Frank, I finally got around to clicking the link in your sig to check out your HT rig. I like seeing all the equipment, rather than having it hidden in a closet and behind a screen. Beautiful work, my friend!

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

That's one part of the hobby I also enjoy is the appreciation of HT components, you spend the money why hide them. For many it's a bothersome having them in front of you because of the lights but you get so used to it at times your so enwrapped in the film you tend to forget their there. It's also good if any trouble occurs you can catch the error, having them hidden tends to make it harder.

Thats a hard one Butsu as its personal choice. Ive heard of velodyne and they are a great sub so are many out there. Most subs can sound good in a well treated room, I guess some better than others. Can you audition one and that will give you a good idea how it will sound in your room.

Im happy with mine as it replaced the focal profile SW908 and they suit the size of my room.

Hey Frank.

We touched on this briefly in a PM regarding the SD LOTR not looking great on your big rig. Got me thinking, I still have a few LDs laying around. Wondering if you ever pop in an LD and what it looks like on your big screen? Also, do you have the AVP or your RS10 do the upscaling?

I don't have an LD player. I use the HD Dvd XE-1 to the upscaling of SD. I guess when your used to to blu Ray, SD cannot compare.

I was just curious how less-than-stellar material looked on a big screen. To be honest, I haven't spun LDs in years. Still have a few and a player though. Just in case...

Sorry waboman it's been one of those day SD material does not look that crash hot on a big screen it just doesn't cut it. I guess that's the con in having a big screen but then again I haven't tried an oppo...

No worries, Frank.

Say, are you thinking about getting a new blu-ray player? I have the Oppo and haven't had any issues with it at all. However, McIntosh is coming out with their first BD player. Oh, the temptation is killing me...

I'm loving my front projection setup. Watched two movies last night. Monsters vs. Aliens (with the family) and Gran Torino (after they went to bed). For my room, I believe I made the right screen choice. It's like a big ol' plasma hanging on my wall.

Hey Waboman,

Good to see your enjoying your setup, don't blame you it must look sensational have to agree with you with the screen they are sensational. Once you done 100+hrs on your globe you might want to look into ISF calibrations, then your in for a real treat.

I'm not getting the OPPO as I rareley watch SD but I've heard many great things about them regarding SD playback.McIntosh bringing out a BD player intrested to see how it looks and performs!!

Btw pics please of your new aquisitions

I was going to ask you about ISF calibration. I need to find a reputable calibrator in my area who does front projection and is familiar with the CMS on my projector. How did you go about tracking down your calibrator in Aussie?

I would love to get the upcoming Mac blu-ray player. Unfortunately, at $8k I will be sitting this one out. Someday my friend, someday...

I quickly took these pics tonight with a rather cheap camera. Nothing special. Also, I have made no adjustments to the projector at all. Well, I actually turned the iris down a bit. That's it.

Did someone throw up in your pizza?


Kidding, looks delicious. I prefer plain ol' pepperoni though. Yum. Deep dish sounds good. Might do that tomorrow.

Hey Waboman those pics look sensational and that Pizza looks tasty ( your making me hungry man ).

Once you hit 100+ hours on your globe get the projector calibrated and you will be in for a real treat, though the JVC out of the box are very good you will be suprised.

Ive had mine calibrated 2 weeks ago ( check sig ) and the outcome is sensational, would recommend it for all projector owners. The guy who calibrates here in Australia is apparentley the best in the country (Australia).

Send me a Pm with your email address and I can send you the results of my calibrations results and it will give you an idea what to expect.

Take care my friend

Lol. I too appreciate meat on my pizza. Sadly, the wife is a veg-head, and as you know, ya gots to keep the gals happy. Pepperoni is good, but a bit greasy for me. My meat of choice is grilled chicken. I know, I know, it's not very traditional, but it's good nonetheless. However, the best pizza topping hands down is green olives. Love 'em!

OHYEAH32 and FRANIN, great theaters! I hope they each sound as good as they look. OHYEAH32, that screen! Holy hell man! I had never heard an Martin Logan electrostatic until last year and my brother and I were blown away at the sound. The sales guy played something like latin jazz with hand claps and percussion mixed with spanish guitars and everything sounded so alive and "there" in the best sense of the word. The guitars had the proper weight and texture while the hand claps were surreal.

Again, looks great.
