Looks great Tom. I am taking delivery off my first projector this week in no small part due to the HDA1 and we are getting ready to turn our "media" room into a dedicated FP room and I am not going to lie, I am all giggly about it.

Nice HT. One thing I noticed was sheen off of walls, did you use flat paint or is that a gloss finish of some sort?

Which model Berklines are those? My theater is going to be about the same width as yours, so I'm trying to visualize what it looks like with that many chairs.

Thanks,
Guy

I used a flat paint only. I know the camera made the walls look reder then what they are, its actually a dark maroon. Flash was on camera and all the lights were on, maybe that influenced the sheen you see

Hi Digial Man, I believe it was the 090 model. I got them from Roman (RSH) here on the site during a powerbuy. Also got a popcorn machine from him. He was excellent to deal with!

Tom,

Terrific room very nice. I was a bit suprized you went with inwalls and didn't do them behind the screen with AT screen for a more theater like experience. Minor point. The room looks great anyways and I'm sure it sounds excellent as well.
Cheers
Calvin

I consulted an installer about the perferated screens and he said they lose up to 10-20% light for them so I decided against it. With the front wall & speakers both being black, there hardly noticable with the lights out but just wanted to say it was a prior consideration.

Nice HT. Too bad I have a smaller room. 10' x 20'. It is a bit cramp. So, my gears are in living room at the moment.

Bass, please. Shaken, not stirred.

Very nice.

Reminds me a lot of my own room (same seating layout, sub, similar room dimensions, and even a couple of the same posters).

Fortunately or unfortunately , your desire to upgrade is a common one among us and will be unlikely to pass ever !Enjoy what you have while researching and considering the next upgrades
