    Hello,
    I'm french and I want to present my home theater. I've build it during 2 years.
    I've received the extension of the house at this point :

    After realizing all the works by myself (isolation, electricity, plaster, paint...), I've obtained this room :
    [​IMG]

    The screen is an acoustically transparent screen realized with a canvas very knowed in France on forums. It has 4 m width (160") in 2.35 format. The 3 front speakers and the subwoofer are behind it :

    All the electronics are in a technical room separated from the projection room :
    [​IMG]
    There is a sas between the projection room and the rest of the floor stage :

    Electronics :
    Speakers Wharfedale Diamond 8 (8.4, 8.1 et 8.C)
    Speakers Wharfedale WH-2
    Subwoofer Audience CGA 25
    Receiver Denon 1803
    DVD player Pioneer DV-575-AS
    TNT Decoder CGV Etimo 2T
    VHS player Panasonic NV-HD630
    Multimedia player WDTV
    Projector Epson TW6000
    Remote Harmony 555
    You can follow all the adventure of the construction of this home theater in this topic (in french).
    Enjoy,
    Rodolphe

    Très bien ! La forme de la pièce est unique, du moins ici.
    And, welcome to the forum!

    The room is officially finished !
    I've made a video who presents the evolution of the room from the beginning.
    And now the last pictures :

    The video presents the evolution of the fourth parts of the room (front, rear, technical local and sas) during 28 months from february 2010 to june 2012.
    The link to the video (50 Mb).
    Now the evolutions of the room will be restricted to the purchase of a server, an ethernet switch internet, a ps3 maybe, a screen of control in the technical local, a fridge in the sas... I will do that in time... ;)

    Amazing, looks like a barn shape theater. I esp love the library style DVD catalogue.

    That was a big reflection for the dvd library...
    They are under 2 slopes of the roof, so I need to realize different heights :

    Very nice! I like the skylights with the window coverings. A lot of natural light when you want it, but it can be controlled. I love the amount of DVD storage. Looking at your picture of the racks in post 4, are they on castors or wheels so you can roll them out to look through them?

    Absolutely, each rack has 6 castors under the first board and a handle (not installed at the moment of these pictures) to roll them. ;) You can see them under the first rack on the first picture. ;)

    Your theater looks amazing. I love the woodwork and stonework in the back. The lighting is amazing also.

    That is one of the nicest looking HTs I've ever seen posted on this forum (at least to my own personal aesthetics). I would kill to have access to something like that in my own home.

    Congratulations, Rodolphe!

    Thanks a lot. Lot of work to realize this HT but it makes great effect when someone comes in the room for the first time... ;)

    Watch a movie without seeing the speakers is very appreciable.
    It requires acoustically transparent screen (like those of Seymourav for instance in USA). Popcorn maker is the kitchen microwave... ;)
    There is soon an expresso coffee machine in the room and maybe later a fridge in the sas for cold drinks and ice creams.

    Beautiful work. That is a splendid Home Theater setting. The stone, and wood aspects combined with the unusual shape of the room create a very unique environment. Thanks for sharing.
