Thank you for sharing, looks great. I really enjoyed the videos. Looks like you can have some great times in that space with the light show and music. Curious how long this solo project took you? Just so you know right now both links go directly to the "making of" video you have to look around your channel to find the tour and pre-show demo. What is the announcer saying for those of us that don't speak Italian. I'm curious if it is personalized discussing your theater.

I don't think I've ever seen a pre-show done with such dramatic flair and light show, great job.

About 2 yars (spare time) and something close to 1000 hours of my work btw no one other worked to this project so, this is the total build time, all included.

Yes shame on me about it.. I done that just for my friends, as soon as possible I'll publish the international version.. As a summary, the speaker is only describing equipement "this is a GLORIOUS cinemascope screen handmade.. it sizes 122" bla bla bla - "And now let me introduces the terrible twins of the OAHC: Velodyne CHT15Q 1500W of raw RMS power" - "Lightning system is not based on freaky domotics but is true DMX512 controlled" and so... it's a quite simple presentation not designed for audiofiles and real A/V experts technicalities but just to impress our audience with some facts. I was inspired by the IMAX intro scaling it down of course!

I can assure you that the WOW factor is great, people get astonished. No one expect something like this.

As soon as possible I'll set up the REAL lightshow I'm working on it!

Take a look at the new ODEON ARENA DMX512 lightning system v2.0.

I like to call it the AmbiLIVE system.

Enjoy it

Ottimo lavoro. Sono stata in Italia in due occasioni e non è mai imbattuto in un home theater. Immagino che sono popolari con i tuoi amici. Il vostro progetto sembra grande. Spero che vi piaccia.

That's the best I could do with the help of Google translator. Thanks again for the pics and links. It's fun to see projects in other parts of the world.

Ahhh Italy. Italians have such great style. There was another fellow from Italy who also posted a unique HT. I love Italian style. Very modern and very different.

I Cannot Wait!

The name of my build says it all.
