build quality is not as good as ikea ones, but this perfectly matches and fits the place.

Thanks CFS

It's very thin fluorescent lighting from B&Q.

cabinet is from argos (melbourne entertaintment unit x 2)

another cabinet recommendation is Ikea bonde sideboard. very good one, but looks better without legs. also you may not be able to fix the back panel as the width is just 40 cms.

Looks very nice indeed. I have been looking at those cabinets for when I move house. What did you use for the lighting behind the cabinet?

Thanks mate. Got a nice place to hide place, still noticable for AV enthusiasists!

BTW, you sold your Ultra?


I did indeed, not through the problem of sound quality TBH, it was purley cosmetic.

Couldn't help but notice the Argos cabinet as I've been considering the same cabinet myself, but was wondering, do remote control signals work OK through the frosted glass doors?

I know it sounds like a daft question, but I'd hate to have to leave the doors open just because I want to change channels, adjust the volume, etc!

Thanks.

yes it does.

But if you have SKY HD box you may have to open doors for allowing heat to escape. I always kept the doors closed when i had SKY+ box, but HD box generates lot of heat.
