I just hope they continue to support the home theater market. Their last projector is now 2.5 years old. They seem to be the only company that puts in lens memory under $5,000 which is a must have...

If they came in black I'd get some for my theater, the two step lights in the riser don't cut it. In hindsight I should have put some down firing lights in my side columns.

That's a tough call, GTR is an awesome car, maintenance on it adds up very quickly and I drive an M3 convertible year round (that's what snow tires are for) so I know a little about maintenance.

4k is what I'm waiting on. I have a unused bulb for my Panasonic 4k so I have at least 3 years before I would "need" either another bulb or replacement projector.

Leading edge of the riser trim is rounded over with a router bit. The front and right side (as you face it) of the small step is the same.

Where the carpet butts up to it is flat, nothing done...

I'd suggest one row of theater recliners in the prime seating position and a bar with stools in the back. You could probably fit 6 people in back and three in the middle row or even four if you...

The riser is 6' and really should be 7'. Six feet puts the first row only 9' from the screen; which I don't mind but might be too close for some. For movies like Cloverfield with a lot of shaky...

The only seat impacted is the one under the soffit, I have to bend just slightly if I'm heading to the back row (usually just for vacuuming) but then I'm only 5' 8".

I couldn't see making a theater room for two people, four maybe not two. The same reasoning why many get a 3 row vehicle, it's not like you use it every day but it's nice to have when you want it.
