Did you ever consider something like the Cambridge Audio Minx systems? They produce a big soundstage, but are diminutive in size, such that a center speaker would not obtrude at all.

If you're a Philips "Phanatic", why not wait for the Fidelio B5, or the Zenit wireless home theater products?

Room reflections

That's hard to predict without trying. At least you have, essentially, four walls, with three reflecting surfaces.

The Yamahas have the ability to focus their beans in an adaptive way, and you...

No need for a receiver as the Yamaha is self -amplified.

It will work best in a "box-like" room with four solid walls (reflecting surfaces).

dsinger is correct. A little further research supports his statement that the Darbee unit is 2k in and out. The reviewer was apparently upscaling the Darblet enhanced signal as dsinger suggested.

I can't speak to that, but the reviewer says he used the Darbee DVP 5000 with a Sony 4K Projector.

The Orion Cinemascope looks great in the video (though I wouldn't mind 4k :D), as do the other devices.

Isn't there a way you could mount the soundbar higher...even if above the TV? I can't help but think that the rear kitchen wall might make the auto-calibration work better.
