Well, it has begun. Full construction of what I hope will become the ultimate home theater for people on a really tight budget.
No, I don't have pics yet. Those will be taken tonight and the uploading shall begin.
My wife and I bought our first house in October 2006. Pretty good sized for a starter home, but the highlight is the full, unfinished basement. 2 car garage, and enough space to create a pretty good sized media room with a laundry room and office attached.
Now, at the time we got the house, I worked at Best Buy (yes, I know people hate 'em, but I'll give my store some major credit...we didn't hire complete idiots...many of the guys I worked with actually knew their stuff!). Well, thanks to my "generous" earnings from there, I was able to invest in a few items that I would put into the theater.
Harmon Kardon AVR 247
The Klipsch Synergy Quintet III Satellite and Center Channel
The Klipsch Sub 10
and the JBL Stadium Towers for the fronts (havn't ordered yet...coming soon!)
Framing is still going on. We've gotten some walls up, but we're having to consult an electrician to help run some the electrical, since my dad and I aren't sure if its worth spending 2 wks getting it done ourselves, when we could have all cables, wires, etc. done within a day.
I'll get some work-in-progress shots put in tonight or tomorrow. But I would like some suggestions:
Sectional or individual seating? Bear in mind, we don't have a TON of space, so we need to maximize our seating.
Sites to visit for room decor and design. I've not done my homework, so I'm not sure what a good site for home theater design is.
Last but not least...should I go with an LED rear projo from Samsung, or should I pray that flat panels drop in price to the point where my poor little budget can handle it? I'm looking at this:
Samsung 56" LED DLP
I'll keep the blog updated as construction continues, but its gonna be slow with me in school until God knows when. read
