I am just about to finalize my HT project. I have been agonizing over many different decisions concerning audio, video, lighting, you name it. Went to the two primary HT vendors in town, (GV) and (PA),as they will be known. Very interesting differences. Room Description: 19' x 12'; med blue with white window trim; flat white drywall ceiling Lighting: started off with two lights w/ 3 spots per light. Changed to Tiella rails with 20w halogens and blue glass shades Audio: my own JBL sub, GV spec with Klipsch rf $1500 ; PA spec Mordaunt Short 906 $1451; was not happy with either one especially after seeing Axioms online which I have chosen in $1800 range w/new sub Video: Front Projection, 45x80 92" screen; both spec Sony vpl hs20 for $3500. However, the screen has become the hardest and overriding factor of the whole project. GV says white Vutec "Vu-Easy" at $940 should be good enough; PA says Stewart Firehawk (silver) $1604 6.1 A/V Receiver: GV Denon avr 1804 $499; PA Harmon Kardon avr 230 $489; Have a Denon 5.1 now and would like to stick with them. Labor: Install will be difficult with the drywall already in place. GV suggests cutting thru drywall toward back of room (me finishing mud and paint) using an infrared device located by the screen. $930; PA suggests same but would like to go sideways and place components at side of room and no IR. $500; I've been reading here where I could do it myself including making a screen. Not a real big deal but I would like to have it done right. Total inc tax: GV $7553; PA $8585 ; I've figured if I buy it all online and install it myself approx. $4800 with the screen still a big question. I'm also installing new carpeting with will be about $1500 - $2000 (whole basement) but can't decide on which color. lighter color or darker?? Everytime I decide on something, along comes either a new wrinkle or a decision on types. My decisions: Projector: (easy) Sonyvplhs20 (please no more wrinkles) Audio: Axiom, just need to decide on correct setup which changes cost A/V Receiver: Denon avr 1804 (or better) Screen: oh my goodness, Stewart, Da-Lite, Vutec, my own design,grey, white, silver. I've read the info on this forum about screen which is great. Especially the one that tested all the different types including paint. Had a decision made until I read this. Comments? Suggestions?
