I'm sorry, I did not write to disparage. 135 inches would be better. If you can try to understand me ....

I think the wide angle lens of the camera makes the screen (and that whole end wall area) appear smaller than it is.

The laptop and red clock radio are not part of the home theater.  It looks better with the ambient lights turned off, I swear. View is from couch, looking straight ahead, because it's for leaning back in the couch and watching the 21.5" screen, I just angled the picture to show all the components of the A/V system.  The screen shelf slides fore and aft and is on an articulated arm thing.  

 

3 channels of bi-amped power from an old Kenwood VR-7070 receiver.  Pair of 6" JBL Northridge N26 II bookshelf speakers and two 10" JL Audio ported enclosures that are isolated from the floor and wall because it lives on the plastic shelves.  It was a tight fit, but it's perfect.  A Mac MINI lives on the top shelf, between the speakers.  By far, the best system I've ever had.  It moves so much air.  I wish you could hear it.  It's all in a very small room, about 10 x 10.  Please don't laugh.

Quick question. What is your viewing distance from the front row? Also is the 120" across or diagonal. Thanks. Oh, and your room looks great.

Version 4.6 (The "upgrades" never cease)

EDIT: This is a cosmetic re-do of my previous theater, as of 6 months ago, prior to replacing the ceiling speakers with RSL's..

The next post shows the original version of the theater: (Theater 4.1)

I will be adding wides, and center heights (and possibly a new processor) in the next few weeks.

Looks good. What subs are those and what LCR's are you using?

Wow. Beautiful. Can you provide a link to your build thread here. I don't see sig links and such with my phone.
That's a very comfortable looking way to watch movies. Very attractive.

Nikko...rockin' it old school! I remember looking at some of their gear in the 80's. Always makes me smile when I stream music over my PS3 (soon to be PS4) into my 40 year old Sansui AU 9900 integrated amp and crank it. Investment in good gear is a good investment.

Thanks ! They do sound warm and crisp to any speaker you hook up to them :P

Well, I don't know about the steamed vegetables, but judging by the shot of your rack I think it's safe to use "Blow the $#!+ out of it LOUD!" as a descriptor.

You got it right :P

Most theaters with effort are captured here, whether I appreciated their particular design choices or not.

This was an interesting, and often disheartening dig. The vast majority of build threads are abandoned at various stages. Sometimes reasons are given but more often then not the thread just stops dead. Many I think don't realize the cost or commitment when they begin and simply lose interest. There are the dreamers without either motivation or means who ask a multitude of questions but never post more than napkin ideas. There are those who are nearing completion on a solid, but uninspired build who get discouraged by the lack of member responses and log off before posting finished pics. There are those of course crushed by the recession (depression?) who realize what an expensive and extravagant hobby this really was. Worst of all are those who succumb to injury or illness, making one last optimisitc post, promising to return but never


Guess I just slapped up a screen and called it good since I'm not sick, dying and have somewhat completed theater......rolleyes.gif

Don't feel bad, mine's not on there either. My build thread was not very complete...too excited finishing it to post some of the pictures when it was a work in progress. I did post final shots at least. smile.gif. No hard feelings tho. Nice to see someone going through the effort to archive all the fine folks work, just in case. smile.gif

I think what you did was very cool and I think MANY people (even the members who posted above) appreciate the effort you put into it. But this is the internet afterall.... You are damned if you do, and damned if you don't. rolleyes.gif

I made my search based on the number of replies to help weed out the 1000's of threads that start but go no where. I just followed your link, and yes, your theater is fabulous. Unfortunately I missed it simply because of the post count. I will add it to my personal collection...which is what it shall become once again.

It's all good.........

My sub situation has been my biggest issue......as you referred to earlier and edited.......ie. having enough sealed subs to enable desired house curve without changing aesthetics...........not an easy proposition especially targeting a specific house curve. So hopefully, I'll have four 18" sealed drivers which is more then 99% of most home theaters.............for those who live in these forums.............. 4 18" drivers is commomplace.

BTW, room and rack have been done for almost four months,................refer to earlier post. Yeah, I plan to build coffer ceilings this Summer and add a Trinnov TEQ 12 to signal path............if that qualifies as incomplete.......so be it........

As I said above, I think what you are going is great and there really were no hard feelings. If I made you feel like I thought I was slighted, I am truly sorry. I designed my theater to disappear when the screen came on so it makes for a pretty boring design and build thread. smile.gif

Keep up the great work with the list. Having recently build a theater, I can tell you that projects like yours can really help someone who is getting started. And, like deewan said, anytime you take the risk of recognizing folks, someone is going to get left out. Can't avoid it and definitely should not let that stop you. smile.gif

/edit: And I really meant that last part. Don't stop making your collection public on my account. Keep it out there and make it available. People can PM you if they feel like you missed one and you can add it if you want. Public is much better than personal, in this case.

I did the same thing. I found the build thread and the amount of planning and work was incredible.
Congratulations on a tremendous accomplishment.
