Call me a Home Theater snob, but, I don't think a room with any size flat panel TV is a "Theater Room". There has to be at least a 100" screen (fixed or motorized) and a decent projector (I prefer the JVC RS2
). Fully controlled lighting, motorized screen curtain, masking
, tiered seating and sound treated walls. If the room doesn't consist of all of these, then it's just a media room.
EPSON is heading in the right direction with the Ensemble HD system. It includes everything you need to get sound and projection into your "Theater Room" on a budget. The system includes a 100" motorized screen with integrated speakers, projector (720p or 1080p) with ceiling mount that includes the rear speakers built into the mount. All the cables, a universal remote, subwoofer, and amplifier/receiver. EPSON designed the system so it can be installed in about 4 hours.
The 720p system retails for $5000 while the 1080p version goes for $7000. Not bad for a complete audio/video system... for more information check out the EPSON Ensemble HD website
