Hello all,
Looks like a great forum. I joined in 2007 when researching my last tv and never really logged on again until recently. The wife and I bought our first home in 2012 which came with a great open floor plan. I have since installed the following:

Panasonic P60GT50 Plasma wall mounted
Onkyo 7.1 receiver
Polk CS2 Center channel (wall mounted below screen)
Polk Monitor 60 towers (FR L&R)
JBL Northridge book shelf speakers as side and rear surrounds
BIC PL-200 Acoustech Subwoofer (I think thats the model #)
Harmony 900 RF remote (components are located in a closet in a seperate room)
Playstation 4 for games and blu ray
All wiring purchased through monoprice and is hidden in walls.

I love it and it gets the job done, but I am ready to spread my wings and upgrade. I do have a full unfinished basement with almost 8 ft to the support beam and over 9 ft to the floor joists. Width is disturbed by support posts which I will not spend the money to relocate. (limited to 9ft between outer wall and posts). Length is the full length of the house. I am tossing around the idea of a narrow budget theater or an open concept finished basement with projector and screen. Either way I go, I must include a spare bedroom and a large walk-in cedar closet for the Mrs. I plan on leveraging the knowledge in this forum to help me along the way and I will keep my progress updated when I start.

Hi everyone,

I've looked on here on and off over the years and decided to join - I bought a Samsung 65" TV that has a thread going and I added a comment. I love home theater and have played around with setups over the years but have been idle last few years. With this TV purchase I'm active again. I enjoy installing nice surround sound setups that don't cost a lot of money ( mine has 3 powered subs in it... lol ), and enjoy keeping up with technology. I've enjoyed using technology to help calibrate sound systems, now I'm looking forward to learning more about calibrating the video on my TV.

Hey Everyone,


I'm Jeremy, a 32 year old bachelor who has a good career and is ready to buy a house.  I joined because you guys are uncompromising, and aren't happy with "not bad for the money".  The second I get a house, I'm putting together the best possible components I can find.  AVSforum is making that easy for me!

Hello. It's good to be here.
I'm from Greece and I'm searching for my new a/v receiver.
post #853 of 1183



I lurked for awhile on the Sony XBR-55X900A Owners thread to learn about the 1080p 3D issue (HDMI data rate limits or reduced FPR or both?) and joined to participate there.



post #854 of 1183

Hi, I've arrived here to solve my problem with a remote control.

Hi, everyone! glad to be here!

post #861 of 1183

Hi folks !!

"Bonjour" from France ! As you may guess, I'm French. I joined your big community in order to be in aware of all new products which are always available a couple of months before Europe.


FYI, my pseudo "LapinFou" means crazy rabbit.


post #862 of 1183

Greetings, everyone! My name is Patrick, and I've been lurking for a while, gathering information and selecting products based on comments and reviews.


I'm in mid-build on a basement refresh that includes whole house audio throughout. My goal is to have the basement be my "media complex" (with bar, of course), into which all AV sources from everywhere in the house feed, and from which all viewing locations may view any source. The goal is "everything everywhere"--if my kids want to watch a movie in their rooms from the theater's Blu-Ray player two stories below, they should be able to do it, and figure out how to do it themselves. Camera security system will be an integrated video source as well. Z-wave for scene control and various sensor/controller integrations.


It's an incremental project, with the basement being both the starting point and the eventual hub and heart. Lots has gone in to underpinning the future expansion of the system, including running riser conduits to levels above, running hardwired network everywhere I can, etc. I can do malice to the basement to my heart's content, but I promised my wife I'd keep the holes in the upper levels to a minimum. So far, I've been lucky to find chases with enough space in them. 


My component choices for the moment are things that I already have (e.g. Onkyo TX-SR706 receiver) and modest-cost components I can easily source and install myself and expand or replace later (e.g. just took delivery of an HTD Lync 6 whole-house audio package). The theater will run on an Epson 5030UB at 20' to a 134" diagonal screen. I've never done a projector before, so I'm eager to see how that works out. There are four other rooms in the basement level plus the outdoors that will be integrated. Not quite finished with all the pulls


I figured this was a good time to stop lurking and become a proper member of this site, as most cable has been pulled (2800 ft so far) and initial setup and testing of components is about to begin, and I'm sure I'll need the resources you guys have to offer.


When I'm not tinkering with this stuff, I'm a hardware and software guy, most recently going datacenter design, build, and operations. So, I have high expectations for myself for the finish work on the cabling and installs. I'm sure I'll make lots of mistakes, but I'm having a great time just doing this project.


Thanks for listening!


For you redditors out there:

TL;DR I'm doing my first projector theater and whole house system and I'm way into overdesign and overkill. Wish me luck.

post #864 of 1183

Hello all, just saying hello because Scott Wilkinson told me to. Glad to be able to chime in on the discussion now!

post #865 of 1183

Hey all, just to say I'm glad to be part of this community, I'm generally looking for tips how to improve my home theater system and I guess i could say I know a lot about computers :p

post #866 of 1183

Howdy, I'm Geno been a long time reader/lurker finally decided to take the plunge…

post #867 of 1183

Hi all!
zvipster from Denmark here.

I am interested in both store bought and DIY, and atm I have 4 dali 102 satellites, 1 dali concept center and a BFM TableTuba sub, powered by an Onkyo HT-R370.

post #868 of 1183

greetings! i'm a professional musician (and retired federal employee) at this point trying to figure out if it's possible to cobble together a decent sounding surround system for my high-ceilinged, odd-shaped living room from pieces i've already got (a monsoon 4.1 flat-panel pc system) and/or other things i'm familiar with (small powered jbl nearfield studio monitors) and an older Rotel RSP-1066 or Lexicon DC-2 processor or something similar. definitely lower tech and low-budget at this point, just seeking a noticeable improvement over the sound coming from my samsung flatscreen speakers. currently trying to understand backward compatibility of different surround formats - will an older dolby or dts version processor do any useful processing on a newer dolby/dts format recording?


have a great day!

post #869 of 1183

Hey All, from the first amp and speakers I bought when I was 20 I have always wanted a dedicated Home Theatre/ Men cave room. It finally happened where I have the option to build such a place in my unfinished basement.  Have started my reading a while back and can't wait to make this dream a reality! looking forward to all the valuable knowledge found in this great site! Thank you!
