Who has a dediacted home theatre/media room? I have been flat out recently working on getting mine done. For the last 2 years since we built the house the front room has sat empty except a couple boxs and an old couch, With the front and back yard finally landscaped i was given the go ahead to put a room together for movies, xbox and tv.
Room is 4.1x3.6 mtr
3 seater black leather couch with chaise
DickSmith AV cabinet
90" pull down screen
Mitsubishi HC4000 1080p HD projector (ceiling mounted)
Philips HD set top box
Yamaha AV Amp
Eltax 5.1 floor standing speakers
Monster 14g cabling run through the wall cavities
Still looking for a blueray player and need to replace my xbox
Screen wall and ceiling and painted dark grey then the remaining walls are matt black. 5% tinted windows with block out blinds. 4x50w downlights at the rear of the ceiling.
The room had a shitty looking and feeling double sliding door that were promptly ripped down and i still need to hang double solid wood external doors. Once the doors are up i will start on accoustic treatments for the walls. In the form of accoustic panels and bass traps.
Unfortunetly it hasnt been all plain sailing, on the 20th of may i ordered a new projector and amp from a place over east that wholesales AV equipment, was told 10 day delivery. By the 2nd June still hadn't heard anything or got a postage tracking number so gave them a call, was told projector was out of stock but will be arriving next couple days and i should have it by the 10th. Then on Monday the 11th i looked on their website to check something only to be greeted with a blank page saying for more information contact this number and had details for a chartered accountant. Alarm bells went off instantly. Tuesday morning i called the accountant and the company had gone into liquidation on the 6th of june and my stuff had not been shipped although they had happily taken my money. the accountant informed me i had no chance of getting money from them and was best of contactiong my credit card company to reverse payment.
I done that but was informed its going to take 6-8 weeks for the dispute to be settled, so i am currently $2.5k out of pocket while i wait for it to be sorted. Not happy.
BUT i finished the wiring about 2ish today turned on projector to calibrate it and got to watch Isle of Man on an 90" screen in full HD and it was totally worth it!!! Cant wait for GP this weekend.
