    EDITED FOR NEW SYSTEM


    At present I have in the lounge :- Samsung LE46A656 LCD, Denon AVR2808, Sony BDP-S550 Bluray player, Sony PS3 (60Gb), Monitor Audio BR2-AV speaker pack with BR 1's added for the surround rears and recently upgraded the MA sub to a BK XLS200DF. I have steadily upgraded when funds allowed (and managed to sneak stuff past SWMBO :D) to what I have now. Previous incarnations were two different sets of Mission speakers, various subs (M&K, Yamaha, VIBE), different Denon receivers (1601, 2802, 2805...see a pattern forming).

    In the bedroom I have a Samsung LE32R87 32" LCD acting a my PC monitor and general TV viewing. DVD playback is from a Denon DVD 1930. All audio (inc PC, which is a customised Packard Bell thingy) is all routed thru a Yamaha DSP-AX861SE AV amp to a set of Tannoy EFX 5.1 surround speakers...(neighbours love me :rotfl:) so I have 5.1 surround for all sources.

    The dogs are still with me, and still eating me outta house and home, but I wouldn't change that for the world..(cant find the original pic of my dog Winston in front of the old system that sparked off the "woofer position" comments, but that was the reason for gratuious pics of my big dog Duke)

    Anyways, thats all upto now. Will try to update as and when new additions arrive.

    Graham.

    Here's my BIG woofer (images 1+2). I know it's not home cinema, but.............BTW his name is DUKE, and he's an english mastiff crossed with a rottweiler,nine and a half stone in weight, and as thick as a brick.

    EDIT he is now 10 and a half stone (FATTY BOY is his nick name)

    Anything he likes :D Seriously though, he has two meals a day, he's not greedy as he will leave some of his evening meal for later (an hour before last walkies as a rule) and, he is the one and only dog I know who HATES chocolate.
