How Much Have You Invested in Your Current Home Theater?



When it comes to your home theater, is money no object, or do you pinch pennies?

A home theater is a blessing for those who have one, and it needn't cost a fortune to get good picture and sound quality. In general, the more you spend, the more potential there is for truly great performance, though high prices certainly do not guarantee it. Also, as cost increases beyond a certain point, any gains in performance generally become smaller.

These musings lead me to ask, how much have you invested in your current home theater, including display, sound system, and source devices? If you've built a dedicated room, please include acoustic treatments, ambient-light control, furniture, decor, professional calibration, and construction as appropriate. What proportion of your budget has gone for video, audio, and environment?

About $10.5k the way my room sits. Art, audio, furniture and all.

Good thing my HT is also my living room (only one room to fill) but I hope to change that some day.

Current Items:
70" Sony LED TV - $2,500
Art - $500
BD player - $500
Receiver - $1,000
Sofa - $2,500
Eames Replica - $1,500
Remote $300
Surge protector - $500
Sub - $1,500
Rug - $300
Xbox One - $500
TV stand/coffee and end tables - $1,300
Rug - $300
Blu Rays - $1,500
DT STS - $1,500
Center/surrounds - $1,500

Shouldn't have added that up... $16,200 OUCH!

I'm about 5k with speakers & Denon X5200W receiver for Atmos... I'm about to buy the 65" 1080p 8500 plasma which will place me @ 7,500 dollars total. I'll post pics when my place looks like a human lives here.

My speakers are all used Chorus II's, Klipsch surrounds, a giant Klipsch center speaker and a giant Velondyne bass cab... it's pretty crazy for a room this small. so I have a 7.1.4 setup... the modules on top of my chorus II's are all junk which will be replaced with atlantic techs.... 8,300-ish dollars by this december probably... that will do me for a while. Do disc collections count?

That doesn't seem like enough to require a special rider. When I told my insurance about special high cost items they weren't interested in anything under 5-6 figures.

So far I'm at about $2300 for my dedicated theater. This includes everything, electronics, construction, furniture, you name it. Keeping the cost this low had its drawbacks but I'm pretty happy so far with what I have.

I have a more detailed break down in my build thread but I think right now I'm at 40% display, 30% audio and 30% construction/furniture. I still have to buy finish trim and paint, but that's it.

IMO Furniture shouldn't be included unless you built a dedicated room or it is specifically theater furniture. Otherwise, it is just another room in your house that you were probably going to fill with furniture anyway.

I'm putting the finishing touches on my first dedicated room right now. It's absolutely nothing fancy, yet I've estimated that I've got around $10,000 invested. What I don't want to think about is how much I've spent when you include everything that I have phased out over the years.

AVS has ruined me. In the past I would never consider my theater to be a budget setup.

I'm right around ten grand retail. Thanks to open-box buys, my real cost is closer to $8 grand. I've had more invested in the system in the past, the current manifestation is one of my most cost-effective rigs.

Pioneer SC-55 AVR
Samsung PN64F8500 Plasma
Crown XTi-2002 Amp
DIY Subwoofers (X4)
Behringer B215XL speakers (X2)
Pioneer FS52 speakers (X2)
DIY HTPC
Sony BDP-S5100
ChromeCast

Plus the cost of some fresh paint, carpeting, DIY acoustical treatment, a few bucks for cables,

I did the last room for $12k all in (2.4:1 AT 'scope screen, 7.1 surround). I set the initial budget for the room I'm doing now at $15k—at least that's what I told the family CFO. It'll be closer to $20k when it's done (2.4:1 AT 'scope screen, 7.2.4 Atmos surround).

I'm at about the $5000 mark and that's a lot for me a regular blue-collar guy. I'm sure some guys on here have this much invested just in their cabling. All that matters at the end of the day though is that you are happy with your system no matter how much you have invested in it.

Display - LG OLED
Receiver - Denon
Speakers - Klipsch
Subs - Rythmik

If you count just the equipment, I am probably around 25 to 30K (that of course doesn't account for the countless upgrading we all do and the money lost in that process). If you throw in the room, furniture, acoustic treatments... I am closer to 50K.

I'm a big fan of going used...

... but I still have way too much in my theater. I try to look for used values with companies that stand behind the product.

I have a classe CA5200 5 channel amp that I paid less than half of retail for and a SSP-800 processor that I paid less than half also. The SSP had a small issue, but since I had the original receipt it was still under warranty. Sure, a bit of a hassle and delay but saved me almost 5k off of retail.

So, while I'm into the amp and pre-pro for about $7500, they would have ran me north of 17k had I gone new.

Speakers I have some Salk Soundscape 8's. Same situation, paid about 66% of retail, had them refinished but otherwise like new. Got the matching center channel new, but saved on the veneer as Jim is a great guy and had no real use for the veener he had left.

I did get my Oppo 103 new and my Plasma new.. but that's it in my system.

If you want to get into the "higher end" I highly recommend going used from good reputable companies and finding out the warranty transfer situation.

Penny-pincher? (Raises hand). I voted $1k-5k.

This is a converted spare room/bedroom, ~ 13'x 14'.

What I didn't count:

- Construction Labor. Did all wiring, drywall, floor treatment, built-in bookcases myself. My wife made the curtains.
- Receiver. Had it already, a 5.1 pre-HDMI receiver, but adequate.
- Speakers, 2 pair, Sony SSU-2000 largish floor speakers on low stands to put them at ear lever. Already owned, getting a little old now, but none the worse for that.
- Hauppauge HD-PVR, HDMI splitter/HDCP stripper, HDMI -> Component converter. For captures. Already owned.
- Two comfortable chairs, love seat, coffee table and corner table. Table lamp in corner and floor lamp.

