    I was wondering, can somebody recommend a ht designer that can pick out the best equipment suitable for a room including acoustic treatments and equalize the system?

    The pre/power amplifiers, projector, screen, cabinet, lighting, and seats have already been picked out. Now it's on to speakers and acoustic treatments.

    I would ask you guys, but I've already tried convincing my friend on a set of speakers. However, he believes that a specialist would know better... and he's probably right.

    I've never dealt with a designer before, but I'm guessing that a good designer you may know quite possibly hasn't dealt with a high budget. At most he's willing to spend 30k.

    I don't want any recommendations on speakers, just designers please.

    Edwin,

    30k is _not_ a high budget, but rather average :). High will be much closer oer in excess of 6 digits..

    Check JS audio in Bethesda 301-656-7020, http://www.jsaudio.com/;
    also Soundworks in Kensington, MD 301-929-8600 (ask for Mark Haflich; he is quite active at AVforum);

    Check Bill Lukacs (longtime HTF member, you can find quite a few of his posts here); 703-467-2007;

    Another place would be AVSolutions in Laurel, MD; 301-953-7242 ask for Craig.

    All the best,

    _zjt
