But why not get good HVAC gear in the process that doesn't make a racket? Good modern HVAC gear is nearly silent even standing right next to it.
Man Vudu’s picture quality is outstanding. The first 4k film i rented on it was Hobbs & Shaw....the PQ was so good (audio was meh due to lossy Atmos), I rented Joker last week. Loved that movie so much I bought the disc today though.
On the HVAC gear, once moved (mandatory to make room for the theater) and now placed outside the soundproofed shell, there was no need to get any other HVAC system. The system is only 6 years old, and thanks to the soundproofing I can’t hear it!

Thanks for the congrats, and I also appreciate that you liked the part about only paying with cash. I just had to be sure to include that in the write-up because I feel so passionately about the subject!

Thank you! Oh man I had been dreaming about this theater since before we ever broke ground on the house! My last theater I really loved (There’s a thread called “BrolicBeast’s Living Room Theater” here on AVS that chronicles that build), but this theater included all my dream items and experiences!

Thanks! I’m happy when all the pages on the build thread provide help to those who read. It’s a tone of content to wade through, but I tried to be as detailed as possible.

Yeahhhhh I remember that review! Naw that wasn’t me (I don’t drink) but I’ll certainly offer you tons and tons of premium Apple Cider as well as a “hard drink” I’ve created that can rival any alcoholic beverage. Few people can handle it, as it involves pure squeezed lemon juice and garlic together. There’s a cup waiting for you anytime you’d like to swing by.

Thank you, and I’m glad the cost breakdown was helpful. I had always wondered about the cost factor when I was just researching for this build. A breakdown like this from another AVS member is actually how the planning for this build started. I was perusing AVS and stumbled on the Dedicated Theater Construction sub-forum. I clicked on a thread and I thought “Oh, this is the rich peoples thread. Time for me to exit immediately.” Then I clicked on one of BIGmouthinDC’s builds (Bacon Race) and saw that there was a cost breakdown in there. I went though and sat back in my chair, and had a light bulb moment: “I could do this. I really could do this! IT would take a couple years, but the time is going to pass whether I do it or not....so I’m going to do this!!!!!” I immediately sent Jeff (BIGmouthinDC) a PM and we started preliminary conversations.
