Thanks everyone for your feedback.

Randy, you sound like Rick (Wid) finally got to you on those 80s.

Mark, not sure which way you vote- does loud mean rosewood, or does that only apply to the volume level?

Thanks Richeydog for the updates. If you do see the view results page, is it just a URL link you can post so I can just view it that way?

I'll see you all tomorrow.

Rosewood nudges ahead 17 to 15. Should I be the first to say if you base your decision on this poll, you're nuts?

Well, I was being cutesy in response to John's comment, but I DID vote for Rosewood!

One more vote for Rosewood.

When the lights are out, no one will know. When the lights are on, I think the slightly darker Rosewood will have the more elegant and stately presence, and a more interesting finish to look at if it does become the focus of someone's gaze.

Rosewood, 22
Cherry, 17

I think the rosewood in a high gloss finish would be a nice contrast.

That's one hell of a HT / basement you got there. You did a very fine job. I particularly like the windows up front. Cool idea.

What’s your screen size? How far away are you sitting from it? How high is it off the floor (minus stage height)? -I’m building / mounting my screen this weekend, hence the questions.....

I'm going have to say cherry...for the color plus the matching grain. The rosewood, in general, is beautiful and I think the color is quite suitable. However, it's prominent grain doesn't seem to be a good match for the room in my opinion (which seems to be opposite of some! ). So have you decided yet?

Wow, I'm thrilled at the great response. There have been some great comments to help, even if the overall vote is split 50/50.

Jack, thanks for providing all the updates- and yes, you have a point about all this- I realize it is ultimately my decision, but again the feedback I've gotten so far is great. This is much better than holding a clipboard and approaching people at the mall

Sonicfox, no I haven't decided yet. I am purposely going to wait about a week before doing anything. I want to be sure I don't change my mind after it's too late.

Mdrew:

It's a 16:9 screen that is 96" wide 54" tall, 110" diagonal (image size). I mounted it so that the bottom of the image is 32 inches off of the floor. The 1st row viewers are back 12 1/2 feet, and the 2nd row is about 18 1/2 feet back. My riser is 9" tall (limited by basement ceiling height of 7.5 feet, but it seems to be just enough that there are no problems).

Thanks also for the compliments, you will love the big screen for movies. Have fun!

I have to agree with Sonic, I think the Rosewood is stunning, but for room matching and overall appearance I would go with the Cherry. Good luck with your decision
