I did my room about 5 years ago, so it's actually due some changes: I've already welded up a steel frame to make a 'floating' shelf for the projector so that I can swap the positions of the sideboard and bookcase since I don't like how the sideboard makes the main sofa seem cramped. Afterwards I'm going to extend the pelmet forwards so it can contain some drop down black velvet curtains to make a slicker version of the 'tent' that I tried as an experiment. This 'tent' increased my ANSI contrast by a factor of 3 so is worth it from a PQ standpoint, but just became too much hassle to set up each time I want to watch a film. I will however make an exception for the showing of Skyfall which is due soon.
I just got the PMC Wafer side surround speakers which were a used bargain: I now have pretty much the same speaker set up that the BBC use in the suite where they master the Doctor Who and Torchwood series apparently, so I'm in good company. I imagine most of my gear might be unfamiliar to viewers from the USA, but has been carefully chosen over the years (mostly bought secondhand, like the Arcam AV9 for £800 instead of £3,500 when new).

Also my white JVC X35 projector.
Equipment cabinet of Arcam processor/power amps, with the Oppo BDP-93 out of sight inside the right hand compartment (it's a great player, but pug ugly IMHO
) That's my trusty Lumagen Mini3D on the top of the cabinet with the remote on top.
This is the temporary 'tent' that I hope to try to make something that will do a similar job,but be easier to set up for projector viewing:Edited by Kelvin1965S - 2/10/13 at 11:16am
