Update: page 5

I've been finishing my basement for nearly a year now. It's been just short of done for the last month. I've been focusing on building the theater and put some of the other basement things on hold.

Basement build thread if anyone is interested


Epson 5050ub projected on a dark gray wall for now

I built this 150" 16x9 frame over the weekend. And the acoustic transparent screen material is going on tomorrow. The frame is made out of 1x4 oak from home depot. It definitely seems over kill, but it's an easy way to get wood that is actually straight.

In media closet is a denon x3600h, ps4, and a chromecast that I got for free. I was planning on getting an Nvidia shield for streaming, but I'm happy with the chromecast for now.

I only have the two speakers at the moment.
Klipsch rp 8000f.

Im going to work my way up to 7.2.

klipsch makes a bunch of built in speakers. Would be a clean looking install

Ill be installing an in wall center channel. I'm maxed out on 16:9 screen size so it leaves space for the towers. And I also like the look of a couple of towers. I could have gone bigger if I did 2.35:1. But most of my content is 16:9 these days.

Epson 5050ub nice!!! worth it for 4k? did you consider any o the Benq?

I mean I think so! I've still only projected on a textured wall. But some scenes have looked incredible. The contrast/blacks really shine with this projector.

I considered the BenQ for a little bit. I also considered the epson 4010 for a while. But after reading AVS forums, it was pretty clear the 5050 is the leader for projectors under 3k.

5.1? -- Like for a shoe closet?

That being said.. just get a new Yamaha, Denon, or Marantz Receiver. They all have Alexa/Google built in, and they also have phone and tablet apps that work well.

Then hook up your speakers and sub. Add a Sonos connect or port to the AVR if you want to implement SONOS.

Easy as that.
