Im in the process of adding a living room 14x26. half will be the living/ht room(not really a dedicated ht room). the other is a play room, but in the middle seperating the two will have a counter w/ some barstools facing the tv.

this is what i currently have:

panasonic bd30k

wii

2 dt pm 1000

1 pc 2000

2 dt pm 800

my dillemma is this:

sell my tv and get 60"pioneer kuro/ or keep the tv and buy epson 6500u projector w/ 100" screen.i can get the kuro for cost.

what do you guys think?

and do you thnk the pm1000 and pc 2000 is too big for this room.

Welcome to AVS. We're a big site so finding where to post had be a bit confusing at first. Some tips: first, you really want the General HT/Media forum for non-dedicated theater construction advise. Second, for speaker related questions, try searching the speaker forums for a thread on your particular brand of speakers.

My advice is if you are happy with the tv you have and want a true Theater in the Home visual experience you should consider buying a projector and screen. While they keep getting bigger no television on the consumer market today can delivera Home Theater experience.


We have a nice tv - 56in 1080p - it can't give the "at the movies" feeling.


You will not be sorry if you step up from tv to Home Theater (if Theater is what you want).

goodluck

Will the room have windows? Will you be using the display during the day? A front projector may not throw an acceptable image in this kind of an environment. If you need to accomodate daytime viewing without blackout curtains over the windows, you might want to keep your rear projection set and add a projector and an electric screen that drops down in front of the TV. Use the rear-pro set for casual daytime viewing and break out the projector when you're ready to settle in for a theater experience.

thanks guys!!! yes it will have windows and i plan on getting drapes for them. i will be using the projector for mainly movies and sports games, otherwise the 50inch will be used majority of the time. looks like its time to buy the epson 6500u. thanks for all the response!
