I did some measurements. The drawings are rough, particularly the side profile of the room. I know the slant of the ceiling is off but it gives you an idea. The measurements are spot on though. Also,...

If I got a W1080ST, I think I could get 120+, unless I'm not using the calculator right.

I could just fit a 70" TV in between the windows.

Thanks.

Hey everyone,

It took a while but I finally got back and was able to take some measurements. I'm attaching a not-even-close-to-scale drawing I did.

Hey Kirk,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm on vacation right now but I'll be back in two weeks and I'll take detailed measurements of the room. I have some general ones that I used to set up the...

Thanks AV_I.

The BenQ short throw looks like it might be the best solution. I'm going to put the sheet back up, spread the speakers a little more apart, do some detailed measurements of the room...

Thanks for the replies so far. This has been really helpful.

Do you have any recommendations for a pull down screen and a projector? I was looking at the BenQ 1070 from reviews. But I'm getting a little confused when looking at the throw distance...

Looking for help from the projector gurus.

Hi all,

I'm considering putting a projector into the "Little Loft Home Theater" room in my sig.

I put up a sheet to see what kind of screen I could accommodate. The sheet that fits is about 80"...

I suspect the LS50 wouldn't sound worse in a cavity--although the rear port is not as optimal for placing into a cubby as a front port.

More to the point though, the LS50's and either the Q100's...

If you're putting the speakers in cubby holes in a cabinet, I would not spend the money on LS50's. Seems like a waste. Instead, I would use three Q100's--an excellent speaker. Put foam in the ports,...

I go back and forth on spending the extra to get X32.

I have a dedicated space where I can place my speakers and subs in optimal positions--which I measured--and I choose not to use Audyssey.

Denon X4000 reliable?

Hi,
I'm looking to purchase a new receiver. I was considering the Denon X4000 for eight hundred because it can calibrate two subs. But it is not a deal breaker as I can measure my sub positions and...

Suggestions for ambient lighting behind TV

I'm looking to put ambient lighting strips behind my 55" wall mounted Panasonic.

I'd like it to be a USB powered one since the power bridge behind my TV only accepts one plug.

It certainly wouldn't sound crappy. You might hear a difference in tonality. My gut is, with movies it won't make a significant difference. With multichannel music, the difference might be more...
