    Cheers for the comments. Carpet is now ordered and waiting for the glazing company to replace the frame in the bay window as it was made wrong. That should be sometime this week im told.

    The Wembley one didn't have the units in we wanted. I dont think they do lounge stuff at Wembley at all.

    Its just an effect wall with back lighting with the bonus that all the cables are hidden. The units that will fit at the bottom of the wall will fit flush so no wiring will be on display.

    It isnt led lighting. I was going to get leds but was put off by the fact you cant dim them, also the fact we used a brown wall ment most different colours would have an odd effect. Its a mains powered rope light with normal bulbs in it and only cost about £1.95 per metre, including the end kit and tracking to run it in it cost about £30. http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/DT611W.html

    Heres a pic with the speakers mounted although you cant see them that well.

    We have three Ikea besta units that will span the whole length of the wall and sit a little higher than the end peices of my floating wall. They push flush onto the wall which is why the cutouts are at the bottom to allow cables to run to the different boxes.

    Right got some pics tonight although the three units on the bottom need leveling properly but they are in and it gives the right idea. Got my PS3 back online too now:). Need to level the front spots too.

    I have to say I'm really impresses with the Q acoustics speakers and Yammy amp they really sound nice together although at some point I may upgrade the fronts to 1020is.
