Hi, My name is Don, and I just wanted to introduce myself. I an in the process of building a new home and of course a dedicated home theater. I am still in the planning phases, and have read through most of the FAQ's and some threads that were of intrest. Ill be starting from scratch, and have an idea of the equipment I would like. So here is what I have to work with: 14x18 room, no windows. Probably around 8 foot ceiling height. My HT philosophy is "get something a little better than what I wanted" this way, I wont want something better. (I know, but its worked for me in the past, we will have to see if the same applies to HT) I'll try to refrain from asking specific questions at this point (I have been working the search). With that being said; since I have a blank canvas, does anyone have any comments or advice that would assist in the planning or other things to consider? Thank you in advance. PS: I've read the "things I would have done differently thread"
