Hi Guys,
Eventually got round to this have just updated the speakers from AE AEGO T's and have plans to update the Amp and Bluray soon after a sub and some new rears. Need to sort out some cable management and there is a new sofa on order to enhance the viewing. Thought of a projector but my room is only small 3.5m x 3.5m so may go for a bigger tv later in the year. Kit list below.

TV - Samsung LE40M88BDX
Amp - Onkyo SR605 TO BE UPDATED
DVD - Samsung HD870
SKY+HD
Blu ray - PS3 / Denon DVD 2500T
Front - B&W 685's on Z2 stands
Centre - B&W HTM62
Rears - B&W M1's
Sub - AE soon to be SVS
Chord HDMI's and QED XT speaker cable

Nice set up, could do with a bit more cable hiding but otherwise very nice, i like the cabinate you have there and the wall the tv is on. Looking good :thumbsup:

Where is your sub though, you need to rattle that TV off the wall !!

Thanks mate the cable hiding is my next job. Im waiting for HDMI's to come with smaller ends so I can run one through the small conduit behind my tiles. I have bought some decorative cable management conduit for the cables below the cabinet and am looking to move the PS3. Im thinking of putting a shelf in the cabinet for the PS3 as i dont fancy stacking it on my Sky +.

Really nice.

It's very different to most set ups I see on here.

I love that floating cabinet too. Makes it stand out more.

Get those wires hidden mate.

Great set up mate:smashin: Love the new B&W speakers and where is the floating cabinet from?
Thanks,
The flooting cabinet was the previous owners so I cant take the credit. I think its a overhead kitchen cabinet thats been modified. Im gonna try and add a shelf into half of it so I can put my PS3 in smarten the place up. Ive bought some gear to sort the speaker cables out. I want to order a new bus either BK or SVS but have to wait for the new sofa to arrive so I can see how much space I have to play with.

Really wanted a Projector but would have only 2.6m between the screen and projector dont know if this is adequite. Also the screen would have to be a 150 cm or 59 inch wide in the metal case. GUTTED i would also have to change the light fitting as ours hangs low and would obstruct the picture. Oh well will just have to upgrade the house instead.lol

looks really good, how come so many speakers? I think I can count 5 at the front but may be losing my mind.

Thanks,
Yeah I still had the old AE speakers up have taken them down now put a shelf in the AV cabinet for the PS3 so thats hidden away but I was watching Band of Brothers Bluray today and noticed it gets very hot. The fan was running alot not sure if this is just my PS3 as it is 2yrs old now gonna try and clean the dust out of it. I also got some stuff for cable management so will post some more pics when sorted. Im also gonna get a new sub and some B&W MT1's for the rear.( Im tempted to go 7.1 but the wife will take some convincing lol). Ive just ordered Sky HD as they haev a good offer this month.

Ordered SKY + HD the other day at the new price of £49 got a message saying it will take 4 to 7 weeks to complete my order. It must be really popular at this price.

New Denon DVD2500T WOW I love this watched Killbill and The Dark Knight again after setting it up. The picture was miles better than the PS3 saw alot more detail in the dark areas of the scenes and the colours where mental. Also noticed the detail around people is alot sharper making the image looking almost 3D well worth the money. Cant really coment on the sound as I was playing it low due to it been late and Im also sub less at the moment. Now I have a good escuse to get more Blu-rays.

Nice purchase mate! Have read some excellent reviews for it! Glad to hear its living up to the hype and I would love to get one but there's so much I already want to up date! I think I'll just have to wait! Where did you buy it from by the way and more importantly did they give you a deal?

Hi,
