Ermm, yeah if you can find where I live
I've been meaning to post updated pictures for months now, so here we go:
A list of the equipment:
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)
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
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)
You've got a really nice place there, the room looks top notch, as well as the equipment
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
what make/model rack is that you are using....
i quite likes it
ps. your quad's are very shiney
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.
ok thought i would update this as mine has changed a fair bit

Nice setup sam, i like the hifi
But, has your carpet ever heard of a vacuum cleaner?
Cool setup, I got that hifi, well think you might have next model up (i have the dv280) and its amazing!
Love that sub, did you make it yourself?
RRP £550 for that sub
tbh i find the thecnics hifi setup a bit slow and ploddy and not as loud as it claims to be
sounds alright though
I have heard better but i paid £300 for it and I cant really complain, its better than most hifis out there so I love it. If i had more money I would prob get a higher end system
TV: Toshiba 32ZP48
Speakers: Tannoy Revolution R2's
DVD: Sony NS930v
CD: NAD 320BEE
Receiver: Sony DB790
Im pretty darn happy with it for games and films.
LOL, You would make Microsoft Happy!
Awesome set ups everyone!
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
My (New, in Canada) setup:
Moving from top to bottom
Crappy "Emerson" VCR that chews tapes
Pioneer dual cassette deck
Pioneer Dolby Pro-logic amp (+ twin Pioneer speakers, not pictured)

500GB HDD space (2*250GB)
2xPVR-250 TV Tuner cards
XFX FX5200 Graphics card
ASRock SiS-based mobo
SilverStone LC11 HTPC case
Running MythTV 0.18(Pre-Release))
All running into an RCA 32" 4:3 TV
Yamaha RXV 630 receiver
Pioneer DVD636D DVD player
JVC XLE34X CD player
Sony SA-VE surround sound speakers
Panasonic 36" 100Hz TV
Chipped PS1 (for all my old ps1 games i play no more)
And soon my HTPC (i say soon - could be weeks!!)
Its not a brand new system, and its not state of the art, but i like it
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
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)
eerrr... what sort of parties do you have?
you have a pole dancing podium there!!
your sort dom_,
