Hi. Thought I would post some pictures of my current livingroom entertainment setup. This occasionally changes, depending on if I’m wanting something new etc, and recently obtained a new Blu-ray player. So at the moment my setup consists of: Sky HD satelite service, Pioneer BDP-150 Blu-ray player, Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10 amplifier, all connected to my 40 inch Samsung 1080p LED television. B-)
Just a quick post to wish all the visitors to The Movie Report a great Christmas. Hope Santa was good to you!
Of the gifts I received this year, I had a set of Sony blue tooth ear phones, Kelly Clarkson greatest hits cd, the best of Family Guy on DVD, the official Scarlett Johansson calendar, Mad Men season 5 on Blu-ray as well as clothing, smellies etc.
Thank you to everyone who got me things and hope you like what I got you!
Ho ho ho.
Well it was my birthday on Wednesday. First and foremost I want to thank everyone who got me gifts, cards etc. Secondly I got the Kindle Fire HD! Yes my new gadget and what I am creating this post with right now.
Also received Dishonored on PS3 – first impressions? Wow. Will report back on that in the coming days. Also as an update on future posts on this blog, you can look out for reviews of the following: Headhunters on Blu-ray, Men In Black 3 and The Ides Of March (both via online rental services), as well as horror flick Fertile Ground. Technology it seems is moving on quick and fast and I am trying my best to keep up with it all. Some future reviews will be from online rental but of course I’ll still be watching Blu-ray, and visiting the cinema when the opportunity takes me.
For now though thanks to everyone again and I had a wonderful day.
With the advent of Sky to my gradually growing home entertainment set-up, as well as adopting Blu-ray a while back, I felt it was well overdue that I go for a decent sound system to further compliment my (just over) year old Samsung 40″ LED television…
Here’s what I’ve gone for. It enables me to hook up both the Sky HD box and my Panasonic Blu-ray player, for (hopefully) much improved sound. Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10 Integrated Amplifer & Cambridge Audio S20 compact loud speakers.
Update (13/01/2012): Well I have the system set up and connected to my LED Television, Sky HD and Blu-ray player. Verdict? Very nice indeed. The Amplifier itself is of a very good build quality and weighs a fair amount, made from brushed aluminium, and the high-end workmanship is in no doubt. The speakers are also very well made, heavy too and sound great. The system itself is not overly bass-ey, if that’s a word, but has a nice natural feel, with depth to it that compliments viewing television well. When viewing a movie (I tested it on an action sequence in Avatar) it impressed with a very immersive and surround-like experience, which I had trouble finding any fault with. It’s still early days, but at the moment I am well happy.
Guess what I have being installed on Saturay? Yes that is right, the UK satelite service SKY in beautiful HD. Now my world will open up to the wonders of obscure TV shows, bizarre channels, movies I’ve seen a dozen times, and repeats of old favourites. But hey, at least I won’t be bored … hopefully. Here in the UK we don’t quite have the luxury of cable television, at least not to the extent as in the States, although things have greatly improved in the digital age, where previously we had to just flick through (count them) five channels – we now have digital channels, cranking that number up dramtaticaly. Yet Sky, which is a subscription service, offers even more choice. Colour me excited!!
