For sweet audio, Tron: Legacy, The Daniel Craig Bond films, Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow, Guardians of the Galaxy, Looper, Kill Bill Vol 1...just a few off the top of my head.

I didn't go into much detail, but an AT screen is amazing not only for hiding speakers, but being able to use identical speakers across the front, which is ideal. When I was able to move my speakers...

Rad idea, but I don't know if I could commit to that. My favourite movies are not static. I'd probably have some rare earth magnets put into the risers and have new movie faceplates with magnets...

I have only seen Divergent so far, but I agree with that assessment. The Hunger Games really didn't draw me in that much. The only saving grace in those movies, for me, was the eye candy of...

I second the idea of having a darker screen (darkest grey but not black) wall, then one or two tones lighter on the side and back walls. I would go with a wine (Remington Red looks close) or maroon...

I've always thought their song "Supremacy" would make a pretty damned good Bond movie song (the bowstring instruments totally sound like the Bond theme).

As I said, the QS8's...

If I were in your situation (new build), there's no way in hell I'd even consider speaker modules as an option for 3D sound. I'd pre-wire your room for 9.1.6, as I really feel that's all that is...

Good thing I used the 603's as my front ceiling speakers, then. ;)

They are 91dB sensitive. You will be fine. If you listen at reference level, then you may want to consider something a little more brutish for an amp. Putting it into perspective, I have an...
