I have a 11 by 14 foot room that I have decided to make into a dedicated theater room. I have realized that a lot of considerations have to be made and I was hoping that some of you guys could help me out. My first problem is wether I should get a 57" Toshiba projection(57H83) or a 51" Toshiba. My first row of seats will be about 11 feet from the T.V and I dont want to go too small but at the same time I dont want to get too big. I will be hooking it up with high defintion and I heard that since it is a better image it is ok to be close to the set, is that true? The last thing I want to do is have to return the thing because It wasnt the right size. As for audio im looking at the athena point 5 surround sound system, carver subwooker, yamaha reciever, Im hoping that this will be enough sound for the room. As you can see, im on a budget, trying to stay around 3000 for the entire set up. Anyone with any comments please feel free to post them, I could really use the help. Oh yea, If anyone knows any inexpensive ways to soundproof the room please let me know. Thanks ahead of time for any replies.
