Fired up the first 5 downlight today. The sense I get is that the colors of the materials look clean and natural. And indeed the color temp holds over the dimming range. Couldn't be happier. :)

Yes, I want to avoid cool white. I'll be able to say more in a week or so. Carpet just went in, lighting going up in a few days, seating soon after, so all the dominant color choices will be gathered.

The gray speakers behind the rear seats are located on the side walls, but they are not "side surrounds." They are the rear surrounds. This is the location I'm suggesting instead of where you had...

I would favor the MLP (front row center), and put the side surrounds at 11'. For the rears, at 7' spacing on the rear wall (the blue units), that comes out to an angle of 165 deg from the MLP,...

In my first theater, the color temp came from the use of MR-16 halogens. That's about 3000k at full brightness, which I liked for their clean white light. But I always ran them well dimmed, where...

I heard that the next AV prepros will support 13.2 outputs. So I ordered 6 instead of 4 of the KEF speakers, as I already had enough plywood on hand for the cabinets. Low cost, low risk. We'll see....
