... here is what is taking place on the new gear including the Runco.
Nothing has been installed yet.
The Runco VX-11d was back-ordered and with that being said it has since come in.
The dealer and I discussed it and decided they would hook it up at their place.
That gave them the opportunity to (Burn-In) the new lamp.
The new lamp needs 100 hours burn in before any of the picture adjustments can be made.
So they ran it 110 hrs. and have went through those adjustments at their place.
It will make things go a lot smoother once they come here to do the install.
Because of the Runco being back-ordered and also because our existing Integra Research Pre-Amp Processor & DVD Player were 10 yrs.old.
We decided to also purchase the new Integra DHC-80.3 & Integra DBS-50.3.
One being the Pre-Amp Processor and the other the Blu-ray Player.
Well, it turned out the New DHC-80.3 was back ordered.
Then the Rack Mount kit was back ordered.
With all that going on we made the decision to replace all the HT (Home Theater) seating from Ekornes a (Norway Company) with their Stressless line of seating.
Oh yeah it turns out that the two recliners & ottomans are back ordered.
OK with all that going on I got back with my A/V rep. at the house yesterday and we agreed to relocate the speakers to the correct positions for the 7.1 surround to work correctly.
Now that is also going on with him running the specs in his computer to see what it says regarding the ideal location for the speakers.
As you can see it has turned into a waiting thing on this end.
It is all going to take place but it has not been what one would say has been Quick.
Here are two links for you if your interested.
One is the New Ekornes Stressless seating.
Today was delivery day for the Ekornes Stressless "Double Ottoman".
Guys this looks pretty darn sweet.
I am really pleased with this now that it is actually in the HT.
Pictures don't do it justice.
I know some of you might be wondering what all the extra boxes and Rails to the Pull-Out are doing in place.
Waiting patiently for the install on the New Components.
So it is all going to stay right where it is for now.
A few Pictures with it in place.
Here is the link to the new Integra Pre-Amp Processor & Blu-ray player.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1390107Integra DBS-50.3

Would like to know your experience with this one. Is this a middle of the range unit?
Not sure I can be of a lot of assistance on this for you.
This one is the latest Runco that has been announced at Cedia last Sept. 2011.
I have "Not" seen it in person yet.
Mine is still at the dealer waiting to be installed.
I right now have the Runco VX 5000ci with DHD Controller.
I have had it for 9-10 years.
It is a 720p or 1080i projector.
It is in conjunction with a Stewart Gray Hawk 123" 16x9 screen.
The screen has 4-way remote masking.
I have been very impressed with the current unit in regards to the picture on my 10 foot screen.
This is a dedicated HT so it is DARK inside.
No outside light coming in at all.
The very 1st Post here tells you all about the new Runco VX-11d I just purchased.
And the Article also has the price.
To be honest with you the few decisions I think you have to make on your end 1st are these.
(1) What size screen ???
(2) How much do you have budget wise for a new Runco ???
If you have made those decisions then it would be easier to discuss your options with Runco Projectors.
