Room is almost done!

Some more pics.

First Person Mode: (yes I even use black sandals - don't want my whiteness to lower room ANSI contrast... Lol.)




Some design work around where people may touch, as the walls are flat black:

Thank you Mike and David.

The "room" will be done on wednesday night.

Then clean up around the rest of the unfinished basement / better protection (grading / water tight seals) around the house. Then onto equipment.

Awesome, came over here from your Lumagen post--been looking for an option besides doors in front on both sides of my screen and those posts have really got me thinking.

80% done cleaning unfinished basement, then onto the equipment....

Room's looking 10/10. Excellent work.

If you're going to have a dedicated theater room, this thread is the epitome of why the cost and time is more than worth doing it right.

Actual phone call (see pic to left):

 

Tech (responding to laughter): "I'm sorry sir, did I miss something?"

Me: "Yeah, a case of Diet Mountain Dew walking across my living room."

Thank you very much for the compliments guys. Make me feel all that was spent (money and time) was worth it and I hope to enjoy for many many years. When I started the project planning over 2 years ago I wanted to make a full out crazy high performance theater. I hope to know soon if everything turned out as planned. Once I get all the equipment installed and calibrated. Again, thank you all for your very nice comments. To give some inspiration to others, I make way under 6 figures a year. And it is still possible to get something like this without having to make over 100,000 a year. It just takes time and dedication. I haven't been on a vacation for over 4 years now... Lol. (but will after everything is done. )

Congratulations SOWK, nice and dark.

What movies have you watched so far? My first was Dark Knight - held off watching it for like a year so I could save it for the HT.

Nothing fully yet as I still don't have the equipment installed or a projector at this moment.

Should get the Sony VPL-VW95ES by Friday.

Its a very beautyful HT, you have made there, and I think the 95ES will
be just perfect for room.

Very impressive work

I was wondering if you could post your impressions between your old Samsung SP-A900B and the Sony 95ES?
