Yesterday, Peter M (and later Elill) turned up to check out what had been done and to see if I had not been doctoring up the photos I had been uploading here. After about 15-20 minutes of watching the Home Theatre Demo Disc 2 by Scuba Steve, I decided to extend my meagre 145 inch screen zoom out to 157 inch 2.4 for Peter to see how large his screen would be once his room is built. All I can say is that almost 160 inches of screen is MASSIVE. I can only imagine how immersive Tony 123's 168 inch screen is! But we had to get to work before settling in for the day. After all, it was DANLEY DAY!
I had been storing these two Behemoth Boxes in a room at my house and prior to that in the garage of my parents' home. I had been waiting a long, long time to get these monsters assembled and was pretty keen to get it done.
Unpacking the kit, my initial impression was one of quality. Danley have obviously set up some high quality equipment to get these components machined with such precision. This became evident later when we put the first unit together and apart from some very gentle persuasion to get one of the internal walls into the top dado, it fit together beautifully. We ended up getting two of the cabinets assembled in about 5-6 hours. Anyway, here are some photos of the days progress....
Lunch is Served - Dominos Pizza and Fat Yak beers. mmmmmmm. The DTS-10 makes an excellent servery!
Two cabinets completed and ready for driver installation. There are certainly a lot of screws in this kit. Combined with the glue, this unit is just about bulletproof. We then moved the subs into the theatre before the drivers are installed as it may have been hard once those drivers are in. They are bloody heavy.
Had a great day putting the kits together with very few swear words used. Thanks for turning up later Peter 'Elill'. The celebratory Coopers Pale Ale were welcome.
Step by step, I am getting there. Mini-split was installed this week. Makes the room so much more comfortable and is nice and quiet during movies. Need to finish the wall timbers this week (hopefully) and then I can give some thought to carpet and ordering wall coverings.
Happy New Year everyone! Hope that 2012 brings you every happiness.
