Figured this would be a good spot for my first post. Have been a long time lurker of this forum and have learned so much in the process. My room definitely fits the requirements as small at only 13' deep and 11.5' wide. As I wouldn't call my space a complete "build"... it is a complete DIY room that the wife and I enjoy very much. I kept the budget as small as possible and used previous A/V equipment and waited until a projector was on sale that fit the bill. I also built all of the movie poster frames and the dvd rack. This being the only spare bedroom (999sq ft 2 bedroom house) it had to be completely reversible.
Ben Q w710st projector
110" DIY BOC screen
Pioneer Vsx -516 reciever (older but still has digital audio inputs..so i made it work)
Sony ss-b1000 book shelf speakers for surround and center channel
Klipsch Synergy 12" sub
Phillips DVP-5982 DVD upconvert player
HTPC (well kinda) Dell Inspiron 537 .. has some upgrades, mainly used for surfing net and streaming movies
Logitech K400 wireless keyboard
Phillips Presigo SRU 8008 Universal Remote... also old...but has learned every key I've tried to program... despite being 5 years older than most of the devices it now controls. It even controls my $40 Lutron Maestro dimmer.
All new cables were purchased from Monoprice.com thanks to a lot of recommendations from this site. Was very happy with the quality, price and fast shipping.
Pics below are as it is now. Still have a little touch up but its pretty much finished. Would like to add some tower speakers to my setup sometime though.
BTW sorry for the picture quality..it was taken with my HTC one and the camera has been acting up. If i get a change I'll grab a few pics with our actual camera.
Simple poster frames ...cost less than $5 ea to make
Picture quality is very good given the cost of projecter and BOC screen
The Lutron Dimmer that controls the lighting. Funny thing is...it says nowhere in the directions that it can be programmed by another remote. Figured it was since its IR...but strange it wasn't mentioned anywhere.
