I am building a dedicated theater in a 18x24x8ft portion of a 24x39ft basement.

Well I have been a viewer for quite some time and have gotten many ideas here from everyone and thought I would share my system progress. Currently trying to find a Martin Logan Cinema on our local Craigslist for the system to match the L and R.

I suppose I should say that this AV addiction keeps my equipment in an ever revolving door but I think I've finally got some equipment that I may keep for a awhile. That is until I can convince my wife to let me get a 1080p projector to replace my aging 720p.:spend:
