    Cheers, mate. We try to make it look as close as possible to the Christmas trees we grew up with as kids, so have used vintage coloured lights and baubles, etc. It suits the house too, and gives the room the cosy and traditional vibe we like

    Hi Jim,

    Part of the home-cinema and secondary music system, mate. The one on the right is part of a pair of modified (new caps, internal wiring and binding posts) Celestion Ditton 15XRs, and the single speaker, under the TV, (acting as a centre) is a Celestion UL6

    Full system is:

    Main Components:

    Sony KD-43XD8305 TV
    Sony STR-DN1060 AV receiver
    Sony BDP-S6700 CD/DVD/SACD/Blu-Ray player
    Latest model Sky Q box.

    Speaker System:

    Fronts - modified Celestion 15XRs (on Atacama stands and Mana mini-soundstage supports)
    Centre - Celestion UL6
    Rears - Gale (used from a complete AV speaker package).
    Subwoofer - 2 x Yamaha YST-FSW150.

    Music source and storage:

    Modified Raspberry RPi with Paul Hynes linear PSU
    2 x Seagate 5TB NAS Personal Clouds, powered by bespoke-built, fully regulated linear PSU. See thread here for details: http://theartofsound.net/forum/showt...r-Power-Supply

    The big system is upstairs in another room. Sounds great, especially with movies!

    Marco.

    Lol @ Kevin's one!

    Nice one, Alan. Is that from your own garden?

    Marco.

    Yes it is Marco, it's 4 years old and always kept in the pot.

    It's about 75% taller than when bought. So nice to have a real tree that is still growing.
