Good job - really enjoyed reading the thread
Thanks! glad you like the set up.
Got a poster today, i need to get a Dark Knight poster for the white wall opposite to balance it out. Well a least that's what i'm telling myself to justifiy getting another poster. haha
So managed to find a Dark Knight Poster i liked
much better than a plain white wall and balances it all out
I couldnt resist getting these to keep me going for movie marathons hahahaha
Very good transformation mate! top notch gear aswell.
I take it your from over here in the uk? i see ASDA sweets there lol
Looks brilliant! Congrats mate, great setup. Love the confectionary scoop!
Cant believe the sweets are nearly all done! think i need to stop looking at the pick n mix and start watching the screen. hahaha
Just get a vendor that require coins
that wouldnt be a good idea for me cause id have even less money due to spending on sweets as well as AV equipment. and i dont want to be running down the shops at 1am to get change so i can get my sweets out of the machine.
I got a new black rug to cancel out any reflection from the projector on the laminated floor. This was a bad move cause i then got the bug to do more work, so ended up thinking that the white from the projector screen was distracting which it was, but not that bad just an excuse so boxed it in and it actually looks better and not as distracting as before.
frame going up
All done screen up
seems to frame the screen real well
Looks good, esp for a bedroom setup, what did you use to mount the screen?
So been a while since last up date
I decided to build a frame around sub and my av rack.
Mate, seriously WHAT A TRANSFORMATION, The equipment and room looks mint, i bet you are well chuffed.
Only thing id mention is frame those posters. Other than that top work
Thanks. Got some frames coming for xmas but might end up making some frames out of the left over wood. I maybe getting some other upgrades soon.
Hope you all had a good xmas and new year.
I was a good boy this year so Santa brought me some upgrades
My beacon remote has been replaced by this Harmony 1000
Ps3 did a good job upto now for blu ray but now upgraded to this.
Benq projector 800x600 and 84" electric screen sold just before xmas. but not to worry upgraded to 1080p HD Optoma projector
Using a bigger 92" fixed frame screen i made myself hung from the ceiling hooks for electric screen. looks great i love it. I wasnt sure how much better 1080p would be over my Benq. But boy its like going from VHS to DVD quality. What was meant to be a 5 minute test of Avengers Assemble to show my girlfriend ended up with us watching the whole film. hahah
This is how my room looks now, sorry iphone pics
That is a really great setup you have there. It's made me want to do the eldest boys bedroom now as it is a similar size to yours. Just got to get him to move out now.
Thanks! im enjoying this as my own little slice of cinema. wait til he goes out and change the locks
This is great - the gradual change from meh that's OK to wow that's awesome
Thanks. Im enjoying the build.
Wrapped the wood frame of my screen today in black velvet.
Had a bit of xmas money left and got this. finally got a use for all my digital copies
Quick Apple Tv shot by iphone
so now this year is underway i found myself looking around my room, thinking what i can improve in my room with out a lot of cost to myself. this lead me to look at my projector ceiling bracket i got for xmas and then my nice new projector sitting on its shelf. a few hours later measuring and fitting it all. (swearing a number of times)
Ceiling is now up
I took the shelf down and trunking leaving a little mess so got out the paint
I must say im happy with it in the new position. also covered the front of my homemade cabinet in velvet also the projector bracket as well.
Your setup is coming along well also, the jump from a 720 native to the 1080 brings a whole new world to movies, I remember first fire up of my w5000 was christened with tron legacy, the projector still impresses me to this day, well till I end up viewing a 4k one to compare old tech with new lol
Well enjoyed reading this thread great transformation !
All u need to do Is sit back & enjoy
Thanks! its slowly getting there.
Thanks im glad you like. Monday nights are now movie nights for me
Awesome setup man. Really loved the transformation. And you made a great choice with the apple tv!
Thanks man! the apple tv is great makes me a bit lazy though cause i dont have to get up to put films, into blu ray player now ahahaha
