Vizio 42 in. With new passive 3D. RealD 3D glasses work just fine, no LCD shutter glasses. Playback through PS3 blu-Ray 3D. I'm back on the GRID. As usual, Visio sound not up to par. Looking for alternative sound. I like the idea of using a Hi-Fi system. When I use to sell A/V at circuit city, I remember helping a customer set up his Hi-Fi VCR through his 1976 era Hi-Fi with massive speakers. He was so impressed that his old system could do that. Jurasic Park ble his mind and pissed off the neighbors. My have to find a Kenwood Hi-Fi. By the way, the Visio 3D TV cost me $700.00 at wall-mart. If your in the market, I would check it out.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Holy Schnikies! That's quite an impressive home theater, Doc! Can I come watch movies at your house? LOL!

My present setup:

An old hand-me-down 19 inch RCA tube television
Pioneer DVD player

(Pretty sad, isn't it?)

But presently, I'm saving up for my planned future setup:

Mitsubishi WD-73C10 73 inch 3D DLP HDTV
Sony BDP-S570 3-D Blu-Ray player
Denon AVR-1911 7.1 Home Theater Receiver
JBL CS4800BG 5.1 HT speaker system
JBL CS400SATBG Satellite Speakers (Pair)

I'm hoping for a good Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale so I can hopefully buy it all at once for a great deal. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Once it's all set up in my apartment, my neighbors are gonna hate me! LOL!

I previously owned one of the 73" Mitsubishi DLP's. I think it had great pictures quality. It's unfortunate that many people don't buy them anymore "just because it's not flat and wall mountable." It's a great bargain for people looking for a large screen.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Oh cool! I'm so glad to hear from someone who owned one! That's really great to hear, Doc! I've been reading all the great reviews on it and everybody seems to just love it! I don't care about it not being flat or wall mountable as its going to sit on a stand in my apartment anyway. My living room is really small, so I'm definitely going to get the immersive experience! I'll definitely be hitting the 36 degrees angle from my couch! I'll be somewhat following the THX and/or SMPTE recommendations as much as my viewing space will allow. Someday when I buy a place of my own, I hope to upgrade and do something similar to your dedicated theater room, Doc. I may even theme it after TRON! But for now, I'm just hoping I can get it on Black Friday for $999 or cheaper! If I get all this stuff setup, I'll have to resurrect this thread and post some pictures! Thanks again for the vote of confidence on the 73 incher, Doc! buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Nice job, Lew! I bet that looks and sounds great! Much better than my 19 inch tube! LOL! How far back are you from the TV when you're watching it? I like that immersive experience, so I'm gonna be relatively close when I upgrade to the big screen. Right now, I'm just grateful that I can watch TRON: Legacy at all on the DVD that came with the 5-disc Collector's Edition. I already have the 25th Anniversary edition of TRON. So right now, I'm still able to get my TRON fix every now and then! LOL!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

To really appreciate the best picture quality blu-ray has to offer, one really must sit at the best possible distance. I found this link very helpful in giving guidelines for calculating optimal viewing distance based on screen size.

Nice setup. Looks like your using dual subwoofer setup. I use a similar 7.2 setup myself and I find the base is much more even than a single setup. Also, it is much easier to get an "omni directional" sound out of them. Lot of people forget that you should not be able to tell where the LFE channel is coming from in an ideal setup. I have found that subwoofer placement is actually quite difficult and most manuals that come with stereos don't talk about this other than having it in a little picture that places it somewhere in the front soundstage.

For readers with one sub a good way to find optimal sub woofer placement is to put the subwoofer in your seating position (ideally ear level) and then crawl around on the floor and wherever it sounds the best, that is where you should place the sub. It's easier than moving it into position, listening, moving, listening, moving,... etc.

Thanks! Your 2ch. Looks pretty sweet aswell. As to subwoofer placement there wasn't much info regarding placement and moving these beasts around is a chore at 110 lbs each . Bit overbuilt but they sound wonderfully smooth and roll into the midrange quite well.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

110 lbs, damn. I had trouble moving mine around and they way around 65 lbs. Reminds me of when I was moving my amplifier which weighs in around 115 lbs, I had to ask for help.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Yea that's guestimated. The cabinet itself is 85lbs minus subwoofer/plate amp/damping material/wiring. The subwoofer is 26.8 lbs and the amp is 6 lbs. So I guess I am underestimating the weight. I've considered doing separates but my setup far exceeds the room.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Sounds like you need a bigger room! I find that the room is also an integral part of a proper setup. My Martin Logan's really come alive when they are properly placed. My room is about 500 sq feet (approx 20x25) and it really helps that I can move the speakers around and off the walls a bit. I keep them about 5 feet off the wall and this helps with a nice full sound-stage. I think this is even more important with dipole/bipole speakers and electrostats.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

The bonus room where the theater is setup measures out to be 15x11. Options are limited for speaker positions. Have you done a blind test to see if there was a difference between bi-amping and single amp speaker wiring? I'm wondering if it's worth the hassle to bi-amp my front surroundsbuy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I use Martin Logan Vantage speakers (
http://www.martinlogan.com/products/vantage) which have a powered subwoofer built in for the lows and electrostatic speakers for the mids and highs. I have them biwired but not bi-amped. I don't think biamping would do too much since the subs have their own amplification circuits and power. Actually, I don't believe you can really biamp these even though they have 2 sets of 5-way binding posts. Also, since I drive the two channels with a close to $10k amp, i'm a little hesitant to invest that kind of money for questionable (if any) quality improvements. Definitely interesting thought though.

I think the effect of biamping has a lot to do with each individual speaker and amp configuration. If your amp is underpowered or low efficiency speakers then you would get a greater benefit from biamping just due to the extra power.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Well, since I turned 40 on Friday, I decided to treat myself and buy a big-screen TV. I didn't end up getting the 73 inch like I posted earlier. After taking another look at my living room setup, a 73 inch screen would have been just too much for such a little room. So I bought a Mitsubishi WD-60738 60-inch DLP HDTV. It was an open box item on TigerDirect for $599, so I couldn't pass it up. I also bought a Panasonic SC-BTT350 3D Blu-ray 5.1 Home Theater System for $319. I bought two pair of the Optoma BG-ZD101DLP Link 3D glasses for $69 each. And I also bought 2 pairs of Atlantic Satellite speaker stands for $29 each. So hopefully, I can transform my little apartment living room into my own personal theater. Coming from my little 19-inch tube television, I'm sure it will be a dramatic transition for me! LOL!

Once everything comes in and I get it all set up, I'll take pictures and post them on here. I can't wait to watch TRON and TRON: Legacy in all their 60-inch, 1080p, 3D, 5.1 surround sound glory! LOL! buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online
