Thanks for the compliment. I wired everything myself with custom length, heat-shrunk cables throughout the rack - except for HDMI of course. It looks even better now, but these are pictures I had from 2 years ago. Take a day and just sit down and map out your rack in Rackspace and then buy lots of Velcro. smile.gif I love a nice neat rack! Not just on the theater.... biggrin.gif

I recently upgraded my setup, and while it's not necessarily "complete" I don't expect any more major changes for a while. This is part of the main pathway through the house so it's not a fully isolated room and there were limits to how "dedicated" I was willing to go.

It's a pair of folding room dividers. They're mostly for light control. They have louvers on each panel, and back when I was still sometimes using an LCD TV I could roll up the window shades and open the louvers only on the rear-facing panels, which would let some light into the room but keep it from directly hitting or reflecting off of the TV.

20110401-window-screens.jpg

Now that I've switched to just a projection screen there's not much point in having them open while using the projector, but they still look nice and also keep people from stepping on the cable bundles that run along the floor under the windows.

Agree it looks very good. I really love the lounge and bar area...I wish I'd had the space to do something like that outside my theater.

Here are some notes of the build :

Theater room:

- False Screen wall : 40" depth between screen and back wall.
- Back wall is treated with denim based insulation.
- Double dry wall with green glue + fiber glass insulation.
- 8" raiser for 2nd row seating.
- Lutron IR switches for 2 zones of lighting.
- Equipment room at the back of theater. Custom equipment rack (nothing fancy).
- Fan from cooler guys to cool the AVR.
- Monoprice 12 awg speaker wires.
- HDMI and Sub cables are from Monoprice as well.
- Screen is 150" 2.35:1 DIY using Wilsonart designer white laminate. Mounted using French cleat.
- Small screen stage with LED lighting for glamor smile.gif
- Solid Pine doors.
- Went with Solid pine French door for theater entrance.
- Power recliner seats from Lane furnishing.
- Using Roomie app in my iPad and iPhone to control the equipment and lights.
- Still using JBL Venue series speakers. Would like to upgrade to better speakers and have been auditioning for a while.
- Dual XS30 subs from Power Sound Audio
- Panny AE7000u 3D projector. Image is plenty bright and nice smile.gif
- Onkyo 807 AVR. Looking to upgrade to an AVR with Audyssey XT32.

Nothing wrong with your HT. My editing room has a similar feel without the projector. Nice.

I remember when products were built to last.

Awesome theater!!!!

Question is your theater ceiling painted black or some other color, it is hard to tell. Is it a fiber optic ceiling or painted stars on your ceiling similar to what nightsky murals does? Just curious your theater is awesome...

He has more picts. But this is my favorite theater build I've seen on here. The exact colors I want. Just great. Need to investigate his masking, to see what he's doing.

That's wasn't flying... That was falling with style!
