Fan controller bought on the lunch break, picking up some Noctua fans on the way home. Sub amp and the AVR were the hottest ones after an hour of action movie ( already forgot which one, actually! )

Here's the back of the rack with 5 Noctua fans

(Unsynmetrical placement due to where that back air intake on the Marantz amp is placed)

Yeah, I'm not actively doing anything with it. I'm running a backup amp for the center channel, will need to have someone who can take a look at one of my Rotel 1090:s as it's not starting anymore. I know they've had relay issues, so I've actually bought new ones. But the old NAD has actually performed over expectation, so I haven't felt any need.

I'm mostly doing gardening at this time of year and fiddling with network at home now - had the optofiber guys over yesterday, so hopefully I will have 600/100 internet access this afternoon...
Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible to do a wireless uplink to another Ubiquiti Access Point inside the cinema - walls got too good for that. And I have not thought up a good path to run a cable either.

Daughter and a friend last used it last night for "Red Riding Hood"


The ceiling speakers have not been mounted, but since I'm not actively looking to get Atmos/DTS:X/Auro I feel no rush about it.

You sound too mellow! Must be all that gardening. Hands in the earth, one with nature, organic "stuff".
Good on ya!

Yeah, I'm turning into a hobbit!

I can now happily report that I've actually played golf with someone who went on to win The Open Championship. Who'd ever thought that that little cocky punk would be the one to bring home the first men's Major title to Sweden?

The Rotel 1090 "died" on me a while back (typical issue with relay in soft start) so I've had it in for service. A few people I really trust in this matter ( including probably the best power amp designer in Sweden) suggested running it instead of my NAD 208 in my living room stereo setup instead, and that change has been done. I've managed to clutter up the machine room for the cinema a bit, so it will probably be until I've done spring cleaning before I put the 208 in for center channel duty - but I'm in no real rush - the standin has performed better than expected.

Have fiddled with the lighting, so the screen lift up for a peek behind:


A few LED-tubes up behind the poles:


And now I no longer need to lift the screen to show off the speakers, just turn the light on:


And some more tubes for main lighting instead of the temporary that had started to become more than temporary:


And finally a little mood picture (bonus points for identifying the movie):

End of last week the weatherstation's indoor thermostat texted me about abnormal temperature in the cinema and the graph showed that the radiator had gone bananas in the middle of the night, so it was to pull the plug on it.

Have put in a small temporary mobile one for now, but the whole thing prompted me to put a fixed one in. Just as with the lights before, it was a temporary solution that got stuck for a while. But now I'm painting one to put on the back wall in a permanent capacity:


It's a low power oil-filled radiator, should be all that's needed. Will probably put a remote-control switch on it, so I can turn it off remotely if needed - or possibly use an external thermostat as well as the built-in.

My first reaction was, you've still got green grass?...then I realized.

I think I'm having the same problem with my Bryston soft start. My son is going to university in Peterborough, so the only excuse that I have for not bringing it to Bryston is the 30 pounds of equipment sitting on top of it. Oh, and a few cables to disconnect.

Well, with Bryston warranties, by all means get it there... or have them send a new card possibly, if it's that modular inside.

It's leek, actually. And it will get a haircut once or twice before it's time to transplant them into the garden.

And now it's up.... will probably take a few days to tune in the thermostat...


Quite pleased... disappeared much better than feared.

If you simply took up the floor, you could install radiant floor heating...

It's not a floor, it's a bass trap.

No thanks, this is fine. Hardly noticable and is something happens - easily replacable. And one thing that I've learned is that getting things to look as good after having been dismantled is not the easiest thing... and so irritating when you know how good it used to look like... Carpet is NOT moved by anything short of a disaster.
