I need to get a digital camera. I was hoping to make it in before part 3 closed.

I would post my HT setup if it wasn't so un-impressive. I wait with baited breath for more pics though.

I'll be the first then to post my theater pics. Not much has changed since the last thread minus a butload of new DVDs and a little eye candy.

Sanyo PLV-Z1 projecting onto a 110" Stewart StudioTek 130 screen:


Equipment rack and front left speaker topless:


Seating area with rear couch raised 5" for tiered effect:


And of course, the DVD collection (yes both towers are full, time for a new storage idea):

That monster set really does look great up on a shelf. First time I've seen it. Cool set up man. I like the seating.

Wow, I thought I had a lot of DVD's 'till I saw some of your collections. I need a tower like the one in the post above. I don't have a HT, so that sucks.

Finally got my HD setup, so I don't feel ashamed anymore posting pics.

My new Sony 36" HD (KV36HS510) and seating area

The view I get (sort of)

The collection

Two questions:

1. Did you do all the work yourself?

2. How long a process was this?

To the two guys above with projectors, how is the picture quality? I've never seen a game/movie/show running on a projector but in the next year I'm going to be interested in purchasing an HDTV and if a projector is the way to go, that would be nice to have such a large screen!

Plus, according to the Wall Street Journal (by way of Slashdot), Sony has fixed one of the biggest problems with projectors!

Yes, if you have the ambient light control for a room, and the throw distance for it, a front projector is the only way to go. The image is crystal clear (especially if you want to drop a little more bank and pick up a second-gen DLP projector over an LCD). HDTV signals look stunning on it, and games (especially if you're running a component out from the system) are amazing. Watching a movie or playing Mario Kart on a 9.5 foot screen is like nothing else in your home

And for that link to Sony's 'screen fixing problem', there has never been a big issue with it as long as you got a grey screen (like the Stewart FireHawk series). It is an interesting idea to use a black screen though. Forewarning to you, it is easy to spend more on the screen than the actual projector (for instance my screen retails for about $4k, while the projector retails for about $2k). You don't have to spend more on a screen, it's all just personal preference on how good you want that image.

For all projector info, go over to Projector Central for all of your needs.

1.)All the work was done myself with help from my father in law and a friend. Except for carpeting which I paid to have installed

2.) I got the room built, painted and ready to watch in like 3 months of work mainly on weekends and some things in the evening after work.

3.) Yep, that's an infocus X1

Here are two pics of my set-up and collection.

I moved into a new house recently, and since the handyman was here anyway, I had him construct a custom shelf to hold my DVD's and laserdiscs.

The TV is a Toshiba Theaterwide.
