My Lounge Setup


Standard Member




This is my current lounge setup, its changed a bit since these pics were taken so I will do my best to update this thread when I can. Specs are:-

- Denon AVR-X3000 Receiver
- Samsung UE55ES8000 TV
- Monitor Audio Mass 5.1 Speakers with all Speaker cabling hidden in the walls
- Hackintosh running Mavericks HTPC
(i5 4570k 8GB RAM 4TB Media Storage shown in a Fractal Node Case)
- Samsung BD-E5300 3D Blu-Ray Player

I've built an Adalight (Philips Ambilight style backlight) for the TV which works with the Mac, there are some photos of it below and a video. It uses two strings of LED's mounted to a purpose built metal frame controlled by an Arduino UNO.



The radiator under the TV has now been removed as it was never turned on and looked ugly. We have also got Sky and the HTPC case has been changed for a Lian Li PC-37B. As I said I will try and get some updated pics up.

Let me know what you think! I spent a lot of time planning this install and it works well.
