After a couple years of working on our home theater, its finally almost done. The room is about 11.5 *19ft. (plus the snack counter area). We have it prewired for 7.1 surround sound. We are at the point where we are getting ready to purchase the fun stuff. Heres some pictures at it so far. We just put our dvds down on the shelves yesterday.








Screen wall....


for equipment I am looking at the... (would like your opinions.
RECIEVER-----Denon AVR-2807 Reciever (its in the price range, any better recievers for the price?)

PROJECTOR---Sanyo PLV-Z4 Projector (this one or the Panasonic AT-900 one not sure yet)

SPEAKERS----SVS SBS-01 7.1 system with PB10-NSD Speakers and Subwolfer (may go with the Asends speakers for around the same price range again still thinking, Havent heard either )

SCREEN---92 Inch Diagonal Criterion Series Projection Screen (not sure if I should go with 1:78 or 1:85 though)

DVD player I will probably go with tosiba HD DVD player maybe or the Oppo one

We will be done with the room in about 3 weeks. We will have everything but the Theater seating. We are gonna do that later. Been spending too much money. Got some posters etc to hang on the walls this weekend. We had to take the main door off and I am going to have to trim it, the carpets too thick. Plus need a new camera, the one we have right now after we dropped it, you have to shake it to get the lense out and it seems the color and sharpeness are way off.

I got the PLV-Z4 and could not be happier with it. Got it for less then $1600 and also got a spare bulb and 96" screen with it. Gotta love that.

update.....Just got the seats, we have the reciever and SVS 7.1 setup and hd-dvd player





On a sad side note, my 18 year dog; Ginger passed away Wednesday, We had to put her down, was the hardest thing to do we had her buried at a very nice pet cemetary near us. Got to see her today before they buried her, she looked very peaceful
Her she is....

that's a long time but it looks great. I hope I get mine done in a year.

I'm sorry to hear about your pooch. I had to do that 3 years ago and it totally sucked. Just rest assured that you gave that dog the best life it could've ever had.

Peace.

Just curious, what's the film/game with the spacesuit guy? Also, what is the seating distance to the screen?

The skin tone on sawyer isn't always like that on your projector is it? i'm sure it was just your camera cuz the girl below it looks fine.

I just followed a link here from the "Begging for DTS Sampler" thread.

Beautiful what you have done!

I am sure everyone who sees it, loves it.

Congrats,
Dave
