Indeed there s plenty of glass in that room. The long sliding/stacker doors will be covered with thick acoustic curtains when in use.
The boss also kind of allowed me to have panels BUT must not be dull and boring.
As such I have been looking for some nice panels and my dealer came up with vicoustics. They look great,,have different range and looks.
I will have the wood bass trap in 3 corners, absorbers on the back wall and first reflection point in the left hand side, wood block diffusers on the ceiling.
The screen will be a 120inch 2.35 format ( wall dividing the media and storage room) acoustically transparent. I ve decided on going 3 x focal iw706. The front wall, will be covered in the lower range of absorbers from vicoustics as all hidden behind the screen. Basically the screen will cover the whole width of the wall, from the adjacent wall to the door leading into the storage.
Seating will be a chaise sofa( chaise pushed hard against the left hand side, not the best spot to seat but it s not my seat anyway. I will be right in the middle of the screen
The sofa will be raised a little on a platform, and I will have 3 or 4 bean bags on the floor for kids....
Av wise, all gear for both the family and media room will be stored in the storage room in a av cabinet, all controlled by 2 control4 system..
The media room, will have a yamaha rxa2020 plus a wyred for sound mc3 for front duties and let the receiver handle the rears and surrounds, until more processor come on the market.
I just wished there was a processor that focused on sound and picture without any bells and whistle at a reasonable price...
Projector wise, m not sure yet, either the panasonic 8000 ( as it s got the lens memory) or may be a benq w7500 witha lumagen mini as to have 2.35 on the fly.
Hope this helps understand what my needs are.
Any advice you provide will be greatlY appreciated.
