Haha, sorry about that. It is a good film for Demo purposes. Razor Sharp picture clarity and reference quality audio. I love the intro for Oblivion too for demos.

I probably agree with you. The general public liked them in order : Pacific Rim, Godzilla, Battleship. They were all major summer blockbuster "big fight scene" movies. I doubt I'd ever...

Gotcha! I can't comment on the technicalities, however I will say that the audio was great, it was just the movie itself I didn't like.

Tim, I agree, I play my movies the same way (Not quite reference volume but hot subs) and I mentioned reference level to get the point across that it was very loud in there. I do agree that things...

You are right. Really what you are paying for are the basics. Overhead lighting, Drywall, outlets, paint, and carpet. Builders usually all do things one way. Even if you say it is a...

I would think this isn't bad, except you don't need the wall where the TV is. You sound like you are big into fantasy if you want multiple screens going. Some projectors and such will do split...
