Thanks, to do a bar like that, its actually pretty reasonable. The base of the bar was made out of 2x4's and drywall, most people would be able to do it themselves.

The fridge probably cost as much as the bar.

Thank you.

I'm delighted with the 45ES, it's performance is beyond my expectations. The screen is in front of an 8ft window (southern exposure) and I was soooo afraid that the picture would be washed out but to my surprise daytime viewing looks amazing. I'm very happy with it and strongly recommend.

Can I ask what screen you are using? I have to deal with some windows and lighter walls so am trying to figure out what will work. Thanks,

It's a cheapie Elite Spectrum electric110 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/elite-sc...?skuId=5271018

I'm hesitant to recommend this screen even tho it works well for me. I got very lucky, it comes down in front of the window and does a very good job of blocking the outside light. It also looks good with the ceiling light in the room, which is 24ft away. But the fluorescent light in the kitchen is apprx 12ft to the right and it doesn't handle that as well. It also has a small wavy area, it doesn't bother me, but it could drive some crazy. I went with it because it's my first screen, it's cheap enough to throw away lol and I suffer from upgradeitis anyhow. And...the learning curve on pj's and screens was making me crazy Speakers+subs I do for fun

Thanks, that's helpful. I haven't decided whether or not to get a long term screen or a cheaper one. I don't think I've ever come across an equipment decision as complicated as projector/screen. I'm imagine it's easier for dedicated room though.

I personally think a non dedicated room is actually better then a dedicated room. I certainly could have done a dedicated room if I wanted to but it just wasn't for me.

Do I give up a little with picture and sound? Absolutely. But overall, I will enjoy the experience more.

What lighting is behind the tv and how'd you attach it?

I used these https://www.amazon.com/Lighting-Back...and+Desktop+PC - there are a lot of different options, if you search for bias lights on Amazon.

I am the opposite. I would love a properly sound treated black room with all the speakers in the right place.

Have to agree, LRHT has too many compromises, starting the the dreaded WAF

I would love to do Atmos, but it ain't gonna happen in the LR

It depends on how it is done, mine, I dont think I gave up to much. I guess mine is more a hybrid between LRHT and a HT so we could be talking about different things.

Sitting in a dark room that wasn't connected to house didnt appeal to me.
