Looking for recommendations for components, speakers, projector, screen or just anything in general. Will be 5-6 months from now before I start purchasing.
Use for room.
Movies (3d and 2d)
Watching record TV shows
Games (but nothing special done for gaming really... primary purpose is movie)
Will not be used for listening to CD/Records/radio etc...
Room is 15'x18'
Screen will be on the 15' wall and entry is in middle of other 15' wall
Components will be placed on back wall
Prime seat will be room center roughly 10'-12' from screen haven't figured out exact location yet
No ceiling fan
My plan is to have acoustically transparent screen and projector mounted on the ceiling.
As far as ratio/size I haven't really figured that out yet. I am guessing somewhere in 100-120" range and probably 16:9
7.1 surround sound setup.
Floor standing or wall mounted speakers placed behind the screen
F/C/R speakers will all be same type speaker (Not using a "center channel speaker")
Surround speakers all same type wall mounted at aprox 6' height
Components that will be connected
PS3 for video playback and media server
Cable box for TV
Possible other gaming system
I want to use a Separate amplifier from AVR to drive speakers.
My initial rough idea of budget (this number could go up or down but looking for the best bang for the buck while maintaining longevity of system) $20k I figure roughly 9k for speakers 3k for projector and screen 3k for components 5k for room treatments
If I can get a good set of speakers for 6k that I wont really be able to tell the difference between it and set for 9k I have no objection to saving that 3k. I want good quality speakers that wont fail and that do a good job but to be honest I don't have the best hearing so I am not going to be able to tell the difference between most high end speakers.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
