We all define "cinema" differently. Sounds like you have bought an evolution of components for your ears over the years so may I suggest something a bit larger for your eyes?


We tried to have a home "at the cinema" experience with televisions but gave up when a 60in HDTV proved to still just be watching television with external speakers but when we finally used a projector and a separate screen we realized that "cinema" had arrived in our home. The manufacturers like to call their audio components "home cinema systems" when all they "stroke" are our ears



If you have the space I suggest you try to create something with a projector. A TV is like a small gray dog in the room while a projector is like a gray elephant!

Best of Luck

It is a nice system, but it's one of those terms that can rub people the wrong way. Your implication is that you've got a home cinema. While true you do have a lot more than most off-the-shelf buyers have, it is still a long way from what many would consider a 'cinema'. If I went to my local cinema and was presented with a 46" screen, I would ask for my money back, no matter how good the rest of it sounded.


Now, that said, your television setup includes a solid mid-level product, which is good, and the audio setup includes some nice components.


You are up to three separate Blu-ray players, so I wouldn't be looking for another one unless you are thinking of going to a media server like a HDI Dune for sure. Nothing wrong with Panasonic, or the PS3.


I'm not familiar with the speakers, but they do look very nice, and if you are happy with the sound, then that's what's really important.


If it is your home, then I would recommend drilling some holes and getting the wiring inside the walls if you can. Long term, that's a really nice and clean thing to have.


But, the projector is one of those distinguishing features that changes your nice TV setup into a home cinema for a lot of people who would be looking.


I installed two 70" TVs this weekend, a 60" TV this weekend... My customer doesn't call any of those spaces a cinema - they reserve that term for their 110" projection/surround setup in the basement. I like to think the term means a lot more than 'tv', but it doesn't take away from your setup by calling it that.
