No pics yet but I will try and get some pictures as the process goes on. What I have is a 10x20 room where all my home theater stuff resides. What I am planning on doing is a couple stage process: First stage is all the astethics: 1 - Replace the crappy couch with something nicer. What I ended up getting and it will be in on Friday is what everyone has nicknamed the "Fear of Intimacy" couch. Basically it is a recliner on one side with a center console and then another recliner attached. Also, replaced the table that is in there. 2 - New componenet rack. Everything in the room as far as tv/dvd rack/speakers is all black. The components reside on a ugly 25 inch TV stand that is particle board color. 3 - Speaker stands for the rear speakers. Right now they are on end tables that are ugly as sin. 4 - Painting the room. It is kindof a light brown color and I want to do a darker brown color to match the couch. 5 - Red velvet curtains throughout. Right now there is an entrance way and it has 2 there but I want to add another set and then go ahead and add some over the main window in the room. My goal is that the room can be pretty close to pitch dark. The second phase will deal with lighting: 1 - Basically the only light in the room is provided through a floor lamp. I would like to put 6 can lights in. 2 in the rear of the room 2 in the middle and then 2 in the front. The 2 in the front will be on one dimmer since it reisdes behind the TV. The other 4 on a seperate dimmer. 2 - Remote control capable of handling all of the components and also the dimmers. Macros would be a huge plus. Would like when I hit play on the DVD it goes and and shuts the four lights off and then dims the 2 behind the rear. Pause dims the four lights and turning off turns the lights on. The 3rd part is the meat and potatos: 1 - Replace all the speakers. Right now I have a polk audio center and a sony 10 inch sub, 2 floorstandings in the front, and finally 2 bookshelves in the rear. Already have my heart set on Klipsch RC35 in the center, RC25 for the sides, and the RB25 in the rear. Questions: 1 - What is everyone using for component racks: I found http://www.studiotech.com/jsp/productDetail.jsp?prodID=3 looking around. Has anyone had any luck with this? 2 - Same for speaker stands. I was thinking of http://www.studiotech.com/jsp/productDetail.jsp?prodID=16 in either the 30 or 24 inches. Where do you want the rear speakers located at as far as eye level or sitting down? 3 - Good place to buy heavy drapes online? I have checked the local stores and they want about 80 bucks/pair for the ones I want. 4 - Any constructive critiscm?
