    After doing some research Ive found an company online in London who do relatively well priced power solutions
    suitable to me budget.

    I'll be making a start with the wall socket and mains hubs.

    Once im done with the above Ill be replacing all my walmart etc wall plugs with decent psu's!

    -60 inch Kuro
    -ORIGINAL Bowers and Wilkins Nautilus (he dropped about $75Gs on them)
    This--> Nautilus.jpg
    -Krell Evolution Series amp, processor/preamp (about $50 grand for the 3 and accessories)
    And he has it all in a special room built for the purpose of sound...he likes his music hifi:cool:
