I'll Play:

Old Setup (few years back)

[Image: 2.jpg]

New Setup

[Image: 3.jpg]

[Image: 1.jpg]

Equipment:

Pioneer PDP-5080HD

Yamaha RX-V3900
Paradigm Monitor 7 Fronts
Paradigm Titans Rears
Paradigm CC-390 Center
Paradigm PDR-10 Sub

Logitech Harmony One
PS3
Xbox 360


Mac Mini 1.86 (needs to be upgraded)

My only complaint so far with my setup is I am not able to get the Mini to display properly using a DVI-HDMI adapter through my Yamaha Receiver. Currently have it directly connected to plasma. I use the Yamaha for controlling the volume and get no on screen display.

Yes I need to take a course in cable management.

Great setup's in this thread make me jealous.

The floor looks great, I really like it. And, those speakers definitely look better with the grills on.

My setup is on a fairly standard leftover computer, but I have a projector that projects an image 5 m wide and a PA sound system that produce 3300W RMS raw power. Add to that that it's a big room (12x9 meters, a former church).

I don't have any shots with XBMC active, but here's the room:

From the back towards the screen. The screen takes up the entire front alcove.

From the screen, looking back. I have some monitors and stuff temporarily set up for testing in the shot.

Side view of the room, screen to the left.

So, now you can all go home and weep, I have the coolest home theater... Smile

uaaaaaaau... really big room. A former church?? When you make a statement like that, you should elaborate the story a bit more Wink

I'm actually a little disappointed. Before seeing the pictures I imagined a creepy old Gothic building. The kind of theater you wouldn't dare watch The Exorcist or play Left 4 Dead in Smile

it looks like you live in a hotel, not all its cracked up to be mate!

Except that you live in a church. I'm hesitant to set foot in one, and I'd never LIVE in one. Did the church go out of business and you bought it? Kidding aside, I am curious to know how one buys a church.


- Aslan2120 - 2011-04-10 18:33

I dont have any pictures of mine right now, but I am currently running 4 AppleTVs with the crystal HD card. They are all running Sam's ubuntu image off the hard drive and connected to my home network. A Netgear NV+ NAS with 3 TB running raid 5 holds all of the media and mysql is running on a Win7 computer that also has sickbeard for TV show management.

I love the AppleTVs (0nce you remove Frontrow) casue they are cheap and quiet.

It took a shile to get everything working right but the familly loves it now lol.

It appears to be a rather common thing in the UK/Europe. They are often small churches that then get sold off when the church needs to be bigger but the land cant accommodate a bigger church, so they movie to a new site. Its just a build really. There was an episode on Grand designs(or that show with the british blonde woman who follows first time renovators or something) I think it was where someone retrofitted a church into a home.

...and I'm sure that the 1st order reflections (particularly from the center channel drivers placed mere inches from a hard wood floor) don't render a pure, muddy mess of your sound stage. There's no way that your space isn't acoustically infinite meaning that your low end must really pressurize that room. Yeah, I'm positive that the room doesn't sound abysmal...you rock!