What I did count:

- 70" Sharp LED/LCD, reduced price floor display, cost ~ $1,400.
- Center speaker and subwoofer, both Polks, about $200.
- Construction materials, including hardwood flooring, less than $1,000 all up. Includes a large "Persian" rug that covers most of the floor. (I like the room lively for Classical music).
- HTPC, 8-core, built myself, some of the parts re-used. With BR-ROM and BD-RE. 8 TB internal hard drive capacity, plus 14 TB in externals. ~ $1,000 bucks.
- Roku 2 XS, refurbished. $60 bucks.

Not as good as what many (most?) of you have. But I defy you to do it more cheaply and still have something reasonably good.

I say I am right at about 7500.00.

Heck I got right at $11,500 just vested in Bluray movies, which honestly is only about 680 titles at a ruff avg price of $17 ea!! I have more money tied in movies titles. lol!!

Perfect timing for this question as I am currently doing a "family room" in the basement

TV- $2K
Speakers- $900
Sub- $900
Receiver- $400
Misc- $200 (wires, mount, surge protection)


So I guess when all is said and done probably around $5,000 for just electronics (once I factor in blu-ray player, 2nd Tivo, etc....)

Maybe he put in the basement and wanted to raise his water backup insurance (which typically is pretty low). I did that for my basement.

I will echo the sentiments of many here regarding who's asking...you or my wife? 2 way different answers. All I tell her is how much I saved on the deals that I found!

My first HT was a DIY screen (screen goo $200), some LOL Bose cubes and a Def Tech sub from ebay, an entry level Denon AVR and an NEC LT240K projector. That totaled about $4000.

Without the room construction/furniture, I am projected to drop approx. 13K on AV. Hoping that delivers a killer system. My first one was cool, but it definitely didn't deliver a single raised hair.

My Theater Build

Equipment List: Denon X5200, Epson 6030, 120" Carada cinemascope screen, Panamorph U480, Oppo-103, Emotiva XPA-5, SVS PB12-NSD, LSA Statement LCR & surround speakers, Def Tech ProCinema 1000 rears, DefTech DI5.5R Atmos overheads, Grafik Eye 3106

I am in the process, so some of these are 'planned' spend items, although I am getting close to buying - so, fairly locked in on my 'as yet' un-purchased items.

~$16K General Room Construction
- of that, $8.5M is what I would consider a result of "Home Theater" (dedicated Mini-Split & Sound Proofing, grafik eye)
~ $12k Equipment ($3.5k speakers; $2k Subs, $1.5k receiver, $.5k DVD,$0.6k Screen. $3.7k projector)
~$8.5k Furniture (9 Palliser Lemans; 5 Bar Stools, ~12' Back Bar w/ Granite)
~$1.5k Fabric Panels/Sound Treatments (best guess)
~$38K... OUCH, hadn't actually looked at in in aggregate until this moment

This includes doing the framing, electric, low voltage, fabric panels,painting all myself... hired out drywall & will hire out carpet. I am doing DIY Subs & Screen, and am a member of "Direct Buy", saving me some $$$ on furniture & equipment.

Of course, if the Epson LS10000 comes out before I buy a projector, that might pump up the $s a bit more...

Room build out including all finishes and equipment was about $30K when I completed it back in 2006. Since then I have upgraded or replaced several components. The most recent was a new PJ and retiring my old faithful Panny that delivered trouble free service for nearly 8 years and through 4 bulbs. I would say total dollars spent is just under $40K now. As hobbies go HT is not really that bad compared to others that I am immersed in. The family has had thousands of hours of entertainment and continues to enjoy it. I have to say that now my first born is in college it get's much less use. He had weekly gaming marathons in there so it does sit idle a bit more. It is still the only place in the home my daughter wants to watch football games and other sporting events. Just cannot beat a 12' screen (or bigger) for live sports.

This is such a hard question, because I've had different iterations of a home theater since 1996, and generally swap one piece of gear at a time.

Right now though, what's hooked up is a $2500 projector, about $2000 in speakers, a $1300 screen, $1500 or so in audio gear, and $1000 or so in sources. Which adds up to $8300, which is more than I would have guessed without adding it up...

this is kind of tough, cause what I've spent, and what it's worth are pretty different.

I imagine for many of us on these forums, that your theatres are worth considerably more than you spent. I kind of feel like I over spent big time on some of my early purchases(speakers) and I've probably SPENT over 15k, but I think I could replace all my gear for about 9k

displays: f8500/x35 ~6000
avr: pioneer 1018 ~400
sources: HTPC, ps3, xbox360, wii, cable box, dvd player ~ 2500
seats: ~3000
screens: one was bundled in with a previous projector, so ~ 300
misc: paint, fabric, carpet, install materials, switches... ~ 500
speakers: I actually don't even know. the initial investment was right around 1500, but they had a 'trade in program' which I took advantage of nearly every 3-6months for about 2 and half years. I would estimate I spent around 4000 in total, but unfortunately, I could be way off on that, if could be much higher I bought them when I was 14 so it's been a while.

total: $13,700, plus speakers

Displays: Samsung PN64F8500/JVC X35
AVR: Pioneer VSX-1130K, 7.1/5.1.2 audio
Sources: HTPC, PS3, XBOX360, Wii
Control: Harmony One
