The one thing I would note is only the two outer seats in the couch recline. The loveseat does not mention recline at all, much less power. I think you can do better.

I would suggest going to ACE Hardware and getting some thin rubber washers to place in the mount path. That will add friction you need.

Pretty much specialized. It needs to be omni-directional and the audessey software has been calibrated to the frequency response curve of that mic. Another mic placed vertically so it got...

I will keep this basic and chock full of my opinions.

First, I have never heard a ceiling speaker I liked, especially not for LCR. By definition, the sound is diffused and can't be associated...

As usual, what jeff said :)

You are going to be extremely tight on adding a second row in an 18 foot room. I chose to go with a bar and stools for my second row in a 19' room.

The only important part is whether you feel good about it. You don't need my validation. FWIW, seems ok for an entry level theater and a good price.

I'm not sure I would even trust the furring strips. They are usually 3/8" pine.

How about a cable loop and wall anchor? Keep it slightly loose so sound doesn't transfer into the wallboard, but tight enough that it would engage before the speaker tipped dangerously far. Better...

Hi AJ,

If you are questioning a large LED set due to reflections, then I would really have issues with recommending a projector. Any light that was bad enough to cause reflections will totally...

Seems just a bit unbalanced to me. Everything is pretty well matched, but the bookshelves for the L+R seem to be weak in comparison with the center.

I was hoping others would comment.

The one thing I would add is that sound creeps through any weak spot. Sound blocking fabric is seriously compromised if you leave the edges open. I would use a...

Those will be unamplified. Your original post made me think you were hooking to a computer. No specific recommendations at $100. I would suggest you go to amazon and search "2.1 speaker system"

The red and white (rca) inputs can be adapted to the 3.5mm plug that most of these systems have. Be careful though. I have seen the RCA plugs with both...

Your post isn't clear whether you want future access to the hole. If you do, and the hole is small enough, you can use Jeff's trick.

I also agree with the others. The ideal screen size goes up as you watch for awhile. I am betting that you end up with 110-120" after living with it for a couple of weeks.
