My Home Cinema / Retro Gaming / Retro HiFi / Office / Man Cave

Hi All!

Meant to get round to this a while ago when I read that the forum was back (which was great news!).

I moved a little while back and found myself with a converted loft space. The loft still needs to house a lot of stuff that needs storing but I have managed to squeeze as much as I can into compartments on one side. With a realtively clear loft my goal was clear. I now had space for a Man Cave to house a home cinema, my old-skool Hifi, retro gaming set-up and office (due to the recent COVID situation).

I know that we are now onto Dolby Atmos etc but as I last had a come cinema set-up about 10/12 years ago and decided to pick up where I left off as I never got to experience Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master Audio.

Not impressed with the Funko Pop selection! ;)

I have The Alien, the Faun and Pale Man from Pan's Labyrinth, Carrie and Gomez & Morticia Addams. Really want the rabbit from Donnie Darko, but apparently they are eye-wateringly sought after!

Good lord, haven't seen one of them in ages. Reminds me of having to explain what Mrs 12th's walkman was to our youngest when we rediscovered it at the bottom of a bag after 10+ years...
