Heh, yeah, I noticed. Does avs just not allow links to google photos or what?

Do I see from your profile image that you mounted one of your projectors backwards pointing at a mirror to get more throw distance? That's a pretty sweet idea...

Yes, my room is only 10' deep (and 12.5' wide not counting the entrance/equipment closet on the left wall) so I use a quality first surface mirror to extend the throw distance.

Interesting that you also are using your wide wall for the screen wall. Seems most people use the narrow wall for the screen wall. I thought about using my room the more traditional way as well, but mounting the screen over the window seemed like it was going to be a real PIA, and I don't think the extra 3 feet was enough to allow me to do two rows of seating anyways, so I did it the unconventional way as well!

Just stopped in to say Hello.

Figured I would post in this section. Looks like I will be moving to the Portland area in about 6 months after being away from the PNW for 5 years and Oregon for 10 years. Maybe can meet up with some other home theater enthusiasts sometime once I am in the area. Hopefully won't be without a home theater for too long with the move and all

Thanks.

I probably won't be out there until February sometime so, I will probably miss the fall ones if you do some. When I am out there I would totally be game to go to one or even host one sometime after I get a theater setup at my next place.

Wow Almost forgot I belonged to this group.
I coworker who was seeking advice from me sparked my interest again, I haven't really done much or upgraded anything the SP4805 is on life support after the framing mirror fell apart and 10 attempts to fix it, I finally fixed only it now has an external power supply to run the fans.
My KLH 12" sub's amp broke a while back so I swapped in a little 8" under the computer desk My coworker was asking about subs which I helped him select the model he was looking at and I ended up getting a new 12" for the Computer room I settled on a Jamo J12-DA while he chose the Polk PSW505.
This is way more subwoofer than my old KLH it's pretty much way more than my little room can handle
So after doing that I thought i should update my Yamaha plain jane pc speakers, I had a hard time deciding on if I should get a budget A/V receiver or Buy a pair of Kantos Powered studio monitors.
I finalized my decision and settled on a Sony STR-DH555 as it offered the most connectivity in its price class.
This had decent reviews and I had thought after my last Sony AV receiver issues i'd never buy another sony. That particular one was sony's very first Prologic receiver back when they didn't believe in having equal power for all channels, and I kept blowing the amp ic's i think it was in the shop more than in my system.
well my new desktop speakers are the very ones I was using for center channel speakers on the first receiver so actually they aren't very new but sound ok for now they are radio shack Minimus 55's I tend to hang onto stuff.
Now I'm just working on connectivity as I want to run my Gaming tower through the Sony along with the PS4 and PS3 and the 39" tv/monitor is currently connected via Toslink my desk space is rather sparse.
Anyways it's good to see this group is still around.
One of these days i'll get the garage cleaned out and begin working on my room
