I just wanted to thank everyone here, who provided feedback and suggestions while I was trying to decide which Projector to go with, how far back to mount it, etc etc etc.


Thursday the Projector arrived, mounted and tested for DirectTV HD installation Friday morning. The picture is UNBeliveable, even on a Flat White Painted wall.


We have some tweeking to do, with positioning of things, running cable channels etc...but we are FINISHED with all the big things!


Thanks again to everyone ! ! ! !


I would estimate my savings just from reading this Forum (all areas) to be well over $5000.00, when total spent including Furnature was about $8,000.


So that is about a 40% savings or so! *wow*


Projector purchased from Projector People *VERY HAPPY* with the experience.

Cables purchased from MonoPrice *VERY HAPPY* with the Price savings and quality.

Projector Mount from Mount Direct *Big Savings on a Mount, however, I might replace this with one a bit more stable, it hangs down 14" (which we need) but every time you touch the PJ (powering totally off) it can get a wee bit outta wack, which really shows on a screen 14 foot away)

Reciever from Circuit City *eh..its a big box store*

Speakers, Wii and PS3 from Best Buy *eh, its a big box store*


Thanks again!

Yea I can turn it off at the remote, but trying to be 'Green' we try to power off everything we can when not in use, vice leaving things in standby, or leaving electric 'Vampyres' laying around. Basically the only thing that still has power on to it down stairs, is the Satellite Dish Receiver, everything else gets totally powered off, via a surge strip. Except the PJ which I like (if I can) to 'flip' the I/O switch

the button on the remote and the button on the projector should do the same thing. You need to unplug the electricity

What kind of speakers from BB? I bought 6 of their Insignia brand (6 1/2 inch) speakers a while back when they were on sale for $35 a pair. They are amzing for the price. They are so much better than tiny cube speakers.

Ok, I took these late last night. But it gives you an idea, of a room on a Budget. 'Nearly completed'


Just a shade under $5000.00

All A/V equipment, including Cables, an additional 100 feet of 12-2 electrical for 2 dedicated circuits, wood, paint, and carpet for the riser.


Fat heads and furnature an additional $3000.


Keep in mind, this was a total empty, however finished, basement, and I owned none of the gear previous, so it's 'From Scratch'


Equipment as follows


PLV Z2000 LCD Projector (1080P, Blu Ray compatible)

Klipsch Synergy Speakers C2 (center) (1)

B2 (front and back left and right) (4)

S2 (middle left and right) (2)

Klipsch 12" SubWoofer Sub-12

Onkyo TX-SR606 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver

PS3 Blu-Ray (oh and it plays games too? *grin*)

Wii

I'm almost positive this is an urban myth. I'm more than willing to be proven wrong but it doesn't take much to turn on most items and it certainly has to be less than leaving them in standby for hours upon hours on end.
