I'm not one for going over the top, but I do like to listen to my music and movies loud. You've spent good money to do what you can, so at this...

I can't speak for the seats themselves, but can give high marks for HTMarket. Worked with Alan, who hangs out here on the boards, and everything was smooth as could be.

If you use just enough pad underneath the posts, the friction alone should hold them in place with screws into the ceiling for extra security. Then you only need to remove the top screws to remove...

Call them anyway. 8 days likely won't be a problem. 8 months, that's a different story.

I'm doing frames now and added about 2" to each side for stapling. It all depends on the thickness of your frame and as others have said, the stretchiness of the fabric. Mine frames are just under...

There is definitely a delay when switching video modes on the 4910. For me, when going from 1080p/60 (menus) to 1080p/24 (the feature), there's a good 3-5 seconds of blank screen. I get about 50%...

I'm guessing it's micro-perf'd because he needs AT, so a Carada would not work for Jon. Plus, depending on how close he's sitting, 96 might be big enough.

As for moire, not sure. I've not heard...

Since my new theater room was both narrow and short, I went with in-wall and in-ceiling speakers for my sides and rears, but kept standard L/C/Rs for the fronts. I have B&W CM9s for my fronts and...

Not to take away from Alan since I did buy my Palliser's from him, but check out the thread about the Fusion Escapes. I had these in my last theater and thought I was too small for them. (I'm 6'1,...

You left out option C - Anamorphic Lens. This is, of course, the more pricey option, but a lot of folks use a lens with the Sony projectors. When I had my HW50, I used the Zooming to get 2:35. The...

Check with AVS as they usually have some B-Stock units for sale, and I believe they come with 90 days of warranty. As for the lamp - if they replaced the lamp, it's possible to have only 250 hours...

I'm not familiar with the SVS speakers, but I'd guess with that size room you are only going to do 1 row of seating, and the distance between your front speakers and your seats is going to be larger...

There looks to be a small, narrow panel at the bottom left-hand side of those door. If you pull one off, that'd be the one I'd start with so you could see how the rest were done, but not damage...

The Sony models automatically switch to High Lamp for 3D...does the JVC not do this? I only ran through a few minutes of 3D but didn't look to see what the lamp was set at.

I've never gotten automatic 3D switching to occur with my WDTV but I can definitely pass OU or SBS feeds to my PJ and manually enable 3D mode.

It's been a while since I looked, but I recall seeing 3D material at 1080p/60 displayed as the input frequency on my projector from a WDTV passing through my 4311. I can confirm later this week.

I think it's ideal if you have bi/di pole speakers and not too bad for direct radiating speakers. Surrounds are really for "encompassing" sound so you really don't want those aimed directly at your...

What kind of AVR do you have and what kind of speakers? If I had that setup, I'd probably mount di/bi-pole speakers on the wall to the right of the bar and just behind that movie poster. The other...
