Ok, Let me start by saying that I don't consider what I have a "theater". It is however where I spend many hours enjoying movies. I live in a small apartment because I am saving for a house. I thought I would share what I have done. Current set up: Toshiba 40h80 Monitor Toshiba SD3750 DVD Pioneer VSX-D409 Receiver 5.1 DD & DTS Bic Venturi DV52si Mains and surrounds Bic Venturi DV53CLR Center Sony SA-WM500 Sub 2 Bass Shakers (one in each chair) The speaker stands and DVD rack I made myself for a grand total of around $27. Any comments, questions or suggestions are more than welcome. Here are the pics.
