I'm in Sherwood Park and got on this thread following Quill's posts
as I have a question for him/her.
I've been building an unpretentious HT for about 5 years now (work done only in Winter) and I'm at the finishing stage.
Everything is primed and what's left is painting, carpet install plus odds and ends.
I used to call it a "man cave", but as my wife followed all the minute work that I've done... the trimmings, the crown molding, etc... she now calls it "hers"
The room is 16.5' long, 12' wide average (wider at the front - narrower at the back) and 9' height with 12" soffit drop all around.
The screen will eventually be about 108" wide and the seating will be at 9' front row and 15' back row (on a 14" raised platform filled with Safe'n'Sond batting that hopefully will act as a bass trap)
So far I bought the following:
Polk Audio's RTiA9 - fronts (there was a killer deal at Future Shop in South Ed Common at $699 for the pair; and from here, of course everything had to match)
CSiA6 - center
FXiA6 - surrounds
65-RT - backs
... and that's about it.
Now here is the question for Quill: where did you buy the HW40ES projector?
I checked Bestbuy.ca and they only have the 55ES as an offering; Future Shop doesn't have anything Sony period.
