Force, this is flat out gorgeous!! The living room is very modern. I'd be scared to sit there, i'd mess something up! lol

One question, where is the center channel in the living room? Are you running a phantom center?

Beautiful setup

What type of TV stand is that? If it's custom-built, what material is it made out of?

The couches most of all. I believe I read in this thread that you handmade the paneling on the wall and the TV stand, very impressive work.

Cheers DG and blackmarket.The modular tv stand I designed and a friend sorted out the units for me. The sofa is called 'Plastics' by Kartell, an Italian company. It's modular seating, and decided to go for a left arm, right arm, and 2 pouf/ottoman sections to create the 'l-shape'.

You can get it here:

Though I'm sure you can get it in the US & Canada also ?

Cheers guys !

Thanks for the link and the speedy reply!

I'm definitely going to order myself some of those bad boys once I have some extra money. The square panels you have on the walls just add so much to the atmosphere too, it's great. How do you keep the white ground so clean?

No worries blackmarket, and thanks again mate. To be honest, we have a couple of ladies that come in once a week to sort the place out for us - and they just love (hate !) cleaning the floor lol . As regards to keeping the grout white, the tiler pops in twice a year just to freshen it up. He's a diamond.

Hey FORCE, I'll echo other's comments, very nice pad. In your PC room..man, what a slick looking HTPC! What do you mainly use it for? Do you do any gaming on it, or on any other TV? Is it connected via HDMI or VGA? What resolution?

Late,
Matt

Hi there Matt, and thanks for the compliments mate. The Vaio I use mainly for surfin', photoshop work, and when I get time I have a bash on an Edirol PCR-300 and Fruity Loops Studio XL.

I did try it connected via HDMI at 720p and 1080i, but for some reason the text wasn't as crisp as when using VGA, so I now just use that. I think the reason being, that the Sony panel's native res. is 1366x768 which is what the Vaio outputs over VGA. When using HDMI, it's ouputting at a res of 1280x720, so the screen has to upscale slightly to fit it's native res resulting in a poorer image. I have to say though, over VGA I'm well impressed !!

I've never done any PC gaming in my life, so don't know how games would run on it, and I'm still yet to watch a BD on it - laziness I know ! When I get some time, I will see what it looks like outputting 1080p on the 60" Kuro in the front room. (though I'm still over-cautious with screen retention issues lol)

Cheers again.

Yea that makes sense about HDMI vs. VGA. My 360 via VGA looks superb as well. Yea you definitely need to hook it up to your 60" for BD....and maybe purchase Gears of War or something and give it a shot!

I wouldn't worry about it. We game on a kuro all the time and have never had any image retention issues.

You spent big bucks on the kuro, enjoy it to your hearts content!!

Did you remodel the house, or was it new. It would be great to see before pictures if it was remodeled. Its amazing to see a house change with some good taste.

Yea you're right btf . £5k for a black mirror was a bit of a waste lol. I seem to do all my gaming on the X3500 these days, and save the Kuro for movies, though it doesn't get used as much as it should.

Cheers dool. It used to be offices ! Then some developers bought it, did it up on a budget, and we bought it off them. We've changed everything throughout, except the bathroom which has only had a new floor.I've got some pics somewhere of what it was like just after moving in that I'll dig out for ye.

Cheers Joel lol. Funny, there seems to be some shadows in the place that don't seem uniform ? Almost like there's more than one light source, when everyone knows that the only light source should be from the sun, right ?! *conspiracy theorists unite* !
