Resist buying a new projector. Must hold out for a 100" TV.

Considering what I spent in 2013 (I don't even want to add it up), I think the discretionary funds this year will go towards home improvement projects. We are looking at enclosing our formal living room and turning it into a music room.

Here's the A/V gear I bought in 2013:

Yamaha 3010 AVR
Klipsch Reference speakers
HSU VTF-2 sub (my first one needed a friend)
75" Samsung TV (my first 3D TV)
Xbox One
Playstation 4

I'm guessing my A/V spending may be lean for quite awhile. I have no idea how I talked my wife into all those purchases. biggrin.gif

I was actually. And I plan on picking your brains extensively :-)

First things first though. Need to start looking for an architect to get me squared away.

I'm going to sit back, relax, and enjoy the HT that I just finished late last year!

I think this thread should be renamed to "What shiny new equipment do you plan to buy in 2014" tongue.gif

All kidding aside, I plan on upgrading to a 3D-capable receiver, and I also need to replace my existing sofa that has been scratched to hell by one of my cats. Also on my radar as a 'nice-to-have' is an SVS SB-2000 sub smile.gif

Technically it is, But OR is on record as saying, technically they need at least Full 4K resolution to accurately deliver 1080P 60 per eye...on a consistent basis...with minimal lag.

2014 will be a year to de-clutter and minimize things in the HT room and bedroom.

But first things first, I need to build a new, larger AT screen and the big purchase for 2014 is a new projector. Besides that I will acoustically treat my HT room and black out the walls.

Maybe new surrounds. Probably some rear subs. biggrin.gif

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

3) Get a darbee for my projector setup.
4) Possibly cut the cable cord (Football and baseball are the only things holding me back).
5) Maybe upgrade my center channel from an LC1 to an LC2.

Oh and MAYBE attempt a CIW setup once 1) is complete.

Well, 1 and 3 didn't take long...

I'm interested in cutting the cable cord (satellite for me) too.  If/when you do please update the relevant threads.

Just ordered AudioQuest Leopard tone arm cables(RCA to RCA). Also ordered AudioQuest Sorbogel Q foot to minimize vibration on the turntable. I purchased and received Pro-Ject Audio Speed Box S. Will be working on the HTPC project now.

Just last year I started to upgrade my system. Purchase another Martin Logan decent sub online, picked up some power cables. This year 2 more power cables from Kimber Kable and XLR interconnects. If things go well this year a Exactpower 15a or I'll pick it up next year.also like to pick up Equil=tech don't know which model yet, and future upgrades a new Pre-Pro Processer, Blu - Ray Player, and eventually a new display. It's definitely going to take awhile to replace most of my Equipment .
