Basically 2500 sq ft down stairs is a very unremarkable run of the mill three bedroom house. Upstairs the remainder of the approximate 3900 sq ft is the theatre lobby area and theatre.

As for equipment outside the theatre...who knows! It would take awhile to add up but there would be several K$ in the system down stairs with the 60" TV, another several K$ in the 2-ch system in the dinning room, another several K$ in the whole house audio... It's scary to think about!

Here's mine from the other end of the cost spectrum (low) in my 10.5' x 16.5' basement mancave.

Current HT Set-up

Onkyo SR606 - $200
LG BH200 SuperBlu HD DVD / Blu-Ray combo player - $75
Realistic Mach One 40-4024a's for L/R Mains - $50
BIC RTR43 for surrounds - $20
TSC ASW-10 Sub - $90
Infocus IN72 - $390
BOC DIY Screen - $15

Total - $840

Current 2 Channel set-up (all Vintage)

Near Mint Sansui 5500 - $35
Kenwood KR4140 (as a tuner only) - $15
Boston Acoustics A70 - $26

Total - $76


I consider myself proof you don't need to send a lot of money to have an enjoyable Home theater or music-listening experience. Plus the way I look at it -if I can make such a low-budget set-up look and sound this good and be this much fun imagine how it's going to be when I start seriously upgrading.

This is a little embarrassing but I've actually kept a log in Excel for specifically this purpose. I attached it below for you guys, though it made me .zip it first since it won't take .xls. Over the last several years every time I buy something new for the home theater it goes in the log, and even stuff that I've retired from the theater stays on the list for posterity. Everything from speakers and displays to cables and wallplates, there's even some costs for my DIY materials in there.

In any case, my current home theater setup cost me $8,696.93, with an associated retail price of $13,260.22. The MSRPs have to be fudged here and there, but it helps me believe I've gotten some decent deals Plus the MSRPs do not include the associated tax or shipping that would accompany them, while my costs do, so I'm not kidding myself too much...

In addition to the above there's $2,767.49 worth of "no longer used" equipment, the lion's share of which is my 50" Sony TV that I replaced with the DIY 110" projector screen. So all told over the last 7 years I've thrown $11,461.42 at this hobby.

The next thing on my list to buy is an Onkyo TX-NR3007 to replace my aging Yamaha with no HDMI. The poor guy turns 7 this October and while he's worked like a horse his whole life it's time to give him a break. That will bump my total another $1,200 or so unless the closeout sales I've been waiting for come to fruition after the announcement of the 3008s. I'd kill to snag one under $1k...

I started my mission a few months ago to try and squeeze every ounce of value from every dollar and this is what I came up with. Read prices in amount paid either used or on sale vs. regular price new. All prices in Canadian.

47LG55 1080P (47" LCD) bought 18 months ago: 999 new+tax/1599 regular price
tilting/swiveling mount: $120 with tax&ship new
Yamaha RX-V565 receiver $550+tax new / 600 regular
PS3 blue ray/media center/console wired to PC for HD streaming: $200 used/400 new at the time
Portable 500 GB USB drive for HD audio playback on PS3: $115 tax in new
Wii with 3rd party USB sensor bar $210+tax, $30 for sensor bar
3 X Energy Take FPS for L/C/R: $300 used total / $1500+tax reg price
4 X Energy Take LCR for surround and back: $400 new on ebay incl ship/duty/ $1500+tax reg
Monitor Audio RS-W12 sub: $400 used / $1399+tax new
Cables/wire/accessories/speaker mounts/etc from monoprice: $200 incl ship/duty
LED strip light kit for backlighting: $50 incl ship new
2 X leather loveseat dual recliners: $2500 new
Powerbridge in-wall extension: $100 incl duty/ship new
Wire raceway: $50 new but I bought from a guy who had surplus. Reg price would have been about $130+tx
Paint & supplies $150

Still have to buy an A/V rack to replace my old one.

Total price paid approx $6300 including seating. Reg price for all new would have been about $11,500.
Biggest savings were my mains + center and sub all used but in like new condition. Also saved $600 on TV on boxing week sale. Also don't forget how much we all save by ordering from monoprice
I don't consider myself cheap, but rather a smart shopper...I rarely pay reg price for anything.

HT: Yamaha RX-V565 | 3 X Energy Take FPS, 2 X VS Surround, 2 X Take LCR | DIY Subs: SDX12 APR15 & TRIO12 Dual APR 12's | 47" LCD

Music: Yamaha RX-V863 | 2 X Energy RC-70 | MA RXw12 Sub

Bathroom: 2 X Energy Take LCR

Car: Sony Xplod HU, Xplod 6X9s, Kenwood 4"s, Alpine 12" Type-S, Rockford Amp,...

Speakers (Vandersteen Quatros, VCC-2, V2W, VSM-1) ~= $12,000
Electronics, including TT (Adcom 555, Adcom 2535, OPPO BDP-83SE, Parasound AVC1800, SOTA Sapphire, Belari 129, Sony KDL-52XBR2) ~= $10,600
Audio, video cables, misc "stuff" ~= $500

~ Total = $23,100

Upgraded over many years (20+)

Edit: These are the retail prices (retail at the time purchased - not now, as some of this gear is older and no longer available new). The amount actually spent is significantly less...

Those prices are MSRP, not what he paid. At least I hope not. As an example;
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...DP-6020FD.Kuro Knock 40% off of those prices. Still a lot of money.

my first system started out "expensive", i was shock when things started to add up.

Pioneer vsx 92 txh elite receiver (amazon $1500) new
samsung bdp 1500 (bestbuy) on sale $230
Sony Bravia 60 hz hdtv 720p (on sale $899.99)
Hsu bookshelf speakers each hb1 mk2 $149
Hsu Center speaker $239
Hsu Vtf-1 $499
Hdmi Cable Dynex 29.99 (2)

After all the gear it came close $ 3546.98 and for future upgrade would be to get a multichannel amplifier to use it as a pre/pro.
