There should be no detriment to voltage at that level. Do you find that anything's wrong? Most (all) equipment should be able to handle 120volts +/- X, where X could be 10 volts or so, and anything...

I suggest you bring the speakers into the room more -- as in several feet more. They're too close to the walls. In addition to GIK, there are also Realtraps, which is what I used. The best...

I see they emailed me, saying that SketchUp Make (whatever this is) is free after 30 days. That's good, as it'll take me a while to get into this program.

That Sketchup is a bit steep if you want the real version. Is it really only a 30 day trial? That's really not much time.

Are there any 2017 TVs with 3D? I know LG dropped 3D from their OLED line. I'm not sure about projectors, but 3D seems to be dead except in theaters.

What about a B6/C6/E6 in a brightly lit room? Our room goes from very bright during the day (sliding glass door right next to the TV) to relatively light controlled at night.
