    I borrowed a digital camera from work, and decided to snap a few, quick pic's to show you guys. Forgive the crude web page, and the crappy pic's....I gotta work with the tools at hand. :)
    I will be doing a "proper" web page when time permits, with proper formatting, decent pics, etc. But for now, this 5 minute job will have to do.
    I will try and add a list of my gear at a later time. Please let me know what you think!

    Hi guys....
    Clark: You have very perceptive eyes. That is indeed a can of Labatts Blue. It isn't my fave beer, but when my wife is buying, I'm not mindin'
    Aurel: My equipment as it sits right now...
    Yamaha HTR-5270 Receiver
    Sony DVP-S570D DVD Player
    RCA Directv Receiver
    Yamaha CDC-905 CD Carousel
    Kenwood Integrated Amp (for Sonosub)
    Sony SLV-998HF Hifi VCR
    Technics SLP-555 Cassette Deck
    ** Sony KP-53HS10 RPTV * ....my baby!
    Polk RT-600i Mains
    Polk RT-35i Rears
    Omage OMC100 Center
    Paradigm PS-1000 Sub
    DIY Sonosub 12" DVC Driver (killer!)
    Troy: I looked long and hard for a nice rack for my DVD's. The one shown in my pictures comes from Ikea. It holds roughly 160 DVD's. I have almost outgrown the one I have, and will be picking another up shortly. Here is the link to it:

    Hi Stacey,
    We haven't really talked since the last local HTF meet held here in Calgary, but dang, I think the next meet should be held at your place. It looks like quite the clean yet elegant layout. Congratulations on your room!
    Hopefully I'll get into a new house sometime in the next couple of years, and then I'll get my chance to do justice to a truly dedicated home theater room. Using my living room just doesn't sit that well with me when I see pics like yours.
    Enjoy it and if you ever want to hold a meet at your place, I'ld be happy to attend. TTYL...

    Very nice Stacey. Love the clean setup also. Thanks for the tip on the cabinet. I think I'll have my brother pick one up for me at IKEA, since he lives in NJ and there are no IKEAs in Florida.

    Dale....
    I would be happy to host a Calgary HT meet at my place. I can't narrow down a specific date, but sometime in the next month or so would be fine. I am looking at getting a pro-style amp for my sonosub, and would prefer to wait until after I have picked one up.
    I guess we can consider this the start of another HT meet. I will post something in the Local HT meet area this weekend. We'll see if there is any interest.
    Regards,
    Stacey

    Hi Neil....
    How's my DIY sub? In one word, AWESOME. This was the best money (minimal) that I think I've spent on my home theater. It easily eclipses my Paradigm PS-1000, which you'll notice in my pics as well. I presently have it powered by an old Kenwood Integrated Amp. I am seriously thinking of replacing the Kenwood soon, probably with a pro-series amplifier.
    Some people have asked if it is a dedicated movie room. The short answer is yes. I built it in my basement with only one thing in mind...watching movies!!
    Regards,
    Stacey

    What is the size of the room? If your DIY sub sounds better, then why don't you use it in the front of the room? We are building a house and am trying to get some ideas of layout. Thanks, and nice job.

    Excellent job Stacey! I like it when rooms don't look too "busy". You seem to have just the right mix of furnishings in your room. [​IMG]

    Hi Stacy. Love your room layout. I'm building a bungalow and was planning a "my room" aka home theater room downstairs in the basement.
    What are your room dimensions and ceiling height and what do you do with respect to seating if you have friends/family over who want to watch?
    FYI for everyone, I currently have:
    Pioneer Elite vsx-26tx reciever
    B&W DM602 fronts and LCR6 centre
    Boston Acoustic PV800 sub and CR6 bookshelf speakers as surround.
    Not as fancy as some of y'all but its what I can afford. My current room in my old house is shaped like a big "L" and not acoustically as good as I would like. In the new house, I would like to build the room right.
    Thanx, Allan

    Regarding that IKEA rack: I have four of them mounted on a wall at home. I spaced them (the doors) about 1.5 inches apart and it makes for a really nice effect.

    Unquote...
    The room dimensions are as follows:
    Length - 23 feet, TV at one end, rears at the other
    Width - 15 feet at it's narrowest (TV side). The room has a small 2 foot "ell" at one end due to framing constraints. The "ell" side is roughly 17 feet wide. I have double french doors at the entrance on this side. I don't think my pictures show this though.
    My room will comfortably sit 5 people. I have 2 La-Z-Boy recliners, and a La-Z-Boy couch as well. This equates to 4 people reclining in comfort, while one poor bugger has to sit in the middle of the couch upright...this is never me by the way... [​IMG]

    Forgot this in my post above...
    Kelly, if you have 5 of these babies, how have you aligned the door openings? When I add my second one, I want it to be the opposite of my first one. I'm just curious how you did yours.
    Thanks,
    Stacey
