It was all done by the designer, I just told him what size HDTV and seating distance. I'm sure the charges reflected the work to do the cutouts and 'pillars'. This is the outfit that designed and built it in case you're interested: http://www.finishedbasement.com

Alright, here is the upstairs setup picks. Then ill go take some downstiars pics and write that setup and post about that.


The ever so long 50' Cat6 coming into my room.

View from Distance

Another angel

Close up (w00t, PS1 games!, still have PS from launch date too, just in a box)

The Mighty PS2 (From Launch Date, working like a beast with Network and 40GB Hard Drive)

I own a few PS2 games? Just added FF12 and Socom 3: Comebined Assualt in 2 weeks

I really wish when you turned on the xbox, it would say in a deep throaty voice "XBOX!" seems fitting

Look, my GameCube. Got it only for Final Fantasy: Christal Chronicles lol

My love, PSP (also launch date unit). Its easily the best electronic unit ive bought. Been wanting to get a 4GB stick for it but with news of 8GB, ive been debating

Just got Killzone and Ace Combat X. I personally, love UMD movies as you can see. Newest addition is X-Men: The Last Stand

I can not believe how much stuff illegal has. I could never have so much stuff. I would look around and see all the money just sitting there not getting used, not earning interest.

I have to sell or trade in everything I don't play or use anymore.

I have only had one TV at a time, 1 PC at a time, and 1 console video game system at a time.

Main home theater

1920x1080 Native Resolution (1080P24 compatible)

Toshiba HD-A35 HD-DVD Player (1080P24 compatible)
LG BH200 Super Blu HD DVD/Blu-ray Player (Multi-region 1080P24 compatible)

Sony PS/3 60GB Blu-ray Player (1080P24 compatible)
JVC HM-DH40000U D-VHS Player
FIOS Motorola QIP6416-2 HD-DVR
Custom HTPC (1080P24 compatible)
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
Integrated GeForce 9300 Hybrid SLI, CUDA and PhysX w/ HDMI
4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 Memory

Klipsch Reference RC-25 Speakers - Left/Center/Right
Klipsch Reference RB-25 Speakers - Side L/R and Back L/R
Klipsch Reference RW-12 Subwoofer
4 Coaster Studio Home Theater Seats
Customized with 2 Bass Shakers per seat
All Controlled through Logitech Harmony 880 Remote

Now some pictures

My main screen is my 12 feet wide wall painted in light grey paint with an eggshell finish. This results in ~150" diagonal 16:9 picture.


My main seating is a group of 4 Coaster HT seats that I purchased as a part of AVS PowerBuy. Each seat is wired with 2 Bass Shakers connected to a separate 2 channel amp.


Image is projected from a Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080P24 Projector. The image is incredibly life like and very quiet to boot.


My DVDs, Blu-rays, and HD-DVDs are arranged alphabetically into 2 separate racks. Each rack will hold ~800 discs. Rack 1 contains my US/European/Japanese/Hong Kong DVDs.


Rack 2 contains my Korean DVDs and HDMs (HD DVDs and Blu-rays)


Equipment rack contains 3 HD DVD players, Blu-ray player, D-VHS VCR, and HD DVR as well as HTPC and Laser Disc player.


I love the picture from this setup. It is truly like being in a movie theater without all the noise and interruptions.






to be continued

That is a very cool setup xradman. I love the chairs,

"Each seat is wired with 2 Bass Shakers connected to a separate 2 channel amp."

That sounds so cool!
