This is definitely a very expensive Forum!! What started for me as a friend saying "oh, you're thinking of doing a home theater in your basement, take a look at avsforum"... is now, me doing Sound Proofing, Mr. Slim HVAC systems, planning acoustic treatments, 2.25:1 aspect ratio's, CIH projectors, acoustically transparent screens, doing clips & channel everywhere in my basement... OUCH... budget, what budget?LOL
What started all this is I was upgrading my projector and my AVR and then one thing lead to another ~ I think they call it project creep.
My wife keeps reminding me, I better spend time in this theater when it is all done!
