So after a few years of bitching about needing a new tv, I finally did something about it, and completely revamped my living room. before: and after: Upgraded subwoofer, receiver, and screen, as well as furniture placement and light control. I moved my couch about 3 foot back, and bought 5 black out curtains for the side windows. It opens the room up quite a bit, and makes the screen less "in your face". Things aren't completely finished yet, I still have to run a power outlet in the ceiling and pull my hdmi cable as well. Also, I have to get rid of the pull chains on my ceiling fan, they hang down into the screen (as you can see in the X-Files pic). The receiver is a pioneer VSX-1121k, which completely blows my old 99 dollar Sony best buy special out of the water. Speakers are still Polk Monitor 70, but now I have them bi-amped with the new receiver, and it's opened them up quite a bit. Center is a CS2, and surrounds are Monitor 30. The subwoofer is a 24" wide TubaHT my dad and I built with a 300w Bash amp. The TubaHT is INCREDIBLE. It is ungodly loud, and I'm only putting ~15V to it max. I bought the plans here. BFM's designs are really good, and very efficient. I haven't decided how I'm going to finish the box yet, which is why it's still ugly plywood lol. After a shit ton of debate on a pj, I finally decided to go with the HD33, mainly because it was such a toss-up between the ones I was looking at, and I found a great deal on this one. I still don't have any 3d glasses, but 2d is incredible. The colors just POP and everything is crystal clear. The 120" screen is homemade. I bought a roll of black out cloth from Carlofet and followed their how-to-guide. The screen cost less than 120 bucks, and looks pretty damn good to me. I've got no idea how it compares to professional grade screens, but at 1/10th of the cost, I'm not too concerned. Oh yeah, i also bought a PS3, and got direcTV. No more pirating movies and tv for me. 2 guys I work with got busted for piracy, and I'd rather not go through that hassle, besides I've got plenty money, and I don't have to deal with scrounging for what I want to watch, or compressed audio/video any longer.
