Hello all! I've been into this hobby since around 2004 and I finally have a space outside of my living room for my home theater.
I recently moved into my new house here in NW IN and I have moved my theater equipment in. I had to get the theater up and running very quickly as we had family coming in from out of town shortly after the move, so much of the current setup is temporarily rigged to be functional. The house is a split level, and the theater is on the finished lower level with half of the room underground. I have separated the room with my collection display case (Ikea Pax wardrobes with custom acrylic doors) for my masks and statues (my other hobby). This created a room that's 17'D x 15'W x 10'H. Right now I have black fabric covering the one window, and am slowly covering the room with Joann Royalty 3 black velvet. This humble setup is only the beginning. I have many upgrades planned (4K and Atmos) but will list my equipment as it stands today. The system sounds/looks amazing but I have severe upgradeitis!
My preferences are around 80/20 Movies to Music. My goals are based around making it more of a theater than a music listening room. I'll make a separate 2 channel system in my living room.

Starting with my 92" screen, then I flipped the entire room around for the 138" AT screen.
And a shot of my collection, false wall for the theater.
