Happy New Year!

I should be ready to host a GTG in about 2 or 3 weeks.

Don't expect a sweet HT like Ivan's though. Just a cozy music listening room that doubles as my HT. It only seats three people. Might be upgrading from a 60" to a 75" TV near the end of the month. If so that'll mean some down time for the room while I cut new holes in the wall to relocate my center speaker and accessories to accommodate the larger TV.
I'm in.

I have subcontractors doing some work which should be completed in about 2 to 3 weeks. Just in case, I think we should select a Saturday in February. So we need to pick a date. The Saturdays in February are the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. In March the Saturdays fall on the same dates but include the 31st.

Hey guys! We have a Marantz AV8802a unopened/new-in-box that was purchased from AVAD (an authorized Marantz dealer) for a client whose construction was delayed. By the time they restarted the project he decided to go with a McIntosh MX160 instead. The 3 year manufacturer's Warranty can still be registered with Marantz. I just listed it in the AVS Classified for $2,400 including shipping UPS Ground insured. If someone local from the LA group wanted it, I'll deduct the $50 saved on shipping for $2,350.

New projector from LG. Check out the form factor (around 6 inches by 6 inches and 18 inches tall).





Hang it from the ceiling or place it on the floor.

Hey everyone! I’m trying to get the next step going for my basement/foundation theater I mentioned a few weeks ago in this thread, and am looking to see if anyone has any recommendations for local LA structural engineers, architects, or contractors that you trust? My dad and I would like to DIY as much of the project as possible, but we definitely can’t determine the loads and building codes ourselves!

Specifically looking to find a structural engineer to come by first and give me an idea just what the scope of the project is. Being that I might want to add some doorways in the cinder block and a stairwell from our first floor, I really need to know if it’s doable without weakening the unit’s structure.

Thanks in advance!

I also would be interested in a meet up so I can introduce myself and steal some advice from ya in person!

Hey Peter613 I am seriously interested in the 8802a. Can you drop me a PM?

Cheers
