Yeah Karl; what we've decided to do is 16" shelving, with the "skeleton" 4" out from the screen-wall...and a 20" top-shelf to pull everything back together. That'll give the deepest equipment, which is definitely the Integra Pre/Pro, 4" to breath and allow for cables, etc. I have a Miter Saw, and what my GC can't do with that (shallow cuts), he does with a Circular saw. I'll give him this; he can cut a damn straight line.
OMG, please don't confuse this old pic as my "current" HT...lol. This was from when I first got the PJ; I quickly put together what is now the screen-wall, bought a $10 piece of Thrifty White Hardboard from HD, and started playing
Home Theater. Talk about sinking my build; bearable Spring, turned to unbearably hot Summer...turned to Fall, turned to Winter. When I realized it was now too cold to work on the room, and I hadn't done...oh, the little things like insulation, drywall, HVAC, etc. The missus and I retreated to an unused bedroom, where I settled for FCR and an 80" painted screen for a while, but then even that was keeping me from getting the room finished. So I packed all the gear away, and right now all movie-watching is done on the very pedestrian, and un-HT like Kuro in the Family Room.
decided to do some treatment to the room; for the most part I am documenting that
part of the process in this thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1125238
(as always, much props to BIG). And lastly, for seating, we currently have 2 Berklines from HT v.a1 (the townhouse we moved out of just as I was about to finish the room). We'll start nice and cozy like that, and then probably look to add 3 more recliners for the rear row.
I've put my hands on a source for Lin, so that should be arriving this week. And my GC and I will either start getting the furring strips attached, and Lin up this coming weekend, or I might hold off until I take some vacation time I need to use or lose, starting April 1. Got carpet picked out (Shaw Back Stage), so I hope things will start coming together quickly for a premier sometime in April. That is if Monoprice ever gets speaker cable back in stock...lol
