    Hello all:
    I am new to the forum, I need some(a lot of) help in deciding on a home theatre system.

    We are building a house which has a media room of
    21 f Long
    12 f Wide
    10 f height.

    My questions are:
    1. Should I use a projection system? What is good for $2000
    2. Should it be 5.1? Is 7.1 an overkill?
    3. Which receiver/speaker package should I go with if my budget is $4000

    Thank you
    SKV

    Go shopping and see what you like.

    I don't mean to say that in a dismissive way, just that our opinions may not necessarily be yours. You should try to formulate some opinions for yourself before hearing the multitude of (often conflicting) opinions here.

    Definatly go listening/viewing, that said I would go for projector if I were to design a room specifically for home theater and such, especially if the lighting was right.

    about the 5.1, you could always start there and make sure you receiver handles 7.1 then try the 7.1 out if you like it stick with it if not then stay with 5.1. that will be up to you though nothing anyone can tell you what to do there.

    good luck
