Cool! You must go Atmos! - SO much more immersive....   I've just spent the last 3 years building a little room in the house for watching movies..... just a few more 'tweaks' and she'll be done....  

It begins!

I got a new Zed today   http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g441/PaulXJ8/_12_zps6de6b8b1.jpg

Just for a comparison...

 

The two arms were quoted from Nissan Main Dealer as £631.30

From Amayama, sourced in Japan and including delivery, I paid £302.80

 

Delivery was about three weeks.

I've just spent the last 3 years building a little room in the house for watching movies..... just a few more 'tweaks' and she'll be done....

 

How long have I been saying that though?! (Once the projector went up, it became all play and no work - so should have been finished over a year ago)!

 

I do need to finish the project, so I can reclaim the garage for car work - at the moment I can't fit anything in there past the workbench....

Sweet home cinema!! :) I've put mine as discretely as I can in my lounge but it's nothing compared to yours. I routed all the wires in the walls and ceiling for a 5.4.1 set up with PJ and motorised screen. One day I may have a dedicated room.

 

Great amp too Paul :)

Thanks. We had a lounge setup in our previous house - but took the opportunity to build this after we stuck an extension on our present place. The Old dining area was very dark and dingy - not a nice room at all, so needed to do something quite dramatic with it.

 

Couldnt believe it when SWMBO said yes though! :D

In the interests of keeping the post relevant though.... I picked these up a couple of days ago.

 

A cordless rotary tool (Dremel), and cordless heat gun - to add to my Ryobi collection.

Strictly speaking, a couple of days ago this arrived:

 

My Re-Tyred 370Z!

Ian Cook (of Pop Bank Colour fame) decided to frame and sell some of the cars he's used to create his artwork. He's done a run of 50 'Re-Tyred cars', all different types. I was lucky enough to bag the 370Z one :teeth:

 

Being a nice chap he also chucked a Datsun 240Z print in the box for me too :)

Looks like it has been 3D printed Paul... that's the kind of finish we get on parts that have been printed.

Yes indeed! I think Les will know what this is because he has something similar.

I received a fairly substantial cheque/payment from the state today.

 

No, I haven't broken the habit of a lifetime and decided to give kids a try - it wasn't that large a payment anyway, which is surprising as it's far less environmentally damaging (and that's from someone whose degree included environmental economics) - rather, I've just received six months road tax rebate on the Zed.

 

It's like a savings account where you put money in and get less back at the end of the term. Careful, it'll catch on.
