]In the last week brought my amp and speakers and discovered this website - I have lots of plans and not really a big fan of the setup i currently have.




Did think twice about putting this pic up but though what the hell, get it on here then i can track my true progression.

My next 'thing' is going to be to get rid of my cds and have some wireless music sorted out :)

New TV - Panasonic TX-P46G15. Purchased from Richer Sounds after a price match with Costco :)

Wallmounted easy enough on a dry wall. Seems stirdy enough, used decent wall plugs from Screwfix.

Changed the old cabinet and using my old cd/dvd ikea shelving unit at the moment - think it works ok.




Need to get cables hidden - thought i would be able to just drill through the plasterboard and drop them down but when trying this (in a few places) i have what i describe as a waffle styled joist system so dont know what to do - dont know which way to go at the moment...Think i might need to do some thing around the tv now as there seem like a lot of 'space' not sure at the moment, But this is it for now anyway..

Its on the back of the TV. Have 3 24" lights on top and sides at the moment. Was advised to get more but happy enough at the moment with the look of it. Dont have the funds to see what it may look like anyway..

This is what I'm struggling with with my TV at the moment. It's so thin and wall hugging that the lights look poo. Especially as they're not the same on both sides as my TV has all the connections down the left hand side of the back of the TV.

Grrr.

I noticed you have a sony dh800 amp, ive been looking at these for a while and just wondered what your opinion of it was.

By the way, you look like a guitar fan, i know its tiny but check out my avatar, its santana playing last year at silverstone (took the pic my self). :smashin:

Wires gone...



Now i know this is prob really poor and not the 'correct' thing to do, but i drilled through to my bedroom at tv level and near the skirting board and fed the wires through this way to the TV. My wardrobe covers this in the bedroom so i thought it was a quick and easy way to do it in the end.


Only wire that caused a problem was the ambient lighting, this is now plugged into the bedroom plugs to enable it to reach, and just put masking tape on the unit for the time being.

Let me know what you think.

Putting the cables through the wall is cowboy genius...

The new owners will get a shock when they see the holes in the wall when they move the cupboard.
Looks good
