I thought I did, but I was wrong!

I will have to take up a collection to upgrade so I can advertise as having a true HT again. Any pocket change would be appreciated!

Wonder if I need various bodily fluid stains and chewed gum on the floor to qualify also?!? Posted Image

Wow according to leonml I don't have a HT either.

My room is about 13x13 and so far so good.

That guy is a clown, don't let it bother you.

Besides he never showed pictures of his TRUE HT

Just my 2 cents
Ed O'Neill

p.s. Too bad I didn't live in Colorado like you Frank we could have pooled our money together to make 1 nice theater.LOL

Frank,
You have one hell of a nice setup!!!

The best thing to do with people like leonml is just ignore them, no response to him or to others that bash or agree with him, just ignore.
I never will understand how some people can be so rude.

You have the total package, a very good HDTV, A very good sound setup and a good dimensional room with a very pleasing appearance. I only hope mine turns out as nice as yours when I am done with it!

Thanks for the positive reinforcement! I really wasn't looking for compliments, just sharing! I have to admit I was a wee bit peeved (in the King's English this means Pissed to beat The Band!) I have seen some great Ht's that do not have a front projector, and I've seen some that do and look like Crrrrap. As far as I'm concerned an HT can be the making do with what you have or can afford, or the best gear that money can buy! It's all HT to me!

VERY NICE SETUP!!!

Love the posters!

One thing that I've learned since I've setup my small HT is that everyone has a different opinion about EVERYTHING. If you like it then it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Enjoy what you have. Since I don't have A TON of money to put in a HT I enjoy every cent I get out of mine.

well i guess i have the best of both worlds, whichever worlds that guy was in?¿ i have a 13" and a 130"
go figure

frank, why would you join another forum for HT stuff anyway? guys i wonder if the brainwashing isnt working on him... nice stuff btw.

hmm actually this is top secret info, - leonml works for the HTF - he is trying to scare everyone out of the other forums and make them join here. the goal is to make HTF the only HT site on the web. now ill have to kill you all!

Funny that Geno said that because I was thinking that earlier. I joined the AVS forum awhile ago because I wanted to ask a guy a question but other than that it's HTF all the way. I hate how those other sites are setup.

Any way, that guy was nuts Frank, you have one of my favorite HT's. My definition of ht, is a display (preferably widescreen), a dvd player, and at least 5.1 channels of sound.

And btw Frank, when did you upgrade your mains? What did you do with your old mains? I can't believe you upgraded from those other speakers, I can't see you having better sound then you already had, it was a killer system!

Does leonml have a home theater?
I didn't notice a weblink for one.
To me you shouldn't critize people for what you don't have or can't do!

LaMarcus,
I upgraded all of my speakers about 6 months ago. All of the speakers are now Polk Lsi series. The previous speakers were Polk rt speakers. I sold them to a gentlemen from Denver. I also upgrade from a Polk sub to the Sunfire sub. Although the previous speakers were great, they couldn't hold a candle to the Lsi's!!Posted Image

Glenise,
I have not seen any links to his HT, go figure!

Geno,
I didn't want to join any other forums, I was forced to by a group of crazed BestBuy employees!

While Leon might be rude in his way of coming across I think he is correct. I hate to be that way Frank but viewing a movie at my house on a 32" tv or a friends' 55" widescreen is nothing like going over to either one of my friends who own a 110" Screen and projector. The visual impact completely changes your viewing of the movie at home. It no longer becomes a HOME THEATER. It takes on the feeling of a theater w/o the bad things(cell phones yadda yadda).

Trust me your theater looks great but the addition of a screen and projector makes a dramatic difference.

His point could have been made in a better fashion but I agree with it nonetheless.

Shane,
Although watching a movie on a projection system may in fact be a great thing, but not having a projector does not mean that you do not have a home theater(IMHO). If this were the case then the only people that could honestly say that they have a home theater are those that have a movie (as in film) projector in their house! If you check my site you'll see that I have 3!Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

personally I feel sound is way more important for a theater experience then the (size) screen you view it on. I have seen a ton of personal HT setups with screens and FPs have weak sound setups.

I built my sound setup just the way I wanted it before even buying an HDTV. Without great sound you might as well be watching the movie on a 13 inch tv. Seriously though, take a look at some setups of guys that own expensive FPs and a screen and check out their sound setups. Some of you might be shocked.

The HT room I am currently building will have both an RPTV and FP. I still haven't picked out the FP but IMHO it's a true HT room even if I didn't purchase one.

Thank you Frank for re-enforcing my decision to become a HTF member. That other site leaves much to be desired. As for whats-his-face, some people just can't stand to see others having fun. Just because we're sharing what we're doing doesn't mean we think we have the ultimate home theater. I'm sure mine will be a "work in progress" for quite some time. My HT

I try not to rant but saying your HT is not and HT because you dont have a pj is as arbitrary as saying its not an HT because there is no popcorn machine. All theaters have popcorn machines right? So by his logic your home theater is not a true theater with out one.. guess what all theaters have urnals too but I dont think my wife is going to go for that. Oh well I guess no HT for me.
