I already have a 7.1 surround sound Home Theatre. In a few weeks I take delivery of a 9.2/11.2 channel surround sound receiver from Onkyo. I too will be building my own home theater when my house is built, so I will have a dedicated HT with full lighting control. I will be purchasing an Epson Projector in readiness for the move, but will not be going down the 3D route.
