    Boys Toys Room

    This is the main reason we didn't get any of our other planned projects done this summer (Sorry, Kinch we'll make it up to you!) It's an extension on the back of our house dedicated to home cinema and Hi Fi. It makes a great GH Web browser, as you can see! We're running a Panasonic LCD (we got bad rainbow effect with DLP) projector on an 8 feet wide screen with a THX sound system - B & W Speaker package with Yamaha RXV 2600 Amp (tell you about the amp some other time!) There are 7 assignable amps so we programmed the front pair as Bi-Amped. The output is 7 x 130W, plus a 300w subwoofer - this thing makes you ears bleed! I have to say we probably unerestimated the work involved in wiring the sound system which took 5 reels of Cable alone!
    Sorry about the pictures, they don't do the system justice.

    We made this so that we don't get bored in the winter when we can't Ski. .

    Screen size

    The screen is 8ft wide by approx 4 1/2 ft high.
    TV in the U.K. is broadcast at 16:9 ratio for some reason, so we had to compromise on a screen that would display this and DVD movies.
    We are behind USA in high definition, but I can't wait to try it when it's available over here.
    We built the room so that it has easy access to the garden, that way we can have a BBQ, then go in and watch a movie
    The thing we don't have over here is space. We pay a lot for relativley small houses with postage stamp size gardens. We have to plan what we do with the space. I worked for an American company for a while and was amazed at how much space you have!!
