Have you noticed any issues with certain source components, like cable boxes, "de-res" the component video output from full 1080p down to 480p due to the AACS?

No. I've never noticed it.

Audio panel thickness..

Hi mcascio ,

Its a great build, very inspirational. I'm doing a HT build right now & using 1/2 MDF for the base (wainscoting). How much thickness is your audio panels above? Does it project outside than the wainscoting? I coudnt able to find any OC703 in 1/2 inch thickness. Will it look ok if upper part of the wall protrudes out than the wainscot?

Thanks,
SS

I used 3/4" MDF for the lower portion of the wall. The fabric panels were also 3/4" thick so it worked out perfect for me. Any reason not to go with 3/4" MDF? I think it'll make life easier if you are building fabric frames for the upper portion. 1/2" panels may be flimsy and hard to get them straight.

If your upper wall does protrude and you are doing a chair rail, just add a 1/4" filler behind your chair rail. I don't think anyone would notice.

Hope that helps.

Is that thick enough to do acoustic panels on the walls, or just for fabric only panels?

I used denim on my walls instead of OC703. The denim was labeled as 1" thick but was actually 3/4". I believe, but you'll want to double check, that if you go with 1" OC703 that it may actually be 1". So I think others have to plan for that and build it out using furring strips.

Thank you for your reply. Where did you get the denim from?
