I'm an easy hour from Milwaukee and am there all the time.
I own a Sharp XV-Z12000 Mark II, and a DaLite HiPower Roll-up screen (fairly transportable). I throw 106" diagonal 16:9 on it.
Toying with the idea of a BenQ W7000 or a Sony VPL-HW50ES.
My audio is provided via a full Ascend Acoustics 7.1 system (340 SE's LCR, 200's side and rear) and a pair of Hsu STF-2's I picked up ages ago for a song, that produce plenty of thud in their corner positions. The seats are a couple of sofa's embedded with Aura transducers.
I started my room with a DIY screen, an Infocus X1 (after being tempted first by the debut digital goodness that was the Panny PT-AE1000U...I've been on here a while), and a DIY anamorphic lens. I picked up newer equipment over the years, learned a lot, and started the build of the room proper, but then life got in the way.
Having finished a major remodel upstairs, I'm now back to tinkering with the batcave, and hoping to start up the actual room build once again after the holidays.
*shakes off dust*
