Hello, I wanted to shared with you my Media Room I made out of one of the xtra bedrooms in my house. I wanted to thank everybody on these forums for their help, I've spent endless of hours getting help and ideals from you guys. To those of you on the fence about making small room into media its very possible, I remember my builders of my house telling me that there no way a projector would work in this room, I think it turn out alright. My room is only 13x11. I hope you enjoy the pics. And if anybody have and suggestion to make my room better please post it, there always room for improvment.



















Definitive Technology 7.1 System
Pioneer Elite SC-75

Very nicely done, I like the room colours and all the small details, banners and posters. Must be a nice Theater to watch films. One suggestion would be to try out the Darbee video processor. It makes a difference in picture quality when watching Blurays. Specially in a huge screen like that.

Media room- LG OLED EG9600 4k, Pioneer Elite VSX-90, PS4, Klipsch Gallery G28's, Klipsch Sub 12, Klipsch RS-52 II, Optik HD cable

Living room- Panasonic ST60, onkyo RC-360,HTPC, Klipsch Reference R-62II, Rc52II

Gaming room -Panasonic GT50 THX, PS3, Wii

thanks, I been thinking about getting a Darbee but seems the reviews are mixed. I think my bluray looks pretty good but my Uverse doesn't look so good. Do you think the Darbee will help my uverse signal?

The darbee works best with HD sources. 720p/1080i/1080p If you are wanting improvement with SD channels it won't really make a difference. Crap in - Crap out. But it makes a difference with HD channels and Bluray movies. Once you have it, you wont want to watch a movie without it.

very nice build. So they say projector won't work. Hey look you proved it can. I like your speakers in the system. Small and not taking up a lot of floor space. Perfect for a room like yours and mine. The bonus for small speakers in small rooms, you can still get a lot of sound and not have the room eaten alive with big speakers. Very good job. Love the color scheme.

Mitsubishi 3800 projector onto 103 inch DIY AT screen. Marantz 8802A Sound ably handled with DIY LCR speakers. Surrounds are Paradigm in wall speakers. Overhead speakers for Atmos and DTS:X are minimus 7. DIY IB sub system. Two pairs of Dayton 15 inch in separate manifolds. Power amps are Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 doing basic 5 bed channels. Kenwood KM-X1 6 channel for L/R wide and four overhead speakers. Kenwood Basic M1D doing Subwoofer work.
