    Only a bigger picture. They can be a pain unless you have a dedicated movie room. They suck if you have light in the room. They can be noisy. You still need a screen to get the best out of them. The bulbs are expensive when they blow and are not covered by guarantee.



    Having said that, my old setup was great. I had all the cables installed into the ceiling and walls. The blueray player was in a separate room and I could acheave a 12 ft size picture which was awesome to watch.

        LG 50" Plasma

        Denon low end HDMI switching reciever

        Dayton in-wall speakers and center channel.

        Klipsch subwoofer



        Pretty good bang for the buck stuff. I ran the wire for the in-wall rear surround speakers but haven't installed the speakers yet. All the wiring is inside the walls so it looks clean.
        Rig:
        Ibanez S2170FB
        Soldano X88R Clone Preamp
        TC Electronic G-Major 2
        50W EL34 Rack Power Amp
        Lopo 2x12 Cab.

        Stuff I've built:
        5W tube amp (1 12AX7/1 EL84)
        Ruby Cigar Box Amp
        X88R Clone
        50 Rack Power Amp

            We had one of those old InFocus ones growing up and yeah if there was any light in the room it kinda sucked. You need a dedicated area or somewhere you can pretty much blackout any light. Bulbs (especially back then!) were $$ but it was cool. We always took it to friends' houses to play Goldeneye on it.

                    I have an ancient Technics Stereo Receiver and a pair of Boston A40's.



                    It sounds fine to me.

                        It's old stuff now , but I see no reason to upgrade, it's bloody awesome.....for movies



                        imo music is not good through 5.1 system even in true bypass mode, still "harsh"



                        nad3020i and mission floorstanders and a project turntable ..again old stuff (well the deck is fairly new but the amp is 20 + years old) for listening pleasure




                        yeah i'm kinda onboard with this- if i get some new floorstanding speaks i'm just going to put my current ones in my bedroom and get a decent amp or whatnot to run them with. i finally got rid of the TV in my bedroom so i'd like to have something other than my clock radio in there
