Re: Need help putting together a system

MK S150 Speakers Front and Centre (these will be behind an acoustically transparent screen), get stands that will put them at eye level
MK S150T side surrounds
MK M5 rear surrounds
(to be honest I am not sure if the above speakers are still available but if they are they are one of the nicest sounding dynamic speakers I have personally heard)

Subs – HSU VTF-15U DualDrive

PreAmp - Marantz AV7701

Amplifier - Emotiva XPA at 5 and a 2 (the 2 is for your main L & R and the 5 is for the others)

Projectors Panasonic AE8000U (in 2.35:1 Cinemascope setting)

Screen: according to the projector central calculator a 120” diagonal 2.35 screen will be 111” wide. Look at Stewart filmscreen which one will depend: Fixed or retractable? Will you be watching non HD material? If so you may want to look at a masking system (manual or power)

BluRay – Oppo digital BDP-103D

Cabling – Don’t spend money on “name brand” look at www.monoprice.com

Other thoughts

Acoustic treatments – absorption panels behind the front three speakers http://gikacoustics.com/
