Well, after many years of wanting a real home theater, I finally got one. So here I am showing off with a ton of pics. Enjoy. Also, because I am vain and want stupid things, if you like my theater please take a moment to click over to the other pics under my avatar and rate it. I know it doesn’t matter, but I want that “Top Ranked Home Theater” gold star. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments. I’m pretty happy with how everything turned out. I’ve got a bit of an echo between the screen and seats that I need to figure out. Other than that the room is a ton of fun.

Nice room and collection! Congrats on making your dream happen. It is tough to say for sure but the echo could be somewhat tamed with a couple of acoustic panels in some strategic areas.

Yeah I plan to get a couple panels and put them on the side walls. Just from doing a clapping test, thatís what I think is causing the echo. Itís not very bad when watching a movie, but I can hear it a bit during quieter dialog only scenes.

Congrats on that great setup/room! Very jealous . It’s home theaters like this one that inspire me to have one once I get a house.

Try checking the corners as well for the echo. I’ve noticed they cause them a lot of the times too.

Thanks. Your setup is super slick and I like it a lot too. For myself, I was looking for something dark and cozy. That is why I ended up with the room I have now.

So I have been trying to come up with a name for my theater room and I finally settled on one that I like. The Blue Harvest Theater.

Minor picture update today. I added my Nintendo Switch to the setup. Also, added a motion activated LED light strip under one of the shelves in the cabinet to make things a bit more visible.
