Hey guys,
I have a room that is approximately 10feet by 20feet and 8feet high. I want to setup a home theater/game room in there.

So far, for the equipment i'm thinking about getting the Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350, blu-ray player and an xbox 360.
I have not decided on a sound system as yet since i am not sure about what receiver i should use. What do you guys think is a good setup ?

I was also thinking about the acoustics. I know a 1:2 ratio is not very good for that. I was thinking that i should shorten to room a bit. Can you guys help me out and maybe give me some advice ?


Thanks!

From a video aspect, I would not shorten the room. If you do, it will be hard to get 2 rows of seats(if you want that).


As far as audio, I never heard that a 2:1 ratio is bad. Someone else here should know.

Thanks Jim Mcc.. I was also thinking to shorten the room by about 3 feet to accommodate the receiver and blu-ray player etc in another small room in front or the back of the room.


I was thinking about going with an onkyo receiver with klipsch surround sound speakers. I have not decided on the sub-woofer as yet.

I was thinking about getting either of those receivers. Are those receivers good options? or can i get a better receiver in that price range. I want good surround sound speakers since i do not want to have the reason to upgrade anytime soon. Do you guys have any suggestions? I don't mind criticism at all.
