Projector ordered. I found a Refurb unit from a Canadian retailer at $650. It doesn't get better than that. The lamp is guaranteed to be at 80% of life or better, so its a good deal all around.

Lorde's Pure Heroine is free on Google Play Music for now. It really is a worthwhile album. I consistently put every track in playlists for work, and I never want to skip over any of them. Pick it up while it's $0.00. Lorde - Pure Heroine

Very nice. I might consider diffusers for our one side wall (which is presently devoid of anything), however i like them more for the aesthetics, like art on the wall in a HT room. I would have to weigh their sonic influence vs. my preference for the

Yup. Some people go all out nuts. I thought about the hangers like the ones I pictured above, but the more I thought about it, my weakest link would still be sound getting up through the ceiling, so instead I put my few extra dollars there to try t

The Denon X4000 that Mark is considering would be a good buy, but my preference would still be the Onkyo 818 factory refurb still available for about $600 from Accessories4less .

Once again, thanks! I have read so many threads where there is zero tolerance in soundproofing, and others rail someone for cutting a corner. In reality, how would I know the difference unless someone like you, WITH EXPERIENCE ,chimes in. Thank

You still want the walls to be structurally sound. Yes, some flanking sound will go along the ceiling joists between the two walls, but unless someone uses clips to isolate the walls from the ceiling: I didn't do this and I am very happy with t

I probably shouldn't be listened to. I haven't paid as close of attention to this stuff as I used to, simply because I'm waiting on all of those big things I mentioned. Plus, I no longer care about SACD and DVD-Audio, and it sounds like you have mor

I think, picture quality-wise, an OPPO with Darby would be better than a 4K Ultra-HD TV. I have OPPO with Darby and the picture quality is noticeably sharper with Darby on. I think I'm using 60% on the Darby setting. I doubt you can say that for 108
