First of all, we are making our own house and its gonna be ready in an year or maybe less than that. I wanna make a home theater room too.

TV or HD projector or HD 3D projector?
- I know I'm not gonna get TV instead I'm gonna get projector and im confused should I get a 3D HD projector or the normal HD projector. Again, house is gonna be ready in an year or maybe less than that and its still in the planning process. If u look at the future which one should i get? I saw in some website that LG made a new 3D projector thats coming in May next year and cost 10,000 bucks. I dont wanna buy outdated technology and then upgrade it.
Screen Size?

How big should the room should be? I wanna get biggest possible screen size like 200 inch or maybe more than that =p.
I will consult with home theatre expert guy how to design a room and everything.
Sound isn't a issue as thats the easy part to figure out but again suggestions are very welcome. Sound system? speakers? cost?
Again its not something I wanna spend huge amount of money. Let's say around $20,000

Thanks :D

By the time you're ready to purchase the hardware, Ultra HD (4K) projectors should be readily available. I think 3D is a personal choice. I've never found it necessary and have never considered it, myself.

Most consumer level projectors tend to max out at around 150" display screen size. You can go larger, but the image quality suffers. Not to mention the throw distance becomes more than the size of most rooms.

Head over to Projector Central to find out more information.

Hi, annalongse. Mentioning that you want a 200" or bigger screen, and a budget around $20,000 don't really go together, if you're talking about a true home theater in the conventional sense. Also, don't expect the sound to be "the easy part to figure out" if you're going to go about this in a serious fashion. Setting up your room with proper sound treatments, room correction can be very complex and involved. Head on over to avsforum.com and search through the home theater threads there.
