Hapy Holidays all. I've been browsing around here for months digesting different ideas and have reached a point where I need to finalize the home plans for the architect - building extension after winter is over (I live in Montreal so it's too cold!) I will have a dedicated room approximately 16 X 23. I am set on front projection with 100-120" screen - need advice here. I currently have a Sony HTIB which will be moving into the den once the new HT is done. I have no clue what to get in terms of audio! I would like a 7.1 setup although I am not sure I will tell the difference. I'm not looking to go top of the line on everything - something mid-range which will deliver good quality for good price. I also need help on the projector and screen? Any ideas? In terms of budget, I also am flexible. I am looking for advice and what can deliver a good quality. I am not sophisticated enough to detect minute distortions in sound or image although I would prefer minimizing any such things! Please help! Be honest. Now is the time to spend someone else's cash!
