Back at the start of last generation I had a 20" tube with coax only. Topics like this on Gamefaqs lead me here and kicked off my attempt at creating a respectable gaming setup. It is a fun pursuit, but can be expensive.

One thing I have learned in this pursuit, don't over spend on any one purchase. You tend to nitpick the more expensive items far more than the cheap stuff. I enjoyed my 50" $700 plasma far more than my 70" $3000 because it was much easier to accept the flaws. Never again will I dump that kind of cash on a single item.

I'm planning to drop some cash on my next HDTV....around $2k if the Sony I want is still available. But the rest of my equipment is quite modest. It's the dedicated rooms I'm talking about. When I go to purchase a home, that's going to be one of my criteria is finding a place with a room I can convert to a media room.

My next step is projection, $1000 gets me a solid projector and a screen. My only other option is to wait for Vizio's 120" that will probably cost over 10k this fall. Projection gets me a lot more for my money, and it isn't hard to control the light levels enough to keep it watchable. A screen like Black Diamond would be nice, but that would cost more than my 70" did.

projection and gaming is just pure magic.

Our recent move to New Orleans dashed any dream I had of setting up a true theater room with a projection setup- you don't put basements in a swamp. I had an enormous basement in Atlanta, but never got around to putting anything together. That said, I recently finished turning an unused room in my upstairs into my Man Cave. Painted all of the walls a darker color, got some blackout curtains, bought a 60" plasma, and stole my 5.1 nice sound system from our family room and put it up there (my wife was actually pleased). Added in some in wall speakers for rear surrounds and now have a very cozy, fully light controlled gaming/movie watching room. I love it. It's not what I wanted (i.e., a projection system), but it's made me very happy.

A man needs his getaway room! I'll post pictures tonight for anyone that cares.

Looks awesome and what I wanted to do in my last house. What are the dimensions of that room?

This thread makes me wish I was ready to start my projection build. Too bad I am holding out for LED 1080p models to hit the market in force later this year. It is going to be a long 4-6 months of dreaming of what could be...

I'm with you. I moved into this house a year ago and I have plans on fixing up my upstairs for a my man cave. Looking at these pics makes me want to go up there and start working on it.

This thread makes me want to throw rocks at mine. I am very envious of some of your setups smile.gif.

Small and cozy, but the kids don't come up there and it's reasonably removed from the rest of the house so I can keep the volume up without waking everyone.

@mud76: nice setup. Obviously like the ht gear, but the bikes and U2 memorabilia are pretty awesome as well!

Mud76,

Cool old school theme.

I rode flatland up until a few years ago (on a custom Mirra) and I was a sponsored rider (in Florida) for several years... a very long time ago (hehe).

I rode an SE Quad for years (until it was stolen) and then went over to Haro (and owned a little of everything in between).

I have met and/or ridden with many of the old school freestyle greats but now (at 44) I just fall a bit too much trying to relive my youth. redface.gif

Compared to some of you, milk crates and bricks biggrin.gif. I'll post a pic of mine after I have a bit more coffee.

Thanks , there's Vintage, Old , Mid and New School all there. They range in dates from 1980 to 2013. They all still get ridden regularly, as the weather is always warm here (Brisbane Australia). We get 300+ sunny days per year. There's a group of us that get out and about on the first Sunday of every month for a ride and a beer. Check out ozbmx.com.au for more pics

Talk about falling, I recently over estimated my ability and broke both arms, one requiring surgery. Still getting over the embarrassment.

Here is a current pic of mine although it will be changing soon as I am just about done with with the finishing process of my new TV stand. Here is my equipment list:

Panny TC-P50G25 - calibrated using d-nice setting (absolutely gorgeous picture)
Onkyo TX-NR1008
PS3
PS4
XB1
Seiki SR212 region free BD player (not pictured because I ran out of space until my TV stand is finished)
Raxxes PD800 surge protector
eD[c]12 LCR (the center channel has the upgraded CD)
BA MCS100 speakers used for surrounds and front heights
Rythmik FV15HP

Picture before the X360 was taken out


a/v rack currently


This is the TV stand my buddy just got done building for me...my job is to do the finishing. The two outside compartments are both 19-1/8" wide so I can install rack mounted shelving/accessories and the center compartment is 15" wide which will accommodate my over sized center channel. biggrin.gif

Great setup guys! keep it up, here's mine .
post #57 of 139
Some real nice setups here. I will probably re-visit this thread when I get a house... But for now this is my apartment setup.



Only the RF-82 II's are connected, the RF-82 I's are only decoration. The 82 I's are actually my roommate's, he's moving out soon and he was apparently going to miss having my speakers.

Here's my setup(still a work in progress...)

May I ask why the dual projectors?

All these nice setups make me cry inside with desire and sadness. Will post mine once I get the tripod out.

Picture from iPhone 5. Clearly I'm not a professional photographer.

My setup:
Display: Panasonic 65GT30
Receiver: TX-SR805
Speakers: Energy Rosewood RC-30
