Thanks Steve. The panels make a huge difference. I am glad that I came up with the idea of mounting the on-wall speakers in front of the panels. I am really pleased with the image and sound in this room. It sounds fantastic. The Planar throws a wonderful image.
I like the image that the Planar PD7130 throws, but I wish the throw on my Marantz VP-12S4 would work in this room. The 12S4 has blanking, which means when I am showing movies in 2.35 I can blank out (make black) the top and bottom bars on the screen. In other words built in masking. It is a great feature. The 12S4 has three memories so I have one set for top and bottom bars a second set for side bars and a third for letterbox. The 12S4 can only throw a 92" image in my small room and I did not want to go that small.
