    Congrats on the excellent setup
    I have also decided to do something very similar in that i have limited space in my bedroom, however I am going for a much more drastic final product from how it is currently.However I am going to be overly ambitious and mine will probly come out silly(I plan on doing EVERYTHING myself, furniture, re-plaster etc)

    So look out next month for a thread quite similar to this,Thanks alot man for LOTS of ideas and components to look at.

    Do you not find the TV too high up?

    The improvement is amazing, your setup should sound so much better now.

    I find it an ideal position actually.
    When im at my desk, im typically slumped over it, so i dont really see the telly itself. Which is one reason why i dont really play PC games on it.
    But if i lean back in my chair, put my feet up on the desk, its ideal placement for me to completely relax, and either watch a film or play a game on my GameCube.
    The same when im sitting or lying on my bed, its an ideal position in my eyes for everywhere apart from less than a meter away.

    Hmm, the tv placement does seem like it would frustrate the hell out of me, but if it works for you I guess there isnt a problem.

    Hard work.
    Ive worked 2 jobs and alot of overtime to afford the telly. The other stuff was bought as/when i had the money. I tend to make good choices with the HW i choose, i research them thoroughly, making sure i know everything about a product, including flaws, and possible fixes.
    You'd be suprised to learn how little i earn compared to alot, but saving and not spending money on things that arnt needed has aloud me to build an AV setup that suits my needs perfectly, and a PC that allows me to maximise my productivity for work.

    Cant be bothered atm.
    Function over style my friend. :p

    Lol.
    Love the concept drawings! :p

    The 3rd one seems best for TV placement/sound.
    But it depends on how you use your laptop. If its your main machine, you might want to consider making part of you room, prehaps on the other walls, have a small desk on it, so you can use your laptop properly.
    Otherwise, it seems fine. imo.
