Dedicated Home Theaters require a lot of equipment, materials, lighting, seating, cables, fabric, carpet and so forth to look and sound their best.

The process never ends so I’m always tweaking, adjusting and upgrading.  I’m on my 4th Disc player, my fourth projector, my second screen, my second set of subwoofers and my third sound processor.

One can spend a crazy amount of money on a theater and an unlimited amount of time doing things with it – other than watching and listening.  We all prioritize our choices with a blend of time, knowledge and budget.   Here are my current choices (continually being re-evaluated and upgraded):
