I’m extremely lucky to be able to have a home theater setup. I’ve missed a bunch of 3d movies over the years and decided its high-time I’m able to enjoy them on a large screen from the comfort of home. I’ll keep this thread updated as things change and I’m able to attempt to right a review.
Projector (Benq W1070):
3d dlp projector from BenQ. Tons of features including user-configurable settings for brightness, contrast, and color for color accuracy. Out of the box though I haven’t had to change a thing to get a decent picture. It works pretty good during the day, but since I don’t watch much tv in the day its not a problem. The 3D mode is plenty-cool, I’ve had zero issues with 3d blu rays and the quality is amazing. Below are some pictures:
Stereo (Yamaha HTR-7065):
I started out with an Onkyo from Fry’s, the TX-NR616 and kept having issues. I’d have to unplug it from the wall for a couple of seconds to fix a daily hdmi sync issue. I found the Yamaha at Costco and couldn’t pass it up. The sound is amazingly clear and great for movies right out of the box. I’m also able to control the thing from my android phone and tune to local internet radio stations. I’m still gathering speakers so I only have a left, right, center, and subwoofer but that seems fine for now.
I’ll need to throw up some more pictures and gather my HTPC build.
