I have Klipsch Ultra 2 speakers and NAD T175 sitting around in their boxes. Impatiently awaiting for a Sunfire TGA7200 amplifier.

Cabling has arrived. Middle Atlantic rack is on order. Awaiting left and right stands from Sound Anchors. The center channel stand has arrived.

I have started talking with Mark Seaton for something special for 1 or 2 subs.

I shall hopefully post here once everything is put together unless it is serious thread necromancy. I am hoping everything comes together in time for a trip Mark is making to NJ mid April.

I could post pics, but it would just be of my room itself with a lowly 62" Mitsu DLP set...

Ok, here's my current setup, a few pictures below.

Tv: 58" Pioneer RPTV (1080i, CRT) - Still wonderful picture quality!
Receiver: Yamaha RXV-1400
Speakers: 7 Ascend Acoustics, Center is CMT340, Front is 170s, rear and surrounds are HTM200s.
Subwoofer: HSU Research VTF3-MK2
Signal Sources are currently PS3 for Blu-Ray and Toshiba A3 for HDDVD.
Media Collection: Approx 600 dvd's, 90+ HDM discs (with a few more Blu-Ray's than HDDVDs)

Future upgrade plans are (probably late 2008 or early 2009):
1080P Front projector, screen probably around 110-120"
HDMI capable 7.1 Receiver (alternatively get a player that has 7.1 analog out and decodes all formats...)







PS: Seriously need to do something about the look and feel of the room, so paintjob, acoustic treatments, better lighting is in the works. Next room over is my gaming room, currently only occupying a Air-Hockey table, but future plans is to finish building my Arcade Cabinet..

Don't get rid of your set tomes! Nothing wrong with a well-calibrated CRT set. As film-like as it gets (except for film of course).

For you guys feeling inadequate, just remember size by itself doesn't matter. Good viewing is a function between screen size AND viewing distance. When the lights are down and I'm sitting in my video rocker in front of my 42" set watching an HD DVD, I forget I'm watching video and think I'm in a theater watching projected film.

I've been all excited lately since I'm going to buy a 60" Pioneer Kuro plasma to replace my CRT and then you have to go and post stuff like this. Do you live on a giant ranch or something? I have no room in my house for something like that (Well, I do... but I'm not going to turn my living room into an isolated HT like yours). I'll have to wait until I get sick of living in the city, move out to the 'burbs, and then I can work on having a REAL home theatre like that. Until then, I'll continue hating you.

I'd like to post a picture of my current "HT" setup but it would be too embarrassing to post in this thread (just my XBR5 and a few boxes, no receiver or speakers), so I'll just post what my main set-up will look like later this year:

-60" Pioneer Kuro plasma (wall-mounted)
-one of the new 2008 Pioneer Elite receivers (haven't decided which one yet)
-BD30K
-XA2
-Wii
-one of the middle-of-the-line Klipsch speaker systems (the name escapes me at the moment)
-2 Dania black leather couches
-1 Dania black leather recliner
-large glass and chrome coffee table (hand-me-down, thanks mom )

The only downside to this is the room has floor-to-ceiling corner windows, and even with the blinds totally shut, light seeps through, so it looks like night-time will be the only good time for watching.

GLOW, don't be embarrassed. We didn't post this to make you hate Me and farout are old farts (well, he is) and took us years to build up to what we have. It does help that prices per square foot in Texas is cheaper than just about anywhere in the nation.


As for your light problem in your viewing room, I found some opaque roll down blinds for the windows in my HT room. HomeDepot sells them in their mini-blind department. I had to special order them for the size and color but hey do totally block the light. You can se them in the pic to the left of the speaker in dark red.

Thanks, Stew. I'll check those blinds out. I just figured you front pj guys had your HT's in your basements, but I guess was wrong- you CAN have a good HT on your first floor, you just need to be smart about outside light.

In my earlier post, I wrote I had blinds when I meant to say shutters, so those blinds should definitely help. I just need to figure out a way to convince my fiancee that they look better than the shutters... oh yeah, and also that floor standing speakers look better and are less intrusive than omnipolar speakers Oh man, It's gonna be a bumpy ride this year....
