    Hello

    I moved into my new home March last year and more or less straight away started planning my new home cinema which has always been a dream.

    The cinema was completed last year but because of two little girls and starting a business i have not been able to start a thread beforehand.

    The kit list is as follows:
    Epson EH-TW9000
    130" screen.
    Panasonic TX-P50G30B
    Miller and Kreisel S150/SS150 and a MX-350THX
    Oppo BDP-93
    Earthquake 10b/XJ-600R

    Projector has been calibrated by Steve Withers.

    I will post some more pictures later but i wish i had took more!

    Looks really smart that.

    I take it the main cinema is the projector pic, and the LCD/LED TV is for normal viewing?

    I hope i can have a screen even half that size at some point when we get a bigger place.

    Any more plans/upgrades or is it finished? or i guess you could say, when is it ever ''finished''? theres always something else you'd like to add or upgrade lol

    I have waited a long time to have myself a av room!!
    The house we are in is perfect for us,it has three rooms downstairs one we use for as a dining room, the second one as the kids room so all their toys are in one room!!!! And the third one is the av room.

    For me the room is finish but only until 4k becomes mainsteam and then i will see about getting a new projector and screen if funds allow.

    And some more pictures.

    Making the panels ready for the devore fabric.
    My previous pictures show the screen area before and after the devore was installed and i must say the difference is amazing!

    Yes it does feel great!
    After a long time dreaming and then actually building the room it was nice to sit down and watch a movie!

    The first pictures are the latest.

    Thanks :)

    The speakers are brilliant and being on the mk stands means i can have them below the screen otherwise on normal stands the screen would of had to be moved up and would be too high imho.

    Any more plans/upgrades??? (Usually of course the answer is yes, but if so, specifically what?)

    I think you've done a great job of using the black devore around the screen to maximise contrast, you're right, it makes all the difference.

    How much space is there behind the screen to the wall? Any chance the S150's would fit behind??? Maybe the evolution could be swapping over to on-wall S150 Mk II's??? What does the rest of the room look like? Just thinking, if you wanted to, I'm sure the sub could be hidden into a makeshift coffee table or something? The leads would just run under the carpet.

    Anyway, just keep enjoying buddy!! :thumbsup:

    Hi,
    Was the Chimney stack a decoration peice or a functional item before creating the projector shelf?
    I am considering attacking my chimney stack to make a hidden projector shelf, but I can not decide if its a good idea or not!
    Like your work!
    Cheers

    The chimmey stack has not been used for years so was not a functional item.
    Due to the screen size and not wanting to max out the zoom my only option was to install the projector within the chimney.

    I hope you decide soon as these dark nights are closing in quite quickly and perfect movie viewing time:D
