    Hi there all,
    Having read the Plasma forums before joining in on the DLP side, i noticed that the PLASMA forums have a thread, where members and guests add PICS of their Setup.

    I find the pics, not only a joy to watch, but also got ideas for cable hiding and generally ideas on what looks good.

    If you guys fancy putting some pics on, I would love to see more. I have already saved some images that Lizzard posted on another thread re the Samsung, and i really enjoyed the Docklands ''view'' (only joking CARL). The pics Carl sent were very good and gave some ideas.

    I hope you all find the Xmas period a joy to watch your TV's. I in the meantime am fighting the man in my head,,,,, do i wait for the 52" or buy the 46" on Monday, hehehehe

    Lets hope you all feel the same and post your pics on this thread. I'm sure it would be well visited and loads of pics posted.

    :hiya: MERRRY XMAASSSS to you all

    p.s. im still looking for a new years party in kent or within an hour, hehehe :D

    We very quickly got used to it & anticipate something bigger in the future :D
    The nearest anyone sits is 10ft Quite often one of us will spontaneously exclaim "How did we ever cope with owt smaller :eek: " We all love it!
    The kids are happy too while one watches cartoons & the other plays on his PS2 both onscreen at once.

    Im amazed as to how clear your screen image is, considering the background clarity. How long have you had your set? Are you feeding the DVD signal with DVI > DVI or ????

    cheers
    John

    p.s. better pic than on a demo in Comets, lol

    We're using a Cambridge Audio DVD now available at around £80 :mad: at the time it was connected via the component to AV6 with a cheap composite cable so the picture is incredible considering?
    It is now connected to AV7 with a top notch component cable & now set to progressive output. From a distance I guess the difference would be hard to see but close up it's miles better :thumbsup:

    yeah i use them all

    the top left hand is digital terrestrial the one under that is surround sound and the next two on the top is dvd player and dvd recorder (for dubbing) and the two below that are both video machines (once again for dubbing) and the the top and bottom right hand boxes are both satellite receivers one for pay tv and the other is attached to a motorised satellite dish recieving 17 satellites in both c and ku band
    all transmit to the other tv,s in the house

    when i get time i,ll take a picture of my system downstairs as it has more gear again in it but its a bit of a mess right now as i,ve had to put one of my fishtanks down stairs as the wifey made me

    Great pic btw, hope you are getting on ok with the setup.

    Would you do me a great favour and take a couple of measurements of your TV.

    I wanted to know the horizontal and vertical length of the display . I know its a visible 117cm diagonal, but in order for me to work out the 52" size (which doesnt get mentioned in the downloadable info from TOSH), i can take the horizontal and vertical measurement of the 46" and apply the 4:3 measurement. (I hope anyway) Could you also give me an indication as to what the silver edge depth is on the top of the tv too the display.

    My DEAR MRS is arguing the toss whether the 52 or the 46. I am no here nor there, but blimey, my Mrs is getting well into the it now. I have promised to redecorate the room before getting the TV, and therefor she wanted to know the size of te display.

    PS People, thanks for posting the pics. Some FAB pics on here and long may it continue

    john :thumbsup:

    I had contemplated to wait for the 52" version, however, last night (Sunday night) waiting for some footie highlights, i read the usual What HiFi mag and came accross the viewing distance page. Working in cctv, i can relate to the optimum viewing distance, and adhere to it in our profession as well.
    Well this made me think, get the tape measure out and ''hey presto'',,,,, i was only sitting 10 feet away from the screen, whereas the wife is usually sitting a little closer and the kids usually on the floor.
    So was i really in need of 52", if i wasnt any further away.

    ANSWER,, not really. So, a smile came to my face and , eager with the car keys i trotted off to COSTCO in Lakeside this afternoon, and duly purchased my 46"er. TV that is, lol.

    So here , after agreeing to doing a new wall papering job, (to get the telly) i am pleased to show you guys my newie.

    maidstoneman30s

    just ordering the sammy HD DVD player, and the XBOX Hidef kit and i will be in heaven.

    Hi Les,
    Got the desk mount from IKEA. Originally had the 26" Tube on it and the front KEF's, Now the Tosh is on it, it marry's it perfect. Same hight as the silver stand as well.



    PS, ANY ONE WHO NEEDS a spare stand, I got one here for silly money.

    Thanks bud, Mission M72's with Mission stands, for the money, I think best speakers around especially as I paid £100 for the pair (around £140 now) stands set me back £80 & centre speaker is Mission M7C2S (£120.00) my rears are slightly smaller than my fronts, I have Mission M71's again on stands & a Sony centre speaker as my 6th channel (centre back) & sadly an Eltax active sub woofer (desperate to upgrade to Velodyne or REL) giving me full 6.1 surround thru my Marantz SR7300 receiver - really does rock the house, such in fact the couch vibrates during heavy bass films like Matrix, Saving Pvt Ryan DTS, Pitch Black DTS etc..
