I am currently in the process of purchasing my first home and looking to take my previous set up of a 5.1 Surround Sound & Projector which was set up in my old bedroom at parents (Currently in rented and miss it like mad!!).

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for projector/speaker mounts or stands? I am playing with the idea of asking a professional company in to set it all up for me but I fear the costs will be ridiculous. Your thoughts would be appreciated! FYI I am based in Dorset on the Dorset/Somerset/Devon borders so if you know anyone who would help me set up all this up for a small fee that would be appreciated too :)

Why can't you setup your own home cinema ? It's not hard to run the cables under carpet or laminate.

I was hoping to get it all ceiling mounted as likely to be a tighter space than I would like so need to maximise opportunity. Also would like it to look professional.

You mean placing speakers in the ceiling or at ceiling height on the walls. If you're cutting into the ceiling then you need to know where all your electric and water pipes are, then the cost of replastering so it gets pretty expensive. Probably easier to channel it into the wall and run the cables under the coving to the speakers. Down side is that the speakers should really be at head height when you're sitting down so it will be tight that high up. I only run fronts, centre and sides due to this.

The problem with channelling into the walls is that you should really only run cables vertically in a wall. It all depends on as you say budget etc.

I'm in the process of doing up my lounge - we moved in about a year ago and the house needs a lot of work. I'll end up pulling the ceiling down and running all my cable up there. Best way to do it if you can.

Just be careful as cowboy builders run cables all over the place so it's dodgy cutting into a ceiling. I'm running my cables in the gap between my laminate and my skirting board as I've got all towers except for the centre. Might change my mind when I get Atmos :)
