My Gaming and Movie Rig |

Recently I became the proud new owner of a KDS-60A3000 HDTV. It’s only a bit bigger than my previous HDTV, but the image quality and sharpness has taken a monumental leap forward. As well, with the new stand it looks quite svelte compared to my old setup. Here’s a pic:


Sorry about the picture quality, I should have taken the picture during the day.

    Beautiful setup! May I ask, why did you pick that model? Why rear-projection?

  • Great set-up. I’m jealous. The sound system looks good too.

  • freedesign

    looks great, but just seeing all those wires ……my head hurts!

  • Projection because it’s the only way to get a large image for cheap. I chose rear projection because it’s much more forgiving of ambient light than front projection.

    I chose that particular model because it’s one of the best you can buy. It’s not DLP, so it doesn’t have rainbow problems. It’s LCoS/SXRD, so the colour reproduction and lack of visible structure is great. It’s basically one of the best rear projection sets you can buy. And since Sony’s no longer making rear projection sets (or won’t be soon), I needed to pick one up at close-out prices.

    @Henning it is the best RPTV. And fantastic value as you know..the blacks are excellent, no moving parts like the DLP’s. Unless people need to have a slim LCD these are by far the best picture/value on the market. And value does not mean “cheap” in terms of quality or capability. You’ll need to spend several times the cost of these sets to get a plasma that up’s the visual ante.

    Plus the bulbs are a few hundred dollars .. so down the road you can make it like new again..not so with other technologies. I would recommend anyone gets one of these sets .. especially as they are being discounted heavily now. Like getting a Lexus for the price of Honda. Enjoy.

    Awesome rig. I finally got a decent dolby digital 5:1 system set up with my gaming rig. I have a 40in Sony Bravia LCD which is very nice for my room…..with a decent home theatre system it just makes it a million times better.

    Great choice Henning, the setup looks awesome!

    What kind of sound system do you have everything hooked up to??

  • Linn speakers, Rotel amp, and HK receiver until a pre/pro comes available that has what I want and that I can afford. (I bought the Linn speakers and Rotel amp used.)

    Well…What to say…You’re lucky! My setup is poor compared to yours! May I come to your home? LOL There’s just a little problem…Have to get a plane too and I think it’s better with the money for the flight to upgrade my setup! Cheers!

    WOW – I bet the PS3 games look amazing on that, and blurays even better, that is some setup…..

  • This reminds me that I need to make some pictures of my setup. I’ll do just that… the second I get my ps3 back. Does anyone know how long it takes (more or less) to fix a bd drive gone bad?
