This was a bedroom before it
was turned into a home theater. It took us 3 months to finish the work: we took
out the closet, closet doors, and painted the ceiling flat navy blue, the walls
flat burgundy. The carpet was replaced to match the ceiling color.
equipment: NEC HT1000 high definition projector, Panamorph anamorphic
lens, Samsung digital set top box, Bravo D2 DVD player. The 100" screen is made

The new and improved Home
Theater II! I'm so excited about this room. This is where daddy is going to test
his speakers and watch his movies without interruptions (good luck!). Dimensions
are 23' X 13'. The 16:9 screen is 124" diagonal, and viewing distance a good 18'
away. The paint scheme really brings out the room, and everyone had a blast with
the funky carpeting. I did some room treatments with acoustic panels to lessen
reverberations, and I'm thinking about doing the same for the ceiling, just
above the screen.
projector is the Mitsubishi HC3000 with the BrilliantColor DLP chip. Native
resolution is 720p (can't afford the new 1080p machines). I ran all the wires in
the attic, from the projector, through the walls, down to the
outlets. Connections include HDMI, component, S-Video, and
composite. The color is just incredible, with real dark blacks. The DVD
player is the Sony 1080p Bluray BDP-301S, connected via HDMI.
receiver is the old reliable Pioneer VSX-1014 with THX that handled my 4-ohm
MTMs with ease. Speakers are the old Infinity crap, while I straighten up my
garage and finish the RS180/H1212 MTMs and the 10" RSHF subs.
