When I first started lurking on these forums many years ago there was a combination of super duper home cinemas that looked like something out of a magazine and "humble" cobbled together systems where people had scraped together bits and pieces to make something functional. It seems as if all the latter set ups have disappeared. I used to like seeing the less spectacular systems because I could compare what people like me were doing to get their home cinema fix. Anyway, since my trusty 32" LCD stopped working and the replacement necessitated a complete redesign of my room, I thought I'd post some evolution pictures showing how things have changed in the last 13 years. 2005. Philips 24" PW6006 CRT TV, Pioneer DV-575A DVD player, Philips MX980 Surround sound Amp and speaker set. 2006. Same kit, change of position. 2009. Same kit, added furniture. 2011. 24" CRT replaced with 32" LG LV550T LCD. 2011, one month later. Toshiba BDX-1250 blu-ray player added. 2017. Things remained unchanged until the Phillips Amp and speakers where replaced with a Yamaha RX-V681 Amp and Wharfdale DX1-SE speaker system. 2018. New 43" LG UK6400 TV wouldn't fit where the 32" was so a total rearrangement was required, which brings us up to date. So, there you have the evolution of my humble little system over the years. It's nowhere near as impressive as 99% of the systems on here but it's all I need. Thank you for your attention.
