My room was limited by the fact that my stairway came down the middle of my basement and so its max width could only be 11'. So, its ending up being roughly an 11' x 19' room with a 103" diagonal 16:9 ratio screen. My wife describes it as "cozy" and should be a decent enough room for 6-7 comfortably.
I have a Mitsubushi HC-3000U Projector, a Harmon Kardon 247 and am using B&W speakers for all channels, the rear & eventually the rear effects being in-wall to save some space. I bought a Grafik Eye to control the lighting which I just got installed this week and absolutely love! One of the best toys for the room effect yet!
Future upgrades are easy... Once I can afford a perforated screen and an anamorphic lens, I'll be going CIH and hiding all the front speakers behind a larger screen. Eventually an HD DVD or Blu-ray player and a 1080p projector, but gonna wait and see who wins before putting much money into that area. I also have a Lifetime TivoHD box down there so that I can downloan Unbox movies...
