So, the home entertainment revolution is gathering pace, and I'm probably going to go for an Airplay based set up, as it seems the most flexible and best value solution. Audio duties will be done using Airport Express units connected to speakers systems. iPad and NAS for control and file storage.
Like many of you blokes, I also suffer the 'I'm not having those ugly great things cluttering up the place' issue with the wife. Which means something more discrete is required. I've seen and heard those tiny Bose speakers in various places, and they look ideal really. A subwoofer can be hidden away out of sight. Will be a compromise between sound quality and aesthetics. Not after 'audiophile sound quality', that's just a load of waffle and I doubt I can hear the 'difference'. Just something that sounds good, without costing the Earth really. Does anyone else use such a system, and what options are out there?
