I'm curious about the "living room setup." Doesn't that tile cause all sorts of havok for sound? Semms like there's not much in the way of environmental absorbtion in that particular area to diminish the reverb that would be bouncing off of the floor/walls.

Also, what's up with the pulldown screen to the left in the bedroom? Again, just curious, not complaining. You've avtually done a good job of cramming so much into such a small space...although I'm not able to understand the need for two different setups in the bedroom.

Evening,

For me, the living room sound fine. You can easily distinguish where the sound is coming from. I'm sure it will sound better w/rug and something to absorb the sounds off the wall. As for the bedroom. I always had the projector with the ps3/360 connected. However, the 3rd xbox I won a kinect/360 bundle in a local contest and the PS3 belonged to a friend that didn't like PSN. He wanted to trade it in to gamestop but they only offered 100. I gave him 150 for the ps3 slim (250gb).

Now lets talk about why 3 systems.....Initially, I used the PS3 in the living room for bluray and gaming. However, gaming on the TV w/out game mode on and the 120hz on there was too much lag. So, I bought the bluray player for the living room so I would not have to always change to game mode and adjust the 120hz on the tv everytime I watched a movie/played games. The kinect, I had to place it in the living room. So my original two 360's are played as follows (along w/the 2 PS3's in the room). The projector is used only on the weekend when I know I will likely be on for more than two hrs. When I get home from work and just want to unwind for a few games, I play on the tv in the bedroom as I don't want to turn on and off the bulb so frequently of the projector. I would love to play more often in the living room. But with the new surround system, the family is ALWAYS on it. To be honest, I only touch the TV in the living room when we're all going to watch a movie or when we play kinect.

As for the projector and the screen. It' nothing more than a white wall that I placed a rod on the top and ran a black cloth on the top and sides. Unfortunately , the curtain was not long enough to be drapped evenly on both side(up and down). When the lights are off and game/movie is on you do not see that the the sides are not one symmetrical piece. It's not in the viewing screen at all and I placed the curtain so you can't see that I was not able to paint the corners very nice. LOL

The projector in the room.... XD

That so sounds like something I would do...

SouthFLDan, that 55" is a bit too far in viewing distance for my taste. I sit like 6 feet from my 52" and I wish I was closer. I miss my 67".

Should get a 65" Plasma.

prophetizer:
Yep, I have icons for each of my favorite channels. Go to the website below, select your harmony remote and import the icons. Don't worry, it's free.

Actually, for us, the tv is perfect where it's at. However, I have a 136" screen that I sit appx 6ft away. Close enough for you? LOL. I played around a lot with the tv, the problem is from the love seat, if we place the tv any closer the picture quality is no good from the side.


Thanks guys for looking @ my vid

I can understand that. I have very limited space in my apartment, mostly due to the furniture I just got last week. It's too big and there is NO possible way to make it look right with the TV in the equation, so it's all a bit tight... the only solution is to move the TV setup on a wall that would be VERY far from the seating distance... which is a no go for me.

looking for an affordable low and wide stand, with no ikea in sight.... any recommendations?
post #7931 of 8018
Good Morning,

Long story short, I upgraded my audio in the bedroom. Please see link below. Is it overkill? 100% Yes. I can't have the volume over 55 as the subs will actually make the shelf where the projector is shake.

Where's the "overkill?" I certainly don't see it.

Overkill for my room I mean. It's a small 12x12 room and the windows/walls feel as if they will fall when I hit medium level. Overkill or not, I love it.

You made it far with your gear in a short period of time. This hobby can suck the life out of your bank account. I bet within a year or so you buy another HDTV to "upgrade", and maybe even add an amp. You will find things to buy. Getting it past the woman is the hard part. Good luck!

How right you were my friend! But understimated it by too many months.

You guys might remember my post on the previous page of my set up over the years, well now this is my set up. Hopefully this forum is still around a few years from now, so I can do another update.

A 54" Panasonic VT25, pre broken in and calibrated.

What do you guys think?






The stuffed animals just put that nice touch that shows that I'm married.

(P.S. That's not dust on the first pic, it's some artifacts from resizing. )

I really like your setup and the coffee table with glass top with pictures underneath is similar to what I have also. Got a coffee table from Ikea with glass top but no pictures yet since it's already covered with a laptop, ipad, remotes, magazines =(

Oh and when I saw the dust artifact I was like ok cool I don't feel so bad now, lol! I thought I was the only one with dust problems

Yes, I know but his and mine are the same since we both have glass top entertainment center and it shows up like nobody's business. This new old house that I moved into though is worst than anything I have encountered. My folks house is pretty clean and so are my friends houses. It's like a blanket of dust everywhere and I clean every week.

Which reminds me, I was suppose to place an order for one of them air filter machines.

I also have an old home (around 122yrs old). The dust is terrible so I feel your pain. I've been told that the older windows are a big source of the dust. Which seems to be true as rooms that I have gutted and redone with drywall/insulation/vaporbarrier I still get the dust covering. I haven't started replacing windows yet as there are around 30 off them.

Sounds like a good idea. A good air purifier might help a lot. I am thinking about getting one just to have once since I live in NYC.
