Well as an update to what I posted a few days ago, it's looking more and more like I'm going to join the ranks of having a small, but dedicated theater. A big concern I'm having is the number of speakers. Right now I'm running 7.1 in a much larger living room, when converting to such a small space does 7.1 become overwhelming?
Right now I'm looking seriously at going with a BenQ 1070 (seems to be the consensus projector pick in the under $1500 price range, plus the extra money will help convince the wife) and going with a 92 inch screen. Other then actually moving in there, removing a ceiling fan, and hanging some blackout curtains, really not that much work to be done.
