This theater design is truly extraordinary. I would have loved to have seen the full 4K projector with UK designed pro speakers, bur I know that working with Peter Lyngdorf the sound in this theater is going to be astonishing. I have had the good fortune to spend some time in Peter's company a few years ago and he is a real gentleman to deal with, but has a staggeringly sharp mind and he was discussing concepts with me about where he would like to take surround sound processors and room correction which were years ahead of what the silicon and R&D funding would allow him to do.
The whole project looks like it will be stunning when it is finished, but one design decision has intrigued me. You mentioned in a previous post you were building a HTPC using 8 X 1 TB SSD's. Why did you choose to go with the 8 TB SSD storage system instead of using a remotely located NAS? A remote NAS could easily give you more than 20TB of RAID protected storage for less than you're looking at for the SSD's alone, it would still be more than fast enough to stream the movie over 1 Gb/s network cabling, and would give you the security of redundancy, not to mention lower cost expansion.
Thanks and best wishes,
