Hello to all HT afficionados,this place helped me a lot years ago when I started the quest for building a home theater, so finally, after 7 years of laziness I finally got to organize some pictures of our first attempt at a home theater. HT was focal point of the big basement space that was about 25ft wide and from 27-32 ft deep, but uneven dimensions including the "play area" for kids. You will see that surround speakers were far from ideal position, given constraints of the space and Auddysey did the best it could. This HT was of the "unfinished" as I never got to purchasing and setting up any kind of acoustical treatments. The ceiling was heavily soundproofed with double helping of Roxul and 5/8 drywall, doing really good job of insulation. All of the equipment was in the space understairs and controlled by Harmony One. Lighting was done with Lutron Radio Ra, 4 different scenes. Screen was Carada 120 inch 2.35:1 Classic Cinema White. Projector was Panasonic PT-2000AE ( which succumbed to surge spike 8 months ago...), with Panamorph wide lens on a track. Speakers Def Tech BP7001 SC towers with built in 1500W subs ( decided to go without the separate sub, initially was thinking of Trinity or SVS), CLR 3000 Def Tech center and 4 BPVX/P surrounds ( all with built in powered subs), so full range all around. That was powered with Sunfire Grand Cinema 5.1 amplifier and two Outlaws fr back surrounds, going through Onkyo PR
-SC885 preamp. At that time had Oppo BD-95 DVD player and used good old PS3 for Blu-ray. Escient Fireball MX-100 with Sony 400 DVD/SACD changer associated with it for my DVD and SACD collection. Xbox 360 and Wii for playtime. All that connected to Panamax MX-400 power conditioner.
Now, all that was enjoyed for 7 years until we moved 8 months ago. So, that is why this is tale of TWO theaters.Luckily the new house had an unfinished 14x16 ft room in basement that was waiting to be made into our second HT
. I am at the finishing phases of setting it up and will have GIK acoustical panels placed within next 2 weeks and then I will post pics of the new space, with list of the few updates as far as components go.
