What kind of HD TV do yall have?
Posted 29 June 2007 - 11:51 AM
All in all the project was about 9 months. I actually had an initial "false start" about 2 years earlier... but I really started in earnest late December of 05, and largely completed it in about September. I still have some small work to do here and there to satisfy me, and the inspectors.
I hired out framing and sheetrock. And carpet. I did the rest myself. We are plretty please with how it turned out. We wanted a shared "bonus space" that also performs well as a media space. Along with the other rooms, etc... it was quite a project.
The Pearl is a great projector, and some of Dish's better HD content on the 622 is awesmoe looking. Not as good as HD DVD can be, however....

9/10 (wish it had PiP/PoP features and direct Input tuning)
Hitachi 57S700 RPTV
10/10 as a TV. 5/10 as a feature in the Family room and its ability to be viewed in the middle of the day.
Panasonic 47" RPTV
7/10 as a TV. 9/10 after ISF calibration. 9/10 for not having a glare screen. 0/10 for being toddler friendly

A few months ago, I purchased a 15" Sylvania LC155SL8P LCD HDTV/EDTV. It is a 4x3 television with an ATSC tuner. This was for a guest room and also for football season as a second TV to move around. Picture is decent for the size and does a great job of SDTV. I have a D12 receiver connected today. This was about $250 dollars.

Where is your center channel speaker?? I would love a cabinet like yours but my fairly large Klipsch center placement is a problem.
Your setup is very attractive.
edit: Never mind I just figured it out. Is that a custom cabinet you had made??
