It all looks great but one comment is your focus seems to be more toward your ears than your eyeballs.

Quick glance at your room shows me a wall with a tv yet the wall seems of a size and location that would easily support true Theater in the Home sized screen.

Have you considered stepping up from watching television to being "at the movies"?? You can install a pull down screen for Theater experience to go along with all that audio and Theater seating and then just watch television when you care to.

No TV today can deliver HT so give it a thought - your room would easily support the upgrade and, take my word, you will not be sorry!
goodluck

Imjay, your right that my current set-up leans more towards audio than video. But this won't be long when the Panasonic AE3000U lands in Philippine shores. Notice that there is a space between the two signages. It's meant for a PJ installation.

Thanks Jabney and Jbungie. The wood used for the floor is called Almasiga. It's a rare variety found in tropical forests in Asia.

Very nice but all that nice high end and audio and video won't mean squat if you watch Quantum of Solace or TDTESS that costs 20 pesos from a kiosk in the ground floor of Glorietta mall

Victor,

Thanks for the reminder. The counterfeits are not sold in Glorietta mall though.

You wrong again, pal. They no longer sell those there. There is a new place where the counterfeits are being sold. Perhaps you will get updated the next time you visit Paquiao's country.

Imjay, do you post anything besides "thats nice, but can you do a real Ht instead?"

thats the only thing i ever see from you. sometimes it almost comes across like what they have is no good unless its a 100+ inch screen.
