What would be your dream home theater setup?

Mine is almost finished, the only piece of equipment i still have to buy is the pre/pro, in a few months when i got the $.

it will replace the Yamaha SR-50 Dolby Surround that i bought around 1985 and is today very marginal in what it can do.

let's hope you will also list your dream H/T setup.

Mine would be to have anything remotely like any of the dedicated HT's you see pictures of on here.

it will have taken me 3.5 years to renew my whole a/v system;
if you have patience, you'll eventually get it without it hurting.

I'm with Jake also. While I could dream about some of the incredibly massive and luxurious home theaters like the ones on ElectronicHouse.com or others- I don't think they would fit my style. Something simpler, maybe like SRoode's, Randy's, etc. would be my choice.

I have lucid dreams listening to the Revel Ultima2. Funny enough there are no subwoofers present but a dream setup would incorporate at least 4 of them.

Actually, since we're dreaming here, I'll take a 11.4 system please:
3 x M80s across the front
QS8s for sides, back and heights
M22s for wide
1 EP800 on each corner
all in a dedicated theater room and a separate amp for the M80s
Must as well dream BIG laugh

Bruno, that's the dream I'm trying to get to at some point, only I'm not committed to that specific subwoofer positioning, and I'm still back and forth on 2xVP180 or a single M80 as the center. I just need to get my amplifier stuff sorted and wait for a pre-pro that does everything I want.

I also want a projector that uses a laser instead of a lamp, but I think I'll be waiting a while for a decent one I can afford.

I also want my seating on a platform with at least one more ButtKicker.... Seating for at least 7 people is in the plan. I might also get a couple of those gaming chairs to put in front for when I have even more people over.

My basement should work out all right for my system. The main problem with it is the low ceilings. I'd love to have it in a room where I have more height to play with.
