Home Theater pics n gear

Ok, I'm looking for ideas and specs on gear so I'd also like to see some pics of your home theater setup if you don't mind sharing. Any details or product reviews would be awesome as well, I'm looking at a vivitek 3200 lumens projector no clue if it's worth it's weight in lead but that's what I'm hoping to learn. Thanks in advance!

I use to do HT for a living and still do it as a hobby. What kind of question do you have? how much money are you wanting to spend? Are you an audiophile or do you just want to feel the thump in the chest?

Definitely a budget setup, would like to keep it very basic just want a good picture and good sound nothing too fancy. Don't care for earth shattering bass just good sound since I'm partially deaf in one ear, that's the one I tell my wife is my good ear.

be very cautious with projectors, you get what you pay for. Any ebay auction non major brand imported from china is junk. Make sure you invest in a reputable brand.

How far are you sitting from the screen? How much ambient light? How "Technical" are you? Are you just watching movies or using for all TV viewing?

This would definitely be for movie viewing only, I have two rooms that I could possibly use, one is 20 feet and the other is about 25 both are well lit with 4-5 windows each. My original plan was to use the family room and mount the projector and retractable screen to the ceiling. I think with most projectors I could probably get a 100" screen with 15 feet of throw anything bigger would require more room which would be better suited for the larger room. Technical? As in home theater or as in electronics in general?
