Wow, that room is spectacular! Really nicely done!

Who designed it?

With the curved screen, are you using an A-lens?

Does the distortion bother you vs. a flat screen?

Do you think it will be okay from the side seats?

Flat vs curved is one of the decisions I've been struggling with.

You might find that you end up wanting one for audio and another one for your inkjet:

TQ... appreciate the sentiments. I love these old fashioned theater design. Reminds me of the hay day of movies back in the black and white days...

I really liked what dlbeck did with his theater, TheSavoy, and basically used it as a starting template. And then it's just about my own tastes in terms of what sort of wood, colors, carpeting, design,.. etc..

Of course, I had to take into consideration all the Acoustics I am going to need. They are all basically hidden in the design (behind acoustically transparent cloth, or behind wood, etc). Speakers are also hidden and not easily seen.

I am using the Sony 500ES 4K projector. It has lens memory, so an A-Lens is not necessary. Also, I am using the curve screen from SeymourAV (with the XD material), and since it's a 16:9 screen, the curve is gentle and I did not notice anything wrong with it. You just need to zoom in a bit into the 'black velvets'.

I too initially had a lot of questions regarding using a curve 16:9 screen to give me an Imax feel, and now that i have installed it, i must say it's great! Definitely more immersive for me. I can also sit very close, less than 10 feet from a 10 feet wide screen with the Sony 4K projector and it's great!!!

There isn't any distortion at all that i can notice. Probably due to the gentle curve.

My screen is basically wall to wall.. and yes, from any side it's just as great.

I won't go back to flat after the curve i have.. BTW: mine is 10 feet wide and 16:9 so I can's speak for other ratios and bigger or curvier screens.

The room looks fantastic. Nice choices on everything. When do the seats arrive?

Thanks RMK!!

If everything goes according to plan, the seats should arrive by tomorrow. The truck driver already called me today to make an appointment.

I have also hired another truck to help me get my speakers to the new house. (he's only bringing 2 men, which i fear is not enough to lug my OS down the stairs so i'll have to get another guy, prob one of those still working at my new house to help out).

Today, we put up the screen, but starting tomorrow, the carpentry work continues around the screen area (which is currently left alone as the screen needs to fit in nicely).

I made the screen into a 'door' with hinges so it's easy for me to access the back. The seymour screens are really robust and I am glad this worked.

Very cool Mr. Coolgeek. You are now the happy and rightfully proud owner of one of Malaysia's finest Home Theaters.

Again, congrats!

Dude, Phil 3's.....or those Salks. IF I sell the ls-6's, it will be one of those two that takes their place upstairs for my living room setup.

Some of you may remember the jazz/drum tracks on the gtg playlist...Tidal has a 'Whiplash' movie inspired playlist that has some great drum tracks to run your setup thru it that's very similar to the gtg favs many of us loved...The live dynamic detailed sound from the jayterz makes me wish I could place a pair of full range jayterz in the family room if they were less 'pretty'...Btw, anyone remember what the title of those gtg drum tracks were?

The only negative I've experienced up to now is the occasional drop out when I first start playing tracks...could just be my router....And the app doesn't always respond to commands immediately. Even with these two issues, there is hardly any artist I couldn't find. Still highly recommend trying the trial
I am not using tidal, but Deezer which is essentially the same thing, pretty cool stuff for sure either way. The main track from the g2g is the "drum and bass demo" from nils lofgren.

Glad you are still loving the slight room change. I will be accepting photos of room-related layout questions via PM or email address. My fee is slightly (much) less than other competing room designers.
