Hi all! I've been enjoying these forums over the years and thought I would finally post some pics...
We bought a new house last summer, and it already had a dedicated HT room in the basement...
Floating walls, insulated, black ceilings, no windows, gray carpeted walls, separate component room for access to back of components. It was great...
All that was a great deal... BUT, when we took possession, the previous owners left all the equipment as well! A little old, but all flagship gear in it's day, and still rocks...
What they left:
Denon AVR 5803
Denon DVD 9000
KEF THX 5.1 speakers (TDM Series)
DaLite 106" Cinema Contour Screen
SIM2 Grand Cinema 720p projector mounted to the floor joists above
What I added/changed so far:
Panny PT-AE4000U (The SIM2 didn't work)
Panny BD55 (HDMI direct to projector, optical and analog 7.1 to AVR 5803 for newer formats)
My old Boston VRSPro THX dipole surrounds to make it 7.1
JKP Affinity 0.6 gain screen in existing Cinema Contour frame
Row of 3 recliners
Row of 2 recliners on a new carpeted riser
Black slip-covered couch as the front row
My very first HT system back in the 90s, was the old Denon AVR 5600 with Boston Acoustics 5.1 THX speakers, so I loved fact that they left me a "newer" Denon flagship...
Anyway, I can't think of anything else I want to do right now in the room... I'm always looking for suggestions though!
My wife bought me a kegerator two Christmases ago, and a popcorn machine this past Christmas, and I would like to build a wetbar/second kitchen in the area right outside the theater room door, where the keg and popcorn are currently. (No pictures of that)

Chris Seymour at Seymour Screen Excellence was kind enough to send me another screen frame to swap out. The new one is able to accept the Seymour magnetic masks for Scope masking. Pictures of the masks installed are at the end of the thread. Thanks Chris! The masks are really slick!
