    the girlfriends parents have moved and are considering a plasma which i am speccing for them the room layout is shown below (sorry for the dodgy aint scetch bt it should help you get the idea now kit will be DVD Sky and VCR (yes i know VCR not ideal!!!!) anyway the plan is to have the lost in a custom built cupboard they are having put in.

    37PW panny plasma on panny swive mount so they can angle it towards the arm chair slightly underneath a shelf with a YSP-800 probably and below that a cupboard with doors for kit what i need to know is what will the YSP sound like from the arm chair and the 2 seater sofa (on right hand side) let me know what you think

    many thanks horny

    horny,

    Could you not get the YSP mounted in the part of the cupboard that is going to swivel?

    I know this could cause problems with the set-up if you never swivel the TV back to the exact same position you used the YPAO to set it up
    But to counteract this you could put a mark somewhere so you know where to swivel the TV back too.

    Hope that helps

    ps i just bought a YSP 800 as well for my wife to have with her TV, i'll post thoughts when i get it this week hopefully

    the problem is that the swivelling of the screen is to be done by the panny pedastel as a swivelling cupboard would be pricey, it would be possible to anglke the YSP on its shelf but a bit of a mess interested to know how you get on with it tho...

    Yeah i realise your predicament a bit better now

    This could be completely over the top but i'll say it anyway :suicide:

    The only other thing i could suggest is mount the YSP 800 on top of the plasma

    You could do this by getting a plasma wall mount to put on the TV
    Put a piece of MDF on the wall mount on the back of the TV rising above the top of the plasma enough to mount the YSP 800
    Then Mount the YSP 800 to the MDF as well

    So you'd need a plasma wall mount, the YSP 800 wall mount and a bit of MDF, might not be an exactly cheap option to do :(

    yeah, they'd be basically 1 unit link with MDF sheet.

    only thing is the base would have to be a good 1 to support the extra weight and obivously the center of gravitiy will be higher as well so it might have to be wider base as well say 1 to suit a 42inch plasma instead of the 37inch panny they have.

    I'm not that clued up on plasma swivel stands, so i am guessing, but i'd look at this type of solution if i was in that position.

    Horny, I'll try and have a listen off-axis tonight. I only setup the YSP-1000 this weekend, and haven't yet either had a proper listening session or tried to tweak it at all. Basic "auto setup" seems to work quite well, but doesn't sound as good as it did in the shop, possibly because the section of room that it's in is a little small, and also lacking a right-hand wall...

    I'll see what happens with a little experimenting this evening, and then let you know.

    Hmmm...definately best if you're sitting right in front of it, but even off axis it does sound wider than it looks.

    I'd think in your situation it would work pretty well. Mine is only about 9" from the left hand wall, which I think is a bit too close, but is the only visually acceptable option.

    You definately need a sub though. I've got a REL quake, and it sounds much bigger than it looks. Very easy to hide in a corner and get a big effect.

    thanks rowland I have gone way over budget already and there is no easy way to trim it other than go PWD7 instead of PWD8 I will work out some prices and see what they think then maybe buy them a cheap sub for Xmas
