I’ve written a bunch of blogs on my home theater including the evolution to where it is today but haven’t written one listing the details, until now. Pictures below were taken with my Droid phone so the quality could be better.
My philosophy behind buying the products below was getting the best value for the dollar. Achieving that required me to develop CDave’s Audio and Home Theater Value Guide. It’s currently (and probably always be) under development.Note: Some of the links may break over time since they are pointing to where I purchased the product.
Front speakers are Magnepan MMG.
Surround Speakers are Magnepan MMGW.
The receiver is a Marantz 5003.
The media player is a Sony PS3. The PS3 is used to play DVD’s and Bluray disks as well as stream music.
Projector & Screen
The projector is a 720P Sanyo PLV-Z60. The screen was made from a 4′x8′ sheet of vinal like material, often used to cover walls.
I made my own acoustic treatments. Some details can be found in this post. Since then, I refined how the panels are constructed.
eMachines LCD monitor. I will often use this to display the video rather then the projector when I just want to listen to music.
Since the Marantz only has one HDMI out port I needed to buy an HDMI port splitter.
All electronics are connected via HDMI cables purchased from Monoprice.
