    Looks really nice and clean.

    All i would say is i think you could do with one or two pictures on the wall that the tv is on, looks abit bare! thats just my opinion though, maybe you dont like pictures on the wall.

    Great setup.

    I have the same myself not sure if you have the sub? If you don't it makes a world of difference and frees up the playbar to do what it does with the lcr channels. Also I've added two play 1s as rears and as long as your tv will pass through DD then you have any issues with getting 5.1 surround. A lot of people complained that there is not DTS support but honestly if you setup correctly and use the correct settings on your blu ray player etc to passthrough DD then there isn't an issue.

    Anyway enough rambling. Enjoy!

    Very tidy. You ran the play 1 power lead through the wall did you?

    Sold dali's. I listen to a lot of music so sonos was the way to go for me. Also most of my movies are on itunes so sonos works great for my movies.

    Ah, I see, makes sense! Would you recommend the Dali's?

    Great upgrade, another lovely av cabinet. Nice clean install. Getting rid of the floor standers and rears must free up some space and give a slightly more 'roomy' feel. Hope you enjoy it!

    Hi there. I Would highly recommend the dali 5 package. They sound superb. A friend of mine bought them off me and he is over the moon with them.

    Brilliant, he's a lucky man! They've been in the back of my head as a possible upgrade. I've demoed the Sonos range a while back. Another great choice and nice flexibility to expand through your house should you wish. Thanks for getting back. Enjoy!
