    I've been meaning to post updated pictures for months now, so here we go:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A list of the equipment:
    Video:
    Infocus X1 DLP projector
    Draper Luma 50" manual screen

    2 channel/front L and R in multichannel:
    Rotel RA-01 integrated amp
    Rotel RB-03 power amp
    Rotel RCD-02 CD player (with Russ Andrews classic powerkord)
    Quad 11L speakers (on Atacama Nexus 6 stands)

    Multichannel:
    Yamaha DSP AX-630 AV amp
    Mordaunt-Short MS-905C centre speaker (I'd like to replace this with the matching Quad centre speaker at some point)
    Mordaunt-Short MS-903S rear speakers (also on the list of things to replace in the near future)
    Rel Q150E MkII sub

    HTPC:
    The HTPC is used as both the DVD player in the system (using TheaterTek as the DVD player) and for gaming (both PC games and console emulation). The system is controlled by a combination of an ATI remote-control for the interface, and a cordless Logitech rumble-pad for gaming. The specs of the system are as follows:
    P4 2.8E (Prescott) cooled by an Alpha 8072 with a SilenX 80mm fan
    2 x 256MB Crucial PC2700 RAM
    Abit IS7 i865 motherboard (with Zalman NB heatsink)
    Asus Geforce 6800GT
    M-audio Revolution 7.1 soundcard (for DVDs)
    SB Audigy LS soundcard (for gaming)
    2 x 250GB Maxtor SATA hard disks
    Pioneer DVR107 8x DVD writer (with region-free firmware)
    Antec Truepower 380W PSU
    Silverstone LC-01 HTPC case (2 x SilenX 80mm fans)

    Thanks for the compliment dude. It's taken me a good few years to get it to its current state, though it is getting to the stage where I'm pretty much happy with it (just one or two minor things to add or replace). I just uploaded a couple of other pictures of the barn too if anyone's interested. The first is here and the second is here

    The rack is made by a company called Henley Designs and the model is the WR-5 I believe. I don't think they still make it, which is a shame because it looks (and sounds) very nice indeed.

    The quads are indeed very shiny, but an unfortunate side-effect is that they seem to collect dust quicker than anything else in the room.

    Gallery is easier.

    Tisn't anywhere near a "hifi" setup, but it certainly gets the job done. The Sony speakers sound right nice imo, and the TV has a really nice quality. Next investment is an InFocus projector and a good screen. I just want my pool table and custom bar to get here :(. End of the month :D

    Well after enough tweaking with my Minolta Dimage F100 I was finally able to set up my camera to take a picture in the dark. This is an untouched photo that was resized to 800 x 600


    [​IMG]

    A good title to this pic would be "The calm before the tornado", in other words how our living room looks like before a party.

    Props to people who can name things off ( like names or size of the image)
