New AV setup....nearly there...

Hi Guys

I've been pretty busy recently ensuring that my movie/gaming/office room is up to date with all the kit I need to have an awesome movie and music experience

I'm nearly done, just waiting for a decent HDMI cable (QED) to come through and get tidied away...then that's it.

Speakers are still being being run in so I can't have it blasting yet, but it sounds amazing

Kit:

TV:

Panasonic TH-42PZ80B 1080p High Def Plasma

Console:

Sony Playstation 3 with 250GB HDD (via HDMI)



Blu Ray Player:


Panasonic DMP-BD35 (via HDMI)

AV Receiver:

Denon AVR-1909

Speakers:

Fronts: Mordaunt Short 906i

Quality silver-plated Bi-Wire

Rears:

Fronts: Mordaunt Short 903i

200 strand oxygen-free copper

Centre:

Fronts: Mordaunt Short 905i

Quality silver-plated Bi-Wire

I am looking at getting a nice desktop stand for my centre so I'll show that when I can find a nice one.

PC (awaiting Project Aqua Vitae to be finished so ignore the case for now)

Connected VIA DVI-HDMI to the Plasma and Optical Out to the Denon.

Dell 2407WFP Monitor

Right, less talk and more pics!

Note that the spare cable hanging down will be replaced and tidied.



Rear View



PS3



Panasonic DMP-BD35



Denon AVR-1909



Angie!



Piccies my mate got me



Rear wiring all tidy!



Some speaker lovin'







And some HD Audio money shots!





I'll update with the last pic when I get the last wire tidied.

Hope you likee

True HD/DTS MA HD is a big difference. The sound is so much clearer and more directional than DD/DTS. I really notice the difference.

He only wants to make us jealous..and succeeds

Im saving up for a decent stereo / 2.1 set next - anything is better than cheap 5.1 "pc" speakers

Nice setup you have there, iv always wanted a AV room

Im aiming to go from a good stereo/2.1 setup, upgrade the amp/decoder and add the rest of the surround...but that will probably be after uni lol xD

That's a good way to go mate. Deffo get a solid AV Receiver first with HDMI HD Audio. yes they're like £230+ (for the cheapest), but it's worth it.

That's a great setup Kempez.

Currently I can only dream of something similar as funds don't allow for it atm.
