Seems like there are more of these "Show Me" threads popping up. Thought it would be nice to have a central spot linking in to all of them.

Do we have a dedicated carpet thread? That would be good to add also, especially since that is where I am at in my stage of construction.

Don't forget to check the screen wall thread as you can see a lot of stages there as well.

Thanks

Was reading posts today and was just reminded that it might make sense to have a "show me your garage conversion theater- Before and After". Of course that thread would not be complete without a link to the Sandman's thread.

The components are in a room that is accessed on the left of the screen behind the drapery. There is also a utility room with electrical panels and rear access to the components accessed on the right of the screen behind the drapery.

We are very happy with how it turned out! I hope there are some ideas that others will find helpful.


Looks great. You should open up a thread on your room in the Dedicated Theaters section.

Not sure what you mean by Clear, but I would say just as detailed and better in some other ways.

I have a Sony 52-XBR4 lcd television, a Panasonic Plazma and a JVC 1080p HD-1 front projector.
And I can say that the projector is by far the most pleasant to view. Not just because of the size. It is pixel free viewing, unless you are way too close, and I would not ever view from that close! It is also jutter free with no movement blur or fatigue factor at all. It is more film-like and less "digital looking", All in all, much eazier on the eyes(less fatiguing).

I have just finnished my theater after I moved, I had the JVC in my old house theater and loved it. Until the theater was done, I bought and used the Sony in my den and I liked it. It was clear and bright but a little harsh .Once I got my theater back up running, I realized how harsh the Sony really was.
Some material might look better on the 52 inch because it might hide some image quality flaws of the source. But with good quality HD sources I definately prefer the Projector.

Just my Opinion, but that is how I look at it.

what about home theater lighting? not just rope lighting, but HT lighting in general. I'm looking for this stuff right now and can't seem to find anything.

How about adding a "theater walls" thread link? I can't seem to find anything specific. Referenced a lot of different places, but no definitive thread.

Specifically insulating a staggered stud wall?

What about a link for DIY masking systems. With masking systems costing up to $12,000, many like me have to look at DIY for a masking solution.

I don't know if there is a thread showing all the different masking systems, but I have a thread for my DIY, budget design I could add. So let me know if one is started or if there is one already out there.
