Hello Frank!

It's about time! The room and system looks outstanding!

The projector and anamorphic lens looks nice also!
Because of the screen height, do you ever worry about reflection off the ceiling, especially during bright scenes? I know the gray paint absorbs a lot of it. Normally, the conventional positioning calls for the screen to be at least 12 inches from the ceiling.

Regards.

Thanks ldgibson76. There is very little reflection actually. I was worried at first but the grey paint did a great job absorbing it.

Thanks mate. With the screenshots im going to wait and get a descent camera. My small canon won't do it any justice. Actually I will add a shot from the front of the room to the back tomorrow.

Great work! With those two new pics, you really get a feel for the room. I love your acoustic panels. I bet your HT room really rocks! I keep checking my mailbox for an invite, but it's always empty...

Hello Frank.

The room is impressive. Since the modifications, which movie have you watched that really revealed the improvements? (had the most audio and visual impact).

I love how you've implemented the rear in-ceiling speakers.
If I recall correctly you told me previously that the rears are Focals and the sides/surrounds are of a different manufacturer but share similar driver and tweeter material (very unique) allowing them to be timbre-matched, right? What's the name of the other Manufacturer?

Regards.

Hi ldgibson76,

The speakers are Sonance and there Beryluim which are the same as my Focals. Audio wise is fantastic I love it and most movies sound great.Room treatment and having my room HAA calibrated and Subs Calibrated professionally has certainly made a difference. We can't forget Audyssey(The the cheery on top).
Going anamorphic had a big night and day difference for me and my first films I had to watch was the Star Wars Trilogy and seeing the Star Destroyers come across the screen in that size is mind blowing. Im looking forward to watch LOTR on BD, Just can't wait for its release.

Frank, I do recall discussing the beryllium tweeters with you a while back. Thanks for refreshing the memory! The brain cells like to take a few hours off every now and then!

Looks great Franin. After I get my TT, the cc1000be and surrounds will be next. So I guess that the all of the Focal speakers blend very nicely together. How big is you room?

I have been good. Just slowly saving up for my turn table.
Converted to feet(you know us U.S citizens ) That would be 13.12fx16.40f.
My room is smaller than that. I am at 9.5fx12.5f. How big is that screen? And how far back are you sitting from it?
I only have a little 34in TV. But the picture still looks great. I will get my TT in Oct. So sometime next year I will be able to get the new speakers. Again, great work on putting together an awesome system.

Thank you Mike.

The screen is 117: and its a 2:37:1 scope size which is nice. Im sitting 4m back which is 13.12 feet. Any larger in screen it becomes to big its just right at that size.

What type of TurnTable are you looking at Mike?

Wow. To me, 117in is pretty big. I guess I sit about 10-11 feet from my front wall. I don't know how big I could go to be honest. The screen looks high of the ground. Unless it is just the perspective. Do you know how high the bottom of the screen is from the floor? I don't think a projector will happen in this room. I am getting the Well Tempered Amadeus GTA. I heard it one time at a show and really liked it. My room is my biggest constraint but there is nothing I can do about at this time. But I am very happy with my setup.
