Go for the Yamaha RX-465 or above models or the Denon AVR-2310, you won't regret it.

The Denon AVR-2310 is the best sounding AV receiver I've ever heard.

I've recently scored a Freeview HD box off a friend. He won it in a competition but is renting and doesn't get the signal for it. Gave it to me until he buys a house (couple of years away!). Nice!

Other than that my set up is pretty standard. Sony Bravia HD TV and a PS3. I'm loving the clarity of Freeview now and actually using the TV's HD setting to its fullest. Now when I watch the news I'm always like "Wow these presenters have too much make-up on!"

Don't leave out the Marantz SR6004 Dolby TrueHD & PLIIz / dts-HD MA AV Receiver, sublime, If you don't need the switch HDMI outputs, there is also a SR6003.

I think this forum needs a few more pictures to see some of the setups Cool

I will post some this weekend. Currently I just have a lounge setup (see signature below) but I'm hoping in a couple of years to start work on a dedicated home theatre room/mancave!

Comments on my setup:

HTPC: Terrific all in one option once it's setup correctly (Bluray, HD DVD, Freeview, music, games). I occasionally have issues but mainly due to the fact I tinker with things continually Laughing


Receiver: Works really well with the Klipsch's. Was considering several other receiver options but the VSX matched well with the speakers (have to be careful as they can sound a bit harsh with the wrong receiver).

Klipsch speakers: Loving them in my HT setup. A few notes: Have to marry these with the correct receiver and give them a month or two of playtime for them to really settle. Some people may find them a bit harsh on the high end but this is generally alleviated using the above 2 fixes. Very efficient and I haven't got close to hitting the receiver maxing out with them.

Ok, I've been holding back for a while since this setup I have is temporary (isn't it always?).

I live in a 2 bedroom unit, so space is an issue.

Got:

Display: Panasonic 42" Plasma (720p) - was on sale during boxing day, I'm aiming for a 50+.
Receiver: Yamaha RX-V861 7.1
Speakers (all Klipsch):
- 4x F-2 floorstands (using two floorstands for surround)
- C-2 centre channel
- Sub-10 subwoofer

Sources:
- Xbox 360
- AppleTV
- Sky (not HDi)
- Freeview HD (built-into TV)

Other:
- NAS serving content on the network (read more here)
