Hey, thanks for the warm welcome guys!
The room is roughly 25ft long X 14ft wide. The ceiling is just shy of 9ft tall (thanks to the builder being lazy about where they put the home sprinkler system) UGH! LOL
So far I have a Samsung 7.1 surround sound system that I am using upstairs in our TV room that I am going to bring down into the theater once it is done.
I am desperately searching for a Blu-ray player that is WORTH buying. I thought Samsung, but then keep seeing horrible reviews for them, and last night I thought I found "the one" (the LG BD390) but then found horrible reviews for that as well. I am getting so frustrated with blu-ray and I dont even own one yet! LOL
As for a projector, I am searching for the right one. I would like 1080P and it does not have to be very bright since I will have no light entering the theater and can control the lights I installed in there. My ideal requirements for the projector are:
ability to place in the back wall of my theater (25 feet from screen) and project onto a 120 to 150in screen
I need to buy a screen as well, so I am looking for that too.
Thanks again for your warm welcome and please keep the suggestions/thoughts coming. I am completely new to the dedicated home theater world and can really use all the help you all have to offer.
OH, the colors we chose (I am starting painting today) are flat black for the ceiling, a medium gray/green for the walls, lighter gray/stone for the trim, red for accent wall color, and a dark colored carpet (black/gray). The 6 wall sconces are a black metal with a frosted glass around the light. I think it is going to look so cool and am very excited!
