Hey someone who is my age!!! I think I am pretty lucky to have all this stuff. Most of the stuff was from some very generous people I kno. I bought alot of it but I worked for the money and I think I spent my money good. The only thing I was I hadn't of bought was the speakers. See I bought these bout a yr ago when I rly didn't have much knowledge of HT and now I have seen so many better speakers out there and I wish I would have gotten something better. But o well it sounds great and thats all that matters.

I paid for everything in my HT out of my own pocket. If you add everything up, I've spent more than $6,000. You probably think that is crazy, but I am currently attending college and manging my own computer business.

I just made a quick equipment list on my web site.

When I was 16, home theatre was hooking up your mono VCR to your stereo receiver, popping in a tape and enduring all that hiss.

Setup looks good. One thing though, the pics take up a large amount of webspace for their size.

I'm 20 and in the last year I've spent about 2 grand on our family theater audio/home theater accesories (remote, dvd player, etc etc.) The only thing I didn't buy was the projector, I was going to buy a tv, but my dear old mom decided that maybe we should get a widescreen to go with all the speakers I bought, then I stumbled upon the idea of a projector. I'm glad I went with a projector instead of a big tv. Man...when I got into this about a year ago I never thought I would have the knowlegde/setup I have now...its a pretty nice feeling being able to watch some of my favorite movies closer to how they were meant to be scene. I'll be moving out in about a year but its still worth it to me. I've had a lot of fun painting, tweaking, fabricating, organizing, buying, researching, discussing all this stuff. Now I can just enjoy it. I honestly can't wait until I'm older with my own house with the perfect room, more money, more artistic freedom unless I end up with one of these wives I hear about on here all the time.

The only thing I am wondering if I will regret spending all this money when I'm poor, on my own, scrapping through film school/workshops. Oh well. Some of my knowlegde about all this transfers.

Well, I tested out after my freshman year. I was bored and wasn't learning much. I only wish I would have done something like this sooner. Middle school was extremly boring. The only fun part about middle school was hangin' out with my friends and being in charge of all the computers in the school.

I'm sorry, but all these, I'm 15 and I have a FP setup are killing me. I know you guys are proud of what you have, and heck, we like to see this stuff. But I have to say, that when I was your age, working for money wasn't a "summer pastime", I had to work and help out where I could. What I have now, although its not a FP system, I have had to save up for and because of that, I not only enjoy it immensely, I greatly appreciate it. I'm not going to point the finger here at anyone on this forum, but it seems to me that kids these days have it too easy. They seemingly always get what they want, and don't appreciate it when they get it.


blah! Rant over!

BTW, it is a nice setup, congratulations !
