It's been a while since I've posted as I've been enjoying my HT after having planned it for years. Got an H79 and have only done some minor tweaking with Avia, but it's spectacular. Just wish there were some better movies out lately to take advantage.
Right now I've got the H79 hooked to a Gefen HDMI switcher, HDTV via Charter Cable, Panny S97, Denon 3805, 7.1 surround with Def Tech speakers (including a Supercube I), DaLite CV 110", MX-600 URC remote, remote lighting with an X-10 compatible switch, and 8 electric recline Berkline 090s.
I won't plan on upgrading for quite some time. Back row of the Berks are at about 16' from the screen and front row is about 10'. In the front row you can see a little pixelation if you look for it. But the front row is for guests usually, and all they can say when they're over is, "WOW!".
Just finished the tiny alcove lobby last night. Had it painted a rust color and have a small area with a popcorn popper, custom made HT sign, and a Star Wars Episode IV poster.
