How well does the Harmony do with marrying light with the AV? Can you set different scenes?

Nicely done, your HT is absolutely amazing. I like the modern look with the variable depth panels!

Sorry for my late reply, been busy with my new venture and away from the forum.

Oh, on a side note, the family was away for a couple weeks in early November. So I had a chance to invite a few friends and watch a movie @ -8db, wow, what an experience! We normally watch @ -13db already, but that 5db bump really make a world of difference. I think I can't watch anything less than -10db now.

I just installed it in the rack along with the custom faceplate yesterday. MA didn't have the dimension of the 4520Ci in their database, but I found the dimension graph from Denon's site for them to cut the faceplate for me. So now, they have it in their database now for those who needs it.



Do you order the custom face plates directly from MA or do you have another source?

I just ordered 2 custom Rack Shelves. Is the drawer above the 2U drawer?

Similar Setup - Question

I didn't know what I wanted to do with my bonus room (20x15) until I saw what you did with your space. Those pictures basically got me very motivated to start the work on my own theater room. I've started planning/drawing everything out and getting my speaker setup, projector, and furniture all layed out the best way that I've been able to read. I have similar setup of 2 rows of theater seating and the measurements to the front row comes out about the same as yours ~12.375 feet away.

One thing that I keep noticing is the the optimal viewing distance from a lot of websites keep saying "Screen Width x 1.6". I wanted to do a 120" projector (or maybe bigger), but a lot of the calculators I've run keep recommending a maximum of 113" diagonal for me. I've used the calculation of that 113" screen, which most projectors show around 98-99", and even the drawings show that the 113" screen is the max I should use. I noticed with your room, you went with 138" screen, which is way more than what I keep seeing I should do. If I can do that without running into compaints from friends that their necks hurting, headaches, etc. I would love to go bigger.

My question to you is, do you regret going that big of screen? Do you run into complaints from people sitting in the front row? Is it really that big of a deal to go outside that rule of "Screen Width x 1.6" distance to the seated area?

I am in a bonus room 19'x23' with a 126" wide screen. My seating is at 10'6" and 17' from screen which is 2' from front wall. We love it but my wife will only sit in rear row she says front is to close.

I asked a very similar question in this thread, thread posts 3104-3106 (page 104 of thread):
The Cinemar Home Theater Construction Thread

Mario of the Cinemar thread (the thread above)... has a 136" Wide (not diagonal) screen and his view was 'go bigger'...
* Front Row: 8'6" from Front of Seat to screen
* Screen: 136" Wide 2.35
VIEWING DISTANCE TO BOTTOM OF SCREEN FROM CENTER FRONT ROW
* SEAT INCLINED: 10' 5 1/2"
* SEAT DECLINED: 11' 2"

When I mapped all mine out and working around soffits, concern over light ouptut, etc., I am ending up with a 132" wide 2.35:1 screen, and my eye's will be in the 10'ish feet range. I don't have exact numbers, or personal endorsement yet though - since I am still working on my theater.

So many great ideas and a beautiful space. Good job. The staggered wall is a perfect solution to my space for acoustical purpose and hiding cables since it is a finished space. Thought of runnung furring strips to bring them off the wall a bit to route speaker wires.

For then 1"' 1.5" and 2" frames.....are they exact or deminsiomal? In otherwords, did you and Big rip them to size for exact measurements or off the shelf ( 2x2 is actually 1.75x1.75, 1" board is actually .75 etc).


Thanks in advance for the ideas and again...amazing job.
