This thread will chronicle the transformation of my general purpose media room, seen here, into a dedicated home theater room as seen below.
I'm not fortunate enough to have unlimited space or an unlimited budget, so I have strived to create the best Home Theater experience that I can within the confines of space and budget available to me. Hopefully sharing my experiences will help someone else out there to create their dream theater as well.

Future Plans: (as of April 20, 2012)
Although the major changes are done for now, I plan to continue to keep this thread updated as I make modifications and add or exchange components in the future.
I've been collecting 3D Blu-rays for awhile now and really have quite a few, so the next step will probably be a 3D capable projector. Not surprisingly, I'm leaning towards the Epson Home Cinema 5010 but considering "splurging" on the Epson Pro Cinema 6010 as I am a sucker for the black chassis. I'm also interested in what the fall brings...
