Work in progess !!! (53 photos)(4.9) (110 ratings)
This all started back in March 2009. I decided to buy the Pioneer blu-ray player but after watching the first HD movie and hearing the sound coming out of my speakers I knew something was wrong. First my old A/V (Pioneer VSX-5700S) could not decode the new audio format (it really didn't sound good). So I bought the Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K but now the speakers didn't do the audio track justice. Then I started hanging around here and after a few months we decided that by the end of 2009 we would have a dedicated HT room. We had established a budget for the finished ROOM but me hanging around here didn't help our budget at all. Without going into details, lets just say I blew the budget and it's not quite finished yet.
Except for the Hitachi HDTV, everything else was bought in 2009.

Just received the first DVD / BD rack from Racks & Stands. Its made of solid oak and the only thing I had to do is screw in the two feet. It arrived fully assembled. Now that I'm sure about the quality, I just ordered another one that should arrive next week. Also started filling in the blank spaces on the walls. More to come

Moved the DVD rack to make space for the second rack that should arrive on Jan 15th or 18th and started to install the laminated posters.

Second rack finally arrived. Now I've got room for new BD's. Also, I've got to start doing touch ups here and there to fix several little mistakes but at least the biggest part is now done.

Having a dedicated room for movies and music was IMO the best way to go. We still have the upstairs 50" Panasonic plasma for regular TV programing and movies. This is the only room our cats are not allowed in and we also don't smoke, eat or drink in this room. We have the living room for all stuff.

Almost done Need something on the front wall but not sure what we want. New plasma (58" or 65") and another SVS NSD are strong possibilities for 2010 and we will have to take the plasma into account when trying to decide for that front wall.
