    Time sure flies when you're having fun. It's been almost a year since I updated my web site, including my HT site. During that time I'm made a whole bunch of additions to the HT and these are now reflected in a greatly expanded edition.

    All the old information is still there, but I've updated all the links and have added information on new items, including a new section on the installation of my Dish Network and HDTV.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    I like the new format; your site is truly inspiring. The only thing that I did notice amiss is the thumbnail to the sub/poster frame, it doesn't match the picture it’s linked to.
    Now where am I going to get the coin for one of those projectors... [​IMG]

    Awesome RAF. [​IMG] Cool new signs, the trio of Marantz MA700 monoblocks, HDTV Dish, and the reputable rp-91 dvd player. And let's not forget that your home theater was featured in the Wall Street Journal. A good year indeed for you. [​IMG]
    As always, thanks for sharing.

    Great job, RAF.

    I'll spend some time there in the near future, now I'm planning my own HT!

    I have to admit, I LOVE looking at your site. Everytime I need to show someone what I want to do in my basement, I direct them to look at your HT (Of course I have it bookmarked)
    I'm hoping that I can scrape together the extra $$ and grab me one of those Sony projectors. I initally was going to get a RPTV, but it wasn't hard to change my mind
    I know that my HT will NEVER look like that, but hey, I can still dream [​IMG]

    I love that picture of your three grandchildren in their little director's chairs, their attention absolutely fixed on the movie. Great stuff. Some day.

    Very nice Mr. Fowkes.

    Yours was actually one of the first home theaters that I had ever seen, since then I've been striving to build one that good!

    BTW,

    Where did you get them signs?

    I have a couple of frames like that, and if I found a place where I can download/print some copies of them, I would be very happy!

    Excellent site. I've used some of your ideas as inspiration for my HT currently underway.
    Wonder if my wife would freak if I said we need to build a new house just for a great HT environment [​IMG]

    RAF, can you send me your VW10HT when you are ready to make the next upgrade?

    Thanks

    Absolutely great. Looking at the large disc collection makes me wonder how its organized? Alpha? Genre? Dewey Decimal? [​IMG]

    Well, I just went to RAF's HT site for about the 10th time and re-read parts of it. RAF, as always, your HT is a benchmark for the rest of us HT fans!

    Thanks for the kind words, Scott. I've added a whole new section showing how I installed my Dish satellite system outdoors.

    Look for more "surprises" over the next few months.
