On a budget you need to seek out VALUE, maximum performance at a moderate price.
Here are my picks
Emotiva 7 channel airmotiv speaker package - $1486
HSU subwoofers, package of two VTF-15h $1749
Epson 5040 4K projector $2500
Oppo 4K bluray player $549
Denon AVR X5200 receiver $1000 (acessoriesforless.com) 9.2 channel 140 watts channel
SilverTicket 130 Inch wide 2.35:1 format screen (Amazon) $420
Amazon Fire TV $90
Total of equipment $7800
If you want Atmos ceiling speakers get the RSL C34E at $125 each, if you want more than 2 you will need to upgrade to an 11 channel receiver/amp.
then look at:
Rtheaters.com or HTmarket.com seating
If you want a 4K projector add $2500 and get the Sony 285
thank you for your help.
Just print our your list and go window shopping here in Melbourne. I have problem with the brand that you list for speakers, subwoofer and Denon AV. I was told those are not readily available and can come at much dearer price then what you show here. So i was given the list below by a home theater design staff member after i show them your list. I did ask for a little better quality pictures and sound. what do you think of the list below ? I have never heard of BenQ projector and Paradigm speakers ? are they good quality? should I change the projector to Sony 320ES or 520ES to get 3D capability ? my parent love 3D, i think it gimmick but i would love to make them happy.
The list below cost 14k USD
