    I had Pounds (www.poundstv.co.uk) install my home cinema and have nothing but good things to say about them. They are THX and CEDIA approved, and won the 2002 Installer of the Year award in Home Cinema Choice magazine.

    Give Mark Eastwick a call at Pounds, he is extremely helpful and a pleasure to do business with.

    Depending on the level that you are talking about, I would recommend Acoustic Arts in Watford - Fraser or Kingsley. Both very knowledgable guys. They are quite high end though - however they do stock some cheaper equipment. Either way, I would be surprised if you found anywhere with more experience.

    rahulkohli,

    I take it your not short of a few pounds?? Minted in other words, because custom installation doesn't come cheap! The cheapest custom installs featured in any of the Home-Cinema magazines I've seen where $15000!!! Now I'm sure they do much more modest installs too but I'd still say you're looking at a fair old wedge of cash disappearing out of you bank account! :D

    cheers for the help guys. i will probably give pounds a go because they are near me and have a wide selection.

    i decided to give custom installation a go rather than getting and installing the stuff myself becuase frankly its easier and there is less chance of mucking it up.
    plus i thought if im gonna get a system in, i might as well spend the extra money and do it properly rather than getting a budget system that i would have to replace sometime down the line.

    i rang this company called prestige today and they said that a basic system was about £10,000 and that they did systems upto £200,000. i would love to see what a system like that looked like.
