Gorgeous theater !

Yes I would agree. Those were taken before their was any zone convergence done on the projector. At the far edges of the screen i would say things were at least 1 pixel out. But i think with the E-Shift turned on, which it is in the picture, might be a reason it looks more out. It didn't look that far out to the naked eye. I think the camera is just capturing the shifting.

But after performing the zone by zone convergence it is perfect!

I will take some more pictures shortly with the test pattern and E-Shift turned off.

Tremendous set up. That gaming use of 3D is pretty cool. Thanks for updating.

But since it was added, WOW, what a difference. ARC really made a significant improvement to the room sound quality. Now as I have gotten more in-tune to the audio aspect, I am strongly considering moving into a JBL synthesis ATLAS system. But that may take a back seat for a while too....


I'd also recommend Triad, Seaton Sound, and Procella speakers for your room. Though, at some point you'd need to do some remodeling of your side columns to accommodate their matching surround speakers.

Your awesome looking theater is just getting ever more ...um... awesomer and awesomer!

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Have you tried any console gaming on the RS55 yet? I read in a another thread that input lag is a problem with this projector... I was close to pulling the trigger, but that would be a deal-breaker for me...

Basically. His favorite thing to do is get up on the back of the couch and pounce down on the other dogs. He is basically in attack mode. But in a playful way!

Really nice job on the theater. I'm interested in the VPL-VW1000ES and I was wondering how you find the black level compared to the JVC and how much overall improvement you find with the Sony vs. JVC. Is it incremental or really a game changer?

Honestly. With 1080p content I would honestly say I think they are very comparable. I have not compared them side by side, but from just a money stand point I would be hard pressed to say its worth the difference.

But......

I got a new graphics card today that allows me to output 4k to the 1000. Now that is a game changer. And really the only way to begin to grasp what the Sony is capable of. I was blown away viewing native 4k photos!!!!

Do you use your ceiling fan very often? I can imagine that screen would sway back and forth if you wanted a bit of air movement in the room while watching the screen.

By the way, are you hiring for a house manager or otherwise looking at adopting a 40 year old guy?

You have a fantastic theater. Love the RBH speakers. Been using their speakers in my family room since the 90's. Heck most people would be tickled to death to own your family room set up. Would be interested in how the Sony would compare against the Titan.

I can second that recommendation on speakers. Triad and Seaton based on reputation and user reviews and Procella from my own personal experience. I would love to see your theater decked out with a full blown Procella system so I can drool in envy...because based on how you go about things you only know one way...FULL BLOWN!

I have heard numerous great things about Procella recently. I will have to try to get a demo of those somewhere. Genelec and JBL Synthesis also on my list.

I have heard the JLB synthesis system and was pretty impressed. I just need to try to get a good demo of the Genelec and Procella systems.

I never did a direct comparison between the Sony and the Titan.

I did do a comparison between the DP Highlite and the Sony. With 1080P content they are very comparable. Keep in mind this is not my primary viewing room and so it very light colored, which works more against the Sony since its black levels are definitely superior.

I have missed the extra brightness I had with the DP. Keep in mind I had the 3500 Lumen model in my family room, not the 2000 lumen model. And considering the room has very little light control, the DP shines way better during the day.

With 4K content, there is no comparison!

I have listened to the all of the above and I think they all have their strengths. I bought a pair of Genelec 6010's and the matching 5040 sub for my office and fell in love. The HTS4b subwoofer I purchased is incredible, very deep, clean, and fast. I would recommend reading the custom installation manual, it provides great insight into the scientific approach taken.

a big shout out for Genelec!!! I love them!! Also helps to have the best Genelec tuner in the country as my best friend. I had a pair of those hts4b's in my last theater room and jumped up to the HTS6. I would like to hear Procella's matched up to the Genelec's.

I was thinking you might turn up on this thread. Did your friend design the acoustic treatments? I've been following your build and was going to buy one of your subs when it was listed, but was beat to the punch. I am in the initial stages of designing my next genelec theater.
