Cheers matey - as are the chests in the bedroom also ! I love the bed, though the size is Scandinavian and not UK standard so we had to have a mattress custom made.(a few inches larger than a King-Size)

We've got this mattress on it now and it's made a hell of a difference:

Lol Cheers DGP. Yea it's not to everyone's taste, and it's ended up as a case of style over comfort ! However, the atmosphere does change quite nicely though once the fire's on and the lights are dim. *feels all christmasy*

Lol - yep good old Ikea ! We used to have a load of Ikea furniture in the lounge too, but we decided to make that an Ikea-free zone, so that's where the Italian stuff comes in lol. Some stuff from Ikea is cheap n' nasty, other bits can be solid and well made. Thankfully, through trial and error, we've managed to find the good from the bad.

Hi again Jooce. Now Joel will love this - they're Dioder LED's from.....IKEA !! pmsl You can get them in strips, but we used the single circular version behind the 3 bits of kit.

Hope this helps !

Ikea? Get out!! That stuff looks very Roche Bobois.

I myself like mid-century modern stuff. Mies Van Der Rohe, Noguchi, Nelson, Arne Jacobson, Eames. Too bad it's so damn expensive. I do have a nelson bench though.

WOW!!!! I never come into this section and thought I would pop in.

You have no idea how much I love your space. I love ultra modern and your dwelling would be my dream space. Maybe just needs a saltwater tank with some Lion Fish!

I would love your space as is (but with my speakers ) in San Francisco overlooking the City. I have been looking for something similar in the City and a space like this would be $2million. I just keep looking until the right space comes along.

Incredible...

Rick, cheers for the kind words mate. I wish I could get that price for the appartment over here lol - It'd be sold like a shot ! Frisco is somewhere I'm hoping to visit over the next couple of years, so I'll have to have a butchers and see what the prices are like. Probably way out of my league.

p.s where would I put the aquarium ?

Wow, nice and clean setup. Love it! I would love to see how clean your wiring is (any chance of a shot of that?) It looks like you've almost got none in your bedroom.

Also what are those white panels in the living room on the walls?

Hi Guju and thanks for the comp mate. ! All the cables in the bedroom are in the stud walls, and exit via HDMI faceplates, and speaker faceplates which are behind the chest of drawers. The PSU's and the switch for the LED's behind the kit are all in the bottom drawer of the chest so I can access them easy if need be. So there'd be nothing to take a pic of I'm afraid lol !

Re the wall panels, they're made from good old 18mm MDF. I gave the measurements to a local timber merchant and asked for x amount, which he then machine cut exactly. Once they were delivered, my partner and I paint rollered them to give them a good finish (rather than having brush marks), and put them up using strong adhesive using wooden batons as spacers.

I got a new wide angle lens to try and get a better shot of the PC Room, and even though it's only slightly relevant to Home Cinema, a pic of me new handycam as I'm quite chuffed with it really lol !!



She sits with the Vaio VGX-TP2S/B, NWA-1000, and the NWZ-A829 players.



In the PC Room with the Sony 40S2030 as monitor, Dinovo Edge, me trusty Technics kit and Mission 73's :



Which was taken using my new Sigma 10-20mm HSM:



Cheers for looking !

Very cool! Thanks for the info. I thought it was MDF (thats what a lot of ppl use). Btw, with the wider shots I noticed the Ikea furniture used for the stereo equipment (I've installed those shelves before!). Just a FYI those small clamps that are on the pipes. You can get them without the one hole/mount on the outside, so that you can have a cleaner setup.

Really ? Next time I'm in an Ikea I'll have to pick some up. Cheers for that ! It was joined on to some more Stolmen stuff that we got rid of, but now that we don't need those clips then those ones you suggested sound perfick !

Cheers chief !

Lol cheers mrbiggles. I am a bit of a hermit, and I don't mind admitting it either ! I used to spend whole afternoons sitting in a pub, but these days I'd much rather just chill here playing the PS3 or watching a flick with a nice bevvy. I'm getting old I tell ye ! *grabs pipe n' slippers*

Only a quickie ! Now that the 3800BD has been released in the UK, I managed to snag one on release. The Kuro has never seen images this good from a source, and I'm thoroughly chuffed with it.

I should have a new addition within the next month as regards to speakers. The Kef Reference 205/2's are looking like a winner at the mo.

Cheers chief.

Hello Force!

First off, thank you for the correction over in my thread. I apologize for the oversight or the lack of sight! And I also want to thank you for your kind words and acknowledgement. I do have an affinity for the hobby. This is my favorite section in the forum because, I feel that this thread represents the accomplishment and celebration of hometheater/2 channel ownership.
None of the negative dialogue that goes on in the other threads.
Just, praise, kudos, ideas and helpful suggestions to improve or refine one's set up.

Now, about the Kef 205/2's! Wow! Not bad, Not bad at all! (that's an understatement). Are you just getting the two towers or are you planning on acquiring the whole surround package?! And if so, is the wood finish the only choice or is a piano black-like finish available? It's obvious that, coordination is paramount in your dwelling!

Regards.
