Thank you very much! This has excellent potential, I am very appreciative for this. The link has given me some other ideas too. smile.gif

Cheers!

There are four towers. I will go for the same amount of towers when the Revel arrive too.

My every experience with them has been fantastic, they are what I am looking for and meet my tastes for both sound and aesthetic. Excellent for the money biggrin.gif

Looks like they are having fun :)

Beautiful speakers

I am so excited still. Probably a good sign.

I can't wait to get them home. I still have to place my order, but I need to finish my flooring first, then arrange for their shipping.

How do you access your equipment from the back side? Very nice!

It's back!! Wine of the Week! Clos Martinet Tinto, Priorat DOCa, Spain ~$60. If you've not had a good Priorat, you've not truly tried Spain's smallest, yet most unique terroir.

Thanks!

There is an entrance in the mechanical room, then the wire can accessed inside of smaller 4' x 3' room. The racks come into the room another 22", so it is cozy. smile.gif

Here are some pictures of the big upgrades I did by adding an all Revel Performa3 11 channel theatre, with 2 Paradigm Reference Studio Sub15's. Sounds amazing. We also upgraded our seating in the front row to now include a couch with reclining leg rests, because mom wanted more family cuddle time and the individual theatre seats did not allow. I miss the cup holders most of all.

Yours was one of the first theater builds that got me hooked on AVS and this hobby 5 long years ago. Haven't checked in for a while but saw your post in the Completed Theaters thread so thought I would have a look. Yowza! Some serious equipment upgrades. Do you continue to get as much enjoyment from using the theater as you obviously have from building it?

My room is extremely modest compared to yours, but the experience still sucks me in completely when a great movie is playing. Almost scary how much I enjoy sitting motionless for hours on end.

My latest additions: 3 Mark Levinson No.532h amps, and a Paradigm Sub2.

The Mark Levinson will be biamping the front left/center/right. Sub2 to be installed this weekend.

SO, how was the overall sound increased when you went to the Revel Performa 3's? Which made the biggest improvement? The new Subs? The New Center Channel?

Secondly, how much was the increase with the Levinson amps? This is such a great build! I would love to hear how the sonics increased in such a well built room! This is awesome!
