Hello all!

Here are some picks from the beginning of my small theater build to my current set up. I started out with Bose 901 fronts, an Infinity center and Bose 201 for rears and an 8" yamaha sub. I used a yamaha Rx-v595 to power it. The screen is 106" and an Epson 8100 projector. The whole thing worked but not good enough.

I had to upgrade and am very happy with my new sound setup. Polk RtiA3 and CsiA6 for the fronts. I've installed 8" Yamaha in-ceiling for rears. Just recently choose to upgrade from the Yamaha sub to a Bic f12. I am running it all with a Denon Avr890. It is a huge improvement in sound quality. I moved all the equipment to another room to give a cleaner look. I use a harmony 1100 to control it all through rf.

The A6 sends out some awesome sound and with my new f12 and the A3's it ties everything together! The movies are amazing. I am 70 movie and 30 music right now.

For my source I use an atv2 and a lg bluray player. I have an xbox 360 mostly for racing. And that's another story on the big screen!

I think my next move will be to upgrade the fronts to RtiA5's or to 7's. Not sure. And move the rtiA3 to the rears. The height of the fronts will be an issue in relation to my screen. So I will have to look at that set up. Like I said very pleased with my set up but always looking to improve and upgrade as I go.

There are a lot of amazing set ups out here in AVS! I've picked up some great tips and ideas as well from other forum members and their posts. Thx.

Please let me know what you think or leave any comments.

Nice setup. I'm pretty sure we have the exact same screen and projector which I've always found to be great for image quality. Do those blinds behind you pose much of an issue or do they get the room pretty dark for daytime movie viewing?
