Excellent theater room! I especially like how it can be opened up when not in use. Very creative!

Thank you!

The removable "blinds" were constructed using carpet from one of my previous theaters and some plywood from Home Depot.

You did what I would have done had I kept my upstairs gameroom as my theater room. I like the curtains that can be pulled to close the room off. Question though: instead of how you block the windows off now why not just make a permanent curtain that can be retracted to let it light? Seems kinda cumbersome. Overall though excellent job and I love your room.

The blind solution I implemented was the most practical because I'm only renting and my job will require me to move in two years.

I had the P-2000, but sold it on eBay late last year in favor of the Onkyo 707. I miss the P-2000 because it never had any of the problems that the 707 does as far as quirky/annoying HDMI issues. Then again, the P-2000 couldn't handle the new audio formats that I need to feed to it.

Within the last two weeks I upgraded my VP50 to a Duo - I've just updated the equipment page to reflect as much. I also noticed a few of my product links were out of date, so I just updated them as well.

Additionally, I just added a link on the equipment page to my first out-of-college home theatre when I was living in Colorado and fixed the "Completion Pictures" link for my old HT in Germany.
