  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    My Mitsubishi HC1600 is on it’s last legs. It’s only 720p and does not have 3D. I think I would be fine with 1080p instead of 4K. The projector is on the ceiling. The screen is 130”, and we sit about 12 feet from the screen. It's in a light controlled room. Any recommendations for a new or used...
  3. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hello, community. I originally posted a while back about a home I was planning to purchase. Unfortunately, due to some realtor shinanigans that home was unable to close. Thankfully, I have purchased a newer home with a space I think is better suited to turn into a dedicated home theater room...

  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    My brother-in-law just moved into a big new home with some decent existing speakers and wiring, and I'm trying to help him with the equipment he needs to take advantage of it. The previous owners didn't help me out much beyond labeling most of the cables (thankfully), but this is what I think...
  8. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have a venerable old Marantz SR5003 receiver from 2008, driving a Paradigm Cinema 100 5.1 speaker/sub set. Occasionally I think about replacing the center channel speaker with something heftier but overall I’ve been very happy with the sound of this setup, which is in a fairly small room in...

    Hi all. I am upgrading a media room and am now at the stage where I would like to build some good speakers for the Right Left and Center speakers. Currently I am leaning towards the Philharmonic BMRs. The room is treated, though bass traps have not yet been installed. It is 14x20 with 10'...
  13. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I'm considering buying a subwoofer. In this previous post, I didn't think to ask what my power requirements are in order to fill my room, so, three months later, I asked here and 95 people opened that thread but no one responded. I guess that that new message was too long and they didn't read...
  14. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I'm considering buying a subwoofer. In this previous post, I didn't ask what my power requirements are in order to fill my room, so I'm asking now.
