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.

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.

TV - Panasonic 55GT50 THX, Main Speakers - Klipsch Gallery G28's, Center Channel- Klipsch RC-52, Sub-Klipsch Sub 12, Surround - Klipsch RS-52 II Bluray/Game - HTPC/PS3, Receiver - Onkyo RC-360, HTPC- Intel Core i3, HDMI,Windows 7,XBMC,Bluray,7 TB, Video Processor -Darbee

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.

Alan in Boise
103 inch AT screen with 9.x playback. IB subs. Two with dual 15s and one with dual 12s. Screen channels with Minimus 77s. Minimus 7 on front wide and front high and wides and sides. Room is perfect size for smaller speakers like the Minimus speakers. Approx. 17x13x8. Tower speakers were taking up to much room. Onkyo 818 used as pre-amp. Power amp duties handled by HK 2.1 Kenwood KM-X1. Hafler DH200.
