I've been designing my home theater ever since I moved into my current house (about 2 years now). The problem is, I've only been in one other Home Theater in Destin Florida and it was FAR beyond anything I could ever afford without winning the lottery. That may not seem like a problem but having that theater as a reference point is like learning how to drive on a Ferrari 458 and then buying your first car......... a Honda Civic.
It seems forward to ask this, as I feel like such a beginner, but I would like to visit someone's DIY theater, see and hear what it sounds like, and be able to ask questions of the owner about the build and costs and planning, etc. I'd even be willing to visit a theater that is in any of the stages of construction as well.
I live near Lynchburg, Virginia and if there was something within a few hours of here that I could come see some weekend this winter/spring, that would be great. Feel free to PM me or reply to this post if any of you have any suggestions of locations or would be willing to let me come see your masterpiece.
This entire community is extremely helpful and always seems willing to provide constructive advice whenever appropriate and I would like to think that there would be one or two people that would welcome a "newbie" into their HT for a demo and Q&A.
