Update ;

I'll be moving to "Utrecht" in the next month and i gave away my yamaha yst-sw800 1kW sub to my inlaw. can still listen to this as he lives around the corner :-)
The yst-1500 didn't survive, amp plate fried and it was too expensive to repair. Thinking of building a custom sub with the Peerles woofer, but i'm too busy with new house and work for a while.
so the new line will be:

Utrecht (Terwijde) - SVS PB13 Ultra DSP - DaJoJo

Klipsch fronts 2xRF-82-II 150W 33Hz-24KHz , center RC-64-II 200W 59Hz-24KHz , sides 2xRS-62-II 150W 50Hz-24KHz , rears 2xRB-81-II 150W 44Hz-24KHz , heights 2x Salora T25i
Yamaha RX-A3040, SVS PB13-Ultra 1000W 14-200hz
4 mm el cheapo wire / Samsung UE-ES8000S TV+evo 2014 / Optoma DH-1015 Sony PS3

I was fortunate to demo @beastaudio system this evening and it was loud and clean. He did not crank his system as loud as some of the other AVSers that I have been to but it was a very nice and well balance sound. I truly enjoyed it very much. His room is beautiful with sound treatment everywhere. It was my very first time listening to Atmos 7.1.4. Thanks for the demo @beastaudio .

^^ I didn't notice the screen moving at all at the level we were playing: 0 to +3MV with subs ~10db hot.

Good hanging with you to Mr Tony! I like how "He didn't crank his system as loud...." sounds like a relatively pedestrian evening at casual listening levels, when in fact we were usually between -5 and +3 reference depending on what we were listening to, haha!

I'm either lucky or blind, but where I mounted the screen to the ceiling (hanging by two lines) I get very little vibration. You can see it wobble a little on a flat color image or if I have the lights on behind the screen but during actual movie watching, you can't see a thing.
