Hewlett Packard VP6120 DLP Projector
This projector surpassed all my expectations. 2000 lumens,
component and S-Video inputs and amazing picture quality comparable
to projectors 3 times the cost.
Yamaha RX-V630 AV Amplifier
Excellent value surround amplifier. Yamaha make excellent
surround amps at this sort of price range so anything similar
would be an excellent choice.
Cambridge Audio DVD55 DVD Player
Award winning DVD player at a fantastic price. What makes
this player so good, is that it is progressive
scan which when matched to a progressive scan projector
(such as the HP VP6120) produces a superb, almost line doubled
Key to the real 'kick' of the sound system is the subwoofer.
This particular sub was about £130.00, but pushes out
enough bass to make the whole settee shake. When choosing
a sub woofer, make sure it is the active kind (it's own internal
amplifier) and is rated at 100w +
Eltax HT-2 Bipolar Speakers
Excellent value rear surround speakers. I already had
speakers to use for the fronts, but I would have been quite
happy to use these as fronts if needed.
Gale Center 10 Centre Speaker
An all round good performer for a very reasonable price,
although it might be better to spend a little more and go
for a larger size.
RGB to S-Video Convertor
I needed this because the standard Panasonic SKY digibox
does only outputs in RGB or Composite. In order to get the
best possible picture quality for Sky TV (very important with
a screen this large) I had to convert the RGB output to S-Video
with this little gizzmo.
3 Way S-Video/Composite/Audio Switcher
This great little device allows me to switch between 3
different S-Video sources plus the audio. This meant I could
have SKY TV, European Satelite and XBOX all running in S-Video
3/4 inch thick plywood base, fixed to the wall, covered
in projector screen material, bought off the roll and finished
with a black wood surround

Assorted cables - £100.00
The whole system is controlled from a Touchscreen LCD
screen, which is basically like a giant programable universal
remote control. To find
out more about this, see the in depth article all about it
