Multimedia, AV Let's do some blatant copy/paste from Ars Technica. A few days ago they ran a story called "What's in your home theatre system?". This poll wasn't so much about listing specific speaker types or amplifier models as it was about a number of more recognisable devices you could vote for. Let's copy their idea, but make it more open: what's in your home theatre setup - and list everything, from CD player to DVR to the type of cabling used. Be as anal about is as you want. Read on for my setup.

CRT projector for old schoolness

Barco 800 Data - (running at 1024x768@60Hz, instead of 720p due to owning lots of 4:3 content). Projecting a 7ft diagonal image.

Yamaha something or other - DTS surround system (it sounds good and I'm honestly not that bothered about the model number ;) ). Sony 5.1 speakers.

HTPC - Primary source for the projector, VLC + Media Player Classic software. DVD drive, DVB-T TV card, with composite in for old games consoles.

Understanding flatmate - who can live with a 64KG lump on a table in the living room ;)

Interesting timing of question, I'm getting a Barco 808 tomorrow \o/ Same massive size, 50% brighter and 1080p.
