Hello All- New member and my first post here. I came across this thread so thought I would share my 2016 upgrade plans for my 1st projector set-up. We purchased our current house 2-years ago that included a "somewhat" finished basement so I'm working on a new buildout using some of the existing in an effort to save a buck or 2 that can go towards upgrading my gear. Don't tell the wife. 😉. The room had an existing drop ceiling so I pulled it insulated and painted the tiles to reduce reflection- I'll create a post to the theater build thread with more details. A couple pics below regardless.

My upgrades for 2016 as part of my new build:

Sony HW55ES
Oppo 103D
Screen: Undecided but leaning towards Stewart Cima Neve 123"
Processor: Undecided- Emotiva or Marantz
Amps: Undecided- waiting for the release of Emotiva Gen-3s (hope this happens soon as I'm about ready to purchase)

I'll also need a new sub that can shake a concrete slab now that I'll be in the basement. I welcome any feedback.

No budget for any big upgrades... I would like to get a better "rack" built for my equipment... one that allows easier access to the back of things vs the current setup where access to the back involves trying to slide the equipment around and using a mirror. If something changes and I magically get more "spare cash" I want to switch over to a projector/screen, but that involves a lot more than just putting in those 2 items as you all know. No real interest in Atmos yet... I've been trying to avoid thinking about it.
Funny to look back at this after just about finishing my current project.

What has actually happened so far is: double doors into the room became a wall, new doorway was created, built a riser, got 3 new home theater seats, and added a HTPC to the setup!

Planning on a salamander decor 25U rack and switching out control4 in favor of savant.

We'll see how much of that gets accomplished.

No disassemble, Stefanie!

Some of you know I've been contemplating tearing down my 2-ch He Man Rig for a while now. That diabolical scheme has come to fruition, and am now faced with selling or trading for HT gear. Well, the going prices for my Revel Salons are disappointing, and I can't really fathom absorbing the accelerated depreciation I've seen this past year or two. So guess what? I'm keeping them! Out go the B&W CM-9 towers and CM-2 S2 Centre speakers (in shiny HT white, of course). In comes a shiny new B-Stock Revel Voice! The surrounds are now seriously outclassed, so if anyone feels sorry for me please send donations to my address of record!

Another sneak peak: Out of The Green Room into (drum roll, please)... a bigger small room (until we move, like Philm63 above). Extras? Seating capacity increases from 1 to 2 (lol)!!

.
I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

That's why he said "not planning"
Well I guess my plans were not good... I purchased 2 Crest Audio Amps, and a 2nd DDRC-88A, and then upgraded it to the 88M. I did eliminate some equipment though. I removed the Yamaha MXA-5000 amp, Oppo 103, and Xilica XP-4080 to pay for the upgrades.

My Home Living room Theater
Samsung 65" FP, Yamaha CX-A5100, Xilica XP4080, (4) Klipsch RP160MS, (4) JBL 8340As, (2) Yamaha P2500s amps, PS3, XBox One, (1) Asus mini pc, (2) Furman Power Conditioners, Darbee Darcet, and a Project RPM 1.5 Carbon turntable..
