I had just gotten this in the mail. It might be of interest to some folks on here...
Greetings Home Theater Enthusiast:
Are you building a serious home theater room in your house? If so, then you
know there's plenty of advice on the internet to help you. You can find
information on a/v manufacturers web sites, on home theater dealers sites,
from the enthusiast e-zines, and, if you visit home theater chat groups,
from other consumers. The problem, though, is how do you sort through all
this stuff for what's real and what's not? Wouldn't it be nice if there
were guides to building home theater rooms written by seasoned Custom
Installation professionals - guides that not only teach the basics but
shows how the pros do things?
The companies of Home Theater Village think there should be and have
decided to help. They have banded together to produce a series of 12 Home
Theater Design Guides that will cover all segments of home theater design
and construction. These guides will be unlike anything currently available;
they will be written specifically for the DIY home theater room builder by
practicing custom installation professionals.
The best news is that these guides are absolutely free. They are available
for download via PDF files. The bad news is that only the first one is
available now. Rest assured, however, a major effort is underway to
complete all 12 of the guides by the end of the year.
The first guide is a complete tutorial on choosing and installing front
projection screens in home theater rooms. It is a 76 page guide with ten
chapters covering all aspects involved in the design and installation of
projection screens. To download your free copy of The Front Projection
Screen Design Guide and sign up for the releases on the other 11, visit http://www.hometheatervillage.com/design_guides.html
