Home Theater


Staff member
I finally gathered the equipment to install my home theater system. I've wanted to do this for a year or so.
Epson 880 projector
Elite 120" screen
Yamaha RX-V385 5.1
Dayton 5.1 speaker package
Ace mini PC

The screen is a retractable that mounts at ceiling height. I have a vaulted ceiling , so I purchased a adjustable ceiling mount for the projector. Enlisted my son's to install the cabling in the attic to receptacles in the wall by the Yamaha. So now I should be able to use cable/internet/bluetooth/DVD connections.

We'll see how it works out.


Next Round Is On Me
Looking forward to seeing your project come together. I always wanted a dedicated home theater, but took a left turn at hi-fi audio. As a result I have a listening room instead. I might convert it into a dual purpose room for both hobbies.

I have most of the system set up. The screen got lost in delivery. So now shopping for another. The Yamaha/Dayton combo is working out well. Just took some tuning to get it right. Mounted the projector and ran the cable. Crawling in the attic was a real pain. IMG_0801.JPG

Very cool! Congratulations on the HT setup.
I’m looking forward to the day I can build one as well. When I do I’m going with Yamaha like you’ve done. Excellent sounding receivers.
