Wow.. thanks guys. I'm suprised it didn't actually PUT you to sleep. :)

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....

How about my 5 year old 47" Panny RPTV. It only gets 4/10 because every couple of months I have to fix the convergence. Ten hours parked in front of a crosshatch isn't what I'd prefer to be doing.

See signature for TVs. I would rate them 9 out of 10 only because something better will come out eventually. That being said, they are both great TVs. It took me a long time to convince my better half that we "needed" to go HD, and now she understands why. :D

Does my Insignia 20" widescreen LCD with DVD player count? It's HDTV-ready but no HD tuner.

I have a HP PL4260 42" Plasma 720P that I purchased a year ago for 1,300. I think you can get this TV for about 1K today. I am very pleased with the quality of picture. Only drawback is the lack of settings for picture position on the set. Luckily, not much of an overscan issue with my receiving equipment.

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.

Thanks

edit: Never mind I just figured it out. Is that a custom cabinet you had made??
