Thought it was time to give another update to the Home Theater Room.
The couch (black) has arrived at the store and I”m trying to figure out when I want to have it delivered to the house. I still have a TON of work on the gutting the office. I hope to get started on that this weekend. First thing I need to do is start boxing things and storing them in the closet. Then I hope (fingers crossed tightly) to take the desk out of the room. This will suck taking it down stairs. It sure was a pain bringing it up.
I got a 12% coupon in the mail from Best Buy so the girls and I went tonight to purchase the TV and stereo. We ended up not going with our original idea for the TV but instead stepped it up a notch at went with the Westinghouse 47in 1080P LCD monitor. I really don”t care that it doesn”t have an HD Tuner built in since I will have a COX HD DVR up there. Oh and now the bad news. For now I have decided to keep the Xbox 360 downstairs.
We also picked up a Sony HT-7000DH AV Receiver. This model comes with a DVD player that upscales to 720p and 1080i…I know no 1080p yet. One of the main reasons I went with this one was because of the inclusion of the DVD player and the fact that it has two HDMI inputs…one for the DVD player and the other will be used for the HD DVR. Oh yea it also came with an $80 gift card on my next purchase. I”m planning on spending that on the cabinet that will store the receiver, DVD, and HD DVR. The cabinet can be seen here but the picture makes it look like crap. With the $80 gift card and the 12% coupon the guy gave me back to use again J it should be just under $300 for it.
Wow what is next? Carpet and Paint. I”ll leave that for another update.
