Thanks for any advice you can give beforehand.
My father is looking to build a dedicated home theater and music room. Probably a 70/30 split respectively. He has a 17'X20' room that will require some sort of audio isolation and then treatment. Don't want mom hearing him or him hearing the washer/dryer. He has a budget of around $20,000. This being said, there is no reason to spend that much unless there are significant gains that can be made. He is looking for a projector setup and a 5.1 + system. Ambient light will be able to be completely controlled, but watching a football game while doing a crossword would be preferable (i.e. a projector that works well w/ambient light).
Looking mostly for ideas on
-audio isolation and treatments;
-Projector and screen suggestions. I have made my own screen which works well with an epson 6010. I don't know if this would be a good option a better projector is chosen.
-Sound system selection. possibly need a Blu-Ray player as well.
I am open to any and all advice. it would be great to have multiple choices so we can decide where to spend money for the greatest return.
