I was speaking with a builder today and they said they can totally custom build me a house to suit my needs including raising ceilings to 3.6m if needed and work within 12 - 13k per sqm. But im sure there is things I can do that will make the theatre room a lot better and would love some clues. This is a great build here and puts my local cinema to shame!

Hi,

Happy to answer any questions but I couldn't seem to find one in there ! smile.gif

Wow, I don't even know where to begin. It turned out excellent, ... the aesthetic is right up my alley! The relative dimensions, scale of each element to one another ... just perfect.


I'm curious what some of your impressive demonstration materials are?

Thanks FOH.

My demos are normally music only and I always start with plain old CD -

Peter Gabriel + Kate Bush - Don't Give Up
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Sarah McLachlan - various tracks
Moby - various tracks
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Steve Miller Band - I Want to Make the World Turn Around
Harry Connick Jr - She

Then it's onto music in surround -

Steely Dan - Gaucho - this is a DTS encoded CD
Steve Miller Band - Fly Like an Eagle - also a DTS encoded CD
Jeff Wayne - War of the Worlds - SACD (this is probably the single best surround sound mix I've ever heard)
Pink Floyd - DSOTM - Blu-ray + WYWH - Blu-ray

And finally concerts on DVD or Blu-ray -

Pink
Jesse Cook
Supertramp
Boz Scaggs
Eagles
Fleetwood Mac
Spandau Ballet
Bee Gees

Plus lot's more I can't think of right now.
