I wanted to post my finished pictures as many here have helped me in the process building this room. The advice and countless rooms to draw inspiration from have been key. Must say, I have had more fun planning, and building this room, than I ever could have imagined.
This is a single 13'x23'x9' room in the basement. It is hooked up to the central air but temperature stays between 66 and 70 degrees year round in this room without any help so I have the vents double closed all the time. There is an additional vent in the ductwork that can be opened or closed to help with sound proofing.

Facing the seating
The rear of the room has a bar, with seating for three, the media niche, equipment rack and treadmill closet. The room was originally used as a grunge workout room and we still use the treadmill regularly. The TV on the wall makes an easy way to get the news in the morning while using the treadmill.
To the left of the treadmill is a lighted area where the AVR, Shaker amp, PS3 and HD Fios box interface with the wall jacks for the speaker wire and HDMI. Real easy to get back there and mess with the cables.
