Welcome to our first featured Front Room Cinema. Today I am taking you to Holland. I would like to introduce you to something a bit different. Something that may make you think slightly outside the box of a standard looking Front Room Cinema or Dedicated room.
What Zuluman has put together is quite unique. He has brought some really nice modern design and used it with some traditional Home Cinema kit to bring a fresh and bright room. I love the AMBx lighting this really adds to the room making it truly special. Also another really nice feature is the use of speaker material to hide kit under the TV. Very clever!!
Lets look at the pictures….
I have also managed to catch up with Zuluman for a quick chat about his set up….

Z – design and build by me.
FRC – If it was DIY what was the best worst bit?
Z- cables where awful, and you cant see any result putting in the ambx was really sweet because of the visible result
FRC – Which film do you use to showcase your set up?
Z – opening scene transformers 2. the bass of the fronts and the klipsch gets the wife doing the laundry on the 3rd level really ******. its almost like an earth quake (concrete structure)

FRC – Does the whole family enjoy the room as much as you?
Z – yep, the kids love their game spot in the conservatory. but they’d rather game on the plasma.
FRC – Are you going to buy into 3-D?
Z – the price difference ain’t that big. so when i buy a 50″plasma i probably will.
Thank you very much for sharing with us.
There we have it folks. The cool calm dude from Holland and his amazing Front Room Cinema. I hope you enjoyed the read. I certainly enjoyed putting it together for you. If you want more information on Zuluman’s set up then it can be found here over at AVForums
As a clincher here is a short video of the AMBx lighting in action….Truly lush
