Fantastic! Thanks for taking the time to post this and create the video. It's always great to see people who are that passionate.

Also your wife seems incredibly understanding of your hobby which is very cool :)

My first proper gaming set up. Tried to keep it simple (and not too expensive) but also tried to add some style. The creative T3130 2.1 speakers sound amazing (placing the subwoofer behind the TV worked out pretty well).

Wonder if you have the name of that stand you're using? Looks quite nice. Love the white Slim too!

I had to wait for months for the various parts to my setup (tv unit had to come from sweden, and that took ages), so i've been itching to post this for quite some time.

 


Crazy collection! Really useful info in the video too. My brother in law has hit about 2000 DVDs and has been trying to cope with the increasing size. I'll pass along the video.
Thanks! If it is of any help at all, it'll have been all worthwhile!

LOL - Yeah, I got lucky with her. She's a bit younger than I am and played consoles I missed out on. She had a Gameboy back in the day and aced the original Crash Bandicoot on PSX.

She's not really a "gamer" - but there are a handful of games that she plays obsessively when in the mood - Super Stardust HD, Pixeljunk Monsters, Resogun and all of the Ratchet and Clank games.


Impressive.

The DVD storage solution is super amazing.
Thanks entrement!

While very, very impressive, I couldn't even imaging living with that in my living room. Not too mention it'd be a chaos when my nephews/nieces come over :p

I'd love having a mancave of some sorts with a collection like that though.

Two things;

A. What model LG is that? I almost bought the 47" 120hz model yesterday.

B. You need to fix your aspect ratio. You're losing some of the PS3 screen!

I live in the Philippines so I'm not sure if you'll be able to buy it but I got from here.

A. The TV is LG 39 - LB5820.

B. Thanks for pointing it out! I managed to fix the aspect ratio.

I'll admit I have a bit of a wires everywhere scenario, but it's so hard when you have two setups and a bunch of consoles.







Old school setup with Sony KV-13FS100 (which is a great 13 inch CRT for retro gaming and has a 3 line comb filter which makes the picture quite sharp and nice). Tiger approves. =b



Found this chest on the side of the road somewhere, it right away reminded me of a chest you'd find in a video game so I just snatched it and put my PS4 in it haha.

Am I the only one who has this urge to go to LUCKY n WILD's place to sort out those cables?

Great shots. It'd be great if people would also list what some of their furniture is and where they got it from like you would see in a catalog.

Ikea Besta TV Stand with Doors (Lots of custom options with Besta, no direct link available)
Ikea TOFTERYD Coffee Table
Ikea Micke Desk
Jordan White Leather Bar Stool

:) A lot of those cables below are from me recently playing guitar with all my pedals. It's normally not as messy but still. I'm always shifting things so wires unfold over time always.

A lot of great set ups folks. I'm probably 2-3 years out from having my own house but the girlfriend has promised me the entire basement as my man cave if we end up getting a house together.

Have you ever thought about using the same molding that you have hiding the wires up to the TV for the speakers on either side instead of seeing the wire? I think it would look better.

I actually thought it was from an Uncharted collector's edition or something. I love it.


EDIT: Tabris put that you're in Vancouver in the OP. Every year it's the same thing with a bunch of new people asking where you are and yet you never do it.

Samsung 55", PS4 and a Bluray player. No room for a receiver unfortunately.
Ikea Hemnes TV Bench
Ikea Kivik Loveseat

Sofa looks comfy as fuck.

I did play around with it a bit, yes. My conclusion was that the cable tray (molding?) that I used beneath my TV was simply too big for that one cord on each side, and it would take too much attention. Now the solution would be to buy some slim thin ones, but eh - I haven't seen any yet.


Oh and it's not my speakers!

Mine have not changed since last year :/ currently a poor grad student haha

Anybody have experience with those TV stands with a mount? Wall mounting isn't an option for me.

My new sound bar doesn't fit on my current TV stand with the TV on it. (Blocks the bottom of the TV)

Love this thread too. We're moving into a new house, and my mind is going nuts thinking of how I am going to arrange the man cave. So many possibilities...

Very nice unit. I'm a big fan of white units with wooden tops.

Any reason you mounted the TV so high though? I find it most comfortable to have the center of the screen at sitting down eye level.

Very clean! I like it. What brand are those speakers?
Thanks! They are from Heco (Aleva TC). In my old flat I did not have that much space and I wanted something with a small footprint and good stereo sound... Do not know if you can get them outside of the EU though...

Sadly I don't think they are either. Those are really what I've been looking for though, maybe I can find something similar. Very jealous!

Nice setups all around. Thought I might share mine too. Be kind...

Living room:



And some winter view as we had snow over the holidays...
Couple of things:

I fucking love your kitchen. The dark wood and the black boards with crayon makes the perfect mancave look, that combined with a very bright room makes it very pleasing to the eye.

The lamps that are hanging over your table, where are they from?

Hmm. I always found that the most comfortable height for viewing - I usually lie down on the couch, or sit in my relaxy chair when playing, so my head is almost tilted to look upwards.

The TV is exclusively for playing games (neither me nor my girlfriend watches TV) so it's pretty much placed based on my gaming preferences.

I love subscribing to these threads, such an inspiration for setups and living spaces.

Mine's been constantly changing the last few months, all for the better. Certainly not gonna be a flashy set up, but I look forward to posting pics of what I started with up to what it'll be soon and the different phases in between.


And for those who don't feel like their setups aren't "good enough" to post here, that's bullshit, post it up anyways. This thread isn't just for the rich folks.

Everyone's got different situations going on, and I think this thread wouldn't be as interesting if we only had MTV-Cribs-Level setups.

I love seeing budget-conscience setups from the average joe, it's an art working with what you got.

Glad you guys enjoy that chest, I figured people would get a kick out of that.

Also, I had to do some proper cleaning and re-do a photo of the whole room for you all. :)

So there has been an insane amount of fog in Vancouver over last couple of days. What makes it very creepy at my place is you can only see the W sign and nothing else:

I mostly have to thank our landlord for the kitchen. I think it was intended as his man cave originally..

The lamp is momo from http://www.sottoluce.com/

Very nice accepts and I'm jealous of your view. Also love the kitchen blackboard.
