I am making a house with a fairly mediaum size 15'6" X 23' foot dedicated Media Room with no Windows and one Door. I need help selecting my home theatre equipment.

My Budget for all the equipment can rise to as much as 10 thousand dollar. However, being a Value Shopper and not an audio/video phile. I despise to buy equipment where price increase is dispropotionate to increase in quality. Furthermore, I love deep discounts(Don't we all). So would be looking for equipment with justifiable prices and sales.

So here is your chance to prove your AV prowess and hence the subject "shootout".

My requirements:
3d is a must to add the wow factor to my home theatre (or is it? You tell me)
I am not native english speaker so need a centre channel with the most clear sound. So that I can understand the dialogues.

I would read the shootout thread here:

I would probably go with the Epson 5010 and a screen with a little gain to get the most out of 3D, look into the Da-
Lite High Power screen as one potential option. However, if you are a gamer and care about lag, then go with the Sony hw30 and pair it with a very high gain screen for sure (like the Da-lite HP).

Since your room is somewhat large, it sounds like you may be getting a somewhat large screen.

3D is neat, but the amount of good 3D movies out there is limited. I find the animated movies are generally better in 3D than the regular movies... (How to Train Your Dragon is one good one)...

That said, probably more people find some 3D stuff they like than people that don't like 3D at all (but there are definitely people in both camps).
