Yep, all done. After dreaming of having a home cinema room for the last six years, it's finally become a reality. I had the projector, screen and surrounds fitted on Friday. Both of my AV cabinets turned up on Friday, but one was damaged so i've got to wait a few days for a raplacement to arrive. But I made up the one that was good so I could at least get the amp in and the speakers connected. I gave the system a whirl on Saturday night.
Was it worth the six year wait? Nah, it was rubbish.
Not really. It was stonkingly good. The projector I plumped for was the Optima HD33, shooting a 106" image onto a glass-beaded remote control screen. The image is just brilliant. Blurays look fantastc, Hd tv looks great and the 3D is something else. To anyone that is on the fence about getting a HD33, just get it. For £999 (from Sevenoaks. Sometimes Amazon have it for a grand, too, but their prices fluctuate wildly, between £1000 and £1400) you can't go wrong.
I will chuck up some pics when the second AV cab turns up this week.
