In case anyone is interested, the quote below from the Seymour website - in particular the line in bold - is what convinced me to go curved with an A-lens

Quote:
Our curved frame option features a 40' radius, which is perfect for fixing the pincushion, or bow-tie shaped distortion from anamorphic lenses that stretch a 16:9 ratio projector to 2.37. Using an anamorphic lens will improve your resolution by 33%, your light output by up to 20%, and immersion by three mojos.
Well, and finding a UH-480 for less than $1K helped too So far, I've been fortunate to find the big ticket stuff at sale prices. The exceptions to that are the screen and the carpet. Oh, did I mention I ordered carpet last week? Humph. I guess my memory is getting bad

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

I don't remember any carpet... I especially don't remember seeing any carpet.

I think TMcG is the deal master on the forums. He was the one that put me on the lens. There are a lot of deals to be had on eBay, but you have to keep looking. Takes lots of patience to sort through all the overpriced junk.

That's a fact. TMcG finds all the deals. He's not afraid to have champagne tastes on malt liquor budget, and he's making it happen. I would be afraid to commit to the designs he's implementing for fear of not finding the deal and being forced to pay retail - but he's making it work.

So, what's the carpet schedule, J_P_A?

First week of June at the moment. There are still a few things that I need to finish up. I don't think I took a picture of the carpet, so I can't post it, but it is patterned (think waves). It's a very obvious pattern if you look at it in one direction, but very subtle from the other three. We are going to have to be careful about the direction they install it.

I'm getting pretty stoked about this! My plan is to get the trim up (with the exception of the base boards), and possibly get the supports for my screen up before the carpet goes in. This will only leave getting the acoustic treatments in and then the fabric frames. But I'm still hoping to the treatments in stages. I have them all, already. We'll just have to see how much time I have to spend on it.
