Pontus' Particularly Posh Perspective

Tech Tour

Name: Pontus Loq
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Size: 1 bedroom apartment

How can someone so young have such an admirable grasp of balancing the requirements of putting together an exemplary home theater setup with the sophisticated aesthetic impression of a room as a whole? Oh yeah, this 22 year old gent puts us in our place and shows how to put together a home theater setup with everything going for it from an audio, video and decorative perspective. Check out the full breakdown of the components below and get ready to feel a tinge of envy.From the Logitech Squeezebox Radio hooked up to a 5.1 surround system in the bedroom for wakeup duty to the liquid fuel fireplace in the dining area to heat up winter evenings to a most impressive home entertainment center all controlled by a Logitech Harmony 1100 remote (controlling lights, HDTV, switch and receiver), this Stockholm apartment is the epitome of being truly plugged in.

Note the combination of a darker, textured wallpaper background behind the home theater setup to ease the visual impact of so many electronic components in one space (the candle lighting stands near the stand speakers also soften their presence). Keeping everything with a similar palette of colours is a smart way of visually tying everything together and darker colours are especially effective for optimal viewing in darker rooms.

Pontus Loq also notes a familiar image from a few decades back as inspiration for his setup: the classic 1989 Maxell advertisement. Reviewing his specs and the photos, we don't doubt the effects.
