    Used of these , https://www.unipro.com.au/products/...rollers/uni-pro-grainer-rocker-graining-tool/ with just sample pots of interior satin in a couple of shades.. You basically just lay down the bottom colour, let it dry, lay down second colour, then run graining tool up and down, rocking it as you go. Can get better results than what I achieved - some finishing touches after using the tool, like didn't do a final brush over the finish soon enough after to smooth out the effect / add some thin grain lines throughout, so looks bit artificial up close. Some people use dark stains instead of solid colours , and some other tricks to emulate timber almost perfectly. (lots of vids on youtube)

    This was just for the study but the sound from this Soniq tv was terrible, so just today took delivery of some Edifier speakers. Simple cheap speakers but vastly improve the sound of the TV. Love edifiers :thumbup:

    I have the same Edifers on the second TV. They go well enough for sure. I agree they look far better without the covers on too ;)

    Yeah I tried both ways and definitely better without the covers. I have no covers on my main setup in the living room too.

    The R1280Db's which were on special recently for $109 delivered, too cheap to pass up after my sound bar died.

    Still on special too.

    The comment was just a joke, thanks though for the offer of help :thumbup: . I'll never replace my sweet ghetto stereo :lol: And the 6000SUX was a reference, to the old movie Robocop (1987). If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend the movie!

    Just added a sony str-da3400es in my mancave (way to hot in here to be a cave) .Centre is a Klipsch RP-500C with a blown horn for tv viewing and two pairs of speakers for music. B&w dm220i's and some Linear Design garbage. I also have a Nad c320 with some tower Linear Design (lol) for my pc and mixer/dj console. If I really want to piss the neighbours off they are both connected via rca's to increase the surface area of sound....
