For me the most encouraging thing for Atmos at home taking off is that the receivers already announced can create the Atmos effect almost with a current 7.1 or even 5.1 set up. They need to advertise...

From what I'm reading the lens solution introduces it's own artifacts, in the form of distortion and scaling artifacts. Sounds like the thing to do is forget the curved screen, it would look cool but...

I should have clarified further. I'd also like the cinema scope screen to curved, can that be done without a special lens?

Excellent, I'm going for the gusto then, a 140" screen. 140" shouldn't be too large, and I won't lose any height the screen already has on my current 120" 16:9 screen.

I'd assumed the curvature would help the brightness. Otherwise a 140" would be acceptable. But can I do one of those sizes without a lens?

Yeah the seating will be around 12ft from the screen. I do worry about the image being dimmer, but it's just something I'll have to get used to.

140 might be a happy enough medium, don't think...

Good call, do it right from the get go. I went to rivesaudio.com and they do have "dealers" in Colorado. The basement will be the theater room, so they can analyze before the room even gets framed?
