I find it interesting you decided to go with cheese all the way around Dennis, but then again...maybe I don't. Will this be your protege's first time out of the chute for calibration, or are you getting the "hear no evil" boys to take care of it.

You have the disadvantage of not seeing (a) the complete treatment and (b) what else is going on around the room.

They get first crack, then I, the speaker designer and some men in black from San Rafael will finish it off.

I remain disadvantaged then, and dutifully wait until said project is completed. Tell the guys good luck! Looks like a great one to cut your teeth on!

I believe with this particular model you set the rough height of the center column with a pin, and then spin the handle to make fine adjustments or raise/lower things on the fly.

Just a fantastic theater!!! The wood is to die for.

I wish we had people like you Dennis in Japan. Or better yet, you should open a Japan branch!

I was going to get one of those. Then I remembered I didn't have 40 grand laying around.

What a warm, elegant, inviting space! Would you mind explaining how the coffered ceiling works to achieve an acoustical advantage? To my uninformed eyes, it looks like it would have both diffusion and focusing effects.

Such a stunning room, but I'm not a huge fan of red, it doesn't quite do it for me. That said the woodwork well and truely makes up for it, beautiful. I like the remote as well....just a small thing

So, Elill, when you buy the house, just snap out the fabric panels and change the color. Simple.

The ceiling is diffusive...there's no "focusing". The ceiling was installed after the drywall...not the lights are imbedded in the coffers and do not penetrate the drywall barrier around the room.

Nah I'd rather just build another new house and have you do the theatre next time ......unfortunately you'll be long retired before that happens again. I like greens or blues better, but thats just me

As I said, its extremely impressive, a truely special space, another one in the AVS Hall of Fame

I could always retire in Tonga (been there). It's a short flight to Sydney.

This is a FANTASTIC piece of work!! Kudos! It makes me feel like totally inadequate. I have the space and the aspiration, but not the big bucks to pay for it just yet (not with a mortgage and college tuition). This is truly inspirational.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Hey Dennis, with all that trimwork on the bottom half don't you have to worry about all of the reflections?

Look very closely at that lower panel work.
The top is further out from the wall than the bottom. Reflections are directed into the carpet.

Ingenious, you cant see it from the pictures - the angle must be ever so slight....add that to the "to do list", very clever indeed, royal pain for you're builder though, depending on how they did it.

We did the construction and millwork ... meaning the pain was all ours.

One good aspect of the design is that since you had all that trim work, you could place all your cabling between the trim and the drywall (if that is allowed by code). Then you could really minimize the penetrations of the drywall, get better sound isolation and have better access to cables in the future. Is that what you did?
