New place, new living room (beginner stereophile setup)

It has been a long long long time since I updated this blog. Due to hectic working environment and also moving to new place, finally I manage to spend some time for my last post before 2011. What's new this time? A Fully Custom-Configured Home Entertainment System!

For my humble living room, I have set the following home entertainment centre, minus game console:-

Display: Panasonic VIERA TH-P42X28K Plasma HDTV

Networked Media Jukebox: Popcorn Hour A-200

Integrated Amplifier: Cambridge Audio Azur 340A SE

DAC (Digital/Analogue Converter): DacMagic Digital to Analogue Converter

Bookshelf Speakers: PSB Alpha B1 Monitor

Subwoofer: Mordaunt-Short Carnival 9 subwoofer

RCA Interconnects: QED & Cable Talk

IPTV Box: Supplied by Unifi (High Speed Broadband Service Provider)

Speaker Cable: Acoustic Research HT Pro Series 16-Gauge (Oxygen-free copper)

Speaker Stands: Cannot be used currently due to the size of my TV rack and Living room width

Having these items are really challenging for me to tune my audiophile music up to my preference and trust me, it took me days to do it! Even so, until now, it is still not 100% and this is the enjoyable process of testing and tuning the audio output.

Since my current cabinet is too long, I cannot use speaker stands, and temporarily I have to rely on the cabinet. The best solution in near future would be a proper AV cabinet with a pair of nice speaker stands for my PSB Alphas.
