Congratulations, Will. I know we probably won't hear from you for several months, so enjoy the room!

Congratulations. It has been an inspiring story. You've worked hard and done yourself proud. Enjoy the many hours of movie watching ahead.

I look forward to the screenshots.

Again, well done.

Thank you very much all my AVS buddies! Oh boy!, what a journey it was (and still is, since a HT is never REALLY finished wink.gif )

I've tweaked the PJ and amp a little more today to play nice together and show a more beautifull picture. The DSTV HD PVR satellite TV looks SO nice, much better than I could ever imagined. The SD channels look like DVD and the HD channels almost like Blu-ray.

Here is a pic of my rack as it's now. From top to bottom: DSTV PVR, Yamaha RX-A3010, a little Sansui 7" LCD monitor and Harmony 900 remote next to it as well as other remotes, Yamaha BD-S671 BD player, open rack for PS3 (will get later), my trusty old PS2, Pyle AMP for front presence speakers, a bigger Pyle AMP for the Aura bass shakers in the chairs and below it is the selector for the different chairs' shakers, to switch individual chairs on or off. The two big white switches below the selector are the two main powerline switches that comes into the HT. The 3 little switches next to them are for the fresh air inlet aircon and for a flourecent light in the equipment room. Lastly is the UPS for the Panasonic PT-AE8000 projector.



I must still do the wire management and neaten everything up behind the equipment redface.gif Luckily you don't see any wires behind the eq. without the camera flash. smile.gif

I'll take some pics of the completed room as well as screenshots when I have some time. Thank you once again for all the great wishes and compliments - everything is so appreciated. biggrin.gif

Till later,

Will

Man, ek kan nie vertel hoe opgewonde ek is vir jou.Dit is nogal die reis vir seker.Jy het werklik 'n baie unieke en pragtige ruimte en ek is bly dat jy dit met ons gedeel het.Lyk soos 'n vroeë Kersfees vir jou en jou gesin.Goed gedoen.

The rack looks nice and trust me you will have plenty of time to do wire management should you so choose. I just have never chosen to do so and mine still looks like a rats nest, but I'm really OK with that. biggrin.gif The only sad thing is that your location makes it really hard for me to just drop in and pay you a visit.

Again well done, you have a great space, now go enjoy it!

Regards,

RTROSE

Oom Will
Really looking good congrats and this is real inspiration for me to start my own room.
Have you watched any 3d yet how would you say is the ghosting, also if I may ask how much did you pay for the Panny in ZAR.
Thank you

Good work, I am impressed with your work.

One question: How did you affix the fabric to your top & bottom masks? It seems to me that AL and Correx aren't the easiest things to secure fabric to.

Thanks!

Paul

Hi guys, thank you very much. I'm really enjoying the HT immensly. My little girl LOVES the big "TV". I told her that there's an elf living in the PJ and he shines his torch onto the screen. biggrin.gif

Paul, I've used spay-on glue on the corex and velvet - works like a charm. Just make sure to clean the corex before using the glue, 'cause it sucks dust like nothing else!

Dirkie, dalk gouer as wat jy dink!

Will

Hi guys, I'm still alive!

I'm enjoying my HT very much. I got myself 3 pairs of Playstation 3D glasses and they work very well with the Panasonic 8K. I haven't t watched a 3D movie yet, but the 3D files and trailers I've downloaded looks great.

I must still post my final pics of the HT, but I managed to loose my tripod's quick release shoe, so I can't mount my camera to take longer exposure pics.

Till later,

Will

Hi guys!! I stand with a red face redface.gif in front of you. I still haven't taken those final pics. One thing I can say is that I LOVE MY HT VERY, VERY MUCH! biggrin.gif
There is one or two things I still want to do or change, but at this time it's not a big priority. The few of my friends that saw the HT in action, was vey impressed.

I'll try to take some pics soon.

Till later
Will
