Finally replaced my topfield 5810 PVR with something more reliable. (after it corrupted the file list again and broke all my recordings up into 1400 fragments that i'll have to try and edit back together) Replacement is a Humax HDR Fox-T2 1TB, which i've applied custom firmware to so i can access it anywhere.



PC is looking a tad dusty, and that noctua has got to go as it is too noisy. New GTX 780 & EK titan block have bedded in nicely. Temperatures are way down on what they were with my 6970.


Using the plasma as a gaming display is awesome, though it is better suited to movie/tv duties as using a mouse on the bed makes my wrist ache.


It's not far off my original room design that i drew up last year. Just need to sort out the shelving for underneath the plasma so i can fit a centre speaker and some more bluray/dvd storage.


It's certainly a far cry from how my room used to look back in 2005.

Love the A/V gear, but your room did have one big plus in 2005:
Nintendo 64 (with golden eye?)
Also wondering how many metres of cable you've been able to hide so well :P

I still have the N64, just not out on display. (it lives behind the mirror panel to the left of the tv and yes it is golden eye) A rough estimate on cable length would be around 150m ignoring the usb connections on the pc. Most of it travels over the ceiling or under the floor.

It is indeed. Super comfy and dirt cheap to make, still reclines and gas lift works too.

Dug through the pictures i took back in January when i finished building the hifi rack. This should give you a rough idea.

This is just the cables that link the various units on the rack plus my pc. Custom made cables at just the right length helps. (includes both signal cable and mains via IEC) It's tempting to chop off the pre-wired mains connections & fits sockets on everything.


This is the stereo amp which drives my front speakers only. This now has a pair of isolation transformers in place which stops a ground loop caused by my xonar essence.


One analogue input from the PVR and the other 4 inputs are all digital. The subwoofer connection was absent as it was in the car back these were taken.

Got hold of some tannoy super red monitor 10's to replace my Kef Chorales. Certainly have a different character to the way they sound vs the kef's, probably because of the dual concentric design having a very different polar pattern. Tonally, there is less of a difference, mainly just more LF. Also got a 12 way powercon-IEC mains distribution unit so that i can manage the power to my hifi and pc via one unit.

Mains distribution to help tidy up my cable chaos. Going to have to fit IEC sockets to the back of most of my devices where possible.
