I like your room. It shows what a person can have with a little time and money. (Not sure "cheap" applies with the chairs, sound, game systems and PJ.)

I like the blankets or "light reducing acoustic treatments". What percentage of light do they stop? My blackout curtains should be called "somewhat light reducing curtains".

About 95%

The Room is always dark even on a bright day in South Florida.

I use the moving blanket on the Door for some what acoustic.


The Film Noir logo was made with acoustic material.

What do you use for ventilation in your media closet? I have a similar setup with my media rack in a closet. My room is upstairs so it gets a bit hot during the summers in TX. I normally don't close the door but it is about 8ft away from the seating area so can't really hear it. How close to the closet are you?

I am using a Standing fan i bought from target..

When the AC is running the room is cool enough but i thinking of buying Dyson Blade less fan for the media rack.

I leave the closet door closed when i watching a movie or playing games,leave it open when i am done..

Hi..

Can you please post some pics with the Projector ON. I just want to see how the picture of any blueray movie looks. And by the way. Pioneer Receivers are awesome. I sold my SC-1222 yesterday and the new SC-81 Elite is on its way YES!!!!!.... From many receivers I had in the past (Marantz SR6003, Onkio 616, Denon 3311, Yamaha 475, and Pioneer 823), I have to say Pioneer SC1222 is the BEST RECEIVER. Second on the list the Denon 3311 and Pioneer 823. Awesome Audio for Movies and Music as Well. I want to try the Elite lines now!

Im thinking seriously in upgrading my 65" Plasma Panasonic TV with a Projector. Im on the research now on the $800-$1200 budget. On my list so far is the BenQ W1070 and Epson Cinema 2030!

No problem i will post some screen shot soon..

Are you going to use your Pioneer SC-81 in Dolby Atmos setting?

The picture quality on the projector is amazing,BenQ uses DLP and Epson uses LCD..

Hi....

Sadly the SC-81 does not comes with Atmos. Atmos starts on the SC-85 model. This model will be release on Sept and costs about $1600 !!...
As for projectors; I knew BenQ is DLP and Epson is LCD. How does this BENQ looks vs a Panasonic Plasma HDTV or Samsung LED?
What I still dont know is the difference between DLP and thos 0.7 DLPs.!! ... I was unable to find more info about it.

Very good use of the space. I also think the moving blankets as blackout curtains is a very smart and efficient way to keep the light out of the room.

If you have the space to go projector there is no comparison. Any possible losses in picture quality is easily outdone by the size of the image you can get. I haven't taken any pics in a while but there may be a few in my thread if you want to look.

I would suggest adding the Epson 3000 to your list to at least compare. If you have any type of placement issues the amount of lens shift that it has can be a huge help. I have the Epson 8350 which it replaces (main difference is the addition of 3d) and I love it. Everything I have read about the BenQ says it is excellent it just wouldn't have worked in my space.

Amazing setup, I envy people with spare rooms who can do this. What are those white pages taped on the wall for?

That's great.
I don't see a BluRay collection anywhere, or do you have a separate room dedicated to media storage?

I have seen several threads on using spandex, they tend to vary widely.

How did you go about making yours? Framing material, layout of the bracing, etc
What weight spandex did you use? source?

Ultimately, how does it look? Overall and compared to the previous screen.

I'm asking because I am considering making my own this winter. Currently have a 106" Elite, would like to go larger and AT.

Thanks!
