    Hi,

    I've been lurking on this forum for a while but decided to join and post something, so thought I'd say hello and introduce myself! :)

    I've been into home cinema technology since I was at Uni and visited a friend who had a widescreen TV with surround sound setup in her room. Decided there and then that I want something like that!

    Well, right now money is a bit of an issue so my setup probably seems pretty laughable to a lot of people on here - it's a small Sony 16 inch widescreen TV I got for Christmas a few years back, hooked up to a Phillips DVDR980 DVD recorder (which I use as a player mostly owing to the fact the recording function rarely works!) and a couple of VCRS, as well as my PC. For my surround sound output, I have a Daewoo Hi-Fi which has Dolby Surround output on it - sounds pretty good too, IMHO! :)

    So, nothing brilliant but I get a lot of enjoyment out of it anyway. I should be getting a DVD recorder that works (hopefully!) in a few days so that I can transfer all my old VHS tapes to DVD and claim some room back in my bedroom - and stop the girlfriend from nagging me about how there won't be room for them when we get a place to live! lol

    Anyway, like I said - just thought I'd say hello and I look forward to joining in some of the discussions around here. :)

    - Gordon

    Howdy.

    If you want laughable on the kit front, check out my Profile Kit List. This is the reason why, if I'm not in here or on the Music forum, I'm to be found over in the MP3/iPod section: my real passion being portable music gadgets.

    Nice to have you on board!
