Building a Home Theater

I was able to buy an Acer XD1170 DLP projector last weekend. The price was low enough to fit my budget to build a home theater.

According to the specs, the lamp will last 2,000-3,000 hours and a bulb replacement will run to about P10,500 @ P5.25/hr. Now, 2,000 hours may not seem like a lot, but at (say) 3 hours per movie, that'll run to about 666 movies. Not bad, I think.

Now, all that's left is to build the Media Center for it.
