Hi! I'd like some feedback on this potential home theater system for my basement. I'll be building the basement in December, putting the wiring and ceiling-recessed screen in at that time. After some internet research, reading, and a trip to the local audio store, here's what I'm considering for the system. Feedback and suggestions appreciated, as this is my first home theater/surround sound anything! 1. BenQ PE7700 DLP Projector ($2500) I can make it dark down in this basement, so the 1100 lumens should be okay, right? Mounted on ceiling 2. Da-Lite Model C screen ($320) 16:9 (58" x 104", 119" diag) high contrast matte white ceiling recessed I think the gain is 1.1 3. Yamaha RX-V1600 receiver ($1100) Should give me digital from DVD player to projecter, via HDMI cables. Also break out audio and send it to the speakers. 4. DVD player: Toshiba SD-5980 ($140) Just a simple DVD player should be fine, right? 5. Front three speakers: Triad bronze in-ceiling 8 ($700 each) 6. Back and side speakers: Omni round 6 ($250 each) mounted in ceiling, of course 7. Subwoofer: Skilsch subwoofer RW-12 ($600) Mounted in a window-seat under the basement window that exists directly behind the screen. I'll put some sort of grille on the front of the window-seat, and the speaker will sit behind it. Total price: About $7500 The wiring all goes to a point on the right side, up high. There will be two binding post panels (each holding 4 pairs of posts) there. The receiver, DVD player, and cable box all sit on the shelf on this right-hand side. The room is about 19 feet from the screen to the back. It's about 16 feet wide. The ceiling is 7 feet high. The floor will be a low carpet, the walls painted sheetrock, the ceiling painted sheetrock. There will be a desk under the receiver shelf, where a computer (and maybe a PS2 or XBOX or something) will sit. I'd like to hook these things up to the home theater, with a wireless keyboard and mouse, so I can sit on the couch and enjoy the big screen. The reason for the expensive receiver is that I don't want my digital video signal to drop to analog at any point. What are some other receiver options? The less expensive I can make this system, the sooner I'll be able to enjoy it. I'm doing a buy-as-I-earn thing, so it will take a year or two to get completed. For example, I don't know if I'll even get around to buying the rear surround speakers. Which components are wisest to purchase first? I'm thinking the speakers will hold their value longest, so I should buy them first. A receiver would be next, probably. The last thing to buy will probably be the projector, as it will drop the most in price, right? The DVD player can be purchased any time, I suspect, as it's cheap. What are some other in-ceiling speakers that might be cheaper, yet sound good? Again, whatever anyone would like to comment on, please do! Thanks!
