Recently we decided to NOT spend bigtime $$ on a house remodel or new house, and moved our H/T to the living room all but on other side of wall from my 11 year old daughters bedroom, and gave our other kid the H/T room as a bedroom. I gutted the living room wall, installed acoustic insulation, and put heavy sheetrock up but its a 101 year old house so sound still leaks in from another wall (that I have NO desire to tear down/insulate/redo, that sucked)
We currently have a 50" HDTV plasma but prior to this I was hoping to buy a >130" screen and a PJ for movies. The new location has us sit perhaps 10' away, that would be a nice immersive experience.
Thing is, the odds of us being able to play the surround sound at anything less than shade-below-normal are low.
I'm happy that we decided not to remodel or move, but I am sad about potentially not having that bigscreen experience @home as I now HATE spending $$ at the movies, its $70/pop. I'm wondering if one or two people could watch movies on headphones but still use the PJ.
Have you, or would you consider watching movies on headphones if using the surround sound system wasn't an option? Or would you say "eff it, i'll just watch on the 50" HDTV"?
Yes, I'm "that" Home Automation Guy.
