I want deep bass and at least a 7.2 surround system.
Here are some items that I am considering thus far:Projector
I am considering an Epson 5020UB 3D projector.
I want a fixed 120" screen with 16:9 format, but have been reading about a curved screen that is designed a more immersed 3D experience.Receiver:
I am considering an Onkyo TXNR5009 as my receiver.HTPC
I am thinking about getting an HTPC with XBMC, but I am not to familiar with what set up to get and how to integrate it into my system. I do, however, like the format of XBMC and the idea of storing my movies on a hard drive. So, any advice on this will be greatly appreciated.Speakers
I am considering two HSU VTF-15's for my subs or the HSU Ultimate 7.2.1 speaker system.Seating
I am considering two rows of 3 power recliners
Beside the items listed above, what else will be bendficial or needed? Power amps/conditioner, etc..
I have budgeted $12k for the entire set up. I need help with choosing my system components and speakers. So, any advice on the items listed above will be greatly appreciated.
Hello and welcome to the forum and the madness we call HT.
Photos of the room would be great, this will help me and others give advise on what you say and what we see as well. Sometimes a picture is truly worth a thousand words.
Epson 5020 - Excellent choice in a projector. I have seen one in action and it is a stellar performer.
I might be wrong, but I think a curved screen might only be available in 2.35:1. I am not aware of any 16:9 curved screens, but I could be wrong.
The Onkyo is a good choice. I would check out the specific owners forums and see what others are experiencing in their real world use of the product, goes for anything here not just receivers.
I know nothing about HTPC's others can chime in.
HSU subs and speakers are top notch. In that size of room with two solid subs like the ones you listed will really rock the house.
I think you will be hard pressed in fitting two rows of seats in that size of theater, you can do it but it will be very tight and the seating choices might be very limited.
Yes most certainly you can consider power conditioners and amps.
I'll give others a chance to chime in and provide some input.
Again welcome to the forum.
