My mini-home theater setup

Here's a picture of my home theater while we were building it.



It consists of:

96" Screen
Proxima Projector
7.1 Acoustic Research Speaker System
Sony STR-DE835 Digital Audio Receiver
Sony DVP-C600D 6 Disc CD/DVD Changer
Sony Playstation 2
Xbox
Monster cables


Probably nowhere near as crazy and pimp as some of the setups you guys have. But for a college kid, not bad, heh.

Any reason you went with a 4:3 screen?

I bought the setup from another fanatic, and that's how he had it set up.

Ken:
Are those your rear surround speakers hanging on your wall? Ideally, you should put those behind you to get the surround effect You probably knew that, but I thought I'd throw that out there. Set-up looks good, except you should change your screen to a widescreen aspect. I've heard of people who are on budgets use the blackout material for curtains as their screen material.

Hey Simon, I have 2 other speakers to each side of the projector and a subwoofer right under it.
