dvd player and 360 wll be placed under there.. then i can make my room a slight bit more modern.

    force you dont happen to have any cable tidy tips do you, have you seen the back of my amp? :D
