Hi Steve:

Thats one awesome looking HT. Love the sitting arrangement.
What projector / screen are u using?

I really wish we could have basements in California :-(

Regs,
Avi


Hi Avi,

The projector is a Panasonic PT-AE900U, which I really love, but would love to trade in for their newer series which is 1080p and has more lumens and a better contrast ratio. For a totally dark room like mine though, it works very well.

The screen is a 126" Carada Criterion Series (1.78 to 1 ratio) with a brilliant white finish. I can't say enough great things about this screen. It was easy to assemble and install, and it is really beautiful.

Another great thing about my wife is she gave me the basement to do what I please with (she got the other 2 floors though)...

Thanks for the compliment Fred.

Riffraff! What are you talking about? Canadians not only make the best beer, now they make the best speakers! ;\) A big hello from your neighbor down South!

Steve, welcome. Very elegant room indeed. Your comment about Canadian speakers probably won't get disagreement here, but beer is a different matter(note that there's a very lengthy beer thread about a week back in the "Watercooler" section).

Sroode - you are going to be so AMAZED when you get those speakers. I just picked up my Epic 80 system (sub still on order) about 2 weeks ago and still marvel at the quality. Even my wife is astounded with how good they sound (and look).

We were on the couch last night watching an HD over the air broadcast and she turned to me and said... you know, this setup really is amazing. \:D Considering how supportive your wife is already, she's going to be singing Axiom's praises when they arrive. Have fun!

Very nice room, SRoode.

By the way, I have the same screen and projector and also love the combination. In case you didn't know, the Panny will accept forced 1080p/24. You can set a player like the XA2 to output 1080p/24 and then go into Panny's setup menu to confirm.

You will be floored with the sound of your Axioms. With all this people buying two subs, I feel it's time to go for a 7.2. Wait....dual centers, above and below the screen, is supposed to be the ideal setup per Alan. So, I guess it's time to go for an 8.2. Wait...Ian uses 4 subs, doesn't he? So, where the heck does this end?

Thanks again to everyone for your very kind words!

I have a Denon DVD-2930ci which supposedly can output 1080p. I think when I tried to do this however, the projector output was all messed up. I read the manual for the project and it does not say it supports 1080p.

How do I force it in the Panny menu?
