$1000 for a home theater
Hi guys,

I don't have much money, but I'd like to enjoy home theater with my roommates. We have a room with a large wall. The video projector could be setup 18' away from the wall.

I know, some of you are like "do it right or don't do it at all", but the situation is what it is, we don't have a big budget, but we'd like to enjoy some movies on a big screen for cheap (gosh, when $1000 became cheap :confused: ).

- We are willing to get low HD 720p
- no 3D is fine (we never really enjoyed any 3D movie in theaters)
- Sound's system can be stereo only (even if a 5.1 could be nice)
- We'd like to watch movie from netflix and/or amazon
- Room can be set pretty dark so no need of a high lumens device

What would be your choices for the device?

So far I've been thinking about the HD20 optoma + appleTV + painting the wall for video-projection ( I found an article to do it for around a $100). I'm kind of worried about the sound system though.

You have less money and want to enjoy home theater with roommates. Just visit any online discount website like,,, etc and find a discount offer of your need.

I have found my favorite one at That was not much costly neither with too much facilities.

Let me know if solution work for you.

In your situation, I would recommend you to wait for sometime to get the price of home theater systems to lower down. Other than that you can always consider buying a used one from online shops.
