Lets see YOUR Home Theater:


Recommended Posts

Scooter: I really love what you've done with your room. You have a lot of the elements incorporated into it that I wanted but never had the room to do it with. Mainly, I wanted LaScala's too and I really wanted a stage-like area below the screen. You also have so much more seating than I am able to have. You truely have accomplished a very envious room! Hat's-off to you, my friend! -Glenn

I really like the clean lines for your setup very nice and tasty. As far as toe in goes it is generally accepted that 20 degrees is what you should position them at and then go from there.


Thanks for the nice comments. Coming from someone who has had there HT featured in a mag is well makes me feel pretty good. Still have a couple of small things left but not much. From there I will just mess with it.

Sweet work on the entertainment center Nezff. Very nice quality work.

I agree with the toe in comments as it has made a huge difference in my setup. My listening position is about 10ft away and you can see that they are slightly angled inwards. If I look behind my left speaker, the center lines up just to the left of the middle of the couch and the right speaker lines up just to the right of the middle of the couch. Several times I have walked up to my center channel speaker to see if it was turned on and it was not. One other suggestion is to pull the speakers out slightly in front of the entertainment center. This will help keep the entertainment center from interfering with the soundwaves emitted from the speaker.

Oops, forgot to post the pic of my setup.


At this angle, you can see that they are slightly out in front of the entertainment center

For those wondering if the firmware 2.30 for dts hd-master audio worked. It does. You check it in two ways. Pop in a DTS HD MASTER AUDIO movie and play it. Press the select and it should display the info on what the movie is playing in. There it should say DTS HD master 5.1 or 7.1. The second way is to pop in a 7.1 DTS HD MASTER movie in. When you do your receiver will display LPCM, PCM, Multi Channel In, etc, (depending on what receiver you have). When the movie is playing your receiver (depending on make and model)will display 7 channel input vs. 5 channel input. and some receiver with small speaker display on the receiver will light up all 7 speakers. PLEASE NOTE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A HDMI 1.3 TO RECEIVER AUDIO. YOU NEED A 1.1 and ABOVE AND A RECEIVER TO ACCEPT AUDIO THROUGH HDMI, thus you do not have to purchase a receiver that has the new audio decoding as it wouldn’t be used, the PS3 decodes it fro you. I HAVE a DENON 2307 1.1 HDMI. Here are the pics to prove it.


Rush Hour 3 Before 2.30 update, its on dts master audio option. i only get dts 5.1 core
