Home Entertainment Discussion

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I honestly can't say too much about them. I'm out of da fuckin loop when it comes to that stuff. The boys pushing 5 and we're not too far off from the two of us enjoying flicks together. Popcorn shit like Ironman. Once that starts I'm fairly confident I’ll get the theater bug again but I haven’t bought a piece of home theater equipment in about 3 years and that's just crazy. My shit is considered ancient.

Personally... and I know I've said it before but, I was dropping 6/7k on a 42 inch plasma back in the day. Prices just keep coming down. The newest thing are these monster displays for 4/5k. Give it two years and all the manufactures will be pushing 80+ inch displays for 2.5k. I say if you have a nice display already, wait it out for a while.

Wouldn't an etch a sketch be better for the environment?

Actually, no, the projectors can use a lot more energy than the newest LED LCDs but I don't watch a lot of TV or movies so probably use way less power for entertainment than the average household (also the LED Flash HD MacBook is very efficient for a lot of stuff I do watch) ...I read books...you know what those are right?!...I sure the fuck hope you are reading anything and everything to the kid...or is he going to be a high school drop-out patronage appointed daddies boy just like you :P

Yeah got a 47" on boxing day, it's good for a coupla years, its just tempting to try out the 70" eventually when the prices come down a tad as you said.

I was going to rip you about talking books in a home theatre thread butt.....

then i looked at the title and it said 'home entertainment' so I took pause.

having my basement done soon, getting through all the subs (with my contractor who better have fucking insurance after what you told me in that other thread!! :shock: ) So I'm in for a new TV and certainly a new amp/receiver and am thinking of one of the Anthem ones for around 2k.

However, budgets are getting pretty crazy and I'm trying to understand where all the money is going. Basement is 750 sq ft and by estimates on some research and such it appears 100$/sq ft was on par with costs. Contractor says ball park before some other quotes come in is over 100k right now but it's all ball park.

first off there is some pretty major... shit there's a thread for this stuff right? fuck it too late now... infrastructure work re: plumbing, heating and electrical to deal with, at least 20k worth but 80k for the rest of the space? Seems steep.

Donny I'm looking at you here for guidance. Designers have come up with a pretty good plan but it does not seem excessive other than some mill work and 'styling features' but am I off the mark? Anyone, Bueller?
