    Hello everyone, I'm new here. I believe that I am one of the youngest home theater fanatics out there. I'm only 13!
    Anyways, I thought it would be fun if we all discussed our dream home theater.
    Someone buys you the perfect house for a great home theater. You have an infinite amount of money to spend on your home theater. What all would you buy?

    A toilet. I'd put a toilet in my home theater.

    No home theater toilet is complete without tactile transducers.

    I think you guys misunderstood the idea. I mean everything, such as componnents and your equipment to watch your movies. And whatever you want in the room as well.
     
  5. Infinate amount of money? who cares about a movie system. I'll just move from set to set!

    I'm not even aware of what the "high-end" theater equipment would even be, But I'll take a crack at it, If it's not really that good, i could always spend more money later (I do have an infinate amount anyway)...

    A DLP, a 35mm, and a 70mm projectors

    Dolby Digital and DTS decoding systems. Whatever they have at Mann's Chinese Theater should be sufficient

    One seat, a Corbin '49 mercury loveseat

    Multiple Krell LAT-1's for speakers

    series of Krell Master-series amps to run them

    Bass would be provided by a series of SVS CS16-46's, one for each speaker

    A popcorn machine

    I could live with owning Widescreen Review Magazine's Holosonic Lab and not be too unhappy. Theta separates, Dunlavy SC-V's with matching subs, three different-sized Stewart screens, stacked projectors, etc. Unreal! I wouldn't kick that system out of my house.

    I hear that Jan! [​IMG]
    Someday, hopefully in the next two years, I will be building a dedicated Home Theatre (14 X 22) and will have a High Def Projector (D-ILA or DLP probably-CRT's are just too big!) with a minimum of a 100 inch screen.
    Will need to upgrade Amplification with seperates (undecided as to which brand) possibly new speakers (but I love my Monitor Audio Silvers) and another HSU VTF-2 Subwoofer.
    This is a "dream" Home Theatre that I hope to make a reality! [​IMG]

    We're talking about home theater! Thank you so much, Alan!

    Projector? If CRT, a Runco DTV-1200. If DLP, I'd be quite cool with a Sharp 9000.

    Amplification: Krell all around.

    Source components: If price is no object, then I'd be cool with the overpriced Ayres all-out player. And I'd still get a separate SACD machine, and a separate DVD-Audio machine.

    I'd get a Rega Planar turntable and install whatever is considered the best arm still being made, as well as the best moving-coil cartridge.

    As for speakers, Martin-Logan, baby! Nothing like a really good electrostatic/dynamic hybrid. Though I wouldn't quarrel with the Dunlavy units making life so sweet for the WSR crew down in Temecula.
