    Hi guys if you are interested this is my system to date
    I use a Denon AVR 4308 as my main control center it feeds a perreaux 6160 power amp tri amped for my fronts.
    Into that goes an Arcam DV 139 ,mysky hdi,a panasonic bd35,Oh and a denon DP-45F turntable with a shure v15 111 cartridge, Imac g5 with all my music on it streamed vire Twonky music server to the denon.
    On the out, speaker wise I have a pair of Vaf I66 as fronts and a custom built I66 center speaker which by the way is the same as the fronts but deeper but the same internal dimensions.
    I am using some di pole DB dynamic speakers as surrounds and just an old pair of nec speakers as surround back until the war office gives the go ahead for my dream speakers the I93 vafs which will allow the I66 to move back.
    Zone 2 out on the deck we have a pair of polk atrium 45s
    A velodyne CHT-15R does the low part for movies only.
    We use a samsung 55" lcd series 6 during the day and for normal TV viewing but at night a panasonic PT-AX 100E projector (Only reason I was permitted the 4308 was the twin HDMI outs te he)
    I had a swamp kauri unit built to house everything looks really nice the only thing was the effect of the immense heat on the wood it made it move a little ,fixed it with 4 small fans that switch on with the 12 v trigger. When we drew it up we went off manufacturers recommendations for room around but man does the Perreaux put out some heat when you give it hurry along! I have started on interconnects but still need a heap more i am realy happy with my choise of antipodes audio katipos but for now i will need to wait, dam resesion need 6 / 1meter pairs da .
    Hopefully didnít bore anyone too much cheers

    Wow, great list! You'll get on fine around here and can probably contribute quite a bit yourself. I have read that Australia is limited and expensive for audio gear, is New Zealand the same? Or is it all a myth?
