I have been around this forum for a short time, but have had the HT bug for as long as I can remember. Over the past few months I have completed my "entry level" HT set up in our bonus room(not yet dedicate exclusively to HT). If I had a Web site/dig. camera, I would show you, but those are not priorities right now. This is the equipment that I have: Newcastle 956 receiver ( 6.1,120 watts/per) JVC 45 DVD (not progressive) JVC vcr Panny 32" 4:3 tv Epson 710e projector cheep pull down screen Older speakers that I am very happy with (no sub yet, but will be building a DIY soon) I built an in-wall e-center for the equipment and TV, and a 'valance' to house the pull-down screen which can accomodate a 96" screen, but I have started out with a generic pull down that is 60" wide that you can pick up at many office supply stores. I am using the Epson only on special occasions when we really want the full movie experience (2-3 times a week). I am using a 30 foot S-video cable to run to the projector, which sits on the coffee table when in use(The fan is a bit loud sitting there). I may build a ceiling mount for it, but positioning is difficult because a ceiling fan is right where it would need to be with a 60" screen. Okay, on with the question. . .Am I starting out in the right direction, or am I just kidding myself? How can I get the most out of what I have put together. Affordability, ease of use, and top performance with what I have are my goals. Any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!!! Thanks . . . .
