i'm sure I will at some point - way too early in my process right now.

I was just joking around - I have been making annual treks down to Indy to see XBox friends but that may not be happening this year.

Really impressive! Congrats!

Sorry if you have already mentioned it, but have you had the audio system calibrated yet? If so, it would be interesting to hear about the process/results.

EDIT: Can see from your equipment post, that you have not yet bought DSP's, so I guess that answers my question smile.gif What DSP are you planning to get?

So an Audyssey-Pro calibration now? In my opinion you should look very much forward to a non-Audyssey calibration once you get the DSP. I have tried both in my theater and definately prefer an external DSP.

But once again, great theater! One of my favorites on this site.

Congrats on the Electronic House article bro!! Its kinda surreal reading about it after following your build thread from start to finish lol. Can't imagine how it feels to you!? Just another notch on the belt of perfection for BIG tho right lol.

Your theater will always ring with a special air with me as I was completing my theater the same time you started building yours. smile.gif Loved to hop on AVS while taking a break to check on your progress. Plus I also had the pleasure of Shawn Byrne, coolest guy btw and what a pro, a few years ago over to calibrate my Pioneer Kuro plasma so thats cool too. That tv is in my living room now still looking amazing some 3 years later.

Once again way to go on the article my man!
