Hi everyone, been lurking here almost 2 years must say most of you have some Awsome set-up's

a little about us...shortly after buying this house 12 yrs ago, i started work on the Theater, today the theater remains the same except for some modification, 2 yr ago we added Conrol4 to our set-up, i then started revamping the Theater removing all audio equipment from it, thus giving me room for much bigger Screen, only the stage area was modified, now all Audio is centralised up-stairs in a dedicated wall unit encased in the wall

in september of 2012 work started in the basement untill April 2013...

a Man Cave is Born ( Chez carl ) to the already existing theater, the Game Room was Added complete with dart Board Pool Table & Poker Table, and The Bar...Yes The Bar
also a almost Compete Gym (wifes idea) i would have opted for larger Game Room...wife insisted on her Gym

i have successfully eliminated every damn Remote, no more clutter...i now enjoy real theater Experience with one touch Control4 does it all, an automated sequence comes into action
