Hi guys, long time lurker but thought it was about time i showed everyone my little room.
We bought the house in December and have been sorting all the kit out since then.
The room is 3.6 x 3.1m
The kit includes:
BenQ W1070 projector
Onkyo TX NR616
Wharfedale DX1HCP
Sky Box HD
Sony Blu Ray player
Xbox 360
The screen is painted onto the wall with a bezel going around the outside.

I have just spent the day putting black out curtains up which makes the room perfect to watch or play any time of day now.

Thanks for looking at my little cinema

Nice clean finish mate :thumbup:
What size screen do you have?

Thanks ! The screen is 80" did not think to go bigger as it's not a massive room anyway

Your room is roughly the same size as mine which was just going to be an office, but thinking it might become an office / cinema room. Can you post some shots of the projector in action mate?

Im liking the screen mate, the the bezel really sets it off! How do you find the Wharfedale DX1s? Been considering them as they look quite Wife friendly

Will get some screen shots for you today. Have not tried the 3d yet but very impressed with the projector.

To be honest the wife chose them ! For the size of room they are perfect according to the mrs apparently it can be a bit too loud if i have it cranked up but she has her own room for what she wants.
The sub shakes the room quite well too but the only annoying thing i found about it was a blue neon type light in the corner when its turned on so i've just put some black insulation tape to cover it up.

Hope this helps

:smashin: Sounds like we are in the same boat lol. They seem a good compromise, not as good as bookshelfs but are proper speakers so are an improvement over most satellite packages and are fairly easy on the eye.

:smashin: I've been looking at the Optoma HD33 but will consider this one now too.

I'm putting some of the box sets dotted about at the minute until i get some propper memorabilia around the room. I have got a very retro looking Fabian Perez piece in the room at the minute. Currently up to season 6 on the Shield but loving every minute of it even the mrs has started watching it with me and is now hooked.
Screen shot as promised

Have only just got in home though so will take some more later.

Just ordered all new plug sockets and switches for the room in matt black so the white wont stick out in contrast to the rest of the room. Will post up pictures when they have been delivered and fitted !

Finally had the delivery from Homebase today. Went for the matt black finish on the light switch and double sockets around the room
old switch

new switch:

new double socket switch


The only annoying part is that i now realise the walls need repainting black now !
So i think that will be the next job on the list to do.
Also keeping my eye out for various memorabilia and proper cinema seating for in their i especially liked the seats with drinks coolers as apparently i'm not allowed a fridge in here as i won't leave the room apparently
